A walk around the castle near sunset was magical. The hotel was lovely, the staff warm, friendly, helpful, while the accommodations were very comfortable. We enjoyed a sumptuous dinner with fine wine and good conversation with other diners. Wandering through the circuitous subterranean passages, looking for the bar, restaurant or the loo, was an exceptional journey of discovery, complete with... More

We had a one night stay and it was fantastic. I can't wait to go back. The staff were so helpful and genuine. No hairs and graces but very professional. They just couldn't do enough for you. A truly special place.

We stayed here for an Elizabethan Banquet and had a fab night. The staff are friendly and entertaining and made the evening truly memorable. I would love to come back again. The rooms are amazing and we loved exploring the castle. We met some lovely people and I have been recommending this to everyone. Thank you!

We stayed over on a Tuesday Night. We had a great afternoon tea and had a really nice room. The Hotel was excellent and the total ambiance was good. We hope to go again soon. We wanted to visit Beamish Museum and this Hotel is really close.

Our room was available at the time promised, but quite a few others seemed to be told that their room was not. Lovely hotel and great entertainment for the Elizabethan banquet night, 26th July. The actors and staff were great. But we have both been ill with stomach problems this week. I hope it is unrelated to the hotel, but... More

Arrived between 5 & 6 pm to be told we couldn't have afternoon tea. Disappointment. Watching the storm approach from the castle window, the downpour, feeling safe and comfortable in the luxury surrounds

We stayed here for one night to celebrate my husbands 40th Birthday. We stayed in a castle feature room and was not disappointed. What an amazing experience from entering the castle to leaving after breakfast we felt like royalty. We attended the medieval banquet and were thoroughly entertained. The room was stunning. Our bathroom was set through a wardrobe door... More

Amazing time but my only criticism is that the banquet hall is too hot! The trip was for my boyfriends birthday and he was so happy with it which made me happy. I recommend this to anyone book up now!
