FAMILY LUNCH

Reviewed 2 december, 2021

enjoyed a lovely family lunch . Staff were very friendly and professional . The restaurant manager was really funny , and it made all the difference . Our food was really nice , it could have been a little hotter, but that's just our personal choice , this did not spoil the food ,it was lush !!! Everything about the day was really nice . Beautiful building , and will definitely revisit

Castle and grounds beautiful but food in Library Bar is poor quality overpriced

Cosy setting, warm fire, good ambience but menu items were not well described and waiting staff didn’t have much knowledge of the menu and were not particularly attentive. The food was mediocre and very expensive. The dining experience did not match the surroundings.

Honeymoon

Reviewed 24 november, 2021

We booked aur stay through offpeakluxury in the state room . on arrival we didn't get the room offpeakluxury had showed. On our booking the room. Was nice but nowhere near the luxury room they'd put across we where getting for our honeymoon. So we went to reception and spoke. To a lady called. Cait she explained that booking through other companies are allicated on arrival. So we showed he how we booked and she was so nice and took it to the manager and explained our situation. She came. Back to us and swapped our room to what we were. Expecting without Cait on reception our stay would of been a disappointment 👍THANKS CAIT YOU MADE OUR STAY PERFECT 👍

My husband and l stayed at Lumley Castle from the 13th -15th November to celebrate my birthday. We had a fabulous relaxing stay. Our bedroom in the mews was absolutely beautifully decorated, in keeping with the main castle building. Both the room and excellent bathroom were spotlessly clean. The main castle building was awesome. The reception area, library bar and dining room we're just amazing. The building was warm and every where you turned, log fires were burning. Both breakfasts and dinners were delicious, served by friendly and efficient staff. As you can see, l just cannot praise Lumley Castle enough. Cannot wait to stay again!
