Throughout your stay nothing is too much trouble, as the guest is the centre of the beautiful surroundings. The team make you feel relaxed from the moment you walk in and we ensure we take everyone to their room and talk you through the 1807LU25 facilities. In addition to this, there are also the little touches such as fresh milk and freshly filtered water in your fridge, personally laundered fluffy towels and crisp white robes. The view from most of the rooms, the restaurant, terraces, gallery and our amazing spa and hydrotherapy pool are simply stunning. It will make you appreciate this beautiful part of Wales to live in, and totally gives you the ‘WOW’ factor as you arrive, dine and relax. The expectations of the guests are higher and higher all of the time and as such the hotel has to live up to the expectation. Hence why you will see many comments about our cleanliness, which is second to none. We only use the very best and that goes from cutlery to linen to local produce and the right people on our team. Here at St Brides Spa Hotel, we are constantly listening to our guests’ feedback for where we can improve, what we can do more of and what’s not needed. This also goes for technology as making a reservation for first time guests is better done on the phone rather than online or through a third party so that we can explain the difference room types, get your session for the thermal suites and hydrotherapy pool booked and secure you a table for dinner. This is where we see our technology evolving in the short term, particularly for return guests who know how the hotel works and what they want. The future is all about getting better and better and exceeding guest expectations each and every time they come back. Most of all, we are constantly evolving the menus to suit the seasonality, as well as ensuring that everything is well maintained, clean and offers our guests an exceptional and friendly service all year round.
