We attended a wedding here, its a beautiful venue, the gardens and grounds are superb, the whole day was perfection, they have very high standards, and we were really looked after by courteous staff. You want for nothing, and the food was faultless, would recommend it !!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 18 it was very spacious well appointed room with really comfy four poster bed, and...

We recently attended a wedding at Rowton Castle and I just wanted to say we had a fantastic day from beginning to end. The staff are a real asset, the food was wonderful, we especially loved the evening buffet. The hotel is a perfect venue for a wedding! Well Done

We stayed here with my mum and dad on the weekend of the 12th may for one night as a wedding experience as we are getting married here this year! We could not of hoped for anything better we stayed in room 7 & 8 and they were both beautiful clean and had beautiful views. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and the food we had was amazing we really can't wait to have our wedding here if everything is as good on the day it will be perfect! Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful but a few of my favourites are room 3, 6, 7, 8 , 18 & 20 not suitabl...

We attended our Grandaughters wedding here at Rowton Castle and it was a perfect venue.The hotel is in a beautiful setting and offers a very high standard in all aspects. The staff throughout the occasion were very attentive to their guests needs from start to finish.One could not have asked for more.

My daughter stayed here on Monday evening while attending a friend's wedding there. Beautiful setting. Food was fantastic and the service great. Bedrooms beautifully clean. How about providing a teapot - would make the experience even more fantastic!

Room Tip: No lifts because it's a listed building, so if you have difficulty climbing stairs, choose a gr...

We stayed at this hotel for our granddaughter's wedding yesterday. The whole day was wonderful, the staff were helpful, the setting stunning, the food was excellent and everyone looked fantastic, although the bride put us all in the shade. Our room was lovely, very clean with a stylish bathroom and the breakfast was hot and served with a smile. This is a venue that caters for weddings and they do it well.

We had our civil ceremony here in may 2012. To say it was perfect is simply an understatement. It was the first venue we looked at, and the last - we fell in love with this beautiful castle straight away. We had the all inclusive hire, which is great value for money. The staff here ensured that we had absolutely nothing to worry or stress about on our day, they were attentive but not intrusive. Rooms were grand, hog roast was delicious, resident DJ was a great alongside our Drag Act, Scott Burrey. It really was one big party. The following morning you wouldn't have known there had been a wedding - the castle was immaculate , the staff had kindly collected up all of our memorabilia etc and put them into one room for us.
Even one year after people still talk about our ceremony at this perfect venue - if in doubt just visit there once and you'll be hooked.
