My family (husband, 2 sons & their partners) stayed with St Davids for 2 nights last week in 3 separate rooms. This was to celebrate both mine & my sons Birthdays. The accomodation and food were both excellent. We were extremely pleased with our stay and had a lovely time. We were very well looked after. The little extra personal...

It's impossible to fault this hotel, especially considering how cheap a one night stay is. I've stayed in plenty of 5* hotels and this one didn't disappoint. The bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious. All staff were excellent and the Spa was nice. I didn't dine in the restaurant however I did opt for late night room...

Don't for a second believe this to be a true 5* hotel. The hotel is in desperate need of a refresh, from the corporate soulless rooms to the signs of rust in the pool and sauna area, everything screams for a touch of love and attention. We returned to the hotel at midnight on a Saturday to find the only...

St David's is a modern 5 star hotel with fabulous views of Cardiff Bay. I stayed in large suite with glass walls looking right over the sea. It was very spectacular. There is also a very good swimming pool, sauna and spa on site. The rooms definitely had a high class feel. Would recommend if you are looking for a...

My sister-in-law and I stayed here last February and very much enjoyed our stay. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, they were very friendly and helpful,but (as it should be for a 5* hotel) never intrusive. We stayed for a spa weekend and enjoyed luxury treatments in luxury surroundings. The pool and hottub area were very clean and...

We enjoyed our 3 night stay in early December. Impressive building and good location. You have to note the 15 pounds per night car park fee - we parked in a street around 10 minutes away. Also breakfast was expensive so we didn't bother with that. We had problems with the air con the first night and unfortunately did not...
