The Judge’s Lodging Inn York Review

The Judge’s Lodging Inn York Review: February 2020

Think relaxed luxury, charm and elegance, the Judge’s Lodging located in an enviable postcode in the centre of York, in north-east England, perfectly situated in the main hub for easy access to all the city’s main attractions.

A gorgeous Grade I listed building, a Georgian townhouse steeped in charm and history, whereby the building’s origins date back to 1710 when it was built as a private residence.

Eventually, after the passing of the owner, the building became the residence of judges attending the Assize court sessions and remained so until around 1976.

The Judges adorn the walls and at Christmas things are rather grand with the addition of a gorgeously decorated Christmas tree.

This stunning residence has a restaurant, two bars, along with some quirky fixtures and fittings providing some super special character rooms.

Feature rooms at the Judge’s Lodging always have that extra character and detail.

The Clifton

The Clifton was a super sensational cosy classy room rich in detail and historic charm.  Décor a mix of subtle neutral shades, quality furnishings and fine fabrics.

Immediately, walking into a lovely lounge, well appointed, with some super scrummy shortbread, water, tea, coffee and also fresh milk.

The beautiful bedroom, the perfect place to rest your head after a busy day and evening in York city.

With a writing desk, wardrobe, standalone full-length mirror and a super sung bed with a touch of chic added with the fab vintage telephone.

  2. The Judges Lodging Inn looks like such an interesting idea for a place to stay. I love how all the rooms are different. The grounds remind me of some of the older buildings you find in Boston or Philadelphia in the historic areas. Breakfast looks delicious and the rooms all look very clean and well kept up.
