Comfortable with good acoustics

The seats are well placed so that many people get good views without craned necks! The acoustics are superb compared to some venues we have been to.

This was a fabulous venue. We were in the front row and the sound quality was just right. However I felt the staff could have dealt with a rowdy couple better. Apart from that the staff were very helpful.

Quite a big conference centre right in the middle of Cardiff but after the first two escalators it's pretty much stairs, stairs, stairs. A tad confusing finding your way around. Seating is comfortable and there are several areas for coffee. Staff very friendly and helpful.

I visited in March 2017 to see James Arthur who was absolutely amazing and the seats and view from my seats were great, couldn't fault them. The one thing I can fault is the absolutely shocking security!! Even the staff who had to show people to they're seats caused more problems than they needed too and this would completely put...

Excellent show, but great venue. I've seen lots of different shows here over the years, and the venue caters well for all of them. It's a 30+ year old venue, but never looks old. Bar prices are very competitive for the town centre.

Enjoyed the ease of booking tickets on the website, and then just attending the show of my choice. Really nice atmosphere and was a good quality time.

Really disappointed with our recent visit to St. Davids hall, my friends and I went to see James Arthur, who may I add was fantastic. However, the staff were very miserable and unhelpful. When we asked someone where our seats were they simply said 'that way' and pointed to the left. I paid over £120 for my friends and I... More

A fantastic theatre with good seating and very helpful staff. We saw the superbly funny Lee Nelson on 12th March and could have watched the whole show over again.

Went to see Lee nelson last night. It's a immediate place and is great to see live events. Prices of drinks are reasonable. Disabled access is good and plenty of room in all the seats. Easy to access from St davids 2 car park
