Fantastic hotel in a beautiful city

Dear Janet D, Thank you for your lovely review following your stay in our "fantastic" hotel. I am so pleased that you found all my team to be always smiling, and extremely helpful. We do not advertise air conditioning as we do not have a permanent system, we do have several portable units, we would love air conditioning but due to our Grade 2 listed building status and in a conservation area, - not a chance that the local planners would allow it- we have tried many times. I trust you had a enjoyable visit to the rest of the UK and hope one day that you may return to the hotel when once again visiting our beautiful city. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

Great location, brilliant staff

Dear Beth B, Thank you for such a wonderful review, I am so glad that you thought your room lovely, and you found my staff to be "brilliant" (i do) - must come from their great leader !!! We do have the most fantastic location with York Minster as our next door neighbour, and all of York's other attractions, minutes from our front door. Lets hope we see you again soon when revising our great City. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

Just falls short

Owner Response
DeanCourt, Manager at Dean Court Hotel, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Dear marcsum Thank you for writing a review after your recent stay, I am sorry to hear on this occasion we fell short of your expectations. There is a parking charge for our hotel as with most city centre hotels in York and other cities although I would doubt that any others offer the value that we do, our guests can bring their car long before check in and leave it with us long after check out at no extra cost and many of our guests appreciate the added value and convenience this brings although if you are unaware of the charges beforehand then I can see that this would be a surprise. I was able to identify the two rooms in which you booked with us and can see that as you rightly said one room was bigger than the other and yet you paid the same price for both rooms, the room types in which were booked (cosy double) were the smaller of the two rooms but we gave a free of charge upgrade on one of them due to availability I am only sorry we could not do this for both rooms. There can be external noise with some of our front facing rooms again due to the location and I am sorry if this disturbed you. The incorrect billing of two cars that were charged rather than just one. I have spoken with the staff and can find no reason as to why this was, it was an error on our part and one I sincerely apologise for. Your advice on checking bills is sound advice and something I would recommend in all establishments as human error can occur from time to time. Despite some negative issues I am pleased to hear you mention the staff in such high regard and I do hope that we have the opportunity to turn your 3 star rating into a five star review in the future. Kind regards Steve Bailey Deputy General Manager
