Having spent several overnights here throughout 2020, even under the strict restrictions that we have found ourselves in, I have always been greeted with a happy smiling face, helpful, friendly and courteous. The restaurant has not been open of late but it always offers good food when it is. Hopefully 2021 will be different and things return to some sort of normality

Many thanks to all the staff who put on a magnificent show for the kids to be able to see Santa. Extremely well organised in such hard times. Can’t wait to come and spend a couple of nights with you sometime in the future.

Not enough heat in the bedroom, quilt on the single bed not big enough to cover your body. Paid extra to have breakfast but got nothing. You advertise the restaurant is shut but why be asked to pay for breakfast when there is non. Other hotels offering grab & go bags

My wife and I booked a one night stay at Walworth Castle as a little treat for missing other holiday getaways due to Covid 19. Checking in was very well organised and efficient. Big shout out for Bethany and Susan on the reception who were fantastic and informative about the facilities and the Castle history. Nothing was too much trouble. We loved the Castle period decorations, especially the suit of armour in the reception and the kings throne on the stairs. We stayed in room 17 (the haunted room) which included a four poster bed and a lovely newly fitted bathroom. We didn't book an evening meal on our stay, but we ate breakfast and it was hot and delicious. We will definitely come back again when the Covid 19 restrictions have been relaxed. Anybody thinking of having a special celebration or a night away wont be disappointed.
