From check in to check out we had a wonderful "Covid Safe" stay. The guy who checked us in was efficient, friendly and helpful. Our chilly lunch on the patio (with stunning views) was excellent, made better still by a friendly waiter. The suite was very clean and we felt very safe, Room service was excellent. Pre-covid we were staying over 200 nights a year in some of the best and most famous 5 star hotels across the World. The service we received, from the entire team, was just as good here at Voco St Davis as the service we've received from these so called 'famous' hotels. I hope the attentive service and genuine care shown to us as guests will sustain as the hotel returns to post-covid occupancy . My only slightly negative comment would be the bathrooms are not quite up to current design and standards and feel like an older Holiday Inn than. It's a shame the obvious (and excellent) room refresh has not been extended to the bathrooms. Even in our large suite they felt dated, so I'm guessing standard rooms will be worse. This however doesn't detract from the excellent stay and service. I have to say we were a little surprised just how good the service, the food, the staff were and its a credit to each and every member of the team and the management.

A truly exceptional stay! The staff couldn’t have done more to make our stay special. Particular thanks to Dominic & the staff in the spa. Great hotel, lovely facilities & fantastic food - inspite of restrictions meaning we could only have treatments and room service.

Don't get me wrong, its still a great hotel, perfect Bay location and amazing views, but this time it just didn't feel quite as luxury. With the pool and restaurant/bar closed due to the pandemic its difficult to really rate the overall hotel fairly. This is just based on our experience this time and mostly about the room selection. My family and I stayed here on the weekend for one night. I booked a double double room as we have 2 children and needed the other bed and this was the only room on the website that can accommodate the children. Having stayed at the hotel before and upgrading to a suite before, I know first hand just how good some of the rooms and views are and how luxurious this hotel can feel overall. So I was a little disappointed to see my pre arranged upgrade request couldn't be put through because none of the suites have 2 beds to accommodate the children. Instead we were given a double double on the 1st floor as the only option. The room was fine and there is still a view from the balcony/terrace, however this particular room was not quite the luxury we were expecting. In places it was looking pretty tired, most notably the bathroom which is in a real need for an upgrade (The blue and green tiles reminded me of a holiday Inn 25 years ago). The staff were perfectly helpful and apologetic about not being able to upgrade and we even received two free glasses of Prosecco to try and make up for this. Its just a shame, having been in lockdown this was a little break away and I purposely booked this hotel as a bit of a luxury and I walked away thinking it was just a fairly basic hotel stay. Its a shame that perhaps the hotel couldn't be slightly more accommodating towards guests with children who are quite willing to pay for an upgrade. Maybe some roll away beds could have been offered, which has been the case at other hotels around the world. The hotel was quite obviously very empty due to the pandemic and I just feel perhaps a little more could have been done to create a more memorable stay for me and my family. On the plus side, we felt the hotel was safe with quick check in and check out, sanitiser everywhere and room service delivered to your door. The staff were very nice, the room was clean and felt safe. The room service food was a little limited (Understandably) but was prepared and delivered quickly and was delicious. Cant fault it. I will stay at the hotel again but maybe not as a family stay. It seems its more suited as a couples/business trip sort of stay and when the pool and restaurant/bar are open after lockdown it will be back to being more of a luxury hotel again.

We were lucky enough to stay in the junior suit on the top floor of the St David’s hotel. From the moment we walked into reception we were greeted with a huge congratulatory welcome. They had even given us a wedding card from the staff which was very heartwarming. We got to the room and was gobsmacked by its size and gorgeous views across Cardiff Bay & Penarth. We had a lovely macaroon desert and bottle of champagne in our room, which we drank on the balcony as the sun went down. We ordered room service and had a pizza and burger. Before the food arrived, we were notified via a phone call to let us know it was on the way- which was greatly appreciated. The breakfast service was equally organised. Although the restaurant was not open due to the pandemic, there was no disruption from the 5* service - if anything they were even more attentive. I could not recommend this hotel stay enough - especially if you are lucky enough to get a suit. Thank you all!
