Room & Suite (69)


A beautiful, traditional hotel set amongst secluded gardens, yet close to the centre of Cardiff, the St. Mellons Hotel was originally a large country house. With high standards of service and an emphasis on luxury, today the hotel comprises 41 en suite bedrooms, all stylishly furnished, as well as a wealth of leisure facilities including swimming pool, Spa Works beauty salon and rejuvenating spa amenities. Guests seeking the finest cuisine can indulge their curiosity at our Llanarthan Restaurant. Outside the hotel, guests can take a relaxing wander in the extensive hotel grounds or discover the sights and sounds of Cardiff only a short journey away. We acknowledge the gracious living of an earlier age, yet appreciate the contemporary desires of today's guests.

An old world hotel with a quirky character. Room was warm and spacious with a large bathroom. Everything was clean but a refresh is probably required. Excellent breakfast and great service. They say the house was built in 1878 and unfortunately they must still have the original

Great place. We had a wedding there on Sat 24th. Amazing experience. Best hotel I have stopped at. You will never please everyone, but its an old hotel and some of the lacking TLC adds to the character. We loved it and the staff were brilliant.
