We've stayed twice at Lumley Castle. The first in a castle feature room and the second in a courtyard room. We really enjoyed both our stays and will certainly be going again. The staff are incredibly friendly and the food is great, with a lovely choice on both continental and cooked breakfast options.
If there is a downside it would be our upstairs courtyard room on our second visit. Due to being in the eves of the building, the sloping wall/ceiling was too low for my Husband who is 6'3". Also as the shower was over the bath in this room and in the eves, he couldn't actually shower properly as he couldn't stand up. I'm only 5'5" and could only just stand up to use the shower. However, that was really our only problem and next time if we have a courtyard room we will ask not to have an upstairs room.
Seeing some of the previous comments about the staff, I'm surprised at some of the negative views. We can't fault the staff who were extremely friendly and helpful.
Overall, we think Lumley Castle is a great place to stay and will certainly be doing so again in the near future.
