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

I have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions for work. I would not want to stay anywhere else. The staff are always friendly and polite and remember you which is lovely. The facilities at the hotel are fantastic, the pool, steam room, sauna and Jacuzzi are a must, it has a totally relaxed feel with the low... More

We have stayed here 4 times now and every time has been a pleasure. We like the fact that it's slightly out of town, which makes it quieter. Facilities are excellent although we often don't have time to enjoy them. We now always choose an executive room in the older part of the hotel. They are spacious and comfortable. The... More

Stayed two nights. Nice Hotel. I liked the feel of the place. Stayed later at the Novotel in London, which sported the same interior. The surroundings are not much to write home about. It's a 10 minute walk into town, bars and shopping. Seemed a bit longer doing it in the rain or while schlepping the luggage to/from train station.... More
