We staed at The Cambrian for one night in early August 2011, so this review is based on a very short stay on only one occasion.
On arrival there were no parking spaces available, despite us having booked one in advance through Mr & Mrs Smith. We were on a road trip in our own car which I wasn't happy to park down the street - after being insistent, they agreed to move their minibus so that we could park at the front of the hotel.
The design of the public areas and rooms is very good. Modern but in keeping with the Swiss chalet look and quite relaxing. Bathroom and room were a decent size, plus very clean and everything worked well. Balcony view across the valley is stunning.
Spa areas are nice but very busy (we stayed on a Saturday), plus two teenagers were pretty much going to 3rd base in the outdoor pool. Staff in the spa are thin on the ground.
The restaurant is cripplingly expensive - the a la carte menu is more expensive than The Ledbury in London and the food is more Swiss Beefeater than Le Gavroche. Guigal Cote du Rhone was about 75 euros a bottle!!
I wouldn't say avoid this hotel, but I would avoid the restaurant and keep the stay to 2/3 nights.
