OK location and rooms are adequate. Fairly standard Novotel rooms although the hotel itself is very nice. There is no evening restaurant but rather food in the bar. I was surprised at this as we had booked a Valentines Special with Half Board. From the moment I went to collect my key. I had checked in online but actually checking...

This was a last minute idea to beat the winter blues! Booked online and arrived 2 hours later. We upgraded to an exec room (extra £20) but more room for the kids, bathrobes,slippers and a coffee machine etc. We had a room at the back - I won't think there are any views with this hotel, but the back was...

We have stopped at this hotel several times since we started visiting Cardiff. It can be expensive, but look out for offers. The hotel has a good location if you don't want to stay right in the centre. It is approx 10 minutes walk away. The hotel is nice with a team of friendly staff. It is very clean and...

The hotel was great, but disappointing all at the same time! It looks great, the swimming pool was nice and a good size for a family swim, the xbox and the other games in the foyer are a clever and great bonus. The room was good, clean and well presented and the Queen size bed was lovely and comfy. BUT...

It was a lovely hotel for a business trip. Room was clean and bed was comfy. The swimming pool was nice and relaxing as it was quiet when I was there. I would stay here again as it is near the centre as well and walking distance.

The Novotel Cardiff is a nice place to stay. Spent two nights with our two kids. It was really good for the kids. They have a kids area with an X box and a Surface table and some Legos. The pool was a bit small, or maybe just busy, but good overall. The restaurant was good and the staff were...

Recently stayed on a Saturday night, room was a good size and comfortable. The hotel was close to the city centre and could be easily walked in ten minutes. Only complaint that on our return after being out to a show there was a function in the hotel and as our room, on the third floor, was directly above the...
