We were there in the summer and it was really hot in the room as we were at the top of hte castle. The staff were great, and the food was... More

We went for my birthday for dinner and had the incredible tasting menu. So worth it and the staff really did make us feel special.

We had a classic room which was fabulous. A wonderful room in the castle walls with an amazing view. The bed, bedlinen and bathroom were first class and service was superlative. I cannot wait to go again.

I have stayed in a lot of manor houses, castles, estates etc but Amberley Castle is at the top of my list. You enter by driving up the long narrow road and over what used to be a moat (now a croquet lawn) through the porticus into the walled inner court. They have ample parking outside the wall. The rooms... More

The last time my husband and I were at Amberley Castle was about 12 years ago when we had a gorgeous lobster dinner to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the birth of our daughter. So, we decided to return for a festive afternoon tea to celebrate my 50th Birthday. We were led to the sofas in the lounge next to... More

We had been given a voucher for cream tea for two at Amberley Castle as a birthday present and were very much looking forward to it. We arrived on time for our afternoon booking and were shown into a lovely room where we were sat on two large sofas with a table between us in front of a log fire.... More

Ancient building and a bit tricky to navigate. Not recommended for the frail. Afternoon tea nothing special ! Dinner was excellent but wines ( by the glass , Chardonnay and Barolo ) probably from opened bottles and expensive for the quality. Also quantity in glass somewhat parsimonious! Breakfast disappointing with tough bacon, pre cocked sausages and cold plates. Room (... More

Idilic property but let down by the food. Luncheon- I don't think it's possible to serve smaller portions. The venison was cut so thin it actually stuck to the plate and you could see the plate thro it. Didn't even taste of meat yet alone venison. All the courses minuscule and I don't understand why they don't serve larger portions... More
