Booked the junior suite for my partner as a surprise birthday treat. We arrived earlier to use the spa facilities before checking in. The reception staff were fabulous and very helpful and friendly which was great to see. The spa is nice but is in need of some TLC. I've been to nicer places. The temperature in the pool is...

The staff at the hotel was fantastic. They could not have been nicer. The rooms and views were wonderful. The spa, pool, work out room, all top notch. The only complaint is the restaurant. Very disorganized. Takes forever to be seated (had a breakfast and a dinner there). The wait staff seems very aloof, and we were waited on by...

The hotel itself is stunning, the staff friendly, rooms spotless and gorgeous views! Highly recommend the spa, facilities were very good and had a massage that look me to dream land. If you are looking for a spa break with friends or a romantic get away I would recommend. Disappointed I didn't have time to try the food!

I have stayed in St David's Hotel in Cardiff on a couple of occasions and have to say that there is definite potential. The situation of the hotel overlooking Cardiff Bay is spectacular, but hotel reception and "atrium" had a definite leisure centre feel (and smell) to it. Rooms were good, clean, well equipped and decently sized. Food - it...
