Hospitality group, House of Daniel Thwaites, has reopened its York city centre hotel, The Judge’s Lodging after a refurbishment costing more than £500k.
The Grade-I listed hotel, which dates back to 1710, has seen its bedrooms, bars and dining rooms upgraded during a five-week closure in January.
Part of the House of Daniel Thwaites, which also includes York’s four-star Middletons Hotel, The Judge’s Lodgings’ newly upgraded bedrooms now boast bespoke furniture and luxury touches like spa baths. T
The dining areas feature smart new furnishings and a new restaurant menu has been introduced to reflect a high-end, more formal dining environment.
Downstairs, the cellar bar offers a gastro-pub experience with classic dishes.
Owner Daniel Thwaites PLC acquired the historic Georgian Townhouse in 2012 and re-opened the hotel in 2014 following a huge refurbishment.
This most recent work brings the total investment in The Judge’s Lodging to more than £4m.
Daniel Thwaites’ executive chairman, Rick Bailey commented: “The Judge’s Lodging is a wonderful property with a fascinating story that’s a real draw to people who want to come and see all that the building has to offer. Since 2012 we’ve invested millions of pounds into major upgrades to protect and conserve this historic property – it has been a huge success and this latest work will allow people to continue to enjoy it for years to come with a really high quality, rich customer experience.”
