Very happy
Lovely hotel, great location in the city centre, easy to access all shops and restaurant. Pool is lovely, plenty of parking and a nice pub attached. Only downside was appalling pillows in the room.

Faultless Just Faultless
We as a family used this hotel for our New Years Eve in Cardiff stay over and it turned out to be the best choice we made. The service from day one was nothing less than brilliant. Our concerns and requests were addressed with no drama. Our room proved ample for the 4 of use (the 2 young girls sharing the sofa bed). The cleanliness was as expected and the near by facilities (walking distance) were great for New Years Eve. In the morning before checking out we used the pool and spa area which was great, the pool was warm, spacious enough and the steam room was very nice. The parking fee for the stay could be cheaper but parking costs these days are overpriced everywhere to be honest. This is the second time I have stayed in this Novotel and the first time for my family and we all would definitely return and recommend to other without hesitation.
