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.
Room over kitchens, smells, noise of bottles being recycled and the constant sound of the kitchens extractor unit. The food was good but had to take long journeys around the castle to reach the trestuarants, particularly for breakfast - as we were booking out at reception waiters were passing us with other peoples kippers!
Most of the staff were very good. Room was a reasonable size with good en-suite facilities.
Room was obviously near the kitchen and so the room smelt of cooking morning and night. For a two day stay we did not have a working TV (World cup matches missed!) and we were promised after the first night that it would be fixed for the second night - it wasn't! When we brought this up on the second night we were told "there is a TV room in the hotel". (Apparently there was no working TV in anyone's room for those two nights which for such a hotel I think is very poor - how much longer had this gone on for or how much longer did it go on for after we left and worse it was not mentioned to us at check in). After walking 12 miles that day we just wanted to relax in our own room with the promised TV working!! Unfortunately, I have to say that we would not use this hotel again.
friendly approachable staff. Very good services Lovely room Lovely surroundings overall a brilliant stay.
room to small .unable to wash hair in shower as it was to small no tea/coffee facility did not feel value for money stayed following night at premier inn half the price bigger room and bathroom able to use both shower amd toilet with ease will not be returning to walworth castle.
Castle in nice setting
Breakfast was poor value for money. The price was not well advertised. For £12.95 I would expect a lot more. Poorly stocked cold items.
Food was great, grounds are beautiful
No lift which made it difficult with small child in pushchair
Pretty castle tho wasn't staying in it. Lovely location tho our stay was determined by a friend's wedding.
Rang the castle prior to the stay and staff attitude was appalling. Why the lady who was answering my questions was in the hospitality industry I will never know!! They were unhelpful, to say the least! (I found her being equally unhelpful to an elderly gentleman on my arrival too!)
Beautiful setting, friendly staff. Good breakfast.
Room interior somewhat dated and in need of modernisation.
Beautiful surrounding area and grounds, very friendly staff and the food was super 10 out of 10 for the food!
Was disappointed with the quality of the room, ours was a 'quiet' room located right at the top of the hotel. Having requested to be in the 'castle' part of the hotel we expected the rooms to be furnished in a castle style. Whilst the bed was comfortable none of the furniture matched and the en-suite was so small my Partner had to reverse into it to go to the loo!
Beautiful location...friendly helpful staff..
Location, Friendly Staff tried to accommodate request to change room. Food was good
When booking photo use for room was misleading and was not correct room. Photo used was of Four poster studio room , not standard Four poster room Initial room hade no bath as requested, had to change rooms which was on next floor up, which was an issue as my wife is disabled
