Conveniently located for visiting York city attractions, although a longish walk from the rail station. A short taxi ride proved a more sensible option and costs only a few pounds. Hotel public areas need updating, but otherwise up to usual Novotel standards. Room a good size and well equipped - comfortable bed, tea/coffee making facilities, but carpeting needs brightening up.... More

We checked in & were pleasantly pleased with reception/bar/lobby area, sadly first impressions were lost when we entered our 'executive' room. Terrible decor, dirty carpet & blankets on the beds for the kids that looked like they were for a dog. Still at a loss as to what part was 'executive'. We paid a lot of money for a room... More

This hotel advertises itself as being '4 star' but unfortunately it is nowhere near the mark. 3 star at best. As other reviewers have commented, the smell from the drains is very unpleasant and is hard to ignore. The hotel is a bit tired looking and in need of a facelift (see photo). £11 per day for the car park... More
