I got married here on the 27th September 2014. I can honestly say from start to finish my day was perfect. The staff were completely amazing and made sure everything went smoothly. Special thanks to Alex who was brilliant. We had an indoor ceremony and I was worried that the tables for the wedding breakfast would be set exactly how... More

We have just attended a wedding and couldn't praise the staff highly enough. They really make you feel welcome and nothing seems too much trouble. Marvellous food too. The castle is set in beautifully cared for gardens and inside and out show a high level of maintenance. An experience not to be missed and never forgotten.

My husband booked for a one night stay to celebrate my birthday. Grounds are stunning and the drive up to the glorious building took my breath away. The room was immaculate and had everything we needed. Bed was the most comfortable I have slept in apart from my own ! Lovely quiet location with easy access to Shrewsbury Town Centre.... More

We, also, have just enjoyed the most wonderfully relaxing mid-week break soaking up the sheer bliss of the pampering hospitality afforded by the super-efficient staff of the historic Rowton Castle who made it all look so deceptively effortless. Our two night stay in a luxurious bedroom with a beautifully clean, capacious en-suite equipped with high quality toiletries and overlooking carefully... More

A marvellous hotel contained within a beautifully restored 'small' castle with plenty of character, situated in an ideal setting with manicured lawns and flower beds. Without exception, all the members of staff we met were very friendly, obliging and helpful -in a word they were highly professional and a credit to the owners of this establishment. The breakfasts and dinners... More
