Attended a family wedding in mid February, beautiful, immaculate venue with great staff, food and an amazing personal service. Rooms were perfect, our family room was very comfortable. Would recommend to anyone planning a wedding venue where the venue will be exclusive and staffs providing every need.

My wife and I got married at Rowton Castle on 21/02/2014 and in the review we left at the time, we said we hoped to be able return for our anniversary. Luckily we got to do just that!

My husband and I got married here on the 30th January 2015. The castle is of course beautiful but it was staff who made the day perfect. Gareth and Keith personally looked after every little detail and made the day flow smoothly. Nothing was too much trouble. Having exclusivity of the venue was great and with a lot of young... More

I loved it here. We came for a wedding with our little 10 month old boy. Although we had to walk up the stairs to the top of the castle (there are no lifts which is understandable in a castle) it was well worth it. We'd booked a twin room as it was the only one available but they must... More

Went to a wonderful wedding on Jan 29th, in a beautiful castle, with great professional service, lovely food and super ambience. Therefore I feel a little bit mean about complaining about my room (No 10), but I think I got the archetypal single room. It was spotless, with a nice en-suite, but it was tiny!, it was in the rooftops,... More

Stayed over the weekend of 23/24/25 January for my sister's wedding. The hotel is lovely, stunning inside and out. It is a perfect venue for a wedding - look, feel and how the wedding party are treated. Friday night, we ate in the lounge - great menu. Not quick, but everything is cooked to order.
