Dear mrslauer Thank you for taking the time to write a review and indeed such a glowing review. I was the manager on shift at the time and although there was a small issue with the booking I'm pleased we were able to offer a solution promptly and with little impact on your stay. Frank is so often mentioned in a positive manner on here and on other forms of feedback that our customers very kindly offer to us and like so many before you his warming personality has impressed and added to the experience of staying at the Dean Court Hotel. your comments on our food offerings will be welcomed by our chef,his team and the waiting staff and I am thrilled to hear that you and your family enjoyed your time in York. If you do happen to be back in York in the future we look forward to welcoming you back to the Dean Court Hotel. Kind regards Steve Bailey Deputy General Manager
