My husband and I arrived in York on a Friday evening after an awful journey due to bad traffic. It was therefore such a relief to be warmly greeted by the Dean Court staff. Our car was whisked away to be parked, leaving us able to relax in our lovely spacious room. As requested we were on a higher floor...

Had a overnight stay at the DCH and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our room was at the back of the hotel, and was so quiet, spacious and comfortable. We honestly wished we could have stayed another night. Breakfast was tasty with plenty of choice. This is one of our favourite hotel's and a wonderful base to explore York. I really must...

A very good stay at a comfortable hotel. Position is next to Minster, central to everything. Stayed in a 'cosy' double nr. 31, plenty big enough with large ensuite. Good breakfast, good choice. Paid extra for car parking, worth it if you have ever visited York. Will stay again for sure

Incredibly convenient for daughters graduation in the Minster. Excellent service, lovely rooms - although very warm even with the heating turned off. We ate in the restaurant - the food was fab - it was virtually empty which was a shame for the hotel but great for us. Location couldn't be better. Valet parking service. Would definitely recommend this hotel...
