Comfortable, clean, convenient

Just a short 2-night stay for the switching-on of the Xmas lights, first visit and very impressed. Spacious, comfortable room with all the expected amenities. On the top floor, with a fine view toward... more

Dear formbyfoodie Thank you for taking the time to write a review following on from your recent visit to the Dean Court Hotel. It is fantastic to read that you had an enjoyable stay with us, our rooms as you say are all individual shapes and sizes and I agree that by our rooms being laid out in this way it offers the hotel a certain charm. Our building due to its age presents some challenges and it is difficult to gauge the ideal temperature for each guest but we do have mobile air conditioner units and heaters should our guests need them as well as our fans and our heating in the room and of course the staff are always on hand to help with any guests requests. I hope that your first visit will be one of many and if so we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the future. kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager

Good hotel, even better location.

We have returned from a 1 night stay at Dean Court. This is a really nice hotel and the location is fantastic, right in the centre of York and facing York Minster. It wasn’t without fault though which... more

Dear Scottydog09 Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us and I am pleased to hear for the most part that you had a good stay. I'm unable to match your booking name with with your Tripadvisor name and if you would be so kind as to email me so I can investigate further. steve.bailey@deancourt-york.co.uk I do know that this building can get warm even in winter time and the problem we have is that for one guest the room may not be warm enough and for another the room maybe too hot but this alongside the clicking noise you have reported sounds something similar to which another guest reported and it would help me to know which room this was so I can attend to the issue. We do have portable air conditioning units available which help us cool the rooms in summer time and this would have acted as a quick fix but I would still be curious to find out which room this was as putting an air conditioning unit in there if the heating itself is causing an issue would not be the best long term solution. I am pleased that you found our great location useful and that in general you had a good stay with us for your wife's birthday, I am just sorry for the inconveniences you experienced. We do hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back and if so please be sure to contact us directly at the hotel. Kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager
