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.

Great B&B, the breakfast is good, the rooms are clean and the owners are really cool. Quality/price is perfect! I recommend this B&B! I've been in a double room on the 3rd floor, very charming but a little bit too warm in summer.

Stayed here during the Itunes Festival last September, only spent one night and it was more than adequate for the purpose of our stay and price we paid. The hotel is in a great location, around twenty minutes walk from Camden town centre. It also offers (limited) free parking on site, which is a rarity in the area! Not a... More

This was a really lovely little bed and breakfast that my friend and I stayed at during our recent visit to London. We stayed for eight nights on the top floor in room 10, which had a double bed, plenty of storage, a loveseat, a TV, a mini fridge, and a table equipped with all the fixings for tea and... More

We have been here for 4 nights and had a great time. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are tidy and clean but would need some maintenance which is already planned according to owner. We had no issue with the shared bathroom, everything was very clean. The breakfast is amazing, you can choose between continental breakfast, french... More

This place is tired and dingy and located in a dirty and unkempt area. The lady owner is very pleasant and the beds clean but otherwise it leaves a lot to be desired. There is no excuse for holes in ceilings or dreary stairways. Breakfast is fine but served in a grubby bar. There was a barbecue with ridiculously loud... More
