I attended the Butterwick Hospice Corporate Reception on Friday 8th May and could not have been more impressed with Judges. The staff were all polite and helpful, food was delicious and nothing was too much trouble.

Super and thank you very much for your kind words. A while ago we did try a 10am finishing time for breakfast at week-ends. We found that this led to guests coming down for breakfast well after 10am and still having a leisurely breakfast as guests were arriving for lunch! Maybe we can re-introduce this when we have a second... More

This hotel is a real beauty! Stunning grounds with walks, fab outside seating area, wonderful food and helpful staff. Excellent well equipped room with free Wi-Fi. (a must!). Complimentary sherry and fruit, the best supply of fluffy towels we've ever seen and dressing gowns, toiletries, scrabble, etc. Excellent food. A lovely hotel.

We have recently enjoyed another great one night stay including dinner and breakfast at Judges. Food and staff were impeccable as always (we're regular visitors). A very personal and courteous reception (especially from Angelo in the bar/lounge). We always enjoy relaxing at judges and usually combine dinner with an overnight stay in a very relaxing, peaceful environment with superb food... More

I have stayed here a couple of times overnight for business. It is a really lovely hotel with great staff and very fine dining. There is also a small but useful gym with a few machines but no weights, which was deserted when I used it so nice to be able to get some exercise when the weather is poor.... More

It is disappointing that this reviewer's opinion of eating in one of the consistently highest rated restaurants in the UK, particularly on such a special day, was not the success that either the booker of the lunch itself or we would have wished for. I have spoken with my Heads of Department who looked after this party.The atmosphere throughout lunch... More

amazing hotel and outstanding grounds for wedding venue, the attention to detail was fantastic, anything we asked was never a problem, the two wedding co-ordinators were excellent and the service we received from breakfast to evening meal was great too, very relaxed and friendly atmosphere would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get married you will love it!!!
