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...

Rooms were nothing more than average , windows were filthy and the carpets very stained , I stayed in a junior suite. When in the bar after spending over £90 I asked if there was any chocolate cake available, was told yes and a rectangle as big as my little finger turned up with a bill for £22.99, definitely better...

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.

Booked the junior suite for my partner as a surprise birthday treat. We arrived earlier to use the spa facilities before checking in. The reception staff were fabulous and very helpful and friendly which was great to see. The spa is nice but is in need of some TLC. I've been to nicer places. The temperature in the pool is...

The staff at the hotel was fantastic. They could not have been nicer. The rooms and views were wonderful. The spa, pool, work out room, all top notch. The only complaint is the restaurant. Very disorganized. Takes forever to be seated (had a breakfast and a dinner there). The wait staff seems very aloof, and we were waited on by...
