York Surprise

19/10/2019 trudykosky, London, United Kingdom

Stayed first time at a Best Western Hotel - Dene Court. I will keep this short like our 3 night trip. Perfect location within easy walking distance of places of interest. Room with a view of The Mins... more

Dear trudykosky Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at the Dean Court Hotel, I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your 3 night stay with us and would recommend our hotel to future guests. We hope to welcome you back to the hotel in the future. Kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager

Not just a perfect location and a beautifully decorated room, but outstanding attention to detail. My single room had everything I needed, including a fridge with water bottled by the hotel in their r... more

Dear AnonBristol1 Thank you so much for your review and how wonderful to hear that your stay was such a pleasant one. It is about the little touches, we are fortunate here that our staff understand the importance of how these little touches can enhance a guests experience. To hear of your praise for our breakfasts and the quality of the bedroom is again wonderful to read and all the staff and myself hope to welcome you back to the hotel for another fantastic stay in the future. Kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager

Perfectly located

14/10/2019 117nickd, London, United Kingdom

Sadly just a one night stay to this lovely city and as many have said right next to York Minster. I used the postcode to drive into the centre and locate the hotel unfortunately that put the hotel on ... more

Steve B, Manager at Dean Court Hotel, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Dear 117nickd Thank you for your review. I am pleased that for the most part you enjoyed your stay with us. There are some rooms that get warm here and to counteract that opening a window is the best way of bringing a natural breeze into the room but as you have quite rightly identified there can be some external noise, our location is fantastic for its proximity to so many of York's attractions but at the same time we are equally as close to some eating and drinking establishments. We have a variety of rooms on offer and all I would say is call the hotel directly if you are to stay again as only the staff here know each and every room and would be able to talk through the different options we have. I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy the orange juice, I will raise this point with the appropriate teams to investigate further. Thank you for your positive comments regarding your observations of our staff member in reception, as with our location, our staff are among the best in York. We hope to welcome you back to the hotel again soon. Kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager

Excellent midweek break

Dear Lorraine C Thank you so much for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Dean Court Hotel. I am pleased to hear that you loved the room, the hotel, the staff and our restaurant offerings. We do try our utmost to ensure all of our guests enjoy what we have to offer but what is ideal for one person may not be right for another and I guess there is no right or wrong but just personal interpretation but I appreciate you mentioning your enjoyment of our afternoon tea. The Langley suite is regarded by many as our best room in the hotel and it is fantastic to read that you enjoyed all that the room has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the future. Kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager

Great location, near everything!

06/10/2019 754benets, Cambridge, United Kingdom

Good looking hotel with pleasant open spaces. But its best feature is its position - right next to the cathedral and the Shambles. And valet parking at £20 - not bad for York. DON'T take a 'cosy' ro... more

Owner Response
Steve B, Manager at Dean Court Hotel, BW Premier Collection, responded to this review
Dear 754benets Thank you for taking the time to write a review, We do have a variety of rooms, some are large and some are small, some are rear facing and some are front facing, each can have an advantage depending on what it is you want from your room and so I will always advise our guests to call the hotel directly to ensure they will be happy with their choice and that it is the right room for them. I'm sorry to hear that the cosy room wasn't the right choice for you and that the air con unit and fridge provided actually detracted from the stay. Our location of course is perfect for almost every guest and I am pleased that this along with the valet parking service we offer added more of a positive element to your stay. Please do call us directly if you are to consider staying again as I am confident we can exceed your expectations on a future stay. Kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager
