Teasing Georgia is another good rich yellow rose which will also climb to 2 metres depending on how you prune it. Malvern Hills is a short climber with paler yellow roses.
Gertrude Jekyll has amazing perfume. I also have William Shakespeare, Sceptr'd Isle, Geoff Hamilton, Queen of Sweden, Tess of the D'Urbevilles, Falstaff, Crocus Rose, Generous Gardener (climber) and Benjamin Britten - all David Austin roses. I have Jaqueline Duprée on order and will probably order Harlow Carr too - all David Austin roses but I also have a Kiftsgate which is a huge rambler.
As I live in Belgium I get mine ready potted from a nursery in the Ardennes who delivers them to me at a local plant fair in May so I don't have to gamble on bare root roses surviving my winters.
I wouldn't buy roses from supermarkets - labelling, quality and disease resistance are generally poor. I'd rather pay more and get a good plant that does what it says on the label. Make sure you check out the planting and pruning advice on the DA website too to ensure success with your new roses.
