We were there for a wedding service. Excellent service - you get the feeling that they may have done this wedding day stuff before! I go along with all the other reviews - you cannot knock the service or location etc. The rooms in the castle are of a high standard, however the room we were in, you were unable to open the any of the windows and were provided with an eletric fan. It was warm enough in April, I wouldn't be looking forward to a summer night in July or August. Also, is it us or is a 12.30 bar closure a bit early for a wedding? It is a shame that on a nice spring evening which we were lucky enough to have, that outside was where you went to smoke. Some patio heaters and ambient lighting would turn outside from a smokers venue to somewhere to sit with friends etc.
As you can see, if I'm having to mention the patio and lighting then they have already set the bar very high.
One other thing to mention is that we stayed one night at 'The Barnes' which is next door - a location I couldn't find on the site already. I don't know if this is associated to the Rowton Castle or not. However, you would probably only be staying here if you're are staying at the Castle either before or after a wedding, so it's fair to mention if you are, to pack some ear plugs as the walls are wafer thin and don't sit in your room and talk about the future in-laws because if they're in a next door room, they'll hear every word you say about them! Plus don't forget to Sky+ your favourite TV shows as you won't be watching them in the room as there was no TV.
