The inquest heard that Haydn Evans was escorted to a back door at Carden Park Hotel, asked if he wanted a taxi and left to wander off, despite the fact he had been drinking, it was a freezing cold night and he was only wearing a shirt and trousers.
The coroner told the jury the hearing would help expose what he called the 'less than perfect' procedures there, and how steps had been taken to avoid it happening again.
Giving evidence, staff and management at the hotel admitted that, with hindsight, the matter should have been handled differently.
After the inquest, a spokesman for the De Vere Group, which runs Carden Park, told ITV Wales they extend their 'sincerest sympathies' to Haydn's family. He said 'the events leading up to his death and the actions that have been taken subsequent to his death were documented in the inquest.'
