This is a lovely hotel on the doorstep of beautiful York. Staff we friendly and very welcoming. We arrived early for check so dropped our bags, but when we returned our bags had been taken to our lovely attic room with full view of York Minster. Fresh milk for teas and coffee was a treat along with scrumpy biscuits each...

Stayed 2 nights at this hotel & really enjoyed it. The room, although a little on the small side was beautifully furnished & very well equipped. The staff were extremely friendly & nothing was too much trouble. The location is great right in the middle of the city. Would highly recommend.

Another cosy evening meal at the Judges Lodging. As much as the food / menu are as good as they are (with a raft of interesting "specials" to add to it) ... it is the people who help create the added value. Lively and awake. Friendly and attentive albeit with the odd slip up. But a great asset in themselves....

This was our third stay here, the previous two times we stayed in rooms inside the main building. The reservation for this trip was made using Booking.com and stated Best available double room. This turned out to be one of the annexe rooms with courtyard view. The courtyard is an outdoor drinking area up to 10pm with tables and chairs...

My wife and I stayed here in a feature double room October 25 - 28, 2016. 3 days is about enough time to see the sights of York.
