Like other reviewers we attended a wedding here and again share the disappointment of the late check in. That said the location is superb and the castle itself well maintained and a beautiful setting for a wedding. The castle is a maze and you have to keep your wits about you to locate your room, though this is part of... More

The building itself is lovely, but they really have no conception of customer service. It is a manor built in castle-style, and the building is in fine shape. We walked around the grounds a bit, and outside of the immediate courtyard, the surrounding property is somewhat neglected. As others have mentioned, at check-in there was no offer to carry our...

Recently attended a Wedding at this hotel - disappointed at the 3pm check in time as the wedding ceremony was scheduled for 4pm so not much time to get ready! We where hoping for an early check in but it was not to be and in fact we ended up getting our room key at 3:25pm! Not very happy -... More

Late check in and early departure means they should employ more house keeping staff. In spite of the 3.00 pm checking we were kept waiting until 3.25 for our key. The wedding was at 4.00 pm. The staff were not in the least concerned about this and were heard making derogatory remarks about people sharing rooms.. Not at all professional.... More

Gorgeous place, fabulous setting and just sumptous. We booked as a treat whilst attending Carfeast, as didn't fancy camping! Room was lovely, food delicious, breakfast and service was magic. The staff kindly showed us around the castle, what a fantastic place for a wedding or party, what a venue, fab. You can drive your car up to the door unload... More

Recently stayed at this beautiful venue when we attended a wedding recently. A bit annoying that you cannot check in before 3 pm yet they want you out early in the morning and breakfast is served early. Nice clean rooms but not particularly generous in size for the price, i suppose that is what to expect in the type of... More

The setting and the food was fantastic. I had heard and read good reports about Peckforton and I was not disappointed. We ate of the Sunday lunch menu which was not extensive, however we found a starter and main to our liking. Rabbit & Smoked Eel which has to be one of the best starters I have tasted. Well presented... More

Such a unique concept ie a medieval castle built in the 1800s. The irst impression takes your breath away - you go through the entrance to the courtyard which displays various birds of prey. Peacock strutting about. Lovely grounds and courtyard for outside drinks. Ask for a tour as it is well worth it as many of the rooms are... More

We got married there on 4th August and it was a complete fairytale, everyone made us feel so special, we stayed the night before. On the day everything went to plan. Not ideal for some guests having to wait until 3pm to check in but we did have 5 early check in rooms so we managed between us. Food was... 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
