Dear MarcusC, Thank you for your nice review following your 2 night stay, sadly as I have posted on other reviews we are "not allowed" to fit air conditioning to this Grade 2 listed building- ( i wish i could). Glad you liked dinner and apologises if breakfast seemed a bit disorganised- (usually a very well run department), the team discuss all reviews so will see where we went wrong on this occasion. Thank you for your recommendation and we look forward to that next return visit. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

Owner Response
DeanCourt, General Manager at Dean Court Hotel, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Dear johnicester, Thank you for your review following your visit at the weekend. Sadly the main hotel lift was not working when you stayed, regrettably one of those things, and I am sorry if that caused you an inconvenience, in the last two weeks the same lift had a full service and passed an insurance inspection. For reference and any future guests who may read this review and my reply- we do not have air conditioning installed in the bedrooms- ( please see other reviews below). The building is old- some 153 years old, as it was built in 1865! We have some small rooms and some very large rooms- all 40 bedrooms are different, but also in size, colour scheme and shape, and we do have USB adaptors in the hotel. The Minster (nest door to the hotel) bells actually chime on the hour from 8am until 10pm daily, and peel on a Sunday morning- calling you to Church! We will keep trying and hope one day we may see you again. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager
