My fiancée stayed at lumley castle for an unexpected overnight break just before Christmas.
Although we only stayed in a courtyard room our experience was fantastic, and a return is imminent.
The staff are very friendly, and efficient. The rooms were extremely clean and very comfortable, and the food was very very good.
We had a great afternoon tea, a wonderful evening meal, and a very tasty breakfast.
Lumley castle is a wonderful atmospheric medieval experience, and is a fantastic place for all ages whether on a romantic break, shopping, or a group meeting for golf or business.

We stayed in room 59 at the top of the castle, lovely view and the room was warm all the time we stayed. Breakfast and dinner in Black Knight restaurant was brilliant, staff very welcoming and helpful.

We stopped here at a wedding we were attending. Our room itself was in the court yard and not the castle itself. The room was small but well decorated and immaculate. The castle itself was brilliant and the staff were lovely. Breakfast was a bit hectic and I tend to judge a hotel on its breakfasts and I was disappointed. Both my wife and I had eggs Benedict (a favourite of ours) and it was a total let down. Would I stop here again? Yes but only in the castle.

We went on a Friday night dinner, bed and breakfast deal and had a brilliant time. The reputedly haunted castle certainly looks the part and is grand, if a little eerie. The decor is kept in an according style and has real atmosphere. There is loads of parking in and around the castle and we parked in the nearly empty overflow area, as the main part can get a bit snarled up at times. We were greeted with a room upgrade, to a castle room, which was a nice surprise. The room was fab - comfortable bed, very warm, tea and coffee, small wardrobe, nice view - although to keep the review fair and balanced, it was on the small side, noise travels in the creaky corridors, and the cold water stopped once after a bath (maybe a small water tank). Also, don't expect minibar or ironing board - these aren't in the room. We had dinner in the Black Knight and the food was delicious - the duck hash to start was fab (but quite filling) and the beef signature dish was super tasty (again very hearty). The atmosphere is great in the restaurant, but may be worth asking for one of the raised, curtained booth areas, if you want a bit more romantic seclusion! Service was faultless throughout for us. This place is different and something a bit special. We loved it and would definitely return!

The overnight stay at Lumley Castle started off with a drink in the bar before dinner in the black knight restaurant the food was exceptional with a large range to choose from the atmosphere very pleasing. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms were out of this world. Breakfast exceptional with everything you could wish for. Our sixth stay at Lumley Castle. We will be back.

Room Tip: Courtyard or Castle both good
