The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was plentiful. The pool was an added treat.
Attractive hotel in converted old building with good location, good food.
Would have appreciated a hook for a hand towel near to the handbasin. It was not clear that parking was not free when I booked, and although this was not exorbitant (£13 per day) I resented the charge and put me of Novotel. A minor thing spoiled an otherwise excellent stay.
Rooms were very clean bed was comfortable breakfast was excellent good value and choice.
The only complaint was I felt the pillows could have been better not very comfortable compared with the bed.
Love the hotel, great pool and food delicious. Really close to Motorpoint too.
Shower cold, limited hot water for hands as well - normally give full marks but must dock for that .
Nice big rooms.
Location is 15 mins walk from the centre.
Overlooking the historic Bute East Dock, Novotel Cardiff Centre is the ideal hotel for guests looking for style and comfort. Just 10-minutes from Cardiff Central station, the shops and nightlife, it's the perfect spot for exploring the Welsh capital. The historic Cardiff Castle is just a short walk away too! After a long day of sightseeing, let off some steam in the fitness centre. You could enjoy a dip in the indoor heated pool, or maybe you would prefer to relax in the sauna or steam room?
