My husband and I stayed at the Novotel in July as my sister had her wedding reception here. We stayed in an executive room which was extremely spacious and had all of the facilities that we would expect (and more!). The bed was very large and comfortable and the bathroom was very tastefully decorated with an excellent shower. The Bose... More

Top service quality, good size bedroom and very clean, comfortable aircon for hot summer days, nice breakfast buffet, better than Premier Inn mattress (sorry Premier Inn), reasonable walking distance to both Cardiff Bay and city centre, really quiet although next to a main road… The only downside is the parking charge, not quite right to charge your guests around a...

The hotel was very good, bright, light and airy. the room was of a typical Novotel standard and, most importantly we asked for a quiet room and got one.
