Good accommodation in the heart of Old York

18/10/2018 kennethg578, Sydney, Australia

Across the road from York Minster, at the entrance to the Shambles and a 10 minute walk to the main line station, it couldn’t be better placed. The rooms are pleasant and well appointed. The staff wer... more

Dear Kennethg578, Thank you for your very nice review, i trust your stay in the UK is as good and wish you a safe flight home. May be we may see you again wen next in the UK, - you could spend 2 weeks in York and the area and still not see everything we have to offer. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

A lovely stay with a view of the Minster!

17/10/2018 Canadamanda, Owen Sound, Canada

I had an upstairs room (note; there was no elevator, but luckily I had a small carry-on type case) and literally looked out onto the Minster, which was a treat. When I arrived, I was given a note for... more

Dear Canadamanda, Thank you for your lovely review, assume you are from Canada and called Amanda?Glad you enjoyed your 1 night stay with us ( a long way to travel for just 1 night).

Fabulous location

17/10/2018 Stephanie s, cincinnati, ohio

I’ve had the pleasure of staying in York a number of times. However, my friend and I wished to stay inside the city walls this visit. Upon arrival, the staff was not only extremely helpful, but very... more


Uncontrollably hot room, and overpriced

15/10/2018 JohnWoodford, Stockport, UK

On arrival, we found a dehumidifier going full tilt in our room, with the hose feeding out of the open window. We wondered if there had been a smoker there; but we weren't bothered as there was no sme... more

Dear JohnWoodford, Thank you for your recent review though I am obviously sad to read its content. I cannot find any reservation under your name to explore when you stayed, which room etc so i can investigate your comments. If you do read my response please do not hesitate to contact me directly simon.murphy@deancourt-york.co.uk so we can discuss your review and stay in some detail. However I am delighted that you found my staff to be friendly and you loved the Minster bells (would you believe some guests dont), everyone has a different expectation of a hotel stay, a restaurant meal, travel, shopping, what is value for money to one person is too expensive to another- suppose thats what makes life interesting.Please note we are a fully non smoking hotel. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

Lovely hotel ideally situated but can be noisy

13/10/2018 SurreyGirl21,

Spent a couple of nights here on a recommendation from a friend. It's very central (literally opposite York Minster) as we were attending a service at York Minster it was ideal. We had a view of The... more

Dear SurreyGirl21, Thank you for your very nice review and your nice feedback about room 61, which has one of the best views of York Minster) glad you loved our new duck- not show what colour you had as they all have different names after several of the staff in the hotel(check out our hotel website for all the names and colours of ducks) - mine is the blue one !! Sadly the down side of having a hotel in the city centre is that some guests can hear street noise, and the majority actually dont, all our rooms have secondary double glazing- I suppose its what your use too on a daily basis. I am pleased that overall you thought the hotel to be good and we look forward to your next visit. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager
