“Amazing food Friendly people Superb venue for any occasion”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

We got married at judges in 2007 and have just returned for our first visit since. We stayed for bed dinner and breakfast and what great value for money it was. If you take out the prices of the meals it worked out around £70 for the room.
Staff are very friendly and the food was AMAZING.
A must try is the champagne afternoon tea - wow what a treat.
Canopies and lobster starter was fantastic.
The fillet of beef at dinner was possibly the nicest price of meat we have ever tried.
Can't wait to go back.

After holding our wedding, 2 christenings, and a 90th birthday meal in the past at Judges Hotel it was the obvious choice to hold my mums surprise 70th birthday party within the Garden Room at Judges. The events co-ordinators did a stirling job of organising our requirements and the staff on the day were exceptional and very professional. The afternoon tea was delicious with lovely hot drinks served throughout the day. I couldn't recommend Judges highly enough, a beautiful hotel where we hope to return again to soon.

We were married at Judges on 8th March and our day was just fantastic. We can't thank the staff at Judges enough for making our day so special and ensuring everything went smoothly.

Emma and Suzanne have been so helpful and nothing was too much trouble from booking our wedding right through to our wedding day.

Special thanks to Neil for everything on the day, he kept us updated with every part of the day and his customer service was second to none.

Looking forward to a return visit on our anniversary.

Thank you again for making our day so wonderful.

We stayed at this lovely hotel when attending a family wedding held there. The rooms were fantastic: light, airy and very beautiful.

We took our little boy (age 3) and although we thought the hotel would be more suited to adults and couples we were made very welcome. He was very impressed with the room (especially the novelty of a tv in the bathroom) and his own little bed which was made up ready for him. There was lots of space in the room for him to play and the staff were all very welcoming. At breakfast he was able to get exactly what he wanted (great with a fussy child!) and the staff were wonderful.
The grounds at Judges are stunning and the wedding was fantastic, we are looking forward to coming back for a short break.

Had a lovely afternoon tea here courtesy of a gift voucher which was a Christmas present. We decided to end the afternoon with a drink; 2 glasses of Prosecco, 1 vodka and tonic and a diet Coke, the bill was £27.50!! Absolute rip off, know wonder the place was empty when we left!!

Thank you for your review. I am glad that you enjoyed your afternoon tea which had been given to you as a Christmas present. I have personally checked the prices for the drinks served as well as the measures that were used (50ml for the vodka and 125ml for the Prosecco) and I can confirm the prices charged were correct. It is always possible to buy cheaper and our prices are commensurate with other hotels of a similar standard. Perhaps this is why we were full for afternoon tea and then catered for 195 dinners that night. Regards, Tim Howard GM 4/3/14

We had our wedding in January at Judges and we could not have wished for a more perfect day. Arriving at the venue I was greeted by members of staff who unloaded centre pieces from my car and carried the many bags I had with me to my room.
Every single member of staff, throughout the day, were attentive, professional yet personable. Their attention to detail was amazing and they really did go that extra mile to make sure myself, my husband and ALL of our guests were happy. The food was absolutely delicious, many of our guests commented on this.
Our bridal suite was beautiful and the hotel and grounds look fantastic in our wedding pictures.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a venue to get married, the staff are experienced, thorough and very very nice people who you can trust to make sure your special day goes smoothly. Thank you Judges staff for making our day so special.
