Can't praise this place enough. Our room was so spacious and comfortable. All the staff were a credit to the place- friendly, and so helpful. Public rooms were stylish . Breakfast was of a high standard with plenty of choice for all. We will definitely visit this lovely hotel again.

The Judges Lodging is located very close to the train station and almost everything you'd want to see in York. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are well-equipped and comfortable. Meals were delicious, and the waitstaff were friendly and attentive; we ate breakfast there every morning and had dinner one night, without any complaints.

A historic and pleasant change to a pub for a Sunday lunch.Although in the bustle of York city centre a pleasant retreat. Great service and food and only paid a little extra - we will be back! Book in advance as it is popular and rightly so.

I stayed here for 2 nights with my partner and my partner's mum and we were all thoroughly impressed with the accommodation offered by the Judges Lodging. Our rooms were located at the back of the building, in a separate area from the main building. The rooms were beautifully decorated and there had been a lot of attention to detail....

The Judges Lodging is very centrally placed in York, only a few minutes walk from most of the major attractions, including the Minster and the city walls. We stayed for one night in a superior room which was very comfortable as well as attractively furnished. We were really pleased that we decided to eat in the restaurant which was beautifully...

I decided to try The Judges Lodging and can say that I wasn't disappointed but quite surprised. At first I had a drink in the bar followed by a meal upstairs in the restaurant. Both areas were tidy and well maintained. The whole place had a comfortable feel about it and the staff were all helpful and obliging. The meal...

Stayed one night and we were really impressed with the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, and the great location in the centre of York. We drove to the city and used the public open-air car park in Marygate (just near enough to carry bags from the car, there is a lovely area of gardens to walk through to the...

We stayed here for a weekend break to York. It was the sunniest and warmest weekend of the year so far, which obviously meant we had a wonderful time! The hotel was lovely.

We stayed here for a 1 night break. It is a lovely old building near to Lendal Bridge and the Minster. No parking on site but an easy walk from car parks or the train station.
