In between Cardiff bay and the city centre, and walking distance to Cardiff Central station and the castle, Novotel Cardiff Centre is in an ideal spot for visitors to Wales’s capital city.

The castle and stadium are both within a 17-minute walk, and it’s a 20-minute walk to the Doctor Who Experience. For those driving, there is convenient parking on site (costing £9 per day), and Wi-Fi is free throughout. There’s also an indoor pool, gym, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna for guests to use. Helpfully, there is also a changing area and lockers.

The bedrooms were recently refurbished and are a good size, with blackout curtains, air conditioning, tea- and coffee-making facilities, and a sofa bed. Upgrade to a Superior Room to include a Nespresso coffee machine, Bose iPod docking station, and bathrobe and slippers. There’s a play area downstairs with an Xbox for children to use.

In the morning, a buffet breakfast is served where you can expect eggs, bacon, local sausages, pancakes, cereal, fruit, and yoghurt. Later in the day, there’s classic British fare on offer such as chicken and wild mushroom pie, steak and the Novotel house burger with fries.
