I stayed at Novotel York Centre for 3 nights immediately before the November lockdown. I couldn't have wished for a more pleasant stay. The hotel is conveniently located, being only a short drive into York from the surrounding road network (with its own open air and spacious car park) and a 10 minute walk from the old city centre. The staff were remarkably friendly and helpful throughout my stay. Particular mention should go to the young lady on check in and the young lady serving breakfasts. The room was extremely comfortable and the bathroom very well appointed. Both were faultlessly clean. Food was delicious and generous helpings too. It's quiet there at night, so you get a good night's sleep. Excellent wi-fi as well.

Hotel's Favorite
Great hotel, just a short stroll from the city centre. The rooms are comfortable and a good size. There is a decent swimming pool and a large, family friendly bar/lobby area. What really stands out is the friendly, hard working staff. Great buffet breakfast and lovely pizzas.

All we needed was a worry-free break, and that is exactly what we got. With a one year-old on our hands we have been looking for a night away for a while. The Novotel team made us feel welcome and safe during the whole stay! Easy direct booking, very welcome check-in, and at check-out you just need to leave the keys in a box. Must say that we actually enjoyed some of the new safety measures in place. We had the pool just for the three of us (I think only two rooms are allowed at the same time). Communication with reception or the restaurant is made through WhatsApp! I hope they keep this, it was so easy!!! Dinner in the restaurant was lovely. I would recommend the mushroom soup and the lovely desserts. We stayed in a Junior Suite. These rooms are both romantic and family friendly! Also, you have a TV on the bed side and another in the living room side :) Bathroom is huge, with both shower and bath, and lots of mirrors. Can’t wait to go back.

We had to wait until 4pm to check in, two hours after our check in time. The chap on the desk said that they were ‘very busy’ as though that was an adequate excuse! We were given £10 drinks vouchers while we waited, needless to say the £10 didn’t cover the drinks for a family of 4! We weren’t able to use the pool because we ‘didn’t book a slot’ (Covid) having been told over the phone days before that we didn’t need to. The room wasn’t very clean and smelled of damp. Also very noisy. The communal reception and bar area was impressive but unfortunately didn’t make up for the rest of our experience.

Dear tomhB3985CA, Thank you for your feedback. While we will attempt to have all rooms ready at the time our guests arrive, this is not always possible, hence we offer a "from" check in time. I am very surprised that a staff member would have informed you not to pre-book a swimming pool slot but will be very happy to investigate this and your other complaints should I have some more information. You can contact me on h0949-gm@accor.com to discuss your stay. Kind regards, Kai
