I came upon this hotel by accident yesterday. I went on a last minute trip to the area and wanted something to eat. I went into the bar and reviewed their menu. There was a stuffed pepper with cheese on the menu. I asked if this could be adapted for a vegan meal. A lady came to help me and... More

We are presently staying in the hotel. It is fabulous. It is clean, comfortable, friendly, and located in the middle of Downham Market. Last night, I realized that I did not have an adapter to charge my phone. I went downstairs and the owner stopped what he was doing and found one for me. The hotel is very quiet. The... More

This hotel's rooms are in need of refurbishment but the place has a lot of character. The main bar is a wonderful place with memorabilia on the walls and interesting paintings on the ceiling. I ate a decent evening meal in this room. Breakfast is served in the main restaurant and was very pleasant.

Stayed for one night recently while visiting family in the area. Had room 7, which we had stayed in before. Large clean room, with lovely comfortable bed, and big bathroom with nice large towels. Plenty of toiletries. Only niggle is that the shower is hand held which is always a bit awkward when washing your hair. Convenient carpark behind the... More

Four friends on a fishing trip who like a banter and a pint or more!!!!!, were made more than welcome. Great atmosphere and staff. Food superb, the Tbone is not for the faint hearted and could not fault the breakfast. This is the place to stop in Downham Market. 11/10.

We visited The Castle Hotel whilst visiting our family in the area and we couldn't have been more pleased. The hotel is warm and welcoming as are the lovely staff. We had a lovely refurbished room which was recently completed and it was amazingly comfortable with the most comfortable bed ever which was great having just spent 9 hours on... More

Great place to stay. We stayed two nights B&B the room was lovely, breakfast was spot on and we also had Sunday lunch which was beautiful. Right in the centre of Downham Market, with a lovely little bar too. Recommended and if we come to Downham Market again that's where we will stay.

The best way to describe this hotel is dated. The reception and bar area are traditional and not up to today's modern standard, not necessarily a bad thing so although not to my liking I'm sure it will appeal to some. The bedroom however was in great need of modernisation although perfectly adequate for my one nights stay
