Magical Wedding
A massive thank you to Judges for the most amazing wedding reception we could have ever dreamt of, every little detail was so thoughtfully attended to, it was a truly magical night! Everything went so well, beautiful hotel, great staff, fabulous DJ, and Suzanne and Kim made sure everything was taken care of from the first enquiry to the end of the night, our guests all commented on how wonderful the night was and the food was amazing! A big thank you to you all for making our evening one that we will never forget.

Son's Wedding
Wow what a place - just the spot for a wedding. The whole experience went very well. The staff took control where they had to and left the rest of us to have a good time. The accommodation was excellent, the Bride and Groom (and guests) wanted for nothing. I would thoroughly recommend but doesn't come cheap but then try and a find a good venue, good food and good accommodation that does?

Thank you, the Grooms Dad

Fantastic Wedding Day
My wife and I had our wedding at Judges at the end of November and from the first moment we stepped through the door nothing was too much trouble.

The staff were attentive, caring and helpful throughout, which all added to a fantastic and stress-free wedding day.

Our guests haven't stopped complimenting the venue itself, the food, and the accommodation, and we all had a day that we will never forget. I could not recommend this hotel highly enough as a wedding venue, you truly will not be disappointed.

Thank you again!

We got married here in July and had the most perfect day. All the staff were wonderful and couldn't have done any more for us. The food is of a very high quality in the restaurant and also in the Courtyard Suite. The rooms are all individual and the grounds are absolutely beautiful. This is the perfect venue for any event big or small. Will be returning again hopefully soon.

A Perfect Wedding Venue
We decided to book Judges for our wedding as the venue and service they provide was rated very highly.

Suzanne and Kim consulted with us every step of the way and all the hotel staff were friendly and professional. Every detail is thought of and the grounds are beautifully groomed and idyllic for photographs. The food is amazing and the chef was very accommodating, all guests were very impressed by the presentation of the Courtyard Suite and it’s facilities.

We wish we could do it all again and we will certainly be returning for future events.

Thank you so much Judges, for making our wedding so perfect.

Winter Wedding 28 December 2018
Judges is a very unique Hotel that surpassed our expectation. The Court Yard suite was a fantastic setting for the Wedding Reception, the Wedding Breakfast and the Evening celebration. The Court Yard and Hotel were elegant and extremely breathtaking during the day complemented well by the internal decoration. The grounds were a fantastic setting for the pictures and at night you truly caught the magic of Christmas with the external decorations the lights and the Christmas tree.

The Staff: What amazing people you all are. The hard work and effort that is put in by all shows what a professional team you all are. Every request was met with enthusiasm and expertise.

Wedding Planner - you are a true professional. When we first met it was hard for us to picture how the wedding would look on the day, you seemed to be able to visualise the picture in our head which was then transformed by you and your team to a reality on the day.

You are a very talented person and one who has left us with everlasting memories. We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts , you truly made it a day to remember.

Wedding Reception: My first words when I walked in was ‘stunning ‘ it felt like we were in another world and not in a small part of a room that would be transformed several times that day.

Wedding Breakfast: We were so pleased with how the tables were decorated. The room and tables looked amazing, we couldn’t of asked for anything more. Our compliments to the Chef, the food was excellent and lots of it. One of our guests still talks about the amount of meat he got with his main meal.

The Evening Disco: We are not sure if our family dance will go viral on YouTube but we have to confess we really did enjoy it. The final part of the day was again made special by your lovely hardworking staff. The evening buffet was again fantastic and something different to the normal run of the mill buffet.

It is very difficult to express our thanks to you all, just saying ‘Thank you’ does not feel fitting for what was such a magical experience on the 28th December 2018.

We recently received our professional wedding photographs which we have to say are stunning. The pictures of the children in the grounds are little gems and still bring a tear to our eyes.

We would like to pass our sincere and truly heart felt thanks to all the staff at Judges who made our day one that we will remember forever.

Keep up the good work your reputation precedes you.

Our amazing wedding day at Judges Hotel, Kirklevington Hall on Monday 17 June 2019... oh my days, where to start?!... absolutely the most beautiful and perfect place to hold a wedding, made even more amazing with the best team ever. They are exemplary! Nothing was too much trouble, every little detail we could have hoped for was accommodated.. the food was totally superb, the way the day just flowed seamlessly with not a single drama... our photographer was in a serious state of over excitement with the venue, the setting, the weather - it was the most spectacular day ever. Thank you Team Judges - Tim, Suzanne, Kim and all your wonderful team, we have truly had the best day ever
