Dear David C Thank you for reviewing your recent stay at the Dean Court Hotel and awarding us a rating of five stars. It is regrettable that we cannot have air conditioning in the rooms for the summer months but hopefully the fans we provide will help cooling down the room. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your various meals throughout your stay and found the staff to be extremely friendly. We hope to welcome you back to the hotel in the future.
