Stayed only one night in York. The hotel was situated in the city centre next to the York Minster, so everything was walking distance and was quite handy. The room was not huge but it was adequate for two people. One thing about the room is, the bed was actually quite small, I was sharing the bed (Queen bed I...

Dear Stacy Y Thank you for reviewing your recent visit to our hotel. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We do have larger beds in some of our rooms as well as twin beds which might have been a better option but there is a strong chance that these were sold out previously which is why...

This hotel is in a truly great location literally a few steps away from the Minster - definitely no better place to be if you want to be in the centre of York. You could walk from the station if you didn't have much luggage but if you have more than a small bag or backpack, it's easy to find...

Dear Melb22 Thank you for reviewing your recent visit to our hotel. All in all it seemed a good stay, our cosy doubles are exactly as you say, fine for a short stay as they have such great amenities but we do have standard doubles, deluxe rooms and suites for longer stays which offer more room.

The location of the hotel is great, it's not too far from the train station. Most attractions are also within walking distance. The staff I experienced at the hotel are very friendly and helpful with advice for tourist attractions nearby. The room was clean, especially the bathroom, with a good pressure shower. The room decor is a bit date as...

I spent two nights at the Dean Court Hotel so that I could see York and go out into the Dales. I arrived before my room was ready, so the hotel stored my luggage while I went out to walk around. When I returned, the luggage had been delivered to my room and neatly set in a corner. The tap...

We picked this hotel based on the proximity to the Minster. It looks like the hotel is in 2 separate sections and I think we were in an older part. The decor was a bit outdated, but the room was a decent size and comfortable. The breakfast was good and there were multiple choices for hot food that could be...
