Wonderful outdoor patio with good service. Great place to spend the afternoon into the evening. Prices were reasonable and the drinks expertly crafted. We did not have a full dinner but did have some random starters that were quite tasty. There are many choices in this part of York, but if the weather permits, there aren't many better for sitting...

We stayed for a few days for our anniversary and we couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The room was beautiful, kept extremely clean and the walk in shower was a joy! The staff were so friendly, professional and courteous they made the stay an even bigger pleasure. The flask of fresh milk and homemade biscuits were a great idea...

Well what can I say , we arrived ready to check in and were told there was a problem with the room we had book so we were given a free upgrade to The Belfry room with a jacuzzi bath and a fantastic view of the York Minster. We had an evening meal in the restaurant which was lovely and...

Went for a long weekend to York. This hotel is perfect - location, room, food, staff. Would highly recommend it. No parking facilities but there is a reasonably priced car park a short walk away through a lovely garden. The ghost walk, boat trip and National Railway Museum are definitely worth doing. Plus, a Brewdog close by too. 10/10

My partner and I stayed with you on 13 February 2017. We stayed in room 20 on the ground floor, and the room itself was laid out excellently, it was very clean and tidy and the shower was absolutely to die for. The only downside to being on the ground floor was it the blinds did not show up very...

Landed on this gem after having it recommended by a friend. it was a bank holiday and very busy. Ordered lobster and chips, fantastic sitting in the sun, very busy and lively place. Called back later in the evening for a drink.

Thank you for your kind words. We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your visit to us. Our outside courtyard, terrace and back garden are great spots to soak up the sun. It is great to hear we welcomed you here twice in a day. We hope to welcome you back many times in the future.

Lovely weekend at the Judges Lodging. Our room was large and nicely furnished, as well as spotlessly clean, as was our bathroom. It's a beautiful building, with lots of nice touches around - statues in the dining room, quirky stools in reception. Breakfast was great, couldn't fault it. The position of the hotel is excellent, really central but extremely quiet,...

Lovely hotel in the heart of York. No onsite car parking but the public car park at Marygate is only a short walk away and £12 per day. The hotel rooms are a good size and nicely decorated, and the breakfasts are excellent.

I visited the judges lodging with my partner and another couple. We'd travelled for 2 hours and were there for the day. Our first stop was for a drink at the judges lodging.

Thank you for taking the time out to write this review. We do recall this unfortunate event while you were enjoying our cellar bar, we really did try to help you clean up, in terms of providing a clean cloth and ice. When things like this happen we absolutely sympathise however they are just sometimes out of our control; we...
