Please be aware that there is a carpark fee of £15 per night at this hotel. This fee is not mentioned when you book online and therefore is a nasty hidden extra. Opposite the hotel there is also a council carpark but this is also £15 for 24 hours.

Really enjoyed staying at St Davids. Had a room on the 7th floor, amazing views over Cardiff Bay and Mermaid Quay. Tired decor in room and bathroom. Could have used an update. Spa facilities were very good, hydro jet pool and a 15m swimming pool. Access into hydrojet pool is tricky, very slippy and handrail doesnt lend itself to the...

Have been a few times now and feel a weighted average of four stars is about right. Service here always excellent - efficient and friendly. Views second to none - arguably the best in any Cardiff restaurant actually. Meats always very high quality and there's always the right wine for the meal you want. On my most recent visit I...

This was the second trip to St Davids, as we had visited 3 years ago and had been bowled over by the quality at this 5 star hotel. However this recent visit has lacked the wow factor, mostly the hotel needs some updating in areas and cleaning ( outside verandas and windows need a good clean!) Our room was a...

The hotel was very nice. Bedroom very spacious. It was very expensive to drink and eat in the hotel. Example for 2 large wines and 2 pints of larger it was £30.We did not stay in after this to eat or drink. Staff where friendly. Lots of places close by to eat and drink.
