Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This was a beautiful castle and easy to find a short walk to the town center. The staff was very kind and attentive and the owner took time to speak with us about the history. Well worth a stay.

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!
