“Excellent location”
Reviewed 24 July 2009

Stayed here for 2 nights with my wife and 2 kids. Reception and staff in general were extremely helpful and allowed us to check in early. Also offered us a deal on the buffett breakfast which was excellent! Kids loved the swimming pool and the location was fantastic - 2 minute walk to the York City museum which is not to be missed!!! My son also enjoyed playing with the wii!

Will definately stay here again!

Stayed two nights at York Novotel and it was superb. Enjoyed it even more than the Royal York (which was nice but I left it feeling like I had been mugged). Great location, super staff, lovely swimming pool, spotlessly clean and comfortable room. Could not ask for better. We'll be back.

We make a point of using the sister hotels in France and found the French influence very much apparent in this hotel. Our large room at the rear overlooked the Foss lock and was freshly decorated and spotless. Fabulously comfortable king-size bed. Breakfast was included and the choice was excellent, from full English to croissants etc. Location is great. You can get into York centre with a short 5/10 minute walk from the rear of the hotel or cross over the bridge to the River Ouse and walk in by the river, very pleasant. We did use the pool which although very small, is fine just for a bit of exercise if you fancy it but probably would not satisfy a strong swimmer. The kids will love it though. We visit York 2/3 times a year to see family and have previously stayed in guest houses but would not do so again after having enjoyed Novotel so much.

The staff where helpful and courteous.
The rooms where large, clean and comfortable.
In room TV Internet was the only thing that did not measure up. It was slooooowwwww. However the internet / computer in the lobby was available for a reasonable price .It was fast and reliable.

Overall a great place to stay!

just stayed for 1 night, and because I got the room for a good rate by prepaying I should shouldn't really complain but the rooms are a bit tired. the entrance is impressive, very strict on check in time - we arrived an hour early and they didn't even check if our room was ready we had to wait. the pool is disappointing. there are 2 cubicles to change in, no lockers, toilets, driers. just the 2 cubicles in the pool area and you just leave your belongings at the side ? no sauna / steam room. location was good, just a 5/10 minute walk from the centre. based on price would go back again - maybe the website makes it look a bit more glamorous than it is. (had just stayed in a travel lodge and their room was better) Parking was extra

Stayed for two nights. Liked the location - very convenient for getting into the town but set off the main road helping to keep traffic noise down. Hotel is modern and more of a 3.5 star than 3 star. Room was a good size, clean with fresh decor and had all the facilities needed and expected with a Novotel, including a great powerful shower. Only small complaint about the room was that it was a bit stuffy and as I like complete quiet at night I had to have the window shut overnight to block out any otherwise inevitable city road noise. The main thing I didn't like about the hotel was the swimming pool facilitiies or more precisely lack of. I have stayed in a Novotel before so had a fair idea what to expect (no private showers or toilets within the changing rooms) but this Novotel pool doesn't even have changing rooms! Just a couple of cubicles directly at the poolside with no showers at all, no toilets and no lockers. It basically is just a room with a swimming pool in it. I think they could do slightly better at relatively low cost considering the standard the hotel generally reaches elsewhere. On the whole, I enjoyed my stay and would stay again, especially if I could get a good rate again. The weaknesses, whilst annoying/inconvenient, can be worked around.

This hotel was built in 1986, and it is showing its age. Great weekend however ! Rooms need aircon & redecoration. No extractor fan in bathroom. Staff are great and could not do enough. An extension is planned but its not clear if there will be renovations of existing rooms. Great position for York centre & for touring Yorkshire as a whole as its just off a main road. Car park is a bonus for a city Hotel. For comparison Premier Inn is cheaper & has Aircon, is near centre & is on main road..
