Overall a good Novotel property. Building is half warehouse conversion, half new build. The warehouse part of the building helps to give hotel character compared to many Novotel properties. Offers a consistent standard Novotel product so you know what you're going to get from a mid range brand. Two rooms booked both Superior Room booking category. Bathrooms varied between the... More

My partner & I stayed here for 1 night whilst attending an event in Cardiff. Check in was efficient, and unproblematic, and our room was large, quiet, clean and well equipt. There were a few light bulbs out in our room, but this didn't cause us a problem. The hotel is within walking distance of the main shopping area, restaurants... More

My daughter and I came to Cardiff on a shopping trip to celebrate her 10th birthday. We had always liked the look of Novotel and thought we'd treat ourselves seeing as it was a special occasion. A treat it was! We usually stay in the Travelodge but somehow I managed to bag a standard room here for not much more.... More

As a regular business visitor to Cardiff, I have stayed in various hotels within the city centre. My stay at the Novotel in January 2016 exceeded all my expectations of an 'under £100 per day' hotel. The room provided everything I needed to both unwind at the end of a busy day, or, continue working on my laptop. The food... More

Visited this hotel for a work course and it was lovely inside. The framework of the building is stunning with some original brick work as features. The catering team put on a delicious warm buffet for lunch- great variety and very tasty. Only feedback was the food wasn't as great at the evening meal in the restaurant. Chicken tasted a... More

I stayed here the weekend before Christmas with my partner for two nights. When we finally got to the hotel we were greeted at the reception by a lovely bloke. He explained to us about the spa and wellness centre use, and about having breakfast in the mornings and due to it being my birthday I was given a voucher... More

Have stayed in a few different hotels in Cardiff. The rooms here are a good size,clean but feel a bit 'ikea' which is more than adequate for business trip or value for money trip but wouldn't recommend for a special occasion / luxury experience. There is a good swimming pool / gym facilities. Breakfast was buffet with good selection of... More
