We attended the castle for the murder meal. First time at the castle and it is quite a spectacular old castle. The evening was held in a nicely decorated room. There were about 6/7 long tables each with 22 people on. The tables seemed quite cramped for space with staff at times unable to walk between the tables. We were...

Was really looking forward to staying here for the one night. One night never enough to fully enjoy a hotel but gives a good idea if would enjoy a longer stay. We stayed in a castle double, room 63. Up some winding turret staircase, initially quite daunting after breaking my leg last February. However no problem, the room was lovely...

We visited Lumley Castle for our 20th wedding anniversary in December. This is the third time we have stayed at Lumley Castle and we love it! We stayed for one night and had a meal in the restaurant. Food was amazing and cooked to perfection. It always feels extra special in December as the whole castle is trimmed up really...

I stayed with my daughter for one night and had dinner in the restaurant. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome and our room was great although slightly small which could be an issue if you were staying longer. The staff in the bar were friendly and the waiter ( I think his name was Nathan)...

Staying in a 600 year old castle isn't something often available and you must accept a degree of quirkiness. This is a rambling establishment and depending upon which room you are allocated might require a long hike from the reception or to the restaurant. However, after a very efficient check in a porter was readily available to assist with our...

Not sure of what was so wonderful about Chester le Street in Durham that someone went to the trouble of building a castle but I'm sure if I'd read some of the leaflets or asked one of the tunic wearing staff, they would have enlightened me. Full of authentic castle stuff and twisty corridors, it's just so not premier Inn...

Got a late booking here for a Sunday night. Found the reception hidden round the side. Being a proper castle all the door ways are defended and not suitable for the usual large lobby. Good welcome and sent me off with a porter to my room. My sense of direction is good but I was soon lost. With four sides...

Stopped here again and as usual had a great relaxing time. Our room was in the main hotel and was large with big en-suite. Was a bit worried with it being freezing outside that parts of the castle would be cold but not an issue at all. The bar area has a couple of great open fires and comfy chairs...

What a fabulous place. You feel as though you are staying with friends in their sumptuous castle. I sat in the library having a sandwich when I arrived and I was able to read the 1848 Encyclopedia Britannia beside a log fire. In the evening I had the signature dish of fillet steak which was the best and in the...
