A great stay if your visiting Cardiff. Located well you can walk into the shopping centre. Beds are very comfortable! Staff at reception are very nice! didnt eat or use the Spa so can't comment there. It's great value for money. One niggle, very noisy in the morning no chance of a lye in people slamming doors etc.

I booked this hotel from reading other reviews and was glad I did. The service is excellent, car parking plentiful, swimming pool not big but lovely and the superior room we stayed in was more than adequate for us, our 9 year old and baby. Breakfast is good too with lots of choice.
The only minor point is that it is a bit far too walk to the bay, maybe in the summer you could but it was a bit too cold for us in feb, but nevertherless it was a small price to pay for such a good hotel and it is quite easy to park in the bay area anyway.
If you are planning to eat out don't bother with the Old Orleans at the Red Dragon Centre, cheap plastic food, was a real disappointment.

My husband and I and our 1 year old son have stayed twice at the Novotel since Jan 2008. He is relocating to Cardiff and the agency put us there for our first visit, and afterwards we requested it for the second one.

This hotel does what a good hotel is supposed to do: it provides great value for money in clean, spacious, quiet rooms, and a decent breakfast buffet with plenty of choices, the service is friendly and helpful, the location is great - situated perfectly between the bay and the city centre, and the room service is even pretty quick. I haven't had a chance to use the pool or the fitness center, but I saw them and they both look good to me.

As long as I need to stay in a hotel in Cardiff, I would stay here.

Fantastic hotel, booked through a laterooms offer which included breakfast. Leisure facilities nice and clean. Front desk very helpful, recommended a local restaurant and even booked it for us.

Breakfast had a very large selection and staff were efficient and polite.

Rooms decent size and clean.

fantastic location, easy walking distance to the bay and cardiff city centre.
