3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Not a four star hotel. It's a good three star. Rooms have been neglected and to keep it a four star hotel it needs to keep updating its rooms to remain so. I was in an executive room but it lacked the basic amenities it advertised. I had a room without a safe and the robes and slippers were also... More

Stayed here with our family of 4, rooms good value with a double bed, and twin sofa bed, ideal for us. City Centre a short walk away. Breakfast was the best i've had at a Novotel. Hotel was very clean, staff great and the swimming pool was an added bonus! Will stay again.

Love York. And the novotel never disappoints. For me it's one of the best York has to offer . It's a large modern hotel with friendly staff. It has a indoor pool so you can take the kids when weather is not to good And finish of with a burger from the restaurant (well recommended ). The rooms are a... More

Overall we had a comfortable stay. Nice large, modern lobby-bar-reception area. Staff were efficient although we asked for an early check-in, it never happened. Rooms were bright, clean and functional. Breakfast food quality was good however, one problem we had was after queuing up for 10 minutes, not bad really as the hotel was busy, we got a table, ordered... More

Stayed here in mid August and found the hotel to be very clean and tidy. The front of house were very friendly. The hotel has a good location and takes about 10 minutes to walk to the town centre. Overall a fantastic stay in a nice hotel in a great city.

Not a good start and it didn't get any better. We arrived at 1.40pm and when I booked I was informed our room would be available at 2pm. Our room was not ready and so we were unable to check in. Nothing was suggested as to what we do whilst we waited for our rooms. We asked about the restaurant... More

I booked the hotel for the 2 of us in Novotel hoping for a luxury room (it is called a superior queen after all!) rather than a standard Premier Inn. What a disappointment that was. Drab room, filthy carpets with nail clippings under the bed, sheets not ironed, torn net curtains and a third world toilet (I've been to portaloos... More

This place had been recommended by a relative and I'm so pleased we listened. It's tucked away by the river a short walk away from the city centre - easy to drive to but as it's tucked away you have to keep an eye out for the turning on the one way loop! Car park is £11 per night and... More
