“Another very good Best Western Hotel”
Reviewed 28 May 2011

The nature of my work takes me north, south, east and west and I usually try to locate a Best Western Hotel. Dean Court in York came up to all my expectations. From the receptionist, the gentleman who parked my car, the waiters in the Bistro and at breakfast , the porters and everyone I came in contact with were friendly, helpful courteous and efficient. I will certainly stay at Dean Court hotel when in York and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone. The standard of cleanliness was very high and the breakfast superb.

If you're after a nice English experience in the heart of York, right next door to the York Minster, this is it.

I loved the friendly service, complete with a porter that didn't expect a tip and the English breakfast cooked especially for individuals (not a buffet) and the fact that I could readily duck in and out of the hotel during the day given it's walking distance to everything.

The room was pretty good, nice plentiful pillows for a change and we had a nice outlook.

I don't think I had any complaints at all, perhaps they were a bit overly generous with the air freshner and I'd stay clear of the doughy waffles for breakfast, but other than that - loved it.

Anyone will tell you that this hotel has the best location in the city. It is so close to York Minster that we didn't need to set an alarm clock because we were woken up by the bells both mornings we stayed there at 8am which was perfect! So beautiful to listen to. Because it is inside the old walled city of York it is very easy to walk to all the major attractions. We did York Minster one morning and that can take up quite a bit of time. The Castle Museum near the old Castle is a must see and Fairfax house is a really neat example of a Georgian period house. We enjoyed taking walks on the walls, it is an interesting way to get from one place to another as well, although it does take a little longer. Our room at the hotel was a normal size for a hotel in Europe, the bath room was sizeable though and had a fantastic bathtub as well as a heated towel rack. The extra services are what really makes this hotel great, the valet service upon arrival was a nice surprise as well as bell service was nice. We really enjoyed the free movies that you can borrow from the front desk by allowing them to take a deposit which they return to you. Also, upon checking out they kept our baggage for us until we were ready to leave the city. Overall a very good experience and I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in York.

We stayed here on Saturday 14th May, what can I say, apart from fabulous location, and fantastic hotel. We stayed in room 17, wonderful views of York Minster! I cannot rate this hotel highly enough. The hotel staff were wonderful, very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast Sunday morning was very relaxed, we sat at a table overlooking York Minster, food was lovely, restaurant was clean. Sunday morning we checked out and our car was brought around to front of hotel, parking at front of hotel on a Sunday is free. All in all it was a lovely weekend break, would definitely return back, would recommend the room we stayed in, lovely big room, four poster bed and Molton Brown bath products were fab!

I chose the Dean Court Hotel in York after reading favourable reviews on various websites. Well they were absolutely spot on. It was a delightful place to stay in York for our weekend break. The staff were very courteous and helpful, breakfasts were superb, the location was ideal and the room has small, but comfortable and good value (we chose a small double). Our car was taken and parked off site and brought back for the morning of our departure with no fuss and no bother on our part at all.
To stroll out of the hotel in the mornings and wander into York for the day was ideal. And the hotel was close enough to wander back if you want to – to drop off any purchases or go back to the bistro for lunch.
I hope we will be back soon to take in more of the lovely city and enjoy staying at the Dean Court again.

A great experence from start to finish. The centre of the City situation was ideal and only a hop and a skip from the station. The staff were excellent - there, but not there; helpful, willing and what is more, smiling and they all seemed genuinely happy in their work which is not always the case in some hotels. The room was spacious and very well appointed - the only criticism would be that it looked over a flat roof inhabited by rather too many pigeons - I think I am now an authority on their behaviour (not pleasant - pigeon breast on the menu will now be quite a turn-off!) .
We enjoyed a delicious meal in the restaurant on the first night - very relaxing and the breakfasts were, I think, the 2nd best ever eaten (the 1st being in Tasmania so no competition there). We would certainly return and hope to do so next year and would definitely recommend the Hotel to our friends and family.

Situated just across the road from the Minster, this hotel has to be in one of the best locations in the City of York.
Well appointed, the food is excellent and the service fantastic. All staff were exceptionally helpful, even to the extent of them retrieving my mobile phone from my car after it had been moved to their off-site parking.
There is a small bar which has real ale, cocktails and a very good selection of wine.
While the small rooms are quite small, they are well laid out with sufficient space - and when visiting the likes of York who wants to spend all their time in a hotel room?
In all, we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay and will happily return to the same hotel on our next visit.
