Just spent 3 nights at Judges Lodgings. Our room was very clean and comfortable and all staff were very friendly and helpful. Great breakfast and we ate in the restaurant twice. Food was exceptional. The decor throughout is excellent with some great attention to detail. Highly recommended for a comfortable stay where everything is in walking distance.

Stayed at Judges Lodgings for two nights over weekend of 4 March. On arrival on a very damp day was greeted by courteous staff, and later shown to our room. The room was on the top floor no 6 overlooking York Minster and was spacious and very traditional looking. As York was really busy we decided to eat at the...

cold off the first train of the day, we headed for the lodgings which we has spied on our last visit to York. Opposite Rustique restaurant on Lendal. We opted for the full English, which entitled you to the continental offering as well. Marinated apricots and prunes were a surprise ,they were infused with a clove sugar syrup (nice touch)....

How pleasant to visit a city central setting for families to eat and take dogs with you. They treated the dogs well and even brought a water bowl for Rosie our black Labrador who always keeps me company in the radio studio that I present from. She loves people (not for lunch!). She is a quiet 4 year old...come on...

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...
