This was our second stay here, and it was as good as the first, some of the staff even remembered us from the year before. I love the location, and food is top notch and the beer and wine again is brilliant. Rooms are lovely and the beds are super comfy. However it is the staff that make this place... More

My Husband and I stayed here on Saturday night, I booked it as part of his 30th Birthday surprise (for which I'd planned a surprise party on a boat on the river!). The staff were extremely helpful and friendly especially Elouise who was on the reception desk. The room was beautiful, spacious and clean with a large bathroom and a... More

Better than expected. We initially entered through the lower entrance, but it was very busy and crowded. We were invited to go upstairs to the restaurant .we were warmly met by a young waitress who showed us to a table in an exquisite room. A great selection from the menu was offered and our waitress was able to give us... More

This is a very nice old building converted into a hotel. I love the fact that rooms have names and we stayed in the Doctor's Office. The room had beautiful views of the Minster and a four poster bed which was big and very confortable. The décor could be improved as well as the lighting in the room (either too... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our Inn. I'm pleased that overall you enjoyed your experience with us. During the quieter months of January & February we have had a complete new boiler system fitted which should assist with temperatures in the rooms. 'The Doctors Office' is one of our best rooms in the house, a Feature Double,... More

We dined a s a family for my husbands birthday. The building is beautiful, lovely dining room, staff are relaxed but made us feel very welcome. The food was good and there was a great choice for everyone. Would return for another meal.

My partner & I stayed at the Judges Lodging in York for a couple of nights at the beginning of February. (1st to 3rd) We arrived a little early around 12pm knowing that we couldn't official check in until 3pm. We were prepared to drop off baggage & explore the city, coming back later on to check in, but were... More

There are few places that you can go to where you feel you're in a friend's house for the weekend but still treated as a customer and to a very high standard. Judges Lodgings is just such a place. Brilliantly situated right in the middle of York, with every possible facility on your doorstep. We took the train from London... More

Lovely little hotel slap bang in the heart of York. We got a winter deal - worth looking out for - so was great value. Small rooms but very well appointed m, interesting decor and felt lovely. Excellent breakfast in the characterful underground bar. Would highly recommend.

Thank you for your review - we are very fortunate with our central location! We do like our guests to leave after a good full breakfast so I'm pleased that you enjoyed that; why not try one of our Character or Feature rooms next time if you are looking for something a little more spacious? More
