With our friends we spent 3 nights at the Castle Hotel. We had rooms in the attic which were very comfortable although very hot and fans in the room as standard would have been very welcome, however I must admit that the hotel did find a fan for me when asked. We ate at the hotel each night and the... More

Lovely one night stay en route from Oswestry to Wiltshire. Very dog friendly hotel in beautiful Shropshire countryside. Characterful building, great service, delicious breakfast. Our room was quite small in the attic, but it was busy and we got a very reasonable room rate. If I was staying longer I would go for a bigger room. Overall a great place.

Came here for a drink on Saturday afternoon last weekend. There was a beer festival at the time, which meant the hotel was packed with customers. There were six of us together and was very lucky to get a table in the bar, particularly how busy it was. There was also a BBQ going on as part of the festival,... More

Comfortable spotlessly clean room, nice individual touches, books to borrow and read, board games which we didn't use but a nice thought. Lots of information on the area,what was really nice was the printout with the days weather,info on the area and where to go.... More

We booked the castle through the internet so weren't that sure what we would get especially as we drove through the town and nobody was to be seen, but boy was I wrong. Wasn't sure on the hotel when we first saw it,but as soon as we went inside I was very surprised. The rooms were decorated to a high... More

So so so pleased we booked to stay in the Castle Hotel. Not only were the staff both welcoming and attentive, the food was excellent, the rooms were beautiful and when our taxi couldn't get us to the wedding as planned Rebecca came to our rescue! Fantastic hotel!

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

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
