Me and my partner chose this hotel for a two night stay over my birthday and weren't disappointed. As you walked into the reception area the vast height was filled with an extravagant and impressively decorated Christmas tree aswell as nutcrackers in the revolving entry door. We had arrived too early to check in but had booked spa treatments in...

Great hotel, close to cardiff bay and mermaid quay. My tips for a relaxing stay, if staying at the hotel during the weekend: The spa ( pool, sauna, jacuzzi etc) gets very busy on a Saturday and isn't normally quiet until after 7pm. We went in after 8pm and there were 6 of us by the pool. The world and...

My husband and I have just returned from the hotel for a birthday break.

We stayed here for two nights (13th-15th January) - It was my first time at St Davids and I absolutely loved it! Our room on the 6th floor was very spacious, bright and airy with a fantastic sea-view. We both slept very well (however we did note that our "King Bed" was two single mattresses pushed together). Delicious breakfast and...

Lovely hotel, rooms are really nice and the staff are pleasant, friendly and helpful, the breakfast room could get very busy at times and had to queue and wait to get seated, but breakfast was nice. You are well looked after here and the views from the rooms are beautiful.
