Dear Sheila M Thank you for choosing the Dean court hotel for the birthday celebrations and Thank you for sharing your review with the tripadvisor community. We are pleased that you had an enjoyable stay and that the food and the staff were of a high standard. Our car parking is competitive with other nearby facilities but offers a few added bonuses that most don't. Ours is a secure car park offering piece of mind and guests are not restricted to moving their cars upon checkout as with so many other hotel car parks and not governed by time restrictions that a pay and display car park will have. We also valet park the cars creating one less hassle for our guests. If you are thinking about staying with us again ring the Dean Court Hotel directly on 01904 625082 to receive a discount on the advertised car parking price of all other booking websites, please note this does include Best Western as well, Only through ringing the hotel directly can you receive this offer. many thanks once again for your review and we hope to welcome you back again soon. Kind regards Steve Bailey

Dear EasyTravellerDC Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review after your recent visit. I do apologise that the bells from the Minster were chaotic and continuous, there is a practice session which takes place once a week between the times that you have stated and unfortunately out of our control and as you said on most occasions the bells are a welcoming sound but perhaps not so much on practice day. It is great to hear that the staff made a positive impact on your stay, we really do have a great set of friendly people on board and they are constantly delivering a great service with a real positive can do attitude. I hope the positive aspects of your stay would interest you in joining us again if you find yourself back in York, if that is the case then please call the hotel direct to answer any questions that our staff can help you with in preparation for your next visit. Kind regards Steve Bailey
