“excellent hotel for weekend treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

what a find - an excellent bistro hotel in the centre of York.

When we arrived the staff met and showed us to our room, they were all bright and cheeerful and couldnt do enought for us. They helped us book a rastaurant in York for the evening meal

The rooms were very large and had excellent facilities, breakfast was served in a very nice room and the food was of excellent quality. Would use this hotel again .Mrs Mason Room 1

Pros: The Hotel is central and spacious. Architecture buffs will love the classical decor - a reminder of York's Vanbrugh days. Surviving features have been carefully retained and thankfully the owners have resisted any temptation to introduce faux 18thc design with the result that the public rooms are comfortable, tasteful and restful on the eye. The overmantel in the breakfast room is a treat. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and refined. The staff could not have been more helpful and are a significant asset.
Cons: Minor stuff really. My room looked down on a skip but I do know that restoration work had just finished on the Cellar Bar and restaurant. Continental breakfast could have done with a a few select cheeses. Would warn the disabled or those with walking difficulties that there are outside stairs to be negotiated. Otherwise a treat.

Room Tip: Ask for the Winteringham Suite (Room 11)

It is perfectly placed for getting round the city, the staff were very helpful and the room comfortable with a massive bed, 2 TVs. Down side TV1 didn't work and needed manager intervention. No bathrobes in room ,no access from hotel to bar and we could not put drinks from bar on the room. Given it's location and price these downs outweighted the positives.

I booked this hotel through a Living Social deal so I didn't pay anything near the rack rate, I would stay again but would definitely not pay over £90 per night.
The location is excellent and the standard of accommodation very high.
Complimentary roses & champagne (Valentines weekend) were a really nice surprise.

We booked a number of rooms in February, for a family event. When we were told, in January, the Cellar Bar may be closed during our visi,t we decided to cancel. Our deposit has not been refunded, and we were not told, at any time, despite a number of emails, that the hotel went into Administration in January! We only found out through the Internet. The Administrators, Begbies, have said that deposits paid before 6th January cannot be refunded!

JudgesGeneralManager, General Manager at The Judges Lodging, responded to this review, 18 February 2012
Whilst it is true that the hotel is in Administration, every effort has been made to resolve this situation. An offer was made from the hotel to proceed with the booking whereby the deposit would have been honoured. However, no response was received from the client. In the interests of the business the decision was then taken to release the booking and place the hotel back for general sale in the market place.
