          the spa facilities are fantastic.

          this hotel is not a 5star hotel,its grubby,needs to be painted,balconys filthy,expensive for what it is.staff not the friendlies bar reception staff.was very vary disappointed

        • Older travelers
          9.4

          Peaceful, fabulous view, comfortable beds, plenty to see nearby, lovely breakfast, smart but laid back.

          Towels and dressing gowns dumped in changing rooms.

        • Couple
          9.6

          Excellent hotel in a great location - seems that all the rooms enjoy a sea or bay view of some sort. Quality of the room was superb and spotlessly clean.

          Breakfast was a little disappointing considering the standard of the hotel and we didn't discover a lounge at all during our stay.

        • Couple
          10.0

          Room was superb. Upgraded to a junior suite where the view was amazing.

        • Single
          6.2

          Food was good although expensive

          This is not a 5* hotel. It's nice, and you will enjoy the stay but 5* it is not. It's a bit tired, staff are nice but not 5* trained, rooms are plain and inoffensive but not luxurious. Have no idea how this place got a 5* rating. Like I say, its ok, but not top class by any means.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Everything, faultless weekend

        • Couple
          9.6

          This is a very clean modern hotel with great facilities. Rooms are very comfortable. We had our own balcony which in Summer time would be amazing. The view of the bay and Mermaid key is excellent especially at night. The Pool and Spa area is lovely with good sized well equiped changing rooms. We have used several hotels in cardiff over the years, but this is the best so far.

          Had to pay an additional £8 to park my car.

        • Single
          7.0

          Location and presentation fantastic. Has a real wow factor and still manages to feel relaxed.

          The bar staff were awful. Waited at the bar for 5 minutes only to be told to sit down and wait to be served only to wait for a further 15 minutes. We then just walked out. Sort it out please! Oh and my bed was lumpy, perhaps if they let me buy a drink or two I would not have noticed it!

        • Couple
          6.2

          Although this hotel has good facilities it doesn't deserve 5 stars.

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          The hotel room was very tired & dated I have stayed in nicer three star hotels,the four star Novotel hotel down the road is a much more upto date and modern hotel, The St David's is most dissapointing for a five star hotel

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          The view across the bay. Having stayed in Cardiff many times before and looked out at the hotel, it was interesting to see it from the inside. Comfortable bed

          other people's noise! Wedding party in the foyer sounded like the local swimming pool! We could also hear our neighbours' televisions through the walls. We were disappointed in the self service cooked breakfast and would order from the menu with hindsight. It would have been nice to have a comfy chair or sofa in the room. Swimming pool was very dark.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          Loved the spa- the views from the room and location

        • Older travelers
          5.4

          We liked the spa and sauna facilaties, we liked the location,

          We were dissapointed at the quality of the breakfast,also that we had to ask twice how we get to the spa and still had to find it ourselves,I was very shocked to be charged £10 parking,when the ajoining council park was only £7,there was no working clock in our room,no mini bar,things we would expect in a 4* hotel,the noise from the heating in the room kept us awake for most of the night,we were also very dissapointed at the lack of xmas spirit and entertainment,as that was the reason for our break.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          the location, the service level,the breakfast buffet,the rooms the parking arrangements.

          service could have been better in the bar on one evening when it was very quiet

        • Older travelers
          9.2

          The view from 701!

          30 minute walk through an unkempt muslim ghetto to get to town centre! [Bute St....I Suppose I could have used l George Ave]
