This is a lovely hotel with fantastic staff. We had dinner for 4 nights and everything we ate was delicious. Breakfast was good and fresh. We had to sometimes wait for our meal but that was fine as it was always freshly cooked.

Faboulous three course meal worth at lease a Michelin star. Very reasonable price. We have visited Judges on many occasions an the ambiance and service is always wonderful. The food again is always good but this time it was even better than before. Will be going back over the Christmas period.

My partner booked this hotel after looking at various hotels in the area, and we were not disappointed. From driving along the drive, and to be greated by Michael, and shown to our lovely spacious room, I couldn't fault a thing. Champage in the room on arrival was a lovely treat. Friendly, professional staff, who couldn't do enough for you.... More

Decided to have a night away, with dinner, including breakfast, and picked Judges as it was no to fat for us to travel. It was a lovely Saturday afternoon and as soon as I pulled up at the door, we were greeted by a doorman. Registration was very informal, and quick, and we were shown to our bedroom. The bedroom...

We recently held our wedding reception at Judges. Suzanne and Kim were very professional and thorough, guiding us through our options. We are a couple in our 50s who wanted one reception party following our church service. This was happily accommodated and tailor-made to suit our needs. We chose the BBQ buffet meal which was first-class and plentiful. Judges provided... More

We held our wedding here in August and it was the most fabulous place. The staff are excellent in their jobs and from the initial meeting to the day itself they couldn't do enough. My Aunt had a knee operation a few days before and the staff went out of their way to make her comfortable- even bringing ice packs!!.... More

Brilliant what a lovely place. Food was lovely, staff good a little slow but I think they were been trained. Didn't stay over so I can't comment on the rooms and service. This hotel is in lovely grounds, you would need a car or taxi.

Thank you for your kind review. Depending on how the day is progressing I know that Rachael sometimes adjusts the agreed timings of the day, with the Bride and Groom's approval, in order to accomodate any changes that may have occured. That way the day as a whole still remains nicely balanced. But thank you for the comment, feedback like... More
