Reviewed 23 January 2010

We stayed here in January 2010, and had a nice room, which did have problems. The room had a nice bathroom, but had a sepated toilet and sink. There wasn't any storage space, just a draw, 2 shelves, and a short coathanger strip. We definitely got only 3 pillows and 4 cusions shared by 3 people. But it had some nice advantages. The pool was nearly empty, altough it only had 2 small cubicles. And the hotel had a nice bar and a good location for visiting the high street. Altough the problems in the room, the room was very nice and modern. Overall this hotel was fairly good!

Perfectly suited and designed with the family in mind. Hotel facilities are excellent and the proximity to the City and its attractions is perfect.

I stayed here for two nights on business when I was visiting the university. I found the hotel to be in a great location for both the train station and the university. I can’t fault anything, the room was fine spacious enough for the standard room with a king size bed. There are also tea and coffee making facilities. The Elements bar and restaurant serves excellent food. Also breakfast is served in the restaurant and I cannot fault the choice of food on offer and the service from the staff. Overall an excellent hotel in a good location and full credit to all the staff for a welcoming friendly service!

Stayed for three night new year break with my wife and our friends but thought we'd made a mistake when we first arrived. Screaming kids running around the foyer (someone's bright idea to put X-Box and Wii consoles in reception) and general unkempt mayhem.
Booked a superior room (all rooms are same size, just different fittings) and paid £310 for 3 nights which wasn't bad value for new year's eve. Room was clean and modern but nothing special. Big problem was heating didn't work. So far, so bad, but it all changed after a call to reception. The manager (Matthew) came immediately and apologised, tried to resolve the problem and when he couldn't he instantly found us another room with heat. Excellent prompt response and this set the tone for our stay.
While the hotel may not be the most luxurious, rooms are very clean and the level of service was better than any five star we have stayed at. Breakfast was included in the price and what a breakfast! Fresh, good quality food and superb friendly service in a stylish restaurant. Brilliant!
Every member of staff was polite and helpful and even though the hotel was very busy they made sure each guest was catered for. Swimming pool is on the small size, but choose your moments and you can have it all to yourselves. Hotel is about 500 yards from city walls and we would highly recommend it to anyone considering a stay in York.
In town, we recommend Punch Bowl pub for drinks and top pies (we're from Wigan) and Lucia's Italian restaurant for great food and service. In fact, York itself was one of the friendliest places we've ever been to. Good value and great service all round. Climb up the Minster, then when you've recovered, go for steak pie n chips at the Punch Bowl! Have to say, though, we went on the Ghost Walk and for five quid we were more bored stiff than scared stiff. Still, York's a lovely city and you'd not be disappointed if you stayed at the Novotel.

Ideal location to walk into the city, but room was very basic. Carpet stained, and sofa could do with skipping. A bit of TLC needed. Bathroom was great, bedroom was a let down given the impression provided at reception (the receptionist said we had been upgraded!!!). Breakfast was good, and staff helpful. Bar prices expensive though so we were one drink drinkers!
