4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Very comfortable with a good breakfast. Saturday was very busy with York races and numerous stag and hen events in town and it was four deep at the bar with the outside area overflowing. The tipping of bottles into a bin was something that could perhaps be done at a different time of day!!

The great thing about the Judges Lodging other then the style, customer service and quality is how quiet it was of a night, with the curtains drawn I could have been in the country side not a city. A perfect night for a tired traveler.

Thank you! A good night sleep is very important to us, so we are delighted you were able to experience this in the city centre. We also invest in some great mattresses which we think help to add to a good nights sleep! Thank you! More

Its location is centrally located next to the York Minster, with everything at your doorstep. We were glad we upgraded our room (the Judge's room) and stayed in a spacious room overlooking the front terrace, it wasn't too noisy. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast is plentiful and delicious. The overall atmosphere is upbeat and very nice. The... More

Thank you for your lovely review, it certainly sounds like a good stay. We do struggle with car parking as there are none closer to us than a 5-10 minute drive away. We do use the Council Car Park with permits which cost £8.00. I don't think we would be able to offer a Valet Parking Service, in case a... More

Had a fantastic meal here last weekend, at first we thought we wouldn`t be able to get in as we hadn`t booked but our waiter ( student from uni from ainsdale ) set us down on a table that had just been vacated. He gave us great service throughout the meal, would definitely re-visit.

The room we had was at the back of the hotel, within the garden. The room itself was very nice with everything you need. The location is lovely, right in the centre with lots of nice shops nearby.
