Dpadz TripAdvisor review

Everything was perfect to be honest. A minor issue with my wash basin not draining due to a faulty mechanism. Megan at the front desk at reception of the Novotel Cardiff Centre was very helpful. I'd definitely stay again next time I'm in Cardiff.

Well Located, rooms tired

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Well located hotel 10 mins walk from the arena. We paid for an Executive room expecting some level of luxury for the price, but we found a bland room with a tired bathroom, shower cubicle small and mouldy. Lights in the dressing room area did not work and the heating/air con was not working either. Overall, ok, but would not stay again for the price.

location was good but the room service system is the worst as they dont have phone system. We have to go online to contact room service and most of the time it was not answered. Also the extra bed given for my son was broken and we had call midnight to fix it and it took so long to geta response. We had asked to top up the tea station and that was also not done

Had a great overnight stay with very handy adjoining rooms as we were a family of 5. Lovely breakfast, lots of choice. And the pool was really nice too. Short walk to get to the shops and restaurants so a great location. And the staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.
