Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

From the moment we arrived, we were impressed by the outstanding facilities and the hotel's superb location. The staff, particularly Frank, went above and beyond to ensure our experience was nothing short of exceptional. Their attentive service truly elevated our stay to another level. I highly recommend Dean Court Hotel to anyone seeking a memorable and luxurious experience in York.

My husband surprised me with a trip to York for my birthday, and honestly, the hotel is amazing! Great location, the room was a nice size and very clean and breakfast was really good. We arrived at the hotel early due to travelling and wanted to have a full day in York. We dropped our bags off and one of the staff took our car and parked it up. I'd definitely recommend this as parking isn't the cheapest in York, and we found this to be a better option for us. We spoke with the lady on reception who I must say was not the friendliest, we almost felt a nuisance as we'd arrived early and she made us feel like it was a problem but the guy who took our bags and car was really nice. We headed out for the day and then checked in at 3pm and was greeted by Frank, who honestly was the nicest person ever! He checked us in and took us up to our room. He explained everything and showed us round, and even our bags were waiting for us in our room. We stayed in a deluxe double and it was really nice. Couldn't fault the hotel at all. Just the lady on reception on this particular day could have been a little more friendly. Apart from this, we did a ghost walk and dined at a lovely little Italian restaurant, which was nice. Overall, I'd definitely recommend The Dean Court hotel, and we will definitely return and a big thank you to Frank for being so kind and helpful!

We stayed for 2 nights. On arrival, we were upgraded without request. So we had a wonderful spacious suite for use during our stay. Facilities were new, fresh and very clean and comfortable. Breakfast had a great choice and was excellent. All staff were very friendly and helpful. We can’t wait to come back.

My husband and I had a 2 course lunch and coffee here today. From walking in to walking out everything was faultless. Staff really polite and helpful even though the young man that served us was very busy . All our food was good, really hot and tasty. The best meal we’ve had out for many a while and such a bargain too. Will definitely return and recommend.

Excellent location and very friendly staff conveniently placed for access to all that York has to offer and easy walk from railway station. Ability to leave luggage early on day of arrival and day of departure in hotel store very useful.

Booked hotel as part of Inncollection winter breaks. On booking I specifically requested a quiet room. A few days before arrival I was asked to complete online check in where I again requested a quiet room. On arrival we were shown to our room and were told it was a lovely room with a great view of York Minster. The view was excellent. The room, number 61, had been recently refurbished and on first impressions looked good. On closer inspection it would appear to have had a rather poor quality redecoration . The original window had secondary glazing consisting of 6 panels. Two of which were missing. After retiring to bed it became obvious why the secondary glazing had originally been fitted. Downstairs from us was a wine bar with a pub over the road. Throughout the whole evening into the morning there was a steady stream of customers from pub and wine bar along with smokers hanging around outside. The noise from their conversations, shouting at each other, became unbearable. This was compounded by the arrival of taxis picking up customers and refuse wagons clearing bins. Clearly my request had been ignored. On departure I advised the receptionist of the problems to which I was advised that they would never describe a room as a quiet noise free room. I accept this but given I had specifically requested a quiet room they would be well aware of issues with that room? And was also well aware of the missing secondary glazing so would equally be aware of the noise issues. On the plus side both evening meal and breakfast was of a very good quality.

Brilliantly located hotel, with very helpful and friendly staff who help to make your stay a memorable experience. The room we stayed in was pleasant with a beautiful view of the York cathedral. We will hopefully revisit.

A lovely hotel with excellent staff. An excellent breakfast and very good evening menu. Our waiter in the evening, Ben, was especially helpful and amusing. The valet parking was very useful. The position of the hotel, so near The Minster, is excellent.
