Can't agree with previous reviewers as quite disappointed with this hotel. admit location is lovely, staff helpful and dinner in 1851 restaurant was first class, but breakfast was a big disappointment, fried eggs you could have played tennis with and four or five rashers of overcooked bacon stuck together is not our idea (as seasoned travellers, both in UK and...

I have just returned from Peckforton Castle after my friends and I enjoyed their Girls' Night Out experience. We all had a fabulous weekend and would recommend the hotel to others, especially the above experience. The hotel is set in wonderful grounds and on arrival its spectacular presence, amidst the surrounding woodland, is immediately felt. The staff are very welcoming... More

We attended a wedding with my partner as best man. He had the privilege of catching the ring bearing owl during the ceremony! We both felt Sophie was very friendly and professional during rehearsals and during the ceremony. Without doubt one of the most welcoming, pleasant members of staff I have ever come across. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.. however... More

We were not dissapointed and had a wonderfull stay. The castle is in a stunning location and will take your breath away. All the staff were very attentive and professional. We ate in the Brasserie two... More

I should say from the outset that I got a really good room rate for early Spring and therefore it represented outstanding value. Twice before I have said that a restaurant should have a Michelin Star and now they both have (Bon Amb, Javea, Spain and the Pipe and Glass, South Dalton, Yorkshire). I say that Restaurant 1851 at Peckforton... More

We stayed for one night with our 4 children. As regular users of 'chain' hotels it was fantastic to stay in such a unique place. The children were blown away with the outside of the castle and the rooms and helpful staff were great too. Fantastic!

I purchased one night with dinner, bed and breakfast for my parents as a birthday treat. They have completely raved about htis hotel since returning. They upgraded to the Beeston room when they arrived (views over Beeston Castle) which has a fantastic four poster bed and roll top bath. They had been nervous it would be cold but under floor...

What is great stay. It was our 40th wedding anniversary! We had an amazing room at the top of the tower. Don't book a room like this if you are likely to have had a few. It is also where our daughter has decided to be married. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, from getting more tea bags... More

Like many before have said , yes the castle is impressive when you drive up to it through the woods, but it went downhill after that. If I view this in the context that this deal is normally £230 for the night then the experience is really not good. Our room was pretty average, much like any other hotel room.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Welcome to Peckforton Castle - An enchanting Hotel in the heart of Cheshire. Rising majestically above the Cheshire landscape, the castle is both enigmatic and enchanting. Originally the home of Lord Tollemache and built in the early 19th Century, this Grade I listed building is the only intact medieval style Castle in the country. Over the years the castle has been the location for numerous movies including Robin Hood and Dr Who. Now owned by the Naylor family, the stunning exterior has been complemented by a loving and considered restoration programme resulting in a magnificent hotel and venue offering contemporary luxury and impeccable service. Services include 47 stunning individual guest rooms, conference, events, and wedding facilities for up to 180. Tranquility beauty, on site Falconry and team activities all adding up to a rather magical experience. Dining at the Castle truly is a special occasion, welcoming the public as well as hotel guests. The 1851 Restaurant offers a dining experience fit for royalty. Holder of 2 AA Rosettes and a Taste Cheshire Award. Alternatively the more informal and cosmopolitan 2010 Brasserie, located in the former scullery of the castle, features many of the amazing features of the original scullery including two cast iron cooking ranges dating back to the 1840's. Peckforton Castle's enchanting medieval style beauty and stunning location make it a truly impressive and desirable venue for weddings, christenings, birthday parties, or just about anything that's worth celebrating. Everything plays a part; the fabulous setting, stunning location, the attentive service and smiling faces, the bespoke menus and decorations. A magnificent venue for conferencing and meetings. Within the medieval walls, old and new combine seamlessly to offer state of the art multi media and conference facilities. Captivating on arrival, Peckforton Castle's unspoilt, natural beauty will stimulate and motivate, delight the eye, inspire the mind, tantalise the taste buds and leave you enchanted. ... more   less
