We went here as a special birthday treat and we had such a great lunch. The decor and ambience are fantastic, chic but comfortable and very tastefully done. The menu is varied and interesting and there is a great choice. I had the burger which was a little dry but well presented and tastey and my friend had the duck...

So pleased I booked the judges lodging, this hotel had history and perfect charm. Modern and stylish, we had a superior room and it was massive, super king size bed, and a bath big enough for two with a jacuzzi inside. The kitchen was closed for refurbishment when we were there, (it won't be closed for long) which we were...

A lot of money was spent on this and it was closed a long time while the refurb was being done, so it was a shame to see that there had been a leak in the ceiling and that it was all stained and looked pretty bad. That aside, I like what they have done with the inside, lots of...

Lovely bar. Two glasses of wine £14.90 but lovely. Great surroundings you pay for what you get. You can get cheaper at other bars but not the same standard. Got a couple of quid to spare go here,it's a great treat. Bar staff a bit 'off' -need customer service skills.

My wife and I were greatly looking forward to our recent return to the Judges Lodgings, between Christmas and New Year. This time, however, the experience was something of a let down. Because we had seen other reviewers comment on noises disturbing a good nights sleep, on our first stay we requested a quiet room. We were delighted with the...

The hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of York. We found it very convenient to reach all of the major spots, and if you are travelling by train it is a short walk from the train station. If you are driving, like we did, you need to park c10 minutes away, which isn't the end of the world as...

This was our third visit to the Judges Lodging, and once again it didn't disappoint. We had room 6 at the top of the building, which had great views of the Minster. Lovely large room with a top quality bathroom. The payback for the views are the 52 stairs to get there! So if you've got mobility problems, it's a...

An excellent stay at this lovely hotel was slightly spoilt by our experience when first checking in. One member of staff did not deliver the same level of excellent customer we were expecting, however it must be said everyone else was more than helpful, welcoming and delivered excellent service. This instance aside, every other part of our stay was great,...
