This well-established hotel, with its peerless position opposite the famous west end of the Minster, is a firm favourite with British and international guests. A collection of townhouses, it exudes a warm British charm from its light, classical bedrooms, spread over a warren of corridors and staircases, to its all-day well-priced menus. The open-plan ground floor bar-lounge area has the feel of a modern-day inn - stripped-wood floors, leather Chesterfields - and makes the most of a long and narrow space while the dining room capitalises on its Minster views. Although there are few facilities, the hotel scores highly for the warmth and friendliness of the staff who are walking gazetteers of York.



Slipping out of the hotel at night to gaze up at the spot-lit Minster is magical.

The hotel is next to York Minster in the city centre, surrounded by pubs, restaurants and shops and a short walk from the university.
By car: Dean Court is 45 mins from Leeds, 1 hour 40 mins from Manchester and just over 4 hours from London. The hotel offers paid valet parking.
By train: London Kings Cross to York takes around 2 hours. The hotel is a 10-minute walk from the station.

Style & Character

Anyone who wants to be in the historic heart of York at a good-value price will enjoy staying here. The quirky staircases and little passageways and landings have a curious charm.

Service & Facilities

We love coming back from a day's sight-seeing and shopping, to enjoy a cuppa - or something stronger - with a ringside seat to view the Minster. Dogs are welcome in several rooms and are given water bowls and treats. Owners can eat with them in the bar area.

Any room with a Minster view we like; even one of the Cosy Doubles on the top floor has a rooftop view. We love the attention to detail, such as bottled water, bedside reading lights, and bathrobes; top-tier rooms also have complimentary soft drinks.
