Dean Court Hotel

Last updated: 30 December, 2023

Location, location, location – the only way you could be closer to York Minster would be to camp out on the altar. As it is, this trio of elegantly-converted 19th century townhouses are just a few yards away, and slap bang in the centre of town. If you want to wake up with a direct view of northern Europe’s finest cathedral, go for a deluxe category room as most point that way, (as does the Langley Suite).

There is a restaurant, but with so many cafes and restaurants outside the door, it’s unlike you’ll use it for anything other than breakfast.  

It’s a great choice for history lovers – Guy Fawkes was born a few doors down and the Roman streets of  High Petergate and Stonegate are just outside the door.

Surrounding Area

The hotel is situated on High Petergate – one of York’s main Roman roads, lined with elegant Regency buildings. Famous Stonegate is just around the corner, and all the city’s main attractions, along with a wide range of restaurants, are walkable from here.

Inevitably such a central location means it’s very busy with tourists in the day, but York quietens down considerably in the evening.   

One note of caution – it’s definitely a bonus to be so close to York Minster, but the bells start ringing at 8am so light sleepers hoping to snooze past then might want to bring earplugs.
