I booked this hotel on a whim last minute as my Fiance & I were in need of a rest and I can't tell you how pleased I am that I did! Having read the reviews after I booked I was slightly concerned that having spent £272 for a 2 night b&b stay I'd potentially "wasted" a lot of money but I promise it was worth every penny. We stayed in room 320, which was just what we were after, gogd clean comfortable queen-size bed, lovely clean modern shower room and spacious. All the things you expect in a Novotel were provided and more. There is a parking charge but we found this perfectly reasonable and easy to use. The swimming pool is small but not too small as some have said, my Fiance and I had a little swim on Saturday morning, we had the pool to ourselves and we both managed to have a good few relaxing laps. The breakfast is one of the best buffet breakfasts I have had in a hotel - catered for everyone, I was delighted to see vegetarian sausages both mornings and we had a lovely filling breakfast both mornings - I see that someone mentioned the price of breakfast and suggested Wetherspoons up the road but trust me it's worth the extra few pounds to stay and have your breakfast in the hotel - breakfast is on until 11am which is wonderful if you like a little lie-in on a weekend as we did! The best part of the hotel I have to say is the staff. They are pleasant, efficient and polite at all times. I asked for decaf tea/coffee for our room and was provided with them straight away. If you have any queries on the surrounding area the reception team are more than happy to assist. We did find that we lost the wifi connection at times, however 3G was available and there are plenty of other connection facilities within the hotel. We paid for the £9.99 in-room package, which was worth it as we viewed two movies (Capitain Phillips/Jackass Bad Grandpa) and made use of the on-demand music - again, worth paying for if like us you enjoy a movie in bed! If you are looking for somewhere comfortable, within walking distance of York city centre and extremely helpful staff then you'll not go wrong with here. We will definitely be staying again, certainly if we can get a deal/special offer - so Mr. Manager if you are reading this please feel free to email me with any special weekend deals to lure us back! Thank you to all the staff.
