Rooms, social areas, bar and restaurant are all up to Novotel's good standard but the hotel is not as "centre" as the title suggests. As a Novotel fang, I would use my other loyalty card and stay at the Holiday Inn Cardiff Centre because it.... well, is.... Centre, with easy quick access to bars and restaurants.
It does have the benefit of a pool, gym and sauna, with Holiday Inn Centre doesn't, so that may make a difference.
I thought that having to pay £9 a night for the car park rubbed in the inconvenience of not being able to walk to amenities in minutes. The Bay area is quite accessible, however, and that offers visual interest and various eateries.
A wine list starting at £19 seems cheeky, though the bottom-list wine at that price was good. It would have been better at £15, and still accompanied the very good goats cheese souffle starter.
Staff all courteous and efficient.
