First time home to cardiff with my family, was hoping to impress my wife and kids with a fabulous trip to my home town. From the 5* rating and online pics, i was expecting so much more. Rooms dated, capets in room dirty. No usable lobby, just the bar/resurant. Car parking ridiculous, even if you get a space it will... More

I agree with previous reviews that this hotel should be classified as a good 3 star hotel - I do not know how they got their 5 star classification. The rooms are grubby and worn. When we checked into our room there was a very obvious clump of dust/dirt on the carpet beside the balcony door. This remained there for... More

I booked two rooms at St. David’s hotel and Spa directly with the hotel by telephone rather than placing the reservation through an agent because I wanted to specifically discuss requirements for the weekend and to make special requests. However, on check in it was clear that our requests had not been acted upon and that reception knew little of... More

Staying here on business for one night, I selected the hotel because of its location overlooking Cardiff Bay. All rooms will have a great view over water. Mine was only on the second floor but still had a great view. The spa facilities were excellent and very relaxing after a long day - I had never heard of a jacuzzi... More

Stayed here a couple of times for weddings, last time being at the beginning of July this year, not five star service from all staff, though the concierge team were very good. Breakfast wasn't anything special either. Annoyingly they charge £15 to park your car! After you've payed £180 plus for accommodation I feel is a bit of a liberty,... More

Just returned from a 1 night stay in a junior suite, booked for our ruby wedding anniversary. My requests on booking for an upper room facing Penarth were all met. Room had standard decor but with beautiful views on two sides, and a nice touch was an anniversary card and a bottle of wine in the room.
