After we had a very unsuccessful visit to The Judges Lodgings in July, a visit I left a very negative review about, after a long discussion over the phone about our stay with Nick James, the general manager, he invited us to come and stay again to try and change our opinion of the newly refurbished Judges Lodgings.

Just spent a three night break at this super hotel, everything about this hotel is great, rooms superb, staff all happy and friendly, food very good. We stayed in The Belfry room which was up 52stairs but it was well worth the climb as the room was lovely. Lots of money has been spent on the furniture, and the bedding... More

Having stopped here in October 2013, which was great, I can only commend the hotel for its dramatic refurbishment. The staff are very friendly, food excellent, and new layout quite a revelation! It really is the perfect pitch for a break in the beautiful city of York, close to all the main attractions. My wife and I stopped in one... More

Perfect central location with Betty's tea rooms and the Shambles 2 minutes walk away. There is no parking at the hotel but you can park up to offload the car. The car was parked about 10 min walk through the park along the river. We arrived first for a corporate "do" and reception was behind the hotel bar in the... More

Very traditional City centre Hotel. Freshly, tastefully refurbished this year. Staff very friendly & efficient. Food delightfully tasty. Beers local & served with a smile from this youthful team. Would recommend ONLY to able bodied travellers. There is NO LIFT in this quaint hotel, the dual staircase at the front looks idyllic but is a challenge to the mobility limited.... More

Many thanks for your review of your stay. It's great to read all of the things that you enjoyed about your stay but I appreciate there were a couple of things that weren't quite right for you.

My partner and I stayed at Judges Lodging over 16th-19th August as we were keen to avoid a chain hotel and we were attracted to the beautiful décor of The Judges Lodging and its very central location. Upon arrival, the staff who greeted us at the front desk were friendly and polite. We had booked a ‘Garden Room’ and were... More

Many thanks for your review and for coming to stop with us during the Summer. The Garden rooms have been extremely popular with a lot of guests (who have posted reviews) but have also not been to other guests tastes due to their brand new construction and location.

Staff were very friendly and accommodating. On checking in we had one of the new garden rooms but would not recommend these rooms. After being shown to our room we found that the blinds didn't work and there was considerable noise coming from what we think was kitchen extractor fan. We were moved to another Garden room three doors down.... More
