Stayed here for two nights. The staff were very efficient and seemed genuinely interested in our welfare and our enjoyment of the visit. The breakfast was wonderful and included in the price. The Minster Room was great, a lovely view and a good size. The only drawback of being the top floor is that the water pressure in the shower... More

Within walking distance of the railway station and all the lovely amenities the city has to offer. The staff were helpful, cheerful and friendly without exception. Lovely room and bathroom, excellent breakfast with plenty of coffee and tea etc. in the room. Perfect way to spend a few days celebrating a birthday.

This was our second trip to York. Stayed at Hotel Du Vin last time which is slightly further away from the centre. If you like HDV then you'll like the Judges Lodging. Loved the character and design of this hotel. Very central, 10 min walk from train station and everything on the door step. We stayed in room 6 which... More

Booked in at the JL last sunday and was given a room (17) just slighty away from the main building on an annex. First impressions were of disappointment . having to pass kitchen bins to get to the exterior door which would not shut ,even without a slam. same goes for the window in the room. Very small room almost... More

Visited here for Sunday lunch recently with my wife. We had not booked and just called at short notice. Downstairs was quite a typical pub setting very cosy but a little dark. We decided to eat upstairs which is a more formal setting and very pleased that we did, The food, setting and service were excellent, we would definitely recommend... More

I was in a 'garden room', which is just off the bar in an artificial garden. The room is very small and everything is terribly designer, but just doesn't work. For example, there are little hooks for the towels that are so small the towels constantly fall on the floor. The fan for the bathroom area keeps going all night... More
