This was a birthday treat for my husband and we are such big fans of Grand Designs. Definitely worth booking well in advance as not surprisingly it is always busy. The attention to detail and everything about the hotel is fantastic. We stayed in the Chapel Room and it was beautiful. Karen and Francis have done an amazing job on...

This was a surprise birthday weekend from our children, so we are probably the only people to have stayed at Peel Castle never to have watched Grand Designs! It is certainly an amazing place - it has the real wow factor. We stayed for 2 nights in the Square Bedroom, complete with log fire, four poster bed, champagne, homemade shortbread...

We've been trying to get in to this place for years, but for some reason it has always been booked up. It was a great surprise to find some spare dates around my birthday, which as it happened coincided with getting married, so it was seemed like a good opportunity to start the honeymoon there. And we are so glad...

Both Grand Designs and castles are favourites of ours so just to stay there was special,but the added touches made it a fantastic stay,we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. Peel is such high quality but at the same time we felt very comfortable. Karen and Francis are lovely hosts.

I booked 2 nights in the Square Bedroom nearly 2 years ago (wanted last year, but full), as a surprise for my wife to coincide with our wedding anniversary. We loved it! I even managed to keep it a secret and the look on my wife's face when she saw it, after coming down the drive through an avenue of...

Yes, it was that episode of Grand Designs which led us to make a booking at Peel Castle but it still did not prepare us for how fabulous our stay would be. Great hospitality, quality all the way and a perfect experience. Karen was wonderful - we must have asked questions that she gets all the time from people staying...

I love boutique hotels and I love castles. I saw this on Grand Designs and booked the Old Room. I had to reserve almost 4 months out to get the exact room that I wanted, but it was well worth the wait. My sat nav had a bit of trouble finding it, but a nice neighbor guided me the last...

What a joy to stay amid all this beauty. We stayed for one night, just not enough time for the beauty of the Peel Castle and the gorgeous location. And what wonderful hosts who provided every comfort. I agree with the review that said "best hotel stay ever".

We've just returned from an absolutely fantastic stay at Hellifield Peel - a perfect place to spend a special weekend! Karen and Francis were wonderfully welcoming hosts and even allowed us a peek in the other rooms before their guests arrived! We'd been so excited to visit ever since we watched all they had been through on Grand Designs to...
