I booked the St David's Spa Hotel for my wife's 'special' birthday. We had the very top corner suite and the views were pretty spectacular. The hotel is very nice, and was obviously tip top when new, but is just starting to show a little bit of age… chipped paint here and there and the odd scuff on furniture, but... More

Stopped here for two nights to celebrate my wife's big birthday A lovely hotel in a great location. Booked a superior room which was to give us a balcony but was offered an upgrade which we took and ended up in a deluxe room The view from the balcony across the Bay to Penarth and beyond to the Bristol Channel...

Had a great stay in the St David's spa. Staff couldn't help you more. Rooms immaculate and well updated. Spa area good. Food was lovely and a lot of selection on the breakfast. Only bad points are breakfast is a bit expensive at £18 each and the car park in my opinion should be at a discounted rate and not... More

The food on this occasion was very poor. UNIMAGINATIVE, INSUFFICIENT NOT TO BE RECOMMENDED FOR FUNCTION. The room was so over crowded any form. of service was impossible and worst of all we sat with soiled plates in front of us long after the meal was over. A massive disappointment.

Amazing experience from arrival to leaving. I booked the Harlech Suite (designed by Maddonna) and I have to say the room was amazing. I booked it for my fiancees birthday and from the moment i arrived with her we were treated amazingly. The Room service and front desk were superbly professional and made my fiancee feel like royalty. We were... More

We stayed here for a wedding recently. The "discount" rate that we paid was an extortionate £180 for one nights stay for a dated looking room. At least the room was big and the pillows were comfy.. but it looks as though we were upgraded but they forgot to tell us because when we saw the rooms the rest of... More

We stayed for a Sunday night & asked for a better room we were given room 113 which has floor to ceiling windows on two sides so don't be afraid of asking for upgrade as they are happy to oblige. Room, bathroom & bed were massive. Didn't eat at the hotel so can' comment about food this time, breakfast is... More

The hotel is well placed for the excellent Bay Area and offers good sized rooms and huge beds. We had a good view over part of the bay and a balcony. We slept well and all was quiet. The air con was too noisy to be left on at night though. The bathroom is showing its age but the toiletries... More

Booked St Davids for a one night stay after a night out in Cardiff. The room was booked through Amazon local deals and not a bad deal either to be honest. On arrival we were told we had been given a complimentary room upgrade, so that was a nice surprise. The room itself was excellent, very modern, very clean and... More

I did not stay at the hotel but visited for afternoon tea for my Mothers birthday. The hotel is beautiful and the staff were very helpful and attentive. There was around 18 different teas which the waitress took time to explain every one of us. We had the prosecco afternoon tea which was lovely. The food was really filling and... More
