I booked that room for my boyfriend's birthday... they prepared a plate with chocolates for his birthday and gave him a birthday card with vouchers for the spa and the hotel. Receptionists were really polite and room service was fantastic! No words for the view and the facilities... Had a posh afternoon in the spa.. and an amazing breakfast as... More

This is a really nice and well presented hotel. The staff are great and the views from the rooms are stunning. I had a room that overlooked the bay with a balcony and I was very impressed. The staff are friendly and very welcoming. The room itself is clean and modern

We decided on this hotel as it has some great reviews, and looked just the ticket for a romantic weekend away. The check in procedure was perfect, the staff couldn't have been more helpful if they tried. The room itself (Deluxe Double) was unexpectedly good, all the facilities we could require and more were present, apart from the mysterious case... More

The wow factor of this hotel is undoubtedly its location in Cardiff Bay with excellent views of the bay and beyond. The view from restaurant, spa and bedrooms gives the feeling of being on the water. All the staff I encountered in both the hotel and spa were pleasant, helpful and introduced themselves by name. I enjoyed a day in... More

It's good to return to the St David's. Always a warm reception even if the weather is not welcoming. I believe all rooms have a view over water which is good. Well appointed room with very comfortable bed. Up on the 5th floor this visit, room looking a little tired but fabulous view over Cardiff bay and City. Dinner at... More

Good value deal. Paid £90 for Sunday night. Beautiful views from bedroom. Made use of Spa. Lovely addition but needs much more seating around the pool. Central to all restaurants and Millennium Centre 5 minute walk. £12 for parking. Didn't have breakfast. Went to Wetherspoons which is just around the corner.
