Score from 296 reviews Very good
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.
Cleanliness They stole £50 off me Cobwebs Dust Broken shower Hair in beds Dirty surfaces Damp
The venue is nice.
We stayed in the annexe & its was a bit tired & needs some modernisation. I cant speak about the main building.
A good choice of food in bar area. Staff very helpful.
Very romantic setting lovely grounds surrounding hotel would definatley return sometime soon
A real experience - sleeping in a castle
Nothing the hotel could change but it is really isolated
The whole experience
Room a little small
It was our 6 year wedding Aniversary and I found this place by accident. I used to work at another hotel that is also a castle so I knew what kind of place it could have been. We weren't disappointed it was beautiful from the outside and had lovely grounds which we had a wander round. We were in a castle double number 31 which was at the very top of the hotel. Fine if you are at the peak of physical fitness but a struggle if your not especially if your in heels. There is no lift but this is stated on the website for all to see. The room it's self was lovely and modern with all amenities needed (tea,coffee, tv and wifi) and a good view. The bathroom on the other hand was very clean but tiny! It had a loo, shower and sink but you couldn't swing a cat (not that I had one) The food in the restaurant was top quality and very well priced I've stayed at some 5* hotels around the country and out and some of them didn't come close. Friendly staff and quiet surrounds made for a perfect Aniversary for me and my wife. I would deffinetly go again.
Bathroom door didn't shut. Room was dirty - long, black, curly hair everywhere. Behind bathroom door had not been cleaned or swept. Bathroom in very poor state of repair. Bath chipped, generally needs a coat of paint and silicone replacing.
Comfortable accommodation in castle room, fine breakfast, superb steak dinner in bar and helpful staff. Close to Darlington, Walworth Castle is an historic place with real wow factor - the absolute antithesis of modern 'box' hotels. A great find.
well sistuated with in easy reach of places to visit ie high force water fall, lake district and north yorkshire moores
The location was excellent. Lovely building with peaceful grounds. The staff could not have been more helpful and food was excellent. Our room was large and spacious with lovely views of the grounds.
Staff were very polite and helpful.
We stayed in the West Wing. The room was very very small , very poorly decorated, the shower was of very low power and not fixed to the wall properly so that when you adjusted the height it all fell off the wall (I reported this) there are no real wardrobe facilities or means of making a drink . Travel Lodge rooms are almost half the price and three times the value for money. Window frames in the building were rotten or badly in need of paint, I would not recommend this hotel to anyone, what a shame we had so looked forward to our first trip away together.
Everything but the room
Cheap mattress on sloping slatted base, creaked at every turn. Loo in tiny space between wall and shower screen,. No shower cap, No light above dressing table. Cheap decor
Location and historic beauty of premises
I advised the hotel prior to visit i was disabled but the accomodation i was given was totally unsuitable due to steps in bedroom and also in corridor to bedroom, lack of handrail supports in bathrooms and the car park was gravelled so not the best for those with limited mobility. I would have rather been told when i rang hotel that it wouldnt be suitable for me.
The building was just awesome
Friendly and courteous staff, very helpful.
