We were due to stay at the Judges Lodgings in July this year, but due to a senior moment the girlfriend booked Judges Court in error (see my other review), so we had have yet another night in York (shame :-) but this time with the correct hotel being booked. We stayed at the end of Aug 2015 and upon... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights as we were down for a wedding in York. We travelled by train and the reception was in the Merchant Adventurers' Hall so the central location was ideal. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and held on to our luggage for us all day on the day of our departure as... More

This stay was a gift from our daughter. The hotel is lovely and full of character. There is a good selection of beers in the bars. The hotel is very popular and can get very busy. We stayed in the Clifton suite which overlooks the front of the hotel and unfortunately also the bottle bins which staff emptied bottles into... More

A really lovely hotel with staff more than willing to go the extra mile if needed. A lovely old building but really well presented inside. Rooms were lovely and very well presented. Very clean as was the hotel itself. Breakfast was also very good with a huge choice to pick from. We also went on 2 ghost tours. The 1st... More

We have just stayed at this hotel for 2 nights as we had a family wedding in the city. Although we didn't spend very long in the hotel our room was very nice on the back terrace.

Thank you for your kind words. Our terrace rooms, which are brand new, are compact however they still have facilities such as tea and coffee and air conditioning in them. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we are glad you enjoyed ours. We try to have a lot of variety at breakfast which is why have... More

Fantastic location for this extremely busy and buzzy hotel. On arriving we were disappointed with our room, as we felt it rather claustrophobic. We have stayed in the Thwaites character hotel in Cirencester, which was excellent,and probably that was a reflection of how we felt. However, on informing the team we were immediately given another room which was fab. Lovely... More

Gorgeous Meal, reasonably priced and great selection. I had cauliflower risotto which was delicious and filling. Staff were lovely but not exactly speedy. Great outdoor areas in front and behind. Would definitely go back again.
