There are very few hotels in UK with some many positive reviews as this one. We stayed as part of a wedding party, it is an ideal venue to 'tie the knot' As it was just before Christmas all the decor was in the spirit and lent itself to be very festive indeed. The bedrooms had lots of super persons.... More

I went to a Judges party night this December. I sadly have to say it was very poor. The atmosphere however was lovely and the place was beautifully decorated. The soup was absolutely disgusting and I normally love carrot and coriander. Looking around at other groups I was certainly not the only one to think it tasted awful. The main... More

Thank you for your review and I am sorry that your evening with us last Thursday was not as enjoyable as we would have wished. When we came to serve the turkey main courses at 8.58pm the chef discovered that they were not quite ready. The 16 minute delay in starting to send the main courses should not have happened... More

I visited Judges to stay for a night and have dinner with my son who lives nearby. I received a lovely warm welcome at reception and was conducted to my very comfortable room. The food and service at dinner was excellent and was the same at breakfast. Not cheap but well worth the expenditure.

It's important to give a balanced view when carrying out these reviews and to be honest with the restaurant before leaving. I had heard good things from my wife who visited the restaurant for lunch with friends the week before and had a great experience. Therefore I elected to try it with my 88 year old Grandmother, wife and daughter... More

Staying at Judges is like staying with family friends, but in a magnificent country house. It is quiet and comfortable, and the staff are wonderfully friendly and attentive, but never intrusive. Like many others I use it as a base from which I work, but I often think it would be the nicest place for a holiday. The grounds are... More

from the moment you arrive its like being at home. The staff are wonderful, the food is great, the bar plentiful. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Don't do this if you are on a tight budget but you get what you pay for. Yarm is a lovely town for shopping whilst you are there.

I recently organised a party at Judges for my husband's birthday. From my initial approach to the day of the party, the staff could not have been more helpful. Specific requests were met with no problems and they made what could have been a stressful task (it was a surprise party!) as straightforward as possible. The night itself was a... More

Stayed for one night for a friends birthday party, lovely place, expensive bar...Luke warm beer which was disappointing, apart from that 1st Class. Great room, great breakfast, great grounds, great staff....Why or why do you pay £180 per night and have to pay for a chocolate bar and a bag of crisps ?? Never mind

Prior to your review I wasn't aware of an issue with the temperature of the beer and I will now be speaking to my bar manager as well as my maintenance team about this. I do hope... More

I loved this place when I lived on Teesside in the 90's and was delighted to find it remains super now. We could only stay for Sunday lunch this time but it was just as relaxed and pleasant an experience as ever. Hoping to find an excuse to stay longer soon!
