We have stayed at the Novotel Cardiff a number of times, but following this final visit we will not be staying here again. It is a beautiful modern hotel, lovely scenery and clean rooms. The food is of a high standard and the pool and sauna are really nice extras. However, given the premium you pay to stay in this... More

This trip had so much promise for my daughter and I, both looking forward to our stay in what looked to be a great hotel and near to all amenities that Cardiff can offer, in particular the Dr Who Experience and the amazing shopping centres. Booking was easy enough on Novotel's own website, and on joining the AccorsHotels 'Le Club'... More

We've stayed in this hotel a number of times and always found the staff and facilities to be perfect for a family stopover. The games console, random toys, pool plus quality kids menu make this the place of choice when in cardiff with the nippers. The rooms are clean and modern.

Stayed for one night in this hotel where my wife and I have stayed before. Room was fine on the third floor. Air conditioned. Breakfast was buffet style with every thing that you may require. Hotel is situated seven or eight minutes from the centre of Cardiff. You are required to pay an additional fee for parking.

I have stayed at Novotel a few times with my boyfriend when attending concerts, rugby or just having a night out in Cardiff. We usually book if we manage to find a good deal as it can be expensive.
