Accessible rooms

The BEST WESTERN PLUS Dean Court Hotel prides itself on providing access for all its guests

Facilities at The Dean Court currently include:

Ramp Access for guests in wheelchairs. Ramp incline is 7.2 degrees over 10′ length.

Ramp and Entrances are suitable for conventional-sized electric wheelchairs

Due to our location and the age of the historic building, our ramped entrance requires our staff to assist you. The temporary ramp protrudes a little on to the road of this side street – which is pedestrianised for several hours each day. Disabled parking is allowed at other times which means there is a slight risk of the access being **blocked by parked cars. Staff are therefore ready and willing, at all times, to assist guests as best possible.

**This is the only practical access for guests confined to electric wheelchairs

PLEASE ADVISE HOTEL ON ARRIVAL IF  YOU PLAN TO BE OUT OF HOTEL AFTER 10.45 PM

 Once inside there is total access to all public areas, (The Bar, D.C.H – the restaurant, The Court Cafe-Bistro, Lounge areas) and of course accessible fully equipped toilet facilities

“Best in York.” KJ Edinburgh

We enjoyed staying at the Dean Court for two nights this month. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The location is superb and could not be better.
