This is a hotel that I have used a few times before ... so I knew what I was letting myself in for!! Lets start with the plus point - it is across the road from St Davids railway station and therefore extremely convenient as a journey start/finish point if travelling around the West Country by rail.
Now to the reality - it is a former British Transport Hotel - and appears to have seen little spent on it since those days. Old décor/fittings in the rooms accessed through a "main" entrance that also doubles as the access to the public bar. Have only sampled the English breakfast (adequate) and not even seen the food menu otherwise. Oh and the breakfast serving time is an hour later on a Monday (puts me off staying on a Sunday night).
To sum up the appearance of this hotel in 2 words - "uncared for".
