Spent my birthday weekend here last month and I absolutely loved the refurbishment. We stayed in the garden terrace room and in my opinion I loved it. The room was nicely done and it had cute finishing touches like the judges wig on the teapot.

My partner and I were in York in February and booked the Judges Lodgings as it was a short walk away from where we were staying. We were led past quite an opulent looking dining area and then downstairs to a nicely presented set of smaller rooms where we dined. I had a half lobster for my main course, followed... More

Please do not disregard AnnekaMarie2015's review as 'word for word' that is my opinion as well. 1. Did we enjoy our visit? Yes. 2. Would we stay again! Yes, but we would not have the Garden Terrace Rooms. By the way, AstroTurf and a few dying shrubs do not make a garden! We would recommend not to stay at peak... More

The standards of the rooms and the service are really excellent. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. For tea making there are usually plastic UHT cartons, here one can collect a thermos flask of milk whenever required. There was even a teapot. We had Room 18, outside in the courtyard on the ground floor. The enormous bathroom had... More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a lovely review. We are delighted you enjoyed your bedroom facilities. We think offering fresh milk is needed when spending the night away from home! We are lucky to be situated right in the centre of York so most attractions are minutes away on foot. We are pleased you enjoyed your... More

Our 2nd visit was just as good as the 1st. Stayed in a different Classic room this time. It was a lot smaller but still very nice and quiet. All the staff are really nice and the breakfast is excellent.

Upon first arrival, lovely welcome, shown to our room. We booked a slightly more expensive room (not the most expensive), as it was a special occasion, my Husbands birthday. We booked one of the newly designed rooms around the back of the hotel, sounded amazing, own front door, opens onto terrace area, bijou styling and all mod cons. When we... More

I was lucky enough to be taken away for a city break for my birthday by my wife who booked a room in the Judges. We have called through for a coffee or drink before and always liked the location.

Thank you for your lovely comments about our team, drinks and food. It is very important for us to get these aspects right so we appreciate your kind words. We were recently refurbished in early 2014 where all of our bedrooms, as well as the rest of the building, were re-decorated individually. Please do come and see us again. More
