Great location, but not 4 star

08/12/2018 740lynng, Burnley, United Kingdom

We stayed for 4 nights, bed and breakfast in a "cosy double". The room was small but comfortable, with great views of York Minster. The hotel was spotless and the staff friendly. However, we would not... more


Lovely hotel and lovely staff

This hotel is luxurious and has a lovely feel about it. The location is great and the views we had were stunning. The room was a little small and considering it was very expensive we did expect a bit ... more

Dear Zoejoatway78, Thank you for your lovely review. I am so pleased that your overall experience of the hotel was good, sorry you found the hotel to be expensive, looks like you stayed last Saturday night- one of the most popular dates in the year for York for accommodation, - York Xmas Market. For other potential visitors to the hotel the Minster bells only ring on a Sunday morning from 9 am, what could be nicer though walking up to those magnificent bells from one of Europe's most stunning Cathedral, they also ring on the hour too (but not through the night or early in the morning, and its bell practice on a Tuesday night. Lets hope we see you again for another visit to our great city and of course the DCH. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

Fantastic Stay

Dear Lorna B, Thank you for such a wonderful review, it looks like we ticked all the boxes for your stay and met all your expectations, of course having the Minster next door to us does help. I am so pleased that you enjoyed our festive menu and our breakfasts. Once again congratulations on your Silver wedding anniversary and lets hope we see you again very soon for that second visit to York, there is so much to see and do- especially staying at the DCH as we are only minutes away for all the attractions of York. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

Dear DonnaStoke_on_Trent,(wonder where you are from) ! Thank you for such a glowing review, I am so pleased that you had a lovely stay in the hotel over one of the busiest weekends the City has had, there was certainly plenty going on. Valet parking is taken up by the majority of our guests as its good value, your car is safe and secure and not in a public- expensive council car park, and parking around the Minster is a bit of a challenge. I am blessed with great staff and wholeheartedly agree they are a real asset and who are all here to make your stay the best we can. We all look forward to welcoming you back soon. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager
