This hotel is a scam, in google you see pictures of beautiful rooms but in reality the rooms are in a really poor state. The rooms apart from being really old and poorly maintained have couches which ... more

Steve B, Manager at Dean Court Hotel, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Dear nataliadV9377TL It is a shame that you chose to write a review on here a few hours after arriving as your inaccurate and unfair review is misleading. Upon your arrival it was somewhat strange for you to tip one on the porters and state that this was for all the trouble you were going to cause, ironically those words that you said were not misleading. You had booked 3 family rooms all of which have photos on our website, they are not hidden and can be seen quite clearly so you know what to expect, I must also add that the room you were allocated is often requested by our regulars although I must admit that the sofa's were due to be changed and subsequently I have ordered two replacements. Upon your conversation with me, I was unable to change you rooms straight away as we were full and everybody had checked in so I arranged for you the following night to have an alternative deluxe room as a free upgrade all of our deluxe rooms have been refurbished and I felt this was more in line with your expectations, I didn't have to arrange this as you had already posted such negative and false comments on here and approached your conversation with me and other staff members in an aggressive manner but I still felt obliged to try and turn this situation into a positive one. The two younger gentleman you were with that had one of the other rooms had also smashed one of the lights outside the room as seen on our CCTV to which they were not charged for and when we found a couple of items of clothing which you had left behind we arranged to post this first class to your next destination via recorded delivery again at no charge to yourselves, there was also a little further discount added for not meeting your expectations. To state that this hotel is a scam is a lie and is simply ridiculous and I trust the people looking at reviews on this site will look at some of the other 2000 reviews on here and be able to judge accordingly about what this hotel is all about. All in all I believe we have done more than enough to compensate for your disappointment particularly when you quite clearly had no intention of dealing with your disappointment in a fair and reasonable manner. I think it is fair to say that you would not return to this hotel which is something I would encourage but I will advise you that when booking at future hotels to call them in advance to ensure your expectations are met. Steve Bailey Interim General Manager

Great Location - Quiet, Well Appointed Room

Dear Elizabeth M Thank you for you review and how nice to hear you had such a great stay with us. I'm pleased to hear you comment about the view from one of our rear facing rooms, it does not show the Minster which is so often a popular request but as you have said shows some grounds of adjacent buildings such as the rectory and some roof tops of neighbouring buildings. We hope to welcome you back again in the future and hopefully you will get to sample some of our food and beverage offerings Kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager

Location cannot be beaten

Steve B, Manager at Dean Court Hotel, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Dear EuanS_12 Thank you for reviewing your recent visit to our hotel, I'm pleased to hear your stay was an enjoyable one. I think you have put some useful information on here for future guests. With the Minster being our neighbour the bells can be heard chiming on the hour and there is also a practice session on Tuesday nights which normally finishes around 9pm. We are unable to fit air conditioning units in all of our rooms but the portable units are the best solution we can find but this does require the window to be opened slightly to release the hot air and when a race weekend is on there can be additional external noise. If you are to visit us again in the future then be sure to call the hotel directly to discuss our different room options. Kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager
