Very nice hotel, I stayed in a room overlooking Cardiff Bay which had a balcony with spectacular views of the bay. The room was extremely comfortable, clean and well appointed unfortunately the air conditioning did not work adequately and so the room was far too hot, with the only way to cool it down to wedge the balcony door open...

The hotel is overrated to begin with. The room had weird smell in it upon arrival; the carpet was dirty as well. The view wasn't as promised. I requested another room; so they showed me the other two available; however the smell was there in all the rooms; and the price that they offered me wasn't worth the change as...

We had a one night stay at this lovely hotel to celebrate my husbands birthday with a trip to Cardiff. We usually stay at another nearby hotel when visiting the city but will now use this hotel for any future visits. Its location to the bay is superb and it also has easy access to and from the M4 motorway....

Very helpful and knowledgeable staff, Preet on reception was wonderful, helping to sort out the intricacies of an upgrade. Wonderful room with added extras (wine and fruit etc) views in two directions (Room 709) . Not far to walk to bars, restaurants etc. Went for a university graduation, all the family could meet, sit and chat etc in our lounge...

We visited the hotel to celebrate our wedding anniversary and from the moment we arrived we were made very welcome. Our Room on the 7th Floor was very clean and looked as if it had recently been partly refurbished. We used the bar area during the afternoon and evening and the staff were very pleasant and helpful.

I stayed her on Friday evening. Before we checked in we had lunch in the bar which was lovely and I would highly recommend. Unfortunately our room wasn't up to the standard I would expect for a 5 star. The hotel overall is modern but the rooms are very out dated and in need of refurbishment urgently. You could defiantly...

Our room had a nice balcony with amazing views. The room was a good size, and the bathroom had both tub and shower. We found the air-conditioning climate nice and comfortable. Best was the quiet location (Room 501) where we could hear no one. The staff could not have been nicer. I would love to return to the St. David's...

Easy to find from the main road, plenty of parking available, but be aware there is a £15 charge each night which was understandable as you are down the bay.
