I booked a feature room for my boyfriend and I as a Christmas present through Celtic Castles, who I must add are brilliant, I highly recommend them and will be using them again! This hotel/castle is truly a step back in time! If you're looking for somewhere different then this is for you! I was a little dubious and worried... More

We arrived for afternoon tea with no booking and were greeted very nicely at reception and directed to the Library Bar. The hotel is stunning, historical and ever so interesting. Female staff wear - badly fitted - period dress costume, which borders on tacky. They would look much smarter in knee-length waitress-style black dresses with aprons. It is worth noting... More

My wife and I took advantage of a Groupon deal at £89 for a Courtyard room, breakfast for two and a bottle of wine. This was good value, but one look at the expensive tariff and restaurant prices raised my expectations as to the level of quality we should experience. The room was small but adequate, spotlessly clean and everything... More

Beautiful hotel, individual, clean, seeped in history, beautiful grounds. Attended for a wedding which was fabulous. Food beautiful, function room gorgeous. Paid extra to stay in a Tower room - £229 per night!!!. 4 poster bed was great, but room was very small and very dark. Would probably choose to stay in a standard room if I returned for a... More

Stayed at Lumley castle as a treat for my wife's birthday. This review pertains to room 55. The room was a little on the small side, although decorated to a good standard. Not a huge issue as we were only there one night. However, it was very noisy due to a wedding that was taking place. The noise came from... More

I am unable to get to the phone to call them due to work commitments, so have tried to contact via other media when I have the chance, I've had no reply to the online enquiry form I have submitted or via their twitter account. If you are not going to use this media, do not offer it as a... More

My fiancee and I went to Lumley castle for a wedding and decided to stay overnight. This was a mistake. On arrival we were immediatley disappointed as we checked in on the advised time only to be informed our room was not ready. After a few minutes we were advised we could check into another room. When arriving at the... More

Lumley Castle hotel is an imposing 14th Century castle with all the "mod cons". The castle stands on a hill overlooking Chester le Street - away from noise pollution. The hotel staff were fantastic! The room provided (54) was quite small with a "quirky" bathroom and when we asked for a bigger room we were immediately provided a lovely, spacious... More

We stayed the one night for my sister in law wedding. It's a great venue for wedding but the insides of the castle need a make over it's looking a little tried. The waiters uniforms look old and tried as if they have been used since the 16th century! The room was a decent size and the beds are very... More

Went for the 'murder mystery night' thinking there would be some participation - turned out to be 6 bad actors on a tiny stage in a room with about 200 people crammed into it. Your only participation was putting an 'x' in the box of the scrap of paper that was on everyone's table. The food was THE worst food... More
