Hi Suzanne/Emma/Paul/Kim & Team
A month on from the big day, we just wanted to get back in touch to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Back in January, when we started looking for a suitable venue (no more than 1 hours drive from where an elderly relative lives, due to her inability to travel too far), we didn’t really know where to start or how to narrow down to somewhere we thought would accommodate our needs but also feel luxuriously comfortable.
After researching various online review and wedding websites, we narrowed down to 3 hotels (one in Malton, one in Northallerton and yourselves) and flew to the UK.
There were 3 very important things for us -
1. The Hotel would be luxurious without being stuffy
2. The food would be of a high quality
3. There would be a least one accessible room
With this in mind, we visited the 3 hotels but there was another element that wasn’t on the above list that actually turned out to be one of the top reasons to make a choice – and that was the staff we met and their attitude.
We can safely say that Judges Hotel staff (Suzanne/Kim initially), from the moment we arrived welcomed us with open arms and in a genuinely friendly way. We had encountered professionalism in the other hotels but this went well beyond that to the point of making us feel truly comfortable but also trusting of yourselves hosting our wedding.
Over the 8 months from booking Judges to the big day, we had many many queries/questions for Suzanne but at all times, Suzanne was professional and friendly and always answered our questions promptly and even made some great suggestions which we took on board.
Prior to booking Judges, we knew we would have to rely on the hotel a little more than may be normal, as we live abroad. We needn’t have had any worries on this front as the coordination by Suzanne was second to none.
Then when the big day arrived, everything went seamlessly.
There was always someone on hand making sure everything went to plan (just wanted to call out Emma and Paul particularly).
How you guys managed to corral our unruly bunch, I don’t know!
Everything from the rooms, the bar man in the main hotel (really nice and genuine guy), the reception staff, the food, the function staff were fantastic.
All of our guests commented on how beautiful the hotel was and how the day went brilliantly.
Oh, and thanks for organizing such amazing weather on the day Smile. We couldn’t believe our luck!!
Finally, we would definitely recommend your Hotel to others for weddings and look forward to popping back at some stage when we are in the UK again.

Room Tip: Room 8 is beautiful!!

Excellent friendly staff, nothing was too much trouble. Very nice bedroom overlooking the extensive grounds. Well appointed bathroom with White Company toiletries. Dinner and breakfast food of Very high quality. It would have been nice to have complimentary water in the bedroom. We also felt that the bar service was disappointing particularly the glasses used to serve our gin and tonics. Also apparently after 6pm they serve doubles. They don't tell you this, which I think is misleading. Personally I would prefer to be asked my preference.

Great first stay here whilst working nearby.

Arrived at around 9pm had a great welcome from friendly receptionist. Also enjoyed a drink in the lovely lounge area.

Bedroom was well appointed, bathrobes, good desk area to work, comfy armchairs, games, fresh cookies and some sherry!

The bathroom was also excellent nice large bath and lovely toiletries.

I had a four poster bed and it was so comfortable! I slept for hours!

And finally breakfast...absolutely fantastic, lovely setting and great choice along with fantastic service.

Would not hesitate to go back, in fact I can’t wait to!

Stayed: September 2017, travelled on business

It is such a pleasure to return to The Judges. After driving through a long avenue of trees you come to the elegant, historic hotel. Smiling, friendly staff immediately help with luggage and welcome you. The side lights are on in advance when you enter the comfortable colourful room, a decanter of sherry, a bowl of fruit, and fresh milk in the fridge all add to the feeling of pleasure at ones arrival. The views from the windows of the garden facing rooms is one of lawns, well established trees and bushes, and squirrels and rabbits when there is quiet, add to the feeling of being in another world. No wonder that this hotel has just been named the Country house hotel of 2018 by the guide. The Service, Value and location are excellent.

Room Tip: Best views are for rooms facing the gardens

Wanted a hotel in Yarm area whilst visiting friends in the area. Chose this one, and was very glad we did.
The room was very large and comfortable, with excellent amenities. Large comfortable bed, bottle of Cava on arrival, small decanter of sherry for a night cap, a bowl of fruit and the usual goodies in the bathroom. The bathroom had his & her basins. The staff were very attentive, and the young lady who greeted us, insisted on carrying our case in for us, and showed us to the room.
To our surprise the sherry I mentioned was replenished for our 2nd evening.
Breakfast was a joy, only the starters were buffet style, the waiting staff took our order, for the cooked meal (Plenty of choice), brought tea and coffee and toast, and then our choice of breakfast when we were ready.

All in all our stay was without fault, other than we were unable to test the evening meals, as e were committed to seeing friends we had not seen for a long time, and they had organised other things for us. I have vowed that next time, we will try the evening meal there.

Room Tip: Book direct and ask for the luxury room
