Normally stay at the Hilton when in York but we had a last minute trip and everywhere was fully booked so ended up having to use our Accor Platinum status to squeeze ourselves into the Novotel.
We arrived fairly late but were pleased that the car park still had plenty of spaces - one of the issues with the Hilton is that their carpark is often full.
Greating by reception was pleasant and exceptionally quickly checked in. Our room was a standard room but it was a good size, clean and adequate for our needs. We were given a free drinks voucher but thought it was a little odd that for a double occupancy room that only a single voucher was given - with other hotel chains that do similar they give one voucher per adult in the booking.
Breakfast had a reasonable range of solid quality foods and the trays were kept well stocked.
An unusually pragmatic approach to parking was given in that you could leave the car there for the rest of the day after checking out without any issues or additional charge. With it only being a simple 10 minute walk to the town centre it is a very handy feature.
As it was a very last minute booking the price was excessive for its standards but this comes with the territory and looking at their regular prices for advanced bookings they look good value.
