We spent a bit extra and enjoyed a superior bedroom with fabulous views over the rooftops to York Minster, less than 300m away. Room 2 was on the 1st floor (up 31 stairs) but considering the 'ground floor' is 17 stairs above ground level (where the breakfast room and cellar bar are situated) you need to be fit to enjoy...

Really enjoyed our two day stay in this most welcoming, quirky, small hotel. Room very clean and well appointed with an extremely comfy bed and sumptuous towels!! Both breakfast and evening meals varied and most tasty. Staff were super! Would definitely return. About a ten minute walk from York station and very central for shops and tourist York.

This is a great place if you are looking for somewhere elegant to eat, meet and chat with friends or just enjoy a quiet drink. York is full of chain style restaurants and pubs so this place is quite unique. No loud music or brash over familiar service, just a beautiful historic building, tastefully decorated serving good food and a...

Booked 1 night here as a birthday surprise for my partner. It is amazing - we had one of the rooms at the back overlooking a courtyard. Though small it was very well laid out with immaculate furnishings. Breakfast was plentiful and served in the garden bar downstairs.

We had a wonderful weekend and the Judges Lodging. Our room was lovely, the bed comfortable and we loved the whirlpool bath. The only thing I would say is that due to the single pane windows, we could hear some street noise on our first night, however, we did locate a little bag in our wardrobe that contained sleep masks...
