Our family of five stayed here for a weekend in February, and had a brilliant time. The only slight problem occurred at the time of booking, because even though our third child was only a year old and we had a travel cot for her, the online system wouldn't let us book just one room.

Nice hotel relatively close to city centre. It's a 10 minutes’ walk through a new pedestrian bridge in the other side of the hotel. The harbor area is not too far. Very nice personnel on reception and good breakfast.

I booked at the Novatel for four nights in the Cardiff area and it did not disappoint.

I ate in the bar with a... More

Modern clean hotel. Parking was a bonus. Excellent friendly customer service throughout. We had 3 young children in our group and found the hotel child friendly. Lovely pool. Good position for city centre and Cardiff Bay. The breakfast was excellent.
