The St David's Hotel, Cardiff, United Kingdom
Great hotel. But not 5 star I think
Lovely hotel. Lovely location. Lovely food. They didn’t observe the DND signs on my door. And woke me 5 times..! I think they make up the price of late check out when you ask. It’s different each time. One gentleman with mustache on reception very rude.
