A hotel with bucket loads of character as you would perhaps expect. Friendly helpful staff and the food was absolutely wonderful! I stayed in the main castle and had no problems with the WiFi. Plenty of hot water for a lovely soak in the bath. Easy to find and loads of parking. For me, perfect!
Peace and quiet b
The staff were great and the food outstanding
The food was lovely and the hotel was laid out like a castle and not too modernised. The bar staff where lovely and even when our son decided to play up was patient
Love the place and food but asked for a double bed and got a twin that's my only dislike
Room tired - bathroom inadequate - run a bath or basin but not both at the same time
The room was beautiful and the food was lovely too! Would definitely recommend - very relaxing, felt like we were the only people there!
I booked 3 nights, but stayed an extra night. I received a warm welcome from the reception staff and Tony in the bar, after a long journey from Spain to attend my friends Wedding. The Restaurant food was excellent and The Farmers bar food also. The wedding lunch and the decor was just lovely. Beautiful Castle and surrounding countryside. Durham castle is well worth the visit. Trains from Darlington are regular. I would recommend this Hotel especially for wedding receptions or just taking in the scenery. Great to have tea, coffee facilties in the room too. Cant wait for my next visit. Christina Kristiansen
We loved the room and the farmers bar.
My partner and I went for a weekend break. The staff were helpful, the room was clean and well looked after.
Not much to be honest. The bed was a little hard. But other then that it was a lovely stay
Gorgeous hotel. Stayed for one night..bed and breakfast. Lovely room in the castle..far bigger than expected with a 4 poster bed! Absolutely gorgeous views. Great pub downstairs with good choice of food and drink..and a cosy open fire for that extra comfy feel. Really happy customers..will definitely be returning in the future.
Lovely to see such a lovely building put to good use. The evening meal was exceptional good choice menu. The food was well presented and a high standard. Everything was clean and the staff helpful.
The room was a little tired but acceptable in such an old building. Could not find out how to connect to wifi no instructions for dimwits like me.
Dinner at the hotel restaurant was good, staff were friendly
Room a bit worn (paint peeling off ceiling)
Most was very good and we will stay again. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Wi-fi could have been stronger, we lost connection at times.
Excellent location & set in picturesque grounds.
Appreciate that the building is very characterful but felt it's in need of a makeover.
Location Bedroom Space
Food was expensive but was nice WiFi was slow Shower and bathroom a little tired
The staff one guy in particular called garath I think he was exellent and he could help enough.
The 1st room we were put in room 31 I think, it was like a cupboard .
we never saw hardly any guess even though it was full.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
Areas of the hotel were reserved and not accessible to guests (main lounge)
It was clean and comfortable enough. The staff were pleasant and polite but it wasn't in their power to give us what we wanted (that is, what we thought we'd booked!).
We booked a "A larger double room located in the main castle dating back to the 12th century. Most of the rooms have high ceilings and are all individually designed. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout." We got a bog standard twin on par with a travel lodge. Very basic. We expected a special nights stay in a Castle and were very disappointed with a twin room. We were advised to just push the beds together. How romantic.... To add insult to injury, friends at the wedding we were attending saw our room and told us that they'd been originally given it but had been moved after having complained.
food was good
the room very poor not up too standard small very unclean ........
I live in a castle and this was just like home from home but with heating! If you want to experience sleeping and living in a castle with out feeling cold this is as close as you will get...
Can not think of anything that I did not like
Everything. Was my sons wedding. Very professional. Beautiful rooms and food. Loved Nan the Owl who flew down the isle. People still taking about her :) prescious day thank you
We liked the castle very much, the ambiance, furnishings and setting were lovely. All the staff were very kind and friendly and nothing was too much trouble for us even though they had huge commitments with weddings, etc. We would certainly stay again.
This is no fault of the hotel but there was a wedding in progress so we didn't get much sleep that night as the music went on until quite late. We found the lighting in the room very poor. The hotel needs to look at this urgently. They should not be using low energy candle bulbs in all the light fittings, there are other low energy bulbs that would give a better light. In the dressing room a desk was provided but it was too dark to write anything there! A table lamp would help.
A real castle with the matching interior. a quiet country side setting, far away from every business stress.
