I stayed here for one night on a business trip and was impressed with the views. The food was very nice and the staff were very helpful. The iron in the room wasn't very good but it still did the job. There are tea and coffee making facilities in the room which were helpful. The shower was rubbish and needs...

My husband booked 2 nights in January for us and my 15 year old son as a Christmas gift. Trying to contact the hotel direct before our stay was a little frustrating as you get through to a call centre where they really don't have a clue about accommodation etc. Eventually managed to speak directly with the hotel and they...

We were recommended to The St Davids Hotel as the place to stay when visiting Cardiff and we weren't disappointed. From being greeted by the very helpful and friendly concierge who sorted the bags and parked the car, to the reception staff to the room staff, everyone couldn't have been more helpful. We were slightly apprehensive having read some of...

From the minuet we arrived to the minuet we left, our whole experience here was fantastic. Our room was beautiful, and had a stunning view of Cardiff Bay. It was nice to spend quality time with my partner, sat down watching the sun go down. The Spa was fantastic! Although the chlorine was a little high the overall spa was...

We were a large table of 11 people for dinner. The service took a long time despite the restaurant being far from full. The rare steak I ordered was well done, something which really baffles me. A colleague ordered a steak which they brought with prawns. He sent it back saying he was very allergic, so they scraped the prawns...

This was simply a wonderful experience from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out! Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed and were told that we'd got an upgrade to a Superior Room on the 7th floor. The room itself was spacious and comfortable and we had a lovely view of the bay.

Impressive hotel. We had a lovely room overlooking Cardiff Bay within easy walking distance of Wales Millennium Centre. The view was so gorgeous, it was a shame to draw the curtains, the view of the lights was so pretty.
