Very nice sat in the sun outside having a few drinks. We decided to eat here later and while the food was ok, an hour later we both felt like we wished we hadn't eaten it. It's not that the food was bad, it wasn't, maybe we just shouldn't have eaten anything battered as that's what we could both taste later. Would we eat here again? Probably, as the place and staff and ambiance are very good

great hotel loved staying in the courtyard room
staff very friendly the noise from the staff stacking there glasses in the bar until 12 was a little annoying as its 10 yards from your bedroom .
meals were really recommended beer and wine recommended .
2 mins walk from nightlife and shops
tea and coffee available in room but no milk due to heat ,
a smaller coffee machine that adds milk from pods would be a better.
we have booked again and love this hotel

Room tip: lower floors have noise but ideal for 1 night break

Thank your for your great review! I am sorry to hear about the noise due to the bar, we do try our hardest to keep noise to a minimum and I will speak to staff to make sure they are continuing to adhere to this. We do provide flasks of fresh milk upon check in which then are removed the next day and are advised to come to reception if you would them replenished. We look forward to welcoming you back. Kind regards

I haven't marked this hotel down because of a few failings as I just loved it. One can just fall into the top rate shops nearby & the sites/sights are also easily within reach, as are the restaurants (including 'Betty's'). Choosing to eat at the hotel - lunch, dinner or a light supper - is no hardship, whilst breakfast is excellent!
The staff I met were so friendly & helpful & chatty with me - much appreciated since I was on my own.
The building itself has a really interesting history. (Not made enough of.)
I would have been pleased to receive a single occupancy reduction on the 5 star cost.
Dog friendly with amenities offered in the front courtyard.
Front courtyard is buzzing.
Whilst the inner courtyard rooms are noisy at times, eye shades, earplugs & shutters are provided & do the trick - adding to the quirkiness!

Room tip: Rooms adjoining the inner courtyard are noisy with clients sitting out there being entertained between about 2 and 10pm.

I recantly booked a 2 night mid week break for my Husband 60th birthday at the Judges lodge & we were not disapionted. The staff were very friendly & helpful, our evening meal was excellent as was the breakfast. The room we were given was beautifully decorated & WOW the bed was so big & extermaly comfortable. we had never stayed at this Hotel before but will deff visit again.
An added bonus is the Hotel is situated quite central to the centre of york & approx 10 mins walk from the railway station, so no car needed.

This hotel is wonderfully located near the old centre of the City within walking distance of many of the sites.

My wife, son and I stayed in The Judges Lodgings for a couple of nights mid-week. We had a wonderful stay. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and assist us. The rooms were well laid out with period furniture and the beds were very comfortable; the bathroom is very modern. I would highly recommend the double room at the rear named the "The Doctor's Office".
