Dear jsE2806GC Thank you for writing such a positive review after staying with us at the Dean Court Hotel whilst exploring this fantastic city. Location and service are detrimental to a great stay, we are blessed with our location and work very hard to ensure we deliver on the service. It is great to read that you wish to return and when the time comes be sure to book directly with the hotel to speak with one of our team about your preferences. We look forward to your return. Kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager

Really disappointing rooms

Dear Alan R1957 Thank you for taking the time to write a review after your recent visit to our hotel, I am of course disappointed to read that we did not meet your expectations with the bedrooms you were allocated, I do wish we were able to have air conditioning in all of the bedrooms but we can't and therefore on hot days our rooms can be warm just as any other building without air conditioning, we have fans for every room and a variety of portable coolers and air conditioners which we distribute around the hotel and I am sorry to hear that these were not helpful in this instance. Our location and our staff are often commented on in such a positive manner and although overall you were disappointed with your stay I thank you for highlighting these factors as positive aspects. We do have other room types available which may be of interest for a future visit and if you were to consider staying again due to our location please call the hotel directly so we can ensure we meet your expectations on your next visit. Kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager

Dear pamelaf974 Thank you for reviewing your recent visit in our D.C.H restaurant at the Dean Court Hotel I am sorry to read on this occasion that the ambience was lacking. With our location, fantastic views and beautifully presented food you would expect the restaurant to always be busy and have a certain atmosphere but sadly on this occasion it did not appear to be the case. It is great to read that you enjoyed the quality of the food, our mismatched crockery and cheerful staff in which you encountered and we hope to welcome you back to the restaurant in the future. Kind regards Steve Bailey Interim General Manager
