Joint Birthday / Valentines Trip!

I visited York when I was younger and my partner hadn't been for quite some time either. We both had vague memories that York was a beautiful city so decided to book a one night stay for my 22nd birth... more

Dear ChloRebecca Thank you for reviewing your recent visit to the Dean Court Hotel, I am so pleased to hear that you both had such a nice time, after speaking with you on checkout I know it is such a rare treat to get time away from the kids for just the two of you and for you to tie this in with your birthdays and valentines day must have made this extra special, I am just happy to hear that our hotel and the fantastic staff we have played a part in making this time memorable. Frank who you mentioned so kindly is an absolute gem, he is the definition of great customer service and your kind words will be relayed to him. Also pleasing to read is how impressed you were on arrival at the hotel, Our valet service is in place to take away the hassles and evidently we achieved this and to hear your description of the best thing you have ever experienced at a hotel is just perfect for a manager to read. The only slight and very minor setback was not knowing that breakfast wasn't included, I can see you booked through a third party and normally they are pretty transparent with whether the room is booked as room only or bed and breakfast but I will say what I have said many times before when responding to guests, always book direct with the hotel you are staying with, you get to speak with the people who know the hotel, if the rate is incorrectly cheaper on another website the hotel will always match it, just ensure it is a like for like comparison. I am sure as a parent myself this break was well deserved for you two and it will probably be a while until the next one so I hope your memory of the Dean Court lasts for a long time and when that next opportunity does come we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel. Kind regards Steve Bailey Deputy General Manager
