Second time staying at this hotel. The reasons are pretty simple. Location, close to the city centre and a 20 minute or walk to the Bay. Hotel facilities include a decent swimming pool, a hot tub, a steam room and a sauna. The children were really looking forward to staying here just because of this. Parking the car in the... More

We stayed at the hotel for two nights and was very impressed with the customer service throughout our stay. Reception staff were very helpful, check in and check out very prompt and room was clean, comfortable and contempory. Breakfast was amazing and the building itself was fantastic - stylish.

A cracking hotel in a great location only a five minute walk from the town. The only downside to this is we had a same room with a double bed and a sofa bed and not a twin as booked. The gym and pool are very clean and nice. If I come back to Cardiff I would stay again, maybe... More

Novotel has the same standard worldwide. Great food, lovely buffet breakfast, good dinner at the restaurant. Swimming pool and gym are top notch. Nice comfy king-sized bed and good facilities. Close to city attractions but not in the heart of the city and Cardiff castle Recommended for families or couples looking for cleanliness and comfort.

I stay here regularly - clean, excellent facilities, lovely staff and most of all - consistent. The team should be congratulated on the high standards they deliver and maintain. The location is in the middle of town and the bay...both walkable on a nice day. The pool is lovely too - with decent changing rooms. The breakfast is good and... More

Having spent many weekends in Cardiff this was the first time my daughter (age 21) and I stayed at this hotel. The lady at check in was pleasant enough and we were able to check in early. The room was lovely and spotlessly clean. My bed was very comfortable and my daughter said hers was too. Loved the swimming pool... More

Very comfortable well appointed rooms. Good location and obliging and friendly staff. We stayed for the weekend and had a lovely time in Cardiff. Breakfasts were wholesome and various food options including pancakes and maple syrup! To top it off there is a well appointed fitness centre. I would recommend this hotel unreservedly. I have never given anywhere 5 stars... More

Stayed at this hotel on the weekend with some friends and family following a wedding. Hotel is slightly outside the main city centre and can suffer from the terrible traffic & one way system in Cardiff. Once you're there, the hotel reception 'faces' away from the road so parking is towards the back next to the hotel. Reasonable number of... More
