After a 232 mile walk over 7 days from Manchester to london , we needed a BnB to Finnish our trek into London . All I can say is what a welcoming site the castle bar was . Very friendly staff , excellent fish resturant and friendly bar staff. Would definately visit again . Gary Hobson

Basically there is nothing wrong with this place, except that the wifi is not working properly all the time, or that the showers did not work ultimately. Location is good, easy transportation to the city center or to Camden Town. What makes this place better than average though is the friendly staff and the tasty breakfast. Better value for money...

We decided to stay here for a period of 3 days and it was an excellent choice! The hosts were more than helpful and the rooms were very clean. We pretty much had everything we needed at a fantastic value, very close to the Caledonian tube station. Breakfast was lovely and included in the room prices. Good Wifi . Will... More

We stayed at the Castle Bar for 2 nights as one of my friends celebrated his Birthday there and had booked the bar for all birthday guests. Some of the rooms need some renovation , but, as it is quite cheap and breakfast is included , I hardly recommend that Hotel! You shoudl try out the associated fish restaurant right... More

I recently stayed here before moving into my new home. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and sheets very fresh. The breakfast was very good and served quickly with a range of choice. The bar area is tastefully decorated, great for breakfast and a pint during the evening. At the price paid, the castle b and b certainly meets... More

Hats off to The Castle Bar! Great B&B, very clean and worth every penny. Not too hard to find either which is the case with some place we tried to visit around that area....but then again, we can't follow a map to be honest. Lovely welcoming staff, always happy to help. Don't know what people are on about in some... More

This accommediation was completely unsatisfactory! From the minute I was shown to my room in the afternoon the 20/09/2014 to the minute I left on the morning of the 21/09/2014 I had a lot of issues with the room provided. Firstly, when I first arrived I noticed that there was a musky smell almost as if someone had been smoking... More

The Castle Bar is a property probably built in the 1920/30's. For the price paid, the rooms are clean and tidy and adequate for a short stay. A good choice of breakfasts are served with the full English with juice, coffee and toast just right. Beds are comfortable.
