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.
The place is amazing, stunning building with friendly staff, and the cream teas were lovely!
I liked the room which was nicely furnished and decorated,I also enjoyed the lovely grounds with views of the castle.
The restaurant was poor,the food did not come up to the standard of the hotel,the vegetarian options were unimaginative and poor value.
The bed was boor, bathroom very old, Not good Restoration,All the room was dark color and bathroom, No internet in my room, Slow in sieves, There is ghost in the Hotel and rank in uk Number 3 of Ghost
The rooms are lovely and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was very nice with lots of fresh fruit, cheese and pastries. Good choice of fruit juices and preserves for your toast.
Parking outside your room if you are staying in a courtyard room can be a little tricky and really should be reserved for the use of hotel guests not all visitors to the hotel.
the service was perfect in every way and the atmosphere was superb. The quality of the food served in the restaurant was also of a very high standard.
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.
