Very nice hotel. Old warehouse type building sympathetically transformed into a modern hotel. It is a five to ten minute walk away from the centre and restaurants which is its only downside. Decent sized car park, good bar and breakfast room. Very much recommend this hotel.

A surprisingly enjoyable stay, the staff were polite and pleasant, the room was spacious and everything worked. The only issue was the parking, which is on a first come, first served basis. However I would stay there again.

Great location with a short walk to the city centre and the Principality Stadium. Easy access, helpful friendly check in and well equipped, clean, and spacious room. A number of major events on in the city so no deals on the rooms.

Parking paid for there and then, as mentioned £12.00 but you can come and go as you please and its secure with a fence around and CCTV coverage. A pair...

I'm not going to say our stay was awful it wasn't the beds were reasonably clean and presentable and breakfast was good. The bad parts were the unheated pool was so cold to a point where we decided not to swim in it with our infant daughter and take her in a warm jacuzzi instead. It's November Novotel what are...
