We had pre-booked our night at The Castle to break our journey to the Chester area. The route there was very pleasant as was the town of Bishops Castle. The hotel looks a little daunting at first glance and the steps up to the reception may be found difficult for some. Once inside the atmosphere and staff were excellent and... More

My daughter lives in Argoed,Clun. It was her 49th Birthday!! So the family descended on the Castle Hotel to celebrate. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious, and the service excellent. Different people turned up to serve the different courses, which was fine, except we then forgot to leave a tip for such good service, as we were not... More

The location cannot be beaten Bishops Castle is a beautiful country town in the English - Welsh border country. My wife and I agree the hotel is the best we have ever stayed in - and we have stayed in many hotels around the world. The location is perfect you walk out the front of the hotel into a beautiful...

We were delighted by the genuine welcome we all got at The Castle, having often been disappointed by the grudging tolerance at some so-called pet-friendly hotels. Things got even better when we were shown to our room, which was large, clean and appeared to have been very recently and tastefully refurbished. There was a nice, modern bathroom with shower, supplemented... More

On a lovely day you would be hard put to find a nicer place for lunch than the gardens of this hotel. The Castle sits well at the top of the town and the view from the gardens over Bishops Castle and the Shropshire countryside is just lovely. The menu is quite extensive and we had the seafood platter for... More

This was the first place we stayed in Shropshire when we visited 30 years ago - so thought it was time we went back even though we now live pretty close. The ownership of the hotel has obviously changed but it is now a wonderful balance of original features and modern comforts and good food. The garden is wonderful on... More

Everything about the hotel was excellent. The attention to detail from the staff could not be faulted and was matched by the very willing attitude. Our dog was made as much part of the holiday as we were and it was lovely that he could be with us at meal times. The views were superb as was the location. We... More

Enjoyed three lovely days in the charming town of Bishop's Castle. Our base for two nights was The Castle Hotel. The welcome was warm and the room was lovely with a great shower and a stunning view across to the hills. The hotel has real character.
