Dear rathb0nes, Thank you for your lovely email which gives me a great sense of pride, as your right we do have a fantastic location, however the hotel has been here for well over a hundred years (before my time). I cannot take any credit for the location, but as a team we can make sure that all aspects of your hotel stay are as equally impressive and on this review we have achieved that objective. Thank you for your recommendation and we all hope we see you again very soon. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager

Dear Scarlettwoman001, Thank you for your very nice review, i am pleased that valet parking worked well for you and Elliott does like too see his name in a review (well in a positive way any way), that you liked our food and thought it to be of good value. The duvets are polyester but we also have a range of "other types",on request, allergy's are becoming more and more prevalent which we need to be mindful off. All feedback is collated from the various review sites and discussed at a weekly meeting to make sure we are offering the best we can, your feedback re the room will added and discussed. Lets hope we see you again when re visiting our great City and of course staying at the best located hotel in York- the DCH. Kind regards Simon Murphy General Manager
