3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed for Friday and Saturday evening as part of a large group using the hotel as a venue for a wine tasting. The castle and public rooms are very impressive, well decorated and an interesting mix or old and new furnishings and fittings. The dining room with the glass atrium roof was a spectacular venue for our meals, which... More

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Having just returned from a two night stay at this hotel my verdict is mixed. The staff are very friendly and the food was excellent - plenty of it and good quality for both breakfst and dinner. The wine was reasonably priced and good quality too. The public areas are a little 'tired'. The room (in the West Wing) wasn't... More

From the lovely warm greeting from the lovely blonde & brunette receptionists......to the impeccable waiter & bar service in the Dungeon Bar and gorgeous restaurants. Food was amazing and despite rooms being tired and Room 21 waking us at crack of Dawn with loud generator noise below that felt like a jet engine.....we still enjoyed it. A lie-in would have... More

The building is beautiful, loved the suits of armour etc. Stayed in a 4 post room, bed seemed tiny and very hard. Had a lovely meal in the pub area, although the paintwork in the pub are was flaky, my partners food looked lovely and was presented brilliantly. I had a chicken tikka masala, which had been microwaved.....and bland. Apart... More

I booked this hotel for my husband's 50th birthday. I booked one of their Jacuzzi Suites and it was very expensive for one night only; which I was quite happy with at the time of booking. I also arrange for champagne and chocolates to be in the room for us on arrival. So really looking forward to the whole castle... More

We returned to the castle last month after getting married here a year ago and our second stay was just as good as the first! Beautiful rooms which are well equipped with everything you would need during your stay. The food here is to a very high standard so much so that everyone who attended our Wedding commented on how...

Travelling a reasonable amount at my own expence I always look for value for money, even better if the hotel in question offers something a little extra such as character, charm or extra services. In the case of Walworth Castle hotel, you get character and charm by the bucket load and the price is remarkable competitive. As on this occasion... More

It was our 6 year wedding Aniversary and I found this place by accident. I used to work at another hotel that is also a castle so I knew what kind of place it could have been. We weren't disappointed it was beautiful from the outside and had lovely grounds which we had a wander round. We were in a... More

This was a birthday surprise and ended up a bit of a let down. Seeing the flag flying in the distance I was initially impressed On approaching the building some parts looked a little shabby. Receptionist was quite abrupt when demanding deposit to check in!!! Didn't give any information about bar,dining room etc. Room was not nice. Expected an aged... More

Dear Alison R, Thank you for your review, and I apologise if you didn't enjoy your stay with us. On check in we do ask for a credit card for authorisation, although this is standard procedure across lots of hotels. Had you mentioned something at the time I am sure we could have resolved most of the issues you have... More
