Lovely Break

13/08/2018 Liz691952, Newcastle-under-lyme, United Kingdom

Visited with my husband in July and enjoyed the very warm weather in York and the very warm hospitality of the Dean Court hotel and its staff. As my husband is partially disabled and used a walker to ... more

Dear Liz691952, Thank you for your lovely review, remember you both well, I am so pleased that overall you loved our new fully accessible bedroom with a full wet room. Yes we are fortunate that these three new rooms were in fact built from the "added on" to the existing building, our second restaurant called The Court, which allowed us to exploit the air conditioning system that had been previously installed. The TV had a faulty aerial connection - which was sorted the day you left-(sorry) and the "NEW" heated towel rail has been replaced with another one!! - Oh the teething issues of new builds! Lets hope we see you both again very soon? Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

12/08/2018 Carlaconsort,

My wife had the rash audacity to request a change of room, and so we were awarded with Room 10 on the first floor rather than the top floor tiny room we suspected we had been assigned. It was a bijou ... more

Dear Carlaconsort, Thank you for your 5 star review, "if you dont ask you dont get", sadly no air con - you are correct , we are not allowed as we are a grade 2 listed building.Glad you liked your room- one of our small cosy doubles, and you found our food to be superb, served by very helpful and welcoming staff. To be fair and transparent we have photos of all our room types on our web site, not just our newly refurbished large suites with the most amazing views! Thank you for the recommendation and we all look forward to that return visit. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

Super friendly, great location

Dear NMMJ, Thank you for your lovely review, our rooms at the rear of the hotel are certainly the quieter and do offer views of the neighbours rear gardens, the Minster is just outside the front door! Yes sadly no air con- a grade 2 listed building no-no! We have several type of bedroom standards, your was one of our small cosy doubles- (which by definition are our smaller rooms bit still have all the same amenities of all our other 39 rooms) Hope that return visit is not too far away? Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

Amazing stay in great location

Dear Emma B, Thank you for your very nice review, your recommendation is greatly received. We believe the car parking to be very good value for money, as when your car arrives we unload the luggage, valet park it-in our off site secure car park, return the car within 10 minutes of your request- re load the luggage- all hassle free, you could park the car for a 1 night stay for 24 hours- a council car park near by doesn't offer that level of service and costs around £3 per hour! - we charge £18.50 ! glad you liked the view of the iconic York Minster- you cant get much closer! Hope to see you again soon? Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

Amazing stay

Can’t recommend enough, perfect from the first moment we walked in, we were greeted by a girl called Becky (I think) on reception who couldn’t be more helpful. It was our first time staying at this ho... more

Dear TheSkinExpert, Thank you for your amazing review, I am so pleased that you loved all aspects of your stay. Both Becky and Cristian will be thrilled to see their names written in this review in such a positive way. Thank you for your great recommendation and we look forward to your next visit even if its next year for your 11th wedding anniversary, (can even promise something "steel" ) !
