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. The reception staff were also very helpful and welcoming, finding adjoining rooms for ourselves... More

We had a really good nights sleep in a comfy bed with lovely pillows and linen. We also found the staff in the bar in the evening were very professional and attentive. But apart from that, we were extremely disappointed - we've heard good things from Cardiff locals about the luxury of this 5* Hotel, but could not find any... More

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

Spent about 20 nights at the St. Davids in October 2014 while on business. This hotel is way over-rated. Expensive, not particularly well maintained, and less than enthusiastic front desk staff. Hardly what I expected, given the hotel's reputation with the locals. Hardly world class. Better off staying in downtown Cardiff...

I stayed one night on business so no time to try out the spa or restaurant. The hotel itself is very stylish and modern - I'm surprised by some of the other reviews that criticise the rooms - mine was newly refurbished, very comfortable and very large for a city hotel. Breakfast was the ususal full choice buffet but nothing... More

We stayed here for one night on a package for our anniversary, on arrival we had been upgraded and when we arrived in the room the bed was covered with rose petals in the shape of a heart and the towels had been made into the shape of an elephant and chocolates were presented on a slate tray. The room... More

I visited here for a meeting on the 11 Dec this hotel is in desperate need of a makeover. I live in Cardiff and expected more. Really let's the city and Cardiff Bay down. The toilet was dirty and hand drier was out of order. Not what I would expect from a so called 5 star hotel. Very disappointing
