The hotel is located behind somewhat looks like a rundown neighbourhood however when you drive passed all that - you will realise the prominent position it sits on. The staff are friendly however one can't but not notice the high proportion of Eastern Europeans working here...it does make you wonder as to if the Managers hiring are Eastern European? Their...

Stayed hre on a Sunday night recently with my pregnant girlfriend, location is lovely and I would imagine in the summer breathtaking. Room (117) was clean and spacious and also had a patio door going out onto a terrace (again ideal for the summer. Spa is great and the complimentary robes and slippers are a nice touch.

What can I say, from the valet parking to the reception hospitality, to the upgraded (free of charge room, to the beautifully design towel elephant, to the restaurant and bar. We couldn't complain about anything. Also speaking to a couple who use the St David twice a year supported the quality and service haven't deteriorated. Looking forward to going back... More

This was our third visit to the hotel and, once again, we were not disappointed. Unlike the previous reviewer, we were very pleased with the help we received from the concierge who unloaded our luggage from the car and delivered same very promptly to our room.

We had our office 'do on Friday night. The food was absolutely awful. Starter was the cheapest leek and potato soup, very salty. Main course was a turkey roast. Dry meat, raw vegetables (not al-dente, just raw), burned, chewy roast potatoes. Desert was OK, but I'm happy with anything chocolatey, although my colleagues seemed to leave a lot on their... More
