Fantastic hotel, right in the centre of the city! Everything we wanted to go to was nearby and so easy to find if you got lost. The staff were really friendly, excellent rooms and a great bar. Would (and will) highly recommend to others.

Stayed for 3 nights last week. This place really is spot-on, but what sets it above others is the standard of service provided by the staff. No matter who you speak to and what you ask for, nothing is too much trouble, and I cannot praise them highly enough.
The hotel itself is in the best location, next to the Minster and so near to the historic old town. Whereas parts of the hotel may need a touch of TLC (as with most older hotels), the rooms are spotlessly clean, well equipped and well maintained. Breakfasts are superb.
We shall return, hopefully later this year.

What a lovely hotel, although we felt our room was a little smaller than expected, it was very clean and comfortable. The food was very good and the waiting staff were friendly and polite. If you are looking for a hotel in the centre of it all, this is an excellent choice. Many shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance. We will definitely return to this hotel.

Stayed here for a long weekend to celebrate my Husbands Birthday. With a friendly welcome we where told we had been upgraded to the four poster bedroom. The room was amazing with fantastic views of York Minster and there was even a Birthday card from the staff. With a large selection of complimentary coffee, teas and bottled water, dressing gowns and even an umbrella which fortunately we did not have to use. Two out of the three nights that we stayed we dined in the Bistro, the menu choice was excellent, spoilt for choice and were not disappointed with taste. On the third night we dined in the main restaurant, DCH. We both choose steak which was cooked to perfection and we are very particular. There is so much to do in York and Dean Court Hotel is perfectly positioned for exploring it all. Would recommend 100% and will definitely be coming back

We recently stayed here for 3 nights and thought it was a great hotel in a location that would be hard to beat. Our room was lovely, we booked a standard room and we were very pleased with the room we received (room 30). We didn't eat in the restaurant so cant comment on the food.

The breakfast was fantastic on the Sunday morning but I think they must have had a different chef on the Monday and Tuesday as it was not as good. I ordered poached egg and on the Sunday I received 2 eggs on 2 circles of toast. Monday and Tuesday I only got 1 of each and it looked quite pathetic on the plate! I never got my pot of tea either and had to remind them every morning.

My other recommendation would be to NOT order a Mojito in the bar. It was awful. I do love Mojitos but this was the worst I have ever had and a waste of my £7! Just little niggles to be honest

Stayed here for a weekend break, courtesy of my Daughter’s thoughtful Christmas present!
And she couldn’t have chosen a better hotel or location! It was fantastic, from start to finish!
Our room was huge, bed was amazing and it was the best complimentary drinks tray I had ever seen in a hotel! Loads of milk (a particular bug bear of mine is that there is never enough milk!) and several flavours of herbal teabags too.
There was a great selection at breakfast, best I’ve seen in a long time and the service was friendly and efficient. Nothing seemed too much trouble and that goes for the reception staff too.
Ideally located next to York Minster (which was a bonus for finding the hotel again after getting lost in the quirky little streets of York!)
I’ve had some mixed experiences of Best Western hotels in the past (mostly abroad, to be fair) but this one has made me seriously consider using this chain more often.
