Right across the street from the Minster and around the corner from 2 different areas with small shops and venues to explore, the Dean Court is a great location to stay for a walking vacation in York. I spent 2 nights here.
I arrived early, and they do mean it when they say '2pm checkin', but they delivered my bags to my room while I dined in The Court restaurant in the hotel lobby. My room and a few others were in corners of the hotel that are not lift accessible, but for checkin and checkout the porter was fast enough at picking up my bags that it wasn't a problem.
The room I was in was beautifully decorated, though there was some peeling paint in the bathroom. In addition to the main bedroom the room included a den with two bunk beds, additional tvs and many board games, so it would be an excellent choice for family stays.
All of the desk and wait staff were friendly and gave excellent directions to various destinations in York. During my stay in Sheffield and Manchester earlier in my trip I was unpleasantly surprised at the low quality of service in various restaurants, and that definitely isn't the case in The Court.
I recommend the Dean Court as your base of operations during your next York vacation!More
