Dream Wedding Venue
What can I say about 'Judges' Well I was best man at one of my oldest friends wedding which was being held at this amazing venue. They do say the devil is in the detail and there was certainly no lack of details. My wife and I had the added pleasure of staying in one of hotels amazing bedrooms on the top floor. Every single member of staff were very warm, friendly, attentive and professional. The head chef and his kitchen brigade produced and presented a beautiful wedding meal that was far superior to many other venues I have attended. Judges is surrounded by beautiful gardens with mature trees and some cheeky squirrels. All in all I would highly recommend this stunning venue for any up and comming event you may have. A huge thank you to all of staff and management team for helping to make the special day special.

Amazing Wedding Venue
We chose Judges as our wedding venue and we can not fault them at all. It was so easy to arrange due to the help of Suzanne and Paul throughout the planning! The venue is stunning, the food amazing and the service was excellent and efficient considering there were about 100 days guests. All the rooms are comfortable and well sized. The breakfast was a perfect start to the wedding morning and we had a choice of eating in the conservatory or having room service. Everyone of our guest enjoyed their meal and there was not one complaint from them (they would definitely tell the truth!) Last week we took advantage of their ‘Date Night’ menu which is 3 courses, champagne on arrival, a bottle of wine at the table and coffee to finish for 2 people all for £50. This was absolutely amazing and would certainly make it a monthly outing at that price! You couldn’t go to a lesser quality chain restaurant and have 3 courses for that excluding the drinks!

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.

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.

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.

Open Evening, 5.30pm - 7.30pm
