We did book this with ‘Living Social’ which included afternoon tea, overnight stay and breakfast for two. As someone who has been lucky enough to get some great deals for hotel stays, I always upgrade the room at an additional cost usually direct to the hotel. Having decided to upgrade, I asked for a ‘Feature room’ and was not disappointed.... More

The hotel is excellent. My family had booked the surprise for me. We were in the Sceptre Room (private dining) and it could not have been better. Right from afternoon tea to the feast we had in the Sceptre. Everything was special. Thanks to our waitress, whose name I can't remember, but she was Italian and charming. My husband and... More

Just returned from a lovely couple of nights in a castle room at Lumley. Staff very attentive, spotless room, food outstanding. The courtyard area has a few tables to sit and enjoy a drink on a sunny afternoon. Probably the only negative is that this is the only area to sit outside, OK if not too busy.

My wife and I stayed over in room 43 in the main Castle last Friday. Our stay included the Elizabethan banquet and breakfast in the morning. We arrived at 1530 hours and we were taken to our room with no fuss at reception. The room is quite small but it was extremely nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable,... More

My girl friend booked this hotel as a belated birthday present as I was working on the actual day. I had no preconceived ideas of the hotel at all. Well, its a proper castle, with a proper a ghost and it is so easy to get to. It is a proper castle, with a creepy story and a really great... More

I cannot rate Lumley Castle enough! We had the most fabulous day on 4th April 2015 for our wedding day! The rooms were faultless. The staff were amazing and our wedding co-ordinator June was kind, friendly and made our day the fairytale it was.
