We chose to stay at St David's for my partners birthday after having stayed many times and really enjoying our visits. Unfortunatly things seem to have changed considerably, having payed over £230 for a one night stay I expected far more! On arrival at our room we were greeted with 2 packets of crisps and a packet of waffles, bearly... More

As a frequent visitor to Cardiff we will now use St David's having been sadly disappointed on the the last 3 visits to our usual central hotel!! We love the relaxed but professionalism of the staff from check in to check out. Views from all the rooms we have stayed in are outstanding. Being honest we have had better breakfasts... More

My husband and I went her for our wedding anniversary, a gift from my parents. We were really looking forward to having a lovely massage and relaxing in the spa and tea room. When we arrived we were told they had run out of robes and we would have to wait 10 minutes for new ones to come, but were... More

Visiting friends in Penarth just before Christmas, so stayed here one night. It was really lovely. Efficient, polite and friendly staff. Room on 7th floor with magnificent views and a balcony overlooking the bay - incredible.... I have a fear of heights but the views were worth going on the balcony! Room was great - quiet, large, with a huge... More

Our break promised so much but unfortunately we were left without the wow and sparkle that we would expect from a 5* hotel. From our arrival where we found no welcome and no assistance with bags tot he check in where reception staff seemingly failed to grasp that we had two nights booked but had done so as separate bookings....

We stayed in the master suite for 1 night an couldn't fault the room at all, great views of the bay from the lounge area and a very comfy bed, there were some minor signs of age but nothing to make a fuss about, the Spa however is in need of renovation to make it 5* standard, despite this, we...

The hotel was difficult to find and I received a £75 fine for driving down a bus lane :( The car park is very busy and if you arrived late you would struggle to find a space, there is also a £15 charge for parking. The room was spotless with a lovely view of the Bay with a balcony. The... More

Perfect place to stay when in Wales. Great food in the restaurant - including afternoon tea - and a stunning location with great views from every room. Best of all is great staff and good service from the events team should you think about holding an event here.
