I was taken to Walworth Castle as a surprise for my wedding anniversary. What a nice surprise as we drove in and I saw an actual castle. Entering the castle was very authentic, original features and suits of armour. There are original features throughout which adds to the experience. We had a four poster room again full of lovely features.... More

Stayed at hotel to check out suitability as wedding venue. Staff very helpful, food excellent and room with 4 poster bed in main building very comfortable although a little draughty (it was a very windy night). All of the rooms and facilities used for the weddings are very nice, especially the covered courtyard.

The hotel info says that the hotel was refurbed in the early 80's and I would have to say that the interior suggests that nothing has been done since. The interior is very tired, our room in the annex smelt of damp, the bed was worn out and very uncomfortable and the bar is the same. This is a shame... More

Dear Antony Davies, I am sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. On all our literature it says that the castle was turned into a hotel in 1981, not that it was refurbished then . We are constantly reinvesting in the hotel, with the most recent renovations taking place this year. I sincerely hope that you will decide... More

On arrival to the Walworth Castle the member of staff at the reception desk observed that I held a Best Western Diamond Card and arranged the Free Upgrade and it was an exceptional upgrade a suite with a large 4 poster bed, just a pity that it was a business trip and not a personal visit. Thank you Walworth Castle... More

Dear westwoodirene, Thank you for deciding to spend Valentines weekend at the castle. The Falconry centre is opening on 29th March 2014 and will certainly be an added attraction to the castle.

Dear MrsE1, Thank you for your review about our hotel. I am pleased you enjoyed your birthday celebrations and that you liked the upgraded room. All rooms in the main castle are very different and maybe the next time you stay with us you might like to try one of our other suites. Thank you for recommending us. More
