We stayed briefly, overnight and for dinner. The setting is magnificent and the rooms are pretty good - ours was furnished with dark wood furniture which was entirely in keeping with the style of the property. Public areas are a bit like stepping back into an Agatha Christie novel, but pretty well done. Staff were really helpful and put themselves... More

July 2014 was our second stay at Rowton Castle, our first was in 2010, and we can not wait for our third! It certainly will not be in four years time, in fact we are starting to plan our next Shropshire / Wales trip now. The castle is a treasure, the grounds have plenty to see and walk around and...

We stayed at the Rowton castle overnight on our way to a few days in Wales. When we arrived at this magnificent place we thought it would be very expensive and were pleasantly surprised of the cost (in fact it was cheaper then staying in a B&B in Aberdovey) and we experienced 1st class service. We could not fault anything... More

Dear Linbar1234 Thank you for your kind words.

However, I was delighted to see that we were able to accommodate you, take care of you, and meet... More

Attended a family wedding here and it was outstanding. The staff were very attentive without being intrusive and always ready to help. The venue itself though is what captured our hearts and the fact that the weather held off and we were able to hold the ceremony outside was what tipped it into perfection. If you don't manage to book... More

Dear Minatour3868 Thank you for your kind words regarding the family wedding you attended at Rowton Castle, and also your feedback for The Old Hand & Diamond.

We have just stayed at this Hotel for a wedding,it was a beautiful setting,wonderful food, and great service,the rooms were decorated in the style you would expect for a Castle. I would def recommend this if you are getting married or just for a break to travel the Shropshire countryside.
