Long weekend break in Cardiff, wanted a convenient hotel to the centre with pool and sauna. Novotel met the requirements well. Easy to find, with parking, albeit at £9 per day extra, Reception staff helpful and welcoming and the rooms were exactly what we expected in this chain of hotels. A 10 minute walk to Cardiff centre suited us well for meals in the evening.
The pool, fitness centre and sauna were good with all the facilities you would expect. The hotel markets the centre to non residents but it was not overcrowded.
We only took breakfast in the hotel restaurant and it was average with hot and cold buffet; price was £13.95 but if you booked at the Accor Hotels website, it was possible to pre-purchase breakfast for £8.95.More
