Reviewed April 16, 2014

This was our first visit to York and stayed only one night with my husband and no children( for the first time ever).I read the reviews and came to the conclusion there was very few negative comments so that made my decision for me to stay at this hotel,-they were not wrong !! .The location was fantastic ,right by The Minister, the staff were very friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them. We arrived early and were able to leave our luggage and car, which was parked for us off site and went to explore the city. We returned late in the afternoon to find our room had been upgraded for us, and our luggage was in the room with our jackets already hung in the wardrobe -talk about room service!! .We were at the back of the hotel ,which was fine, the room was spotlessly clean,with a tv and dvd, and with a variety of tea, coffee and biscuits to help yourself to. The bed was so comfortable with a choice of pillows.The breakfast menu spoilt you for choice-tea, or coffee was brought to your table and toast if you wanted, you then could then help yourself to a variety of fruit juices, cereals, fruit and pastries, your waitress ordered your hot food which ranged from eggs in what ever way you wanted them cooked, smoked salmon, kippers, waffles or even a boring full English !!! All the staff were extremely friendly but Jayne seemed to go the extra mile, nothing was too much trouble for her. We checked out and again were able to leave the luggage,whilst we ventured into the city again till late on in the afternoon, when we returned to collect the car and our luggage which was even put in the car for us-service with a smile.
All in all ,a great overnight stay which unfortunately was not long enough which means a return visit in the near future, and would definitely stay in the Dean Court Hotel again.

The hotel is located right in the heart of the historic district. A very good value. The rooms are clean and nice while not necessarily luxurious - but because of the location you will spend most of your time out and about anyway. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Room Tip: Street side rooms hear the belltower ... which I like.

This hotel is situated right opposite the York Minister and very central to looking around. It was very convenient and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had breakfast included and there was a large menu to suit all. We would recommend it to anyone.

our stay at this hotel was ok , bar and reception staff very helpful . Rooms a bit dated and require a bit of new decor. Friends room next door to ours wasnt very nice, very dated and worn and bathroom drab and not very pleasant. Very noisy also . Probably wouldnt choose this hotel again

You can't go wrong with the Best Western Dean Court Hotel. It's in a superb location in York. Across the street from the church and right in the heart of the old city. Everything is within walking distance. Went for a quick overnight trip for a friend's birthday. Hotel staff was really welcoming and accommodating. Rooms were very lovely and comfortable. Will be recommending the hotel to anyone I know who will be visiting York.
