A Birthday Treat

What a hidden treasure this hotel really is! Tucked away down a little ginnel, this really is the perfect base for a York exploration. Greeted with the warmest of welcomes, we were told that we’d been upgraded to a luxury room as it was my partners birthday, a really lovely gesture which was very much appreciated. We stayed in Room 11 and it was stunning…..bespoke,individual and full of gorgeous features. The room and bathroom was absolutely spotless, the toiletries were luxurious and the bed and bedding really comfortable. The whole experience was amazing and I can’t speak highly enough about the hotel and its friendly, accommodating staff. We will definitely be returning. 2015

5 star

Very clean hotel in the centre of York. The hotel is located up a small ally way off the Main Street. Staff are more than helpful and the rooms are 10 out of 10 with modern facilities in an old hotel. Will be booking again. The hotel can arrange parking if you contact them. Credit to the owners.

Amazing Stay! 18th April 2015

We stayed for two nights on a midweek break and were thoroughly impressed from the moment we stepped through the front door. The staff were friendly and made us feel welcome from the start. The location is just fantastic and was a stones throw away from shop, restaurants, bars and tourist attractions. When we return to York we won’t look at any other hotels. Amazing stay! 10/10

“Fantastic location, setting and service.”

We only stayed for one night. First dealing with a lady on the phone when we were lost who just couldn’t offer us enough help. This attitude was conveyed by all staff throughout. Things that stood out from other hotel experiences were the amazing wet room shower found at the end of its own little corridor. Then it was the smart tv, and finally the bed. My partner almost slept completely through checkout time at 11. I wish I could take it home. I would recommend this hotel unreservedly. Oli15

“Great location”

The hotel was in a superb location. Lovely friendly staff. Very clean and well presented rooms. Breakfast in bed is a nice touch but maybe a bit steep at £10pp! Other than that, fantastic hotel and will definitely be returning the next time I visit York! AnthonyP

“Beautiful and perfect!!”

We had a magical stay in the luxurious and slightly surreal room 9. We had a four poster bed, with the most amazing mattress. We spent as much time in the top notch shower as we did sleeping. The whole hotel ouzed style, imagination and class. The greeting was warm, helpful and friendly and the owner so accommodating. Recognising huge potential in a beautiful building in the perfect and central location. Can’t wait to revisit – we will never stay anywhere else in York. LauraLincolnTaylor

“Gorgeous hotel, excellent location ”

Stayed for 2 nights in November in room number 4. The location of the hotel is spot on, right in the centre of York. We used ‘just park’ and found a car park within a 5 minute walk of the hotel which was great. The staff at the hotel are extremely friendly and we had a lovely warm welcome. The hotel is new, so everything was impeccable. The design and layout of the hotel is gorgeous, beautiful decor. Our room was lovely, really quirky with a clean and modern bathroom. Would definitely stay again, great stay in York, hotel really made it! Charl0tte_1992

“First class”

brilliant central location fantastic renovation of a historic building, quirky five star rooms everything you could require for a superb stay in the middle of York .I would book now for next year as this hotel once discovered will be booked up for months in advance.
WELL DONE Tigerglenn


A hidden gem of a boutique hotel. My partner and I enjoyed a short break in York this week and were pleasantly surprised to find such an unusually different style of hotel , sympathetically restored combining authenticity with decadent indulgence. The fixtures and fittings were of the highest standard. Minimalistic with perhaps a more masculine look in keeping with the properties original useage . Superb attention to detail and with very accommodating owners who went out of their way to please the most discerning of guests!!!!!! We’ll be back!!!! Deanna M

“I loved the room, will be requesting the same next time I visit”

We found this hotel by accident and we are so glad we did, it’s in a courtyard at the back of the Main Street in York, the room was beautiful (room 1) I will definitely be recommending you to family and friends, there is so much to do in the city, we should have booked the stay for longer, thank you so much, nice touch with the resident dog too 🙂 Katie R

“Superb hotel and staff”

What can i say… amazing location, fantastic staff and stunning decor….
The staff couldn’t do enough for u…so helpful…. location right in the heart…. within walking distance of everything. Decor was very modern …
Always wanting to improve theirfab hotel, we were asked on checking out if they needed to improve on any area of the hotel etc… but there was nothing i could think of. They thought of everything. We were in room 12… at the very top of the hotel… very quirky staircase to our room.
We would deffo go back to this hotel without hesitation. Julie & Peter

“Excellent Hotel full of Character”

Just stayed at the newly opened Judges Inn in York and found the hotel wonderful, they have looked to maintain the original character of the city and have completely succeeded. We found the hotel staff warm and friendly and nothing was to much trouble for them.
The Hotel itself is off Coney Street opposite the Monsoon shop in the heart of the city and possibly a little difficult to find but well worth it.
I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to stay in York. ColinM

“Terrific hotel, wonderful staff, great location”

What a gem! Beautiful pared-back designer room decor. Reception more cosily furnished with old gilded royal coats of arms. Everything provided for your comfort (Cowshed toiletries, Nespresso machine – these people have the same priorities as me…). Comfy bed. Staff were exceptional – charming and genuinely wanting to help make your stay special. Great location in the centre of town, but in a quiet little oasis of a courtyard – you would never know you were yards away from busy streets. Will definitely go back there! Kate888

“Great Hotel”

We arrived at Judges Court on the afternoon of 9th Nov 2014. Unusual location as the entrance is a gated off Ali way up the side of Holland & Barrett. This takes you into a small court yard & Judges Court is right in front of you. Beautiful building & good quality interior decor- We stayed in the basement Room No.2 – Lovely room with a very comfortable double bed. Well stocked mini bar if you require & Tea/Coffee making facility. The shower we loved & provided with “Cowshed” Toiletries which are georgous. We did not realise that this hotel was newly opened so everything is brand new. They do not provide breakfast but do offer a delivered breakfast service. We did not use this as so many places to eat in York so you can try something different each day. Staff were very friendly & helpful, we also met the owner who happily showed us around this beautiful property. We stayed for two nights and staying here certainly made our trip to York special. Totally Recomend. LesleyC

Amazing visit to Judges Court

Lucky enough to have a sneak preview of the hotel and all its wonderful features.  The hotel is coming together so quickly and is already looking stunning.  Can’t wait to stay with you.  The decor and contemporary design exudes luxury.  Loved the bespoke cocktails, Nespresso machines and Roberts radios!  Uber special design features in the rooms making it so cool!

Good Luck to you all at Judges Court

We just wanted to say thank you and good luck to you all at Judges Court.  What a fantastic location and superb building right in the centre of York.  You have done a wonderful job restoring the building into a very fine hotel.  We hope the opening goes well and look forward to our stay with you in November.
