The Castle Hotel in Bishop's Castle was built as a hotel in the early 18th century using stone from the castle that had been demolished. It's fascinating to see what people 300 year ago expected when staying in a hotel; indeed what the characters from a Jane Austen novel would have experienced. Now there's plumbing and heating our ancestors wouldn't have known but there's still the panelled dining room and creaking staircase.
The decor looks rather tired but the bed was comfy and the showerroom newly done up.
