Facilities for Families

Along with four Family Rooms the BEST WESTERN PLUS Dean Court Hotel is delighted to offer the following services to parents.

Should you require anything else please tell us when making your reservation. We will do our utmost to make the necessary arrangements in readiness for your arrival. Full instructions are in the Room Information Folder.

Baby Listening; A facility through the telephone system- which is audible to Reception Staff at all times

Qualified Nannies: Can be engaged on your behalf. Price guide: £15 per hour

Cots and Extra beds: It is essential to inform the hotel at the time of making your room reservation. Several rooms can accommodate an extra bed and/or *cot. (We regret that our Superior, de Luxe and 4-Poster de Luxe Rooms are unsuitable for cots and /or extra beds)

*Helpful Hint: You may prefer to bring your baby’s own bedding. In our experience this provides a feeling of security for your child, and will hopefully ensure a peaceful night for you too!

Disposables: Please ask for extra large plastic bags for used nappies. Tied or sealed bags will be removed by a member of staff on request.

Toy Box: A variety of toys and games are available for the very young. For older children we have Chess, Draughts, Scrabble, Monopoly and Jigsaw Puzzles.

CD/DVD in all rooms. The hotel has a good-sized DVD library. A £25 returnable deposit for each DVD is automatically charged to your Room account. To ensure this is refunded please return goods to the Reception in person.

NB The Hotel’s television system offers 30 channels including BBC NEWS24, Cbeebies, CBBC Channel, E4, BBC3 and more.

The Court is open until 10pm each day (last food orders 9pm) (Closed at 6.30pm-Sundays). D.C.H-the Restaurant, is open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. Highchairs are available on request. Our Chefs will cook almost anything for youngsters and babies on request. (Restricted Menu after 10pm)
