Having travelled from Preston Lancashire last Saturday, anticipating the delights awaiting me - namely afternoon tea at Peckforton Castle, to say that I was deflated, disappointed, and brought back down to earth with a bang, was an understatement. Myself and a girlfriend, who don't get the chance to get together very often, yet definitely appreciate the finer things life has... More

Michael A, General Manager at Peckforton Castle, responded to this review

Thank you for your feedback, I do hope that you don't find my response to be repetitive. Afternoon tea is an area of our business that has been developing over the past 18 months, from when we first introduced this offering. Following your feedback we have changed the way in which our scones are produced, which I believe will result... More

There's a real wow factor on arriving at this imposing Victorian 'fake' medieval castle. Went for a 50th birthday celebration and thoroughly enjoyed it. There were other events happening at the same time and was some noise from them, but we couldn't hear it when in our function room. Lots of positives - food was really rather good for this... More

Wow what a lovely venue for a wedding. But it helps to be young and fit to stay here for any amount of time, so many stairs. Everywhere is clean and tidy although some of the carpets could do with a good clean; I refer to the carpets in the hexagonal room. Room looked lovely with all the tables set... More

We stayed here some time ago and for our first wedding anniversary thought we would return, on arrival as before the building is impressive, grounds well maintained, receptionist was new and a little inexperienced, the Tollemache suite was our room, on entering a stale musty smell hit us, we took it as it is an old building, the lounge area...

Just arrived home after celebrating our daughters wedding at this stunning venue. The setting is beautiful and the staff so professional. It is obvious that they are well practised at the organisation of such events but still managed to make us feel as if they really wanted it to be special for us.

Booked a night's stay here through Amazon Local. Our room was a small room located in one of the turrets with a tiny window - not much of a view, and a small bathroom (shower). This said, you are staying in a castle so it does feel 'special'. We had a meal in the restaurant and this was magnificent -... More

You will have a fab time here if... You are a member of the wedding party, who wont care whose window you are having a loud drunk conversation next to. You have children who aren't fussy eaters.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Peckforton Castle - An enchanting Hotel in the heart of Cheshire. Rising majestically above the Cheshire landscape, the castle is both enigmatic and enchanting. Originally the home of Lord Tollemache and built in the early 19th Century, this Grade I listed building is the only intact medieval style Castle in the country. Over the years the castle has been the location for numerous movies including Robin Hood and Dr Who. Now owned by the Naylor family, the stunning exterior has been complemented by a loving and considered restoration programme resulting in a magnificent hotel and venue offering contemporary luxury and impeccable service. Services include 48 stunning individual guest rooms, conference, events, and wedding facilities for up to 180. Tranquility beauty, on site Falconry and team activities all adding up to a rather magical experience. Dining at the Castle truly is a special occasion, welcoming the public as well as hotel guests. The 1851 Restaurant offers a dining experience fit for royalty. Holder of 3 AA Rosettes and a Taste Cheshire Award. Alternatively the more informal and cosmopolitan 2010 Brasserie, located in the former scullery of the castle, features many of the amazing features of the original scullery including two cast iron cooking ranges dating back to the 1840's. Peckforton Castle's enchanting medieval style beauty and stunning location make it a truly impressive and desirable venue for weddings, christenings, birthday parties, or just about anything that's worth celebrating. Everything plays a part; the fabulous setting, stunning location, the attentive service and smiling faces, the bespoke menus and decorations. A magnificent venue for conferencing and meetings. Within the medieval walls, old and new combine seamlessly to offer state of the art multi media and conference facilities. Captivating on arrival, Peckforton Castle's unspoilt, natural beauty will stimulate and motivate, delight the eye, inspire the mind, tantalise the taste buds and leave you enchanted. ... more   less
