We went to the hotel for my wife's birthday with family and friends one of whom suffers from altzimers and she became very tired and sleepy during the meal. The manager arranged for a room for her to have a sleep in at no charge which meant her husband didn't have to leave early to take her home. We where... More

We stayed here on Saturday 23rd January, we have stayed a few times before but it is a while since we were last there. On arrival we were shown to our room and had been upgraded to a deluxe room which we were very pleased about. The room was lovely, had a flat screen tv which is a new addition... More

My husband and I were married at the venue last weekend. We had a perfect day and that is in no small part due to the beautiful setting, and, most importantly, the hard work and enthusiasm of the staff at Judges. The venue itself is gorgeous and the grounds are beautiful - great for exploring. A number of the families... More

We visited this lovely hotel last weekend as guests at a friend's wedding. The venue is very attractive and the Christmas decorations were tasteful. The room where the wedding itself took place as well as the reception suite were both beautifully appointed. The couple chose a barbecue for their wedding breakfast. This was an excellent choice as in the aftermath... More
