Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 February 2013

We stayed here for one night (dinner, bed and breakfast). The service was excellent - staff all extremely welcoming. Room was spacious and spotless, with a great view of the York Minster. Meal in DCH restaurant was excellent and the breakfast quality and choices were also very good. Prime location in York. Will definitely stay here again

Excellent location next to York Minster and within easy reach of numerous attractions including Bettys tea room where we enjoyed afternoon tea.Joined by friends who had travelled from Scotland we all agreed we could not have chosen a better hotel.Rooms,staff and breakfast were all first class and I would have no hesitation in recomending this hotel. We will definitely return.

we stayed here just after xmas on a saturday night, the hotel was lovely, nice decor and the room was just the same really clean with great decor. The service on the front desk was excellent and the breakfast in the morning was nice and well presented. Other plus points were free wifi,decent tv, and a great setting right next to the minster. I would happily come back here.

It was so easy to walk from the station to this hotel where the staff were friendly and helpful. Visited with our family and our grandsons had the perfect family room, just opposite our own room. Everything was clean and well presented. We ate in the Bistro on the first evening, this was acceptable food but not special. Breakfast was very good however with staff extremely helpful, particularly with our grandsons. It was ideal just to walk to the sights of York, with everything an easy walk. Would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting York for the first time.

If you think the little things make the difference between a good and an excellent hotel, then the Dean Court could be for you. Valet parking is a nice touch, but to come back to collect your car and find your luggage has already been neatly stored in the boot is a big plus. Dinner and breakfast was excellent, and a view of the Minster again turned a good experience into something memorable.
Try it, I doubt if you'll be disappointed.

From start to finish our experience at the Dean Court Hotel was flawless. Upon arrival, we were escorted to our room and after 15 minutes a courtesy call was put through to ensure everything was to our liking. As this was a Valentines treat for my girlfriend, I had ordered the PS I Love You package and it was worth every penny. Champagne, nibbles, a Molton Brown set and rose petals on the bed plus breakfast in bed the following morning. I also upgraded the room which I would recommend. We had the best view of the Minster which was just in front of our window! As we arrived late we ate at the restaurant on our first night and what an experience. Beautiful food, a bottle of wine I intend to purchase again and fantastic service. As I am dairy intolerant, the staff ensured that they recommended food that would suit and also brought me a specially prepared fruit plate for dessert as I could not eat anything else on the menu. After a few drinks in York the second night we came back to the hotel a bit peckish and the Night Porter (who deserves a special mention) was so accommodating. He brought us drinks and some light snacks, gave us our space in the bar but seemed to know to appear if there was anything else we wanted. He was a thoroughly pleasant, helpful chap, who clearly enjoys the job he does and takes pride in it. In fact, all of the staff were really helpful. Staying here was an absolute joy and we can't wait to go again!

Room Tip: Room 19 was amazing and had a spectacular view of the Minster.

Stayed for 2 nights 1st and
2nd Feb 2013.
Paid £198 for bed and breakfast small double room for 2.
Room 63 , our room was really nice modern and clean. We asked for a room with a view of the minster and what a view we had !!!!
Staff were all very polite to us and valet parking was a great novelty and so easy with no hassle of walking the streets with luggage.
The nearest pub was literally across the street.
Great selection of very nice breakfasts.
Would definitely book again for our next York trip.
