6/10 Good

Looks nice but rooms are shocking.
The hotel was lovely from the outside and the are around was beautiful. However when we got into the room it was very poor. The floor was sloped so felt very strange walking around the room. The bed was extremely uncomfortable. There was a lack of curtains in the room and this made it difficult to sleep as it was lite till 11pm at night. The pipes behind the wall were extremely loud when people showered or used the toilet. It’s cost 280 pound for 2 nights. Was terrible for the cost. They should put more money into the place to make it more comfertable. Looks great from the outside though.

The room we booked was advertised aa a penthouse suite on your site, this certainly wasnt the case, if its a 900 year castle experience you want then thats what you will get, the attic room - stroke penthouse was completely miss advertised and a complete let down. Whislt clean and comfortable it certainly was not a penthouse suite . Enjoyed the river walk and castle grounds and reception staff were nice so overall my issue was just with the misadvertised room and complete over pricing.

8/10 Very Good

Very happy with my stay at the Appleby Castle. This is a genuine castle and you are free to walk around and explore as much as you want without extra cost. Stayed for 2 days and 2 nights and will definitely come back. The only downside was the lacking of pricing information for the food menu. However the drinks menu did have the pricing information. Minor issue, but overall pleased with my stay there

Character Filled Stay
We were the only guests, so it was very quite and very dark as there were few lights - the room we had was lovely with a four poster bed, although the bathroom was across the hall. If you want atmosphere with creaky floors and armour - then this is for you!
