A very impressive building set in beautiful grounds that are the perfect backdrop to a summer wedding. Rowton Castle can be described as the dream location for your special day, with rolling hills in the distance, you are spoilt for choice for picture opportunities.
The staff were very attentive, smart and helpful.
The banquet rooms were tastefully decorated however if you are having a wedding with over 60 guests you'll be split across two rooms, with large double doors that extend the space, not an issue but something to consider. The food was heavenly and served at the tables.
We checked into our room after canapes staying at the very top of the hotel in the turets, room 20. The room was adequete in size with a huge bed that dominated the room. However it was very hot in the room and the windows only opened partially. Also another niggle was the bathroom extractor fan - so noisy - and stayed on for a good 15 minutes after it was turned off. There are all the amenities you'd expect in a hotel of this standard in the room inc, tea coffee, tv, bottled water and toilettries. The bedrooms could do with a lick of paint and a bit of money spent on them.
Breakfast was very nice the following morning.
For £129 B&B for two people we thought it was overpriced if you were to stay for a short break however if staying for an occasion like a wedding then it was worth paying the extra to have a room to freshen up and save on a taxi at the end of the night.
