We stayed the weekend at Walworth Castle for a family wedding. Our room was in the main part of the castle, it was clean and very comfortable, the staff were friendly and went out their way to make our stay a wonderful experience. We ate in the restaurant on the Friday evening and had breakfast on the morning, the food...

We recently stayed at Walworth Castle with some guests for a special occasion. We were anxious that everything should go according to plan and that we would be given good service. We didn't need to worry about a thing. From the moment we made the booking we were given excellent service. Susan organised everything so that each of our guests...

An absolute bargain for what we experienced. A one night stay with an evening meal with no complaints. Staff were great, food was good, room was clean and comfortable. The castle is lovely and the grounds are very scenic.

This hotel certainly has the wow factor as you turn into the drive and view the lovely building and surrounding countryside. Inside the furnishings are in keeping with the building itself with suits of Armour and period furniture. My room in the castle building was very comfortable but not spectacular, and I suspect nicer rooms are available with four-poster beds...

We booked a standard room at the castle, on check in we found it was very small. We upgraded to a four poster room for £50 extra. Very nice room but not worth £200 which we were told it would normally be. Negative side there were 55 steps up to it , furnishing were OK nothing flash. Bed was very...

Dear Pauline, Thank you for your recent review of our hotel. I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. We only had availability in the restaurant at either 6pm or 8.15pm as we had a private dinner in another room, not a staff booking.

We stayed here overnight for my partners birthday and overall, we really enjoyed the stay. The countryside surrounding the hotel is fantastic and it's very quiet and peaceful at night; the only sounds are those of the owls and sheep. I had booked a four-poster room and we were not disappointed, the room was lovely with a huge bay window...

Dear Reviewer, Thank you for your recent review. Firstly I just wanted to make you aware that all Best Western hotels are privately owned and operated and Best Western is a membership organisation which hotels join. This is why lots of Best Westerns are so different which adds to the personality of the brand. I hope you chose to stay...

We stopped off here to visit the Birds of Prey Centre situated within the grounds of the castle. The entrance is very quaint and resembles a real castle gate. There is good parking and a nice play area for the children. The castle itself is beautiful. Inside it is characteristic and well laid out. The bar/restaurant was serving Sunday lunch...

Just back from a family wedding. its a stunning location, a proper fairytale wedding destination. The biggest asset of this hotel is the staff. They are all pleasant, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. They all actually seemed to enjoy being there! I will certainly be returning.

“Room 28 is above bar so music can be heard and wi-fi signal not fantastic (possibly because of the thick castle walls).”
