4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were unsure of our expectations but on reflection they were exceeded. It actually feels more like staying in a castle than a hotel and the owners have blended together a very convincing authentic atmosphere/ambience with modern facilities. We were glad we chose a room within the castle itself, it had great character and the attention to (period) detail was... More

I was there for a wedding and stayed for 2 nights. The castle has kept its original look but yet about to facilitate with some modern touches. You cannot compare the rooms to a modern hotel but you will be impress with the castle rooms. It just brings you back in time it seems. The food is absolutely lovely although... More

We had a truly amazing time, the whole expierience was fantastic, we were well looked after. We ate in the Black Night Restaurant, the staff were very attentive, food amazing. Thank you... More

Stayed here with my partner for one night. I have certainly stayed in better places for the cost of our 1 night stay, (1 night dinner bed and breakfast £299). When we arrived it was already dark and the castle and grounds did look stunning. We went to reception to book in the member of staff who dealt with our... More

Lumley Castle is awesome! I loved our Feature Bedroom it was beautiful! The bath is separate like a royal box in the theatre! Accessed by two steps and partially secluded by a draped red curtain on one side! We couldn't find the bathroom and we were mystified at first? We opened the wardrobe door and there it was a hidden... More

I cannot thank the staff of the Lumley Castle enough for the wonderful time we had. Rebecca in Reservations gave us so much help in finding the perfect package for our stay - The Heritage Break which gave us two nights bed and breakfast, cream tea, and £30 each towards the cost of the Black Knight restaurant for the price...

Yes, a real castle. They put me up in a smallish room in the mews but everything was adorable and well thought out. Clean, comfortable and sweet. I could wander around the castle, too, as long as there were no functions going on in the rooms. An added bonus – they host an Elizabethan Feast on Fridays. It’s cheesy and... More

Stayed here for a friend's wedding. Paid £199 for a double room for one night. Wish I hadn't. As nice as the castle and it's setting is, it really isn't worth the money. The room we had was quite small, not much room to walk between the bed and the rest of the furniture. The fittings on the sink and... More
