We stayed for a weekend , and had an enjoyable stay . It's a small hotel , which has had some substantial refurbishing . The room we had , room 2 , was pleasantly decorated to a high standard and spotlessly clean . The bathroom was modern and clean . The staff were friendly and helpful , and the breakfast... More

On the surface this appears to be a lovely little hotel, but the most important need for any weary traveller, namely sleep, evaded us. We were allocated a room at the front of the hotel, which was comfortable and clean, but throughout the entire night we could hear the conversation and bathroom noises from the next room. We could hear... More

Outside of Downham Market and Kings Lynn, the Castle Hotel has to be one of the best kept secrets in Norfolk and surrounding Counties. I checked in here as it is in very close proximity to where my brother, his wife and my niece live. It is very old, has a history dating back a great many years, and is... More

This hotel is a hidden gem in the sleepy town of Downham Market. The owners and staff are super friendly and the décor of the rooms, the lobby and the bar is beautifully done. You get the sense that this hotel is a labour of love.... and we loved staying there. Go for the four poster bed if you want... More

Usually stay here on business. Lovely old fashioned hotel - a nice break from travel lodges etc. Rooms are nice and tidy and the wifi available is fast. The food was great and they had a nice selection of beers. Howard and the staff are always very welcoming. Suitable for business or leisure.

Stayed for one night on business, very good staff, service and food. Situated at a junction in the centre of this small rural town close to the broads and the main road. being at a junction I expected it to be noisier than it was. It has a small private car park at the rear and it is literally a... More

We did not stay at this hotel, but had a wonderful evening meal there. We were given a very warm welcome and made to feel at home. Would consider staying there if we visit the area in future. The reception area was very impressive, and the service excellent.

I have noticed I keep saying "great hotel in a great location" in my reviews, so wanted to avoid doing so this time. Unfortunately, it sums up our stay at the Castle Hotel too. We went for the 'Honeymoon Suite', albeit 34 years too late, as it had a four poster and jacuzzi. Certainly worth the extra money as it... More
