DeanCourt, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Dean Court Hotel, responded to this review
Dear Tina C Thank you for writing a review after your recent visit to the Dean Court Hotel, It does read in a similar context as the previous comment and others before which is to say that what the hotel has to offer ticks all the boxes but the noise which can be heard outside of the hotel can impact on a good nights sleep, the past couple of weekends in particular seem to have impacted our guests more than usual, The Ebor racing festival has been on recently which does bring in additional people but I shall use these recent reviews to highlight our concerns when we next have our neighbourhood meeting. Upon your next visit please contact the hotel directly to discuss room options and indeed to find out if there are any events taking place around the city. Kind regards Steve Bailey Deputy General Manager

DeanCourt, Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS Dean Court Hotel, responded to this review
Dear kitbag58 Thank you for reviewing your recent visit to our hotel. I am pleased to hear that the friendliness and efficiency of our staff was welcomed and the quality of our breakfast was again to your liking. As you have stated our location is within walking distance of some of the great places that York has to offer and there are some great views to be had from some of our bedrooms and our public areas, regrettably this can come with a downside and on some weekends there can be some external noise. We do have some rooms toward the rear of the hotel that in all honesty do not offer the same views that the front facing rooms offer but would be quieter than these front facing rooms when there is some noise from outside. I do hope you would consider using us again and if so please contact the hotel to speak with one of our team directly. Kind regards Steve Bailey Deputy General Manager
