“Brilliant”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

We stayed here for one night and were really impressed. Room very luxurious and comfortable, kept spotlessly clean. Nice touches L'occitane bath products and ipod docking station in the room. Felt very warm and homely. Only annoying thing was the bathroom door did not lock. Nice view from our room of the gardens.
Breakfast was lovely and great views from the restaurant of the castle. We had our evening meal at the park gate inn nearby (recommended at reception) which was lovely!
Very peaceful walk around the grounds before everybody else which was great. Would love to stay again.

We spent 5 nights at Leeds castle from 7th october to 12th october. Nicky on reception was very helpful in suggesting places to eat. We stayed in B+B. very good value for money. the room was lovely, the food was outstanding. the grounds were well kept and the castle was fantastic. Would recommend this fantastic castle for a relaxing stay, with friendly staff and good food.

Room 3 in the stable block was immaculate, apart from the torn/rotten linings to the curtains, the top of the venetian blind in the bathroom falling off and the blades were inoperable. Lovely Aqualisa shower (I have one) and good bath.

I wouldn't say the castle is the "most beautiful in the world", but it's ok. Dinner in the Fairfax restaurant was very good, apart from the odd staff. The bar had no sherry and the G&T I had as an alternative was not mixed or stirred. The wines at the meal were wrongly delivered at first. We had to leave at 0700 and therefore before breakfast. 2 boxes of small croissants and another pastry and a pot of fruit was delivered before we came back from dinner, so no coffee/tea, apart from what was in the room. Not good.

Room Tip: Room 3 in Stable block is lovely. Don't open the window onto the car park area, as the noise fr...

Sept. 26, 2013 my wife and I stayed one night at the stable courtyard and the experience was beyond expectations. Our room, room 3, was quite large with two single brass beds. The entire room and bathroom appeared to never been previously occupied. Clean beyond compare!
Staff fully attentive and made reservations via the Internet for dinner at their restaurant. The meal there was very good and at a very fair price. Breakfast was laid out in the restaurant semi-buffet style. Self-serve cold and table order hot meal from kitchen. Staff there also very attentive to needs.
The best part of the stay was that the tourists were out of the castle and off the grounds by about 3:00 so that my wife and I had, with the exception of another couple, the castle to ourselves until 5:00 and the entire 60 acres of gardens, grounds and orchards to roam in freely until dark fell at 8ish.The entire experience went down as Number 3 in our experiences of Places To Stay in The World.

We have just returned from a one night stay in the stable courtyard B&B at Leeds Castle and all I can say is wow what a fabulous experience ! We arrived at 10.30 am and entered through the Broomfield entrance for guests . We were not able to check in until 2pm but were allowed to park our car and to roam the castle and grounds until then . The castle is beautiful , very photogenic ( I took nearly 300 photographs over the weekend and the staff were very friendly and informative . The grounds are immaculate and they even camouflage any areas that have modern day equipment in them . We watched the falconry display and got lost in the maze , great fun ! We walked for miles enjoying the beautiful gardens and all the geese, ducks and swans that are so tame you can get very close for photographs . The rooms ( we had a family room that was two rooms with a shared bathroom linked by a corridor ) were immaculate and the beds were very comfortable . The full English breakfast served in the Fairfax restaurant overlooking the castle was very good , the only negative aspect was that the huge flat mushroom on the plate was full of chopped garlic which is fine if you like garlic at breakfast ! I don't therefore I requested a mushroom without garlic and was given 2 beautiful big flat mushrooms that tasted divine ! This weekend was not cheap but was amazing and has created some wonderful memories for ourselves and the friends we went with ! Would whole-heatedly recommend and it is also a beautiful setting for a wedding !

My wife and I stayed at Leeds Castle Stable Courtyard in August. It started out rocky. We looked and looked and could not find this place. We asked 3 locals and they did not know where it was. We stumbled onto a fellow near the road with a flashlight and clipboard and he informed us that the main gate was damaged by a lorry the day before and we were having to use an alternate entrance. He took our name and called the office and handed us our key to the room we reserved. That was the only person we ever had a face to face with during our stay. No touchy feel, no warmth. But that is the only ding on this place. The room was very nice and modern and clean. It is surrounded by gardens and a lake and the Castle. It is about a 1 minute walk to the castle and well worth it. Surrounded by a moat the Castle is storybook. The breakfast is in a restaurant on the grounds. It was a cooked to order buffet and we enjoyed it very much. It does not have the feel of a B & B but we still loved our stay. A stay like this will be remembered for a lifetime. Do not miss this place to stay for a night or two.

From the moment you drive in you feel at home and welcomed. Beautiful clean and tastefully decorated room, huge bathroom with massive bath and huge shower with luxurious touches of L'Occitane bath products and two bottles of still and sparkling water each. Nice touches! You are allowed to roam free round the grounds and we explored everywhere. While we were there they had an open air cinema so we could have watched a film for free! Fabulous full english breakfast, very tasty with pastries and continental to begin with buffet style. The following day you are allowed to stay for as long as you wish, so the room may be £120, the cost of 2 adults is £42 which brings down room rate, not including the free film. A very relaxing stay, we will be back very soon
