Highly Recommended !!!!!!!!!!! Right from arrival the welcome was warm and friendly, Sharon was a treasure helping us up the stairs with our bags (my husband has walking difficulties) We arrived too late for lunch but were provided with an amazing array of salad and sandwiches to tide us over until dinner. The room was spotless and tastefully decorated, bed,...

Stayed at the Castle Hotel a few times recently. Always had a very nice sleep. Bedroom and bathroom seemed to have been recently refurbished and were immaculate. Good home cooked food too with a cosy atmosphere. Would recommend if you are needing to stay this way.

My wife made the booking for two nights on my behalf. I arrived round 9.30 pm and was told, by a lady in the bar, that there was no booking. Because of poor mobile phone reception (a general problem in this area!) it was not until the next morning that I was able to confirm that it WAS this "hotel"...

I don't see how you can review a hotel you have not stayed at. There was no member of staff in reception matching your description on duty when you say you tried to check in. I have reviewed our CCTV cameras covering the bar and reception and no one entered our hotel after 9pm. We waited up for you to...

House hunting in the area so stopped at the Castle Hotel for coffee/sandwiches. The entrance is stunning but disappointed on turning left into the bar area as this pretty shabby (ceiling interesting!) please would someone take notice that this could be a really fabulous place if only the bar was given some t.l.c. New carpet, tables/chairs/fabulous light fittings and, on...

Spent two nights at the Castle with my husband.. The rooms were nicely decorated and the shower in the bathroom was excellent. We had planned to eat out but after the wonderful food we had in the bar the first evening decided to eat again the second night. Great attention to detail and very helpful staff who go the extra...

I was told when I phoned in advance that the food was cooked fresh but when I ordered was told that the sauce was already made. I couldn't have that meal because of one of the ingredients. My husbands meal was poor and the roast potatoes were not proper roast. They tried to oblige with a different sauce for my...

Stayed here for 4 nights for business, and this hotel was a real treat. The rooms were wonderfully furnished and spotless, and the bulding had lots of character. All the staff were very friendly, and the food (both breakfast and evening meals) were delicious. Would definitely stay here again.

The Castle Hotel is located in the centre of town with a large car park at the rear, the one way system has you driving clockwise around the town, but eventually you arrive there. We received a good welcome from the staff, comfortable nights sleep and a great breakfast, rooms were clean and tidy and had everything we needed. Bar...

Driving back to Nottingham from Norwich decided to take a little detour to Downham Market hoping to find a nice pub for Sunday lunch. Just about to give up and leave when came across impressive looking Castle Hotel so thought would give it a go. We weren't disappointed! A very generous plate of roast beef and all the trimmings.

Great hotel, lovely and quirky, ancient and homely. Everything was spotless, and the staff could not have been more friendly. The breakfast was worth staying for on its own, you can't beat real free range eggs!
