        • Older travelers

          This is a good hotel in a location that would be hard to beat. Shopping, the river, the minster - all there on the doorstep. Good standard of food if you want to eat in, and lots of restaurants nearby if you don't. Staff and service were excellent without being intrusive. (If you are keen to visit the National Railway Museum, the "road train" stops right outside the hotel.)

          I wanted to keep cost down, and chose a small double room. If you can afford it, pay a bit more and get a standard size double or twin if you are staying more than just one night.

        • Family with children

          The location is perfect for exploring York and Yorkshire. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast is excellent. The staff are serviceminded and helpful in every way.

        • Older travelers

          Considering that we were only there for about 20 hours it is difficult to comment. One point about food is that the beakfast was excellent. Great choice and apart from self service cereals was served.

          I felt the parking charge for our limited dtay was rather high I am used to hotels providing this as an inclusive tarrif - but it could be an exception as this was a city centre hotel.

        • Group of friends

          the staff were very pleasant, attentive and helpful. The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice. The location of the hotel was excellent.

          The room we stayed in was very hot and stuffy, although the radiator was not on. The decor of the hotel is slightly tired and overall it's ready for redecoration and new carpets in the public areas.

          Good view, good bed very nice to sleep on, good breakfast.

          bed needs to be secure to the wall, it banged against the wall every time you moved about on it.

        • Older travelers

          The friendliness of the staff. The location being perfect for exploring the city of York and its many attractions and shops. Bistro convenient for lunch including options for 'gluten free'.

        • Couple

          Location was excellent our room looked right onto York Minster, hotel staff were very polite and helpfull. We were given an upgrade to a deluxe room for no extra charge. Breakfast was excellent. Couldn't have asked for more.

          Only bad thing was the £10 additional charge for breakfast room service orders. This price is a bit extreme. They also worded it as "at the small charge of £10 per order" most of the options on the menu were less than £10. Apart from that minor matter, no other complaints.

          The room with the view

          Indifference of staff, i.e. when checking in receptionist seemed more interested in carrying on with a private conversation than greeting a client

          The staff were very friendly, room was comfortable, food was good. The borrowing DVDs service is a nice touch.

          The bathroom wasn't super clean the day I arrived, but was kept clean while I was there.

        • Group of friends

          The staff were extremely helpful and friendly - from the first contact where they offer an excellent valet parking service - to the point of checkout. They stored your luggage and kept the car parked at no extra charge on our checkout day - all done with a genuine smile. Very nice breakfast was included on the site, and is worth having. Quite a special service all round - a credit to the staff and management at the wonderfully well located hotel.

        • Older travelers

          Location is great...across from the Minster and close to the rail and bus station.

          Rooms need better air circulation. Even when turned up, the room was too hot and he ventilation system is very noisy.

          • Average rating
        • Single

          The room was very well appointed for a small single bed room complete with a nice little ensuite. Despite being in the heart of a small and busy city with late night revellers, it was pretty quiet and peaceful. A good nights rest and a lovely breakfast cooked to order. If ever the chance comes to stay in York again, Dean Court will be at the top of my wanted list.

          We have stayed at the Dean Court on 4 occasions- the previous three were excellent occasions but were disappointed on this visit - see below

          At breakfast there were 5 attempts to get our meals correct although the order was given correctly and confirmed by the waiter- eg omitted to bring a porrage starter and considerably confusion of our requests for fied eggs when poached eggs delivered on separate occasions
