“nothing wrong”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2012

this is an average hotel it does everything OK but does nothing great. breakfast was good, ensuite good, bed good. can comment on swimming pool (being renovated at the time) nor restaurant as I never ate there
what I will say is that this hotel is NOT in or close to the city centre nor the station. walking 20 minutes each way gets annoying as you can't "pop in" when you're out and about

Room Tip: use the riverside walk into town. much better than crossing highways

Stayed for 3 nights in the week on a room only rate. Friendly receptionist on check-in and check-out. Phonecall to check that everything was ok with the room was a nice touch. The important things in the room were clean i.e. the bed, bathroom and floors, there was just a lack of attention to detail elsewhere, the desk and stand the tv was on were covered in dust and the shower only ran warm, black gaffer tape to cover up crack on white light in the bathroom. We used the pool which was smaller than it looks on the website but we had it to ourselves the majority of the time so was fine. Great location just under ten minutes walk into town, nice walk by the river into york. Would recommend for a short city break.

This is by far the best hotel we have had the pleasure to stay at! All of the staff we met, were a credit to the company and deserve to be told.
A special mention from myself must go to Gregory the French barman, he is a 'Cracking fella!' He was teaching me to speak English in a French accent. Apparently, the English ladies like it!
All joking aside, well worth a visit and I will certainly stay there again and will most definitely be recommending this hotel to anyone I know who wishes to visit York.

Room Tip: Book early!

Having stayed at this hotel before we decided to return. We stayed for the new year and what a great time we had.
All staff were friendly and efficient.
Room was clean and the bed was lovely and cosey, also the shower area was excellent.
Good choices for breakfast and also evening meal was good too.
Brilliant location,just nice for walks by the river.

We look forward to visiting again soon.

Stayed here when extending a recent business trip to York.

The room was a good size, with some good amenities including mini bar, safe, iron and ironing board. It also had a door leading to the entrance which is ingenious as helps block out some of those hotel noises on corridors.

Bathroom clean and with a separate loo. Downside was the bed. I think classed a queen it's not as big as a King and it wasn't that comfortable. Woke up with back ache both mornings.

It is relatively conveniently located close to city. if you're looking for something more quaint then maybe one of the B&Bs/hotels I walked past on Tadcaster road would be better. This is a more modern building but has everything you need there including restaurant, bar, pool..

This hotel was a last minute booking after deciding to stop over in York. Super hotel, staff friendly & helpful, Room was lovely, warm and clean, gorgeous big comfy bed (which we didnt want to get out of the next morning). Shower spacious (would of liked a non slip mat in there) We didnt eat at the hotel but I'm sure the food would of been tasty. Novotel is not too far a walk from the center of York and a pleasant walk and is'nt full of rowdy drinkers like some of the central hotels I had previously stayed at. I certainly will be using this hotel in the near future with friends & family.
