I stayed at the Dean Court with a friend for a weekend break. The location is great being on the doorstep of York Minster. it takes under 10 mins to walk from the railway station so it is very convenient. There are so many interesting places to see which are all within walking distance. As for the hotel, the USP for this place is the staff. The reception staff, bar staff and especially the breakfast staff were all superb and couldn't do enough. The public areas are very comfortable and well furnished. The bedrooms are well equipped; good quality toiletries in the bathroom (fabulous power shower by the way), well stocked hospitality tray ( including cafetiere!), ironing board (who irons on holiday - not me- but at least you have the option), fridge, housekeeping every day. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend to friends. The only negative is that the public areas have air conditioning but the bedrooms don't. Most of the time this wouldn't be an issue but I stayed on what must have been the most hot and humid weekend of the year and the lack of air conditioning was a problem. However, what are the chances of such hot, humid weather conditions ? I would not let thIs influence my decision to stay there again.
