Dear Mark L Thank you for leaving a review after visiting our hotel recently, I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed what we had to offer. Our hotel, in fact most hotels are great places to come and have a relaxing drink as a non-resident as an alternative to familiar chains and other outlets but this is something that is not taken up by a lot of people. I am pleased that you did visit and that you plan to again in the future where a warm welcome and relaxing atmosphere awaits you once again. Kind regards Steve Bailey Deputy General Manager

Dear Mikalsko, Thank you for your very nice hotel review, I am pleased that you liked your stay with us and would stay here again and thanks for the recommendation.

DeanCourt, Manager at Dean Court Hotel, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Graeme D Thank you for recent review and how great it is to hear you had such an enjoyable stay with us. Our first class food and service are just some of the reasons why our guests are able to relax in our comfortable surroundings. Some of our guests do like to park their own vehicles which we are more than happy for them to do it just means that we have to escort them to the car park as it is securely locked and with your particular vehicle being a motorcycle it was certainly better for you to park it as not all of us have completed the relevant training. We hope to see you again in the future for another enjoyable stay. Kind regards Steve Bailey Deputy General Manager
