If you want a modern, identikit hotel, then this isn't for you. Dean Court is charming, quirky, welcoming & comfortable, and it couldn't be better located.
We requested a room on the first floor with a view of the Minster, which was well worth paying the extra for. Our 3 night stay at the end of March was excellent. The room was a deluxe-double, but was more like a suite, with the large double bed in an almost separate room through an archway, and a comfortable living room with a slightly squishy sofa , a large coffee table and two chairs in the bay window. There was also a desk/dressing table with a mirror over, as well as a generous tea & coffee tray. There were 2 tv's, one in each room! The bathroom was lovely, with a large corner bath (although the shower curtain could be better placed to avoid the dreaded clinging!).The room was spotlessly clean. We slept well, as the Minster bells don't ring at night, and there is little street noise until morning.
Breakfast was excellent, with plently of choice on the buffet, as well as hot dishes cooked to order, toast and tea/coffee served at your table. Try the eggs benedict at least once! We ate in the DCH restaurant one evening, and had a great meal, with very good service.
The valet parking was very useful and reasonably priced. You certainly don't need your car to explore York, as you can walk almost anywhere in the centre from the hotel, with the medieval streets just a few minutes away. There are also plenty of restaurants within such easy walking distance, we ended up going back to the hotel via a longer route, just to savour the lovely streets by night.
