“Great position for everything”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

Stayed here overnight in April. Very helpful staff. Room was small but well furnished and bed was comfortable. The staff at breakfast were so friendly and welcoming. The breakfast itself was fantastic with plenty of choice. We walked out the main doors and the Minster was to the left, and the shops were within a few minutes walk. Fantastic location. We will return.

My friend and I loved every minute we stayed at the Dean Court Hotel. The great service began with the courtesy of the valet and continued throughout our stay . The room was beautiful and had lots of niceties like an ironing board, robes and even an umbrella in the closet. The breakfasts were superb as well as the lunch and dinner we has at the bistro. We were right opposite the magnificent York Minster so we could walk over any time and even heard a bell concert from our room. We were also adjacent to the medieval part of York and could walk literally everywhere. I can't say enough good things about this hotel!

We have often promised ourselves a stay in this hotel because of its proximity to the Minster and centre of York. We were not disappointed. The reception was excellent, the room small but spotless and comfortable, and the breakfast excellent. An afternoon cup of tea was delivered quickly when we said that we were in a hurry. Will definitely stay again - longer next time.

We stayed for a weekend away and from arrival to leaving, everything was perfect. The staff greeted us with a smile, nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is spotlessly clean, our room was upgraded to one with a fabulous view of the Minster. The room was a good size, with stylish furniture, lots of tea and coffee on the tray (and very nice biscuits!), the bathroom was very clean and spacious and modern, and the bed very comfortable. Our car was taken away and parked for just £13 per 24 hours, which we thought was excellent, and then brought back quickly when we were leaving. The hotel is so close to the centre and within walking distance to everything we wanted to see. Breakfast was very good - the welcome at breakfast was cheerful and friendly, with a plentiful buffet of cereals, pastries, juices etc., and an extensive menu of cooked-to-order hot dishes - really good. There is nothing we could fault about this hotel and we will definitely come back if we return to York. Perfect and definitely recommend.

We chose the Dean Court for its superb location facing the West Front of York Minster, but were delighted to find that the hotel itself was very pleasant. Granted, the old narrow hallways look a touch worn and occasionally retain the cooking smells from below, but in general the hotel has been nicely refurbished, keeping the charm of the old with the amenities of the present. Everything was clean and thoughtfully detailed. The staff could not have been more welcoming or helpful with all sorts of details, and the food in both the Court Bistro and the DCH Restaurant was delicious. Eating breakfast while looking at the Minster was an amazing treat! We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Dean Court and highly recommend it. Some of the rooms are very small, but Room 27 is spacious and has a great view of the Minster. It's worth the extra £. There are many good restaurants nearby; we especially recommend Bennett's just across the street.

We enjoyed staying at the Dean Court for two nights this month. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The location is superb and could not be better. The rooms were well appointed, and although could do with some updating, were very comfortable. We would gladly stay there again on our next visit to York.

You could lob a peanut from the Dean Court to the majestic York Minster cathedral -- although I don't know why you'd want to do that when you can walk to the amazing church in two minutes. It is enough that the Dean Court, a Best Western hotel, is so close to the city's principal historical and religious center. York abounds in history ranging from the most ancient times. There are castles and museums and ruins and walls and theaters and so much else to see. The Dean Court is squarely in the middle of the attractions -- a very good hotel with an excellent staff, good food and perfect service. We loved it.
