A review is better late than never, right?
A couple of months ago me and my boyfriend went on a little overnight trip to York, which you can find out more about here. We stayed in a wonderfully quirky little hotel that was tucked away down a little path, right in the heart of the city. It's really the perfect location. Just a stones throw away from the hustle and bustle of city life, the shops and the restaurants, but set far enough back that you can easily escape and have a very peaceful nights sleep.
Judges Court Hotel is a 4 star, boutique hotel set in a little courtyard hidden between shops in the heart of York's city centre. If you didn't know it was there, you'd barely even notice it. In fact, I almost walked past the little path that leads to it's front doors! When we arrived we were greeted by the loveliest receptionist who gave us all the relevant information, showed us to the room and talked us through some of the facilities that came with the room. I was really excited, as I've never really stayed in a proper English hotel before, and I really can't fault this stay in any way!
The room was absolutely beautiful. From the crisp bedding to the quirky imagery on the wall. It was all stunning! The mix of modern furniture and vintage touches, such as the beautiful old fire place, gave it a really lovely feel. The room was spacious, the bed was comfy and there was plenty of light to do my makeup in the morning! Hidden in one of the cupboards was a well stocked mini bar along with complimentary hot drinks and a nespresso machine for the coffee lovers out there. Oh, and of course there was free wifi, making it the perfect hotel for a business stay or a few nights away.
The beautiful room and modernly fitted bathroom made it really easy to get ready in the morning. Plenty of space, lots of natural lighting and a good selection of mirrors. The stay was absolutely wonderful and it's definitely a hotel I would visit again. We were ever given a complimentary late checkout which was fab if you're like me and always take longer than you think to get ready! Whoops!
The history of the hotel is really fascinating too and we were talking to a member of staff about it for a while before we left, but you can find out more about it here.
