Stayed here in July 2014 weather was fabulous sat outside in large beer garden lovely food all reasonably priced. Was bit worried about noise at night but couldn't hear anything, rooms warm but fans provided. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Fabulous bathroom my only thing was no hairdryer in bathroom and no socket near mirror to dry your hair... More

We have used the Judges before when it was just a boutique hotel, I say just boutique because it was acquired by the Thwaites brewery group and they have given it a wonderful makeover, it is now simply stunning, the décor is very chic. Staff are efficient and friendly, room was very comfortable, drinks on the back terrace were so... More

Since the refurbishment my friend has insisted that we try Judges and we weren't disappointed! My friend is a vegetarian and she was really happy with the choices, the staff were all really friendly and polite and the environment and atmosphere is beautiful! The menu did seem a little small but it didn't disappoint as far as flavour and size.... More

We spent a very enjoyable day in York on sunday and called into The Judges Chambers for a drink & something light to eat. As it was a sunny day we wanted to sit outside, the garden at the front was full but we were directed by very friendly staff to the terrace at the back, which was very well... More

I stayed at The Judges Lodgings for three nights with my two daughters at the end of August. It is an immaculate hotel with beautiful decor and furnishings. The rooms are spotless and the staff are really lovely. The standard of food is excellent and you could'nt get a better location. I parked at the Leeman car park by the... More

My partner and I stayed at the Judges Lodgings last summer,and had no thoughts of booking anywhere else, when we returned again this year. The hotel has had a make over since we last came, and it looks fabulous inside. We landed a tad early for check in, but the manager had no qualms about taking our bags from us,... More

Stayed four nights and had also stayed 5 nights in June 2013. Great rooms both visits, beautifully appointed, great bathrooms. central location to everything in York. Included breakfast is great and service excellent. Wi fi works well in the rooms. Just don't expect a lift to take you to upper floors, it's stairs only.

Thank you for the fantastic 5* review and its great to read you have had 2 long stays with us! Your concise review sums up everything we try to provide and is great to read. The lift would be a great addition but our Grade 1 status prevents us from installing one! We hope you choose to stop with us... More

Popped in here for a quick drink and I really like the refurbishment. My hubby particularly likes the German lager they do on draught. Good value and the staff are pleasant and polite. The refurb work has made this hotel something very special now - airy, bright and modern. The only slight criticism is that you can only smoke out... More

Thank you for your 5* review and big thumbs up to our Warsteiner tank beer and our new team and new look! We have tried to balance the smoking and it has worked well having the rear terrace as a none smoking area and I'm pleased it didn't spoil your visit too much. We look forward to seeing you again...
