Situated in its own grounds, close to junction 63 on the A1M, overlooking Emirates Durham International Cricket Ground and the river Wear. Lumley Castle dates back over 600 years to the 13th Century. A magnificent monument to a bygone age, now converted into a unique 4 star Hotel. Lumley Castle Hotel s 73 luxurious en-suite bedrooms are all individually designed and situated within the Castle and its adjoining Courtyard and Courtyard Mews. The Black Knight restaurant is set deep within the Castle and enjoys an excellent reputation locally and the Library bar is atmospheric and comfortable. Whilst a favourite for leisure guests, the Hotels quiet yet accessible location close to Durham (7 miles) Newcastle-upon-Tyne (11 miles) and Sunderland (12 miles) together with free WiFi, free parking and a range of meeting and event rooms make this a sensible overnight choice for both the business and leisure Guest.
Being woken up at 6.45am by a false fire alarm.
Friendy staff, environment, good standard of room
The restaurant menu was very expensive and should offer a an altenative menu, also they did not have an open internet connection.
The character and polite staff
Being woken up by the fire alarm!!
Beautiful grounds & staff were excellent
Room was very dark - the meals were very expensive & I found from their own website that if I had booked the stay, dinner, bed & breakfast directly with them I would have saved money.
Possibly the best hotel I have stayed in. Atmospheric, excellent staff and superb food.
