We have just returned after a three-night stay at The St David's Hotel & Spa. On arriving, the hotel looks as impressive as the images we had seen online when booking and were delighted to be told on checking in that we had been upgraded to a Master Suite (we had booked a Junior Suite) at no cost. We went... More

Parking not available due to wedding reception. Balcony dirty. Double bed is two singles. Pub singer totally spoilt ambience in restaurant. "He's our most popular!" we were told. The menu is so limited for dinner. We were given pudding sorbets after our starter for some bizarre reason. We were then offered tea and coffee before our main meal? Breakfast is... More

The bed was massive and very comfortable with soft feather pillows. The en suite bathroom was very spacious, the decor had a luxury feel. The Living room felt very cosy as... More

I booked this hotel for my boyfriends 20th birthday for one night and it definitely did not disappoint. I contacted the hotel before hand to let them know it was his birthday and they gave us loads of complimentary goodies in our room which was fab!

Stayed for a night with my husband, great view but room needs refurbishment. £15 to park car as a guest was a bit extreme too. Stayed in many 5* hotels and this one not up to standard I'm afraid to say.
