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.

I had a lovely stay here for 2 nights on business! The setting was immaculate as was the service and attitude of ALL the staff... The food was also superb, if I was to make any criticism it would be the breakfast plate was far too hot and I got a burnt finger!! Nevertheless still 5 stars for me!!

We took advantage of a Dealmonster voucher for afternoon tea and B&B. Great stay, room was clean and comfortable. Afternoon tea was fab and staff at breakfast were superb. However the shower in our room was lacking....in height. I'm 6'3" and could only get in by stopping, making for an unfomfortable shower. But since that was the only problem I... More

This castle is beautiful and ideal for a wedding as it was for us. However the bedrooms in the courtyard are very small and therefore overpriced. The most comfortable room is the library. Drinks are expensive.
