Booked a Spa day with two friends. St David's couldn't have been more helpful. We had to change the chosen deal 3 times for different reasons and the staff went out of their way to help us. We booked for the monthly deal which included a facial and shoulder massage. The treatment was fab and so relaxing!! Lunch was included... More

On arrival the hotel looked quite impressive, right near the waterfront, close to all the amenities, but sadly we were disappointed with our room. We were charged £198 per night for a mini suite with balcony (apparently this was a discounted price). But on entering the room we found it no better than a Trave Lodge room with a balcony... More

Arrived to the hotel around 3pm, as the hotel car park was full we used the one next to it which was no problem and found a space straight away. But be prepared to pay £15 for 24 hours. Check in was quick and easy, as this was our second visit we familiar with the hotel. Our room was the... More

Warm and welcoming as soon as we arrived. Our room was so big & clean and couldn't of asked for a nicer room. The bed was probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on, did not want to get out of it! The jacuzzi area, very relaxing. And the breakfast was very nice. Will definitely be returning soon.... More

My partner booked this for a little getaway for my 30th. Was really looking forward to 5* treatment but I'm not sure how this is a 5* establishment. Yes it's lovely but a bit overpriced and not worth the hype. The spa was always packed and not as relaxing as I hoped as there was just way too many people... More

Spent the day here starting with breakfast which was excellent. Then off to the spa with use of all the facilities including treatments. Finished off with a superb evening meal. At all times the staff were friendly and efficient I would recommend it to anyone.

Nice location, walking distance to a bunch waterfront restaurants. Right on the water so there's some nice views. The hotel is clean. The staff are friendly and courteous but service can be quite slow.
