We stayed at The Castle one snowy evening on 2nd January. Following a hazardous road journey from Manchester it was a relief to be welcomed by a roaring log fire and a warming glass of mulled wine. Our room was 'Arundel' a double with ensuite bathroom very warm and cosy with flat screen TV and full tea/coffee making facilities. There was no need to reserve a table and only two of the three dining rooms were occupied, no doubt because of the inclement weather. A log fire in an open hearth warmed each room and tables were candle lit. We chose a pork loin dish with shallots, stuffing and sweet potato. It was delicious followed by a stomach filling apple and blackberry crumble with icecream and custard. The meal including 2 x 250 ml glasses of Shiraz and predinner drinks came to £42.30 which I thought was reasonable. The service was very friendly. Meanwhile the snow continued to fall and we wondered if we would get out in the morning.
An excellent night's stay and we will come again .

Managed to get in on new years eve after a late cancellation. The staff were very helpful and extremley friendly.
Despite the place being packed, being new years eve, they took the time and trouble to add an extra table and serve us a first class meal. The bedroom was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was first class.
Big thank you to Neil and his staff

Had a brilliant time at the castle, staff are fantastic,very friendly and helpful. Rooms could do with abit of a make over. We stayed in the annex and could hear residents in the other rooms but this didnt spoil our weekend. Food is lovely and we will definately be returning!

We have stayed at Castleton for the last 9 years at xmas time mainly in the Castle Hotel as it has always been decorated fantastic with big roaring fires and huge tree ,but the last 2 years has gone downhill,the decorations are far and few between with no tree and very very little decorations but still has the roaring fires making it cosy and welcoming.As someone said in a previous review that the man that checked them in seemed very stressed ,well it was the same when we went .They didnt have enough staff on and was queues 5 deep at the bar at some times.Xmas is a very busy time of year there and need twice as many staff on as they did.The food was lovely but a little over priced but didnt put us off.Now im on the subject of the rooms... we stayed in rooms 8 and 9 which are in the annex ,very nice rooms but if you have someone stopping above you it is very noisy,the floorboards creak that much you think they are going to come through thudding of footsteps are a bit annoying to say the least ,what with that and the small double bed we didnt get much sleep we are used to a superking size bed.My freind had an experience from the resident ghost..THE MAID... she goes around and tucks you in bed really really tight pressing down on your chest little bit unnerving for me but he thought it was great .Breakfast is served at a good time 8-10am which is good if you want a lay in after a long walk the day before,and has plenty to offer but could do with a hearty full english,but you cant have it all can you?ALL IN ALL WE HAD A FANTASTIC WEEKEND WITH PLENTY OF WALKING WITH NICE LONG HOT BATHS AND PLENTY OF BEER,WINE AND FOOD ,....JUST REMEMBER YOUR EAR PLUGS...ENJOY

Just arrived back from a very pleasant night at the Castle Hotel. I wonder what some people expect for their money after reading some of the previous reports. Our room (16) was very clean and comfortable with well appointed clean bathroom. Welcoming, friendly staff and pleasant surroundings - lovely log fires. Very good selection of ales and wine. Food was good for price..and plenty of choice. Breakfast was very pleasant in a room with a lovely log fire, free newspapers, plenty of choice - cereals,fruits,yogurt,bagels,croissants,danish pastries, etc - good coffee and juices....and the toaster worked a treat! I would definately stay again ...hopefully we'll see the ghosts next time!

We went to this Hotel as a treat for my husband's birthday. What a mistake! First impresstions weren't great. The manager who was booking in guests appeared to be very stressed. We were told that our room was in an annex outside the hotel. The annex was secure but the room was dated. The bathroom was horrendous with mouldy tiles, both on the wall and floor and the wall and pipes behind the toilet were very dirty. It could do with a total makeover. The children's sofa bed was really uncomfortable and had gaps all over it. The meal in the evening was nothing special and it was made worse by the fact that the table we'd reserved was made next to a table full of men who were drunk and swearing. When we asked them to curb their behaviour as we had young children with us we were greeted with a barage of abuse asking us why our children were up at that time anyway. It was 7pm!! One of the men clearly wanted a fight as he continued to keep staring at my husband. I complained to a member of staff that said we could move to another table but allowed the other people to stay. My children were upset and I am also 5 months pregnant and was very upset by this altercation. Upon leaving the hotel we informed the manager that there appeared to be a leak in the reception area. He was not at all concerned and said it was probably someone having a shower upstairs!! We paid approx £150 inclusive of the meal but to be quite honest we could have stayed in a decent boutique hotel for this amount. We will never go there again and I don't recommend anyone else to either!!

Stayed here before, very welcoming and friendly staff, we were told we had a choice of room, 4 or 12, 4 being the most haunted- we took 4!! large room full of character but in need of a bit of TLC. corner bath in large bathroom, could easily accomodate larger bed, we are used to 6 footer! didnt sleep much due to expecting a ghostly visit but it was also VERY windy and a bit noisy and we are insomniacs. food very good for chain and reasonably priced, breakfast adequate but would have prefered cooked as in derbyshire for walkers who would benefit from a robust meal to see them on their way. lovely village.parking a problem not just a t hotel but throughout village. All in all worth a visit if just for the character and history.
