Stayed in Castle View room. Great size and amenities, very quiet at night, beds comfortable. All staff friendly with good knowledge of things to do in surrounding area. Food in restaurant was wonderful and service was excellent. Tour of the Castle well worth doing. Highly recommend a stay here.

We are just home after a 2 night stay. What a wonderful place to discover. Driving in the gates and up the hill towards the castle was just so exciting. We absolutely loved our time and could not get over how lovely, friendly and helpful the staff all were. Nothing was a bother to them and they really made us feel so welcome. Our meals were all great too. We even got advice on the best place to visit Hadrians wall and had a fantastic day exploring the area. Thank you Rees! A minor plumbing issue was handled professionally, a plan was made and our stay and experience were put first. A tour of the Castle was a real bonus and gave us a good insight into the history of the place and an appreciation of how much has been done to provide a unique experience for guests. We hope to be back some day. It was a brilliant trip and a special thanks to all the staff for their friendly and professional manner.

Langley Castle. Big thank you, to ALL the Langley Castle team for making our stay so special and magical. I had no idea where I was going until we arrived at the castle. All I knew, is we were staying overnight and dinner will be a fine dining experience, and one of the best we have had over the years. Driving through the forest and following the long winding road, we finally arrived at Langley Castle woodland estate Northumberland . I thought to myself’ as the castle came into view ‘ OMG. As we both walked towards the castle it was utterly breath taking, with the huge fountain sitting so elegant in front of the castle, along with the truly beautiful landscape surroundings . We walked through the huge wooden door of the castle’ and into the grand castle hallway- WOW 😮 just WOW. The castle is steeped in history. Knights stand stall in traditional armour, a beautiful wooden staircase that traveled as far up’ as the eyes could see, along with stunning period furniture, flags and pictures that blended in so well with this 640 year old castle , and 7 feet wide stone walls. The magnificent drawing room, with blazing log fire, traceries and stained glass, together with the oak-panelled cocktail bar, compliment the intimate nature of the Josephine Restaurant. The food served in the restaurant is of the highest order boasting a 2AA Rosette, making the most of fresh, local produce, with fish and game a speciality. Once we were checked in, we were shown to our room. As we made our way to the featured room called the- Derwentwater room, after Earls of Derwentwater (James and Charles Radcliffe) and both Earls were executed at the Tower of London for their parts in the Jacobite Rebellions of 1715 and 1745. A shrine to the brothers lies a short walk . Once again as we entered the room ‘WOW’ 😮 The room was magnificent to say the least, with its beautiful four poster bed, high ceilings, draped beautiful red curtains, fireplace, and stunning period furniture. Author JK Rowling came to stay in this Castle, not once but FOUR times, to gain inspiration for the Harry Potter books. The castle is said to be haunted by a ‘Grey Lady’, reputed to be Maud de Lucy, widow of Sir Thomas, who threw herself out of a window having received news of his death at the Battle of Shrewsbury. Author JK Rowling, wrote into the Harry Potter books moaning myrtle, on the back of the reputed Maud de Lucy - Grey lady. The huge long winding staircases that traveled so high up into the top of the castle, as far as your eyes could see into the darkness , was also written into the books of Harry Potter-the famous staircase of Hogwarts. American Stuart Madnick, Baron of Langley, and his wife (sadly passed away) Own the Northumberland castle . Stuart Madnick, the John Norris Maguire Professor of Information Technology and Engineering Systems, has owned Langley Castle in England since 1985. The castle was purchased for around £70,000, and £1-million was spent renovating the castle. Today, Langley Castle is value around £15- million. A huge massive thank you to you all, the experience of staying at the castle will last with us for a lifetime.

We love an afternoon tea. Each year we try to have at least three. We found Langley Castle by chance, seeing it featured in a magazine. So at the end of June 2022 we made the hour and ten minute journey from the seaside to just west of Hexham. Upon entering the grounds you see the magnificent castle. There is more than ample car parking and several EV charging points. The grounds are immaculate and there are even peacocks wondering around. Every aspect inside the hotel is amazing, a true fairy tale castle. Each area we entered was clean and tidy. The toilets were immaculate. The staff were super friendly and totally customer focused. As for the afternoon tea.......We have had a few in our time but this one was superb ! We ordered on afternoon tea and a gentleman's afternoon tea. Sat in a corner of a grand first floor room we drank from dainty china cups charged with red hot Ringtons tea and coffee. The sandwiches were fresh and a delight. The cakes were so light. certain items had been warmed, which was unexpected. The cheese and fruit scones were faultless. This afternoon tea has knocked a certain posh Durham hotel off its top spot as our cream tea venue of choice ! I was so impressed I book an overnight stay for November as I was paying the bill. Top marks to the whole Langley Castle team - well done......

Fantastic stay, we stayed in the De Lucy room in the castle. It was an incredible experience. We dined in the restaurant and the food was cooked to perfection, they even surprised me with a happy birthday chocolate surprise! In the morning we had the Northumbrian Breakfast which was scrumptious. The staff couldn’t be more helpful and the tour of the castle topped off a perfect 40th birthday. Highly recommended.

I stayed here for one night in May with my husband on a trip staying in 3 bnbs and Langley Castle all in different locations.We stayed in the Tower room as I wanted the castle experience and this room was the one I thought would give me that.So after 5 flights of stairs we made it to our room, It was as I expected,I was pleased.We had booked the dinner and bed and breakfast package.I went to take a shower and the shower is over the bath so i climbed in behind what can only be described as a cheap mouldy shower curtain.I then noticed someone else hair around the bath in several places. When we went down to dinner i did notify reception of the poor housekeeping and i was assured something would be sorted and it was when i recieved the invoice the next morning,there was a slight reduction in the cost.The bathroom is not of a standard i would expect ,it really let the whole experience down for me,it needs updating asap (and i know as hubby fits bathrooms for a living)We booked a dinner time slot and everything was as expected,the food was lovely and the drinks were not too expensive either.I had a lovely nights sleep, that i wasnt expecting.Out of the 4 different places we stayed that week this one was the one that I wouldn't go back to due to the housekeeping and very outdated bathroom.For less than half the cost per night we stayed in 3 lovely clean and updated bnb's

The hotel is in a wonderful location. Last year we stayed in the castle but the stairs proved rather daunting so this time we opted for a castle view room. A very good room, large, well-equipped and comfortable and actually much better than the rather tired castle room of last year. The waiting staff were all very friendly and helpful, although I have to say somewhat amateurish and not fully trained for a hotel of this standing. Reception could have been more welcoming. If you are elderly, help with luggage is minimal. We were unhappy with the restaurant - we were only offered the £55 three-course table d’hote menu but, being elderly, neither of us can manage a full meal in the evening. I had just a main course on each evening and my wife two. I felt that it was quite unjustified to be charged the full £55 for each meal, particularly considering the modest size of the meal! Definitely not value for money and smacks of charging the most for the least.

Thank you for your positive comments about the castle. I am pleased you found the staff friendly and I feel I must defend our young staff, you mention they are friendly and helpful, many of them are learning which we all have to do sometime. Hospitality staff are hard to come by at this present time and we consider ourselves lucky to have the team we have. We offer both table d'hote and relaxed dining to all of our guests to ensure they have exactly the amount they want. Our food is regularly complimented upon so I('m sorry you felt otherwise.

This is without doubt a beautiful hotel, the feature rooms within the castle are everything from a castle stay you could ask for. The serving staff in the bar & restaurant were very friendly. However.... if your stay goes without a hitch then its 10/10..... if you have an issue post stay...... Customer service is terrible.

Stayed here overnight on our way to the coast in room 27 in the Gate Lodge. Accomodations was first class. Chose relaxed dining option and thoroughly enjoyed the food and service in the dining room. The Battlements tour of the castle was an unexpected bonus. Really interesting. The friendly and helpful staff were our abiding memory, especially Elaine on reception who helped us recover from the dreaded Sat Nav.
