Best Hotel to stay at. Quiet, excellent service, reasonably priced, excellent food just the best all around experience. The breakfast experience was delightful and the best way to start the day. I especially like the greetings when I retuned each day whether it was early evening or around midnight.

Not only did we make the right choice in having our wedding here five years ago (the best day, stunning location & excellent food) but on returning here to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary, we couldn't have asked for anything more. The little personal touches are simply lovely - an upgrade, champagne, handwritten note of congratulations and happy anniversary written...

Well to be honest we didn't know what to expect, but glad we stayed here. We booked last minute so got a good deal. We were in a deluxe room, Room 1. The room was clean and tidy and large enough for the two of us. The bathroom was even better. The jaccuzi bath was more than big enough for...

We stopped here for a friend wedding. We stopped overnight and I have to say it was a lovely [not cheap] stay. The food was a wedding banquet and was delicious. Breakfast was scrummy and freshly cooked. The hotel is very clean and the staff are helpful but the bar is not cheap. Lots of guests using 'car bars' but...

Thank you very much for your kind words and also for your advice on "car-bars". We do not tolerate this behaviour and any person found using a "car-bar", or who brings alcohol into the hotel grounds, is asked to leave the property immediately. If they do not, we then speak to the Best Man advising him that we are closing...

My husband and I have just had our wedding at Judges Hotel, and what else can I say other than how incredibly fantastic it was.
