Stayed for 2 nights with my wife following a couple of nights in Newcastle at a wedding. The hotel had a wedding event on the Sunday we arrived (28th July) which meant that we had to endure the evening disco until midnight. The function room is in the centre of the castle with the guest bedrooms all surrounding it and the noise pollution in the room is quite loud. Thankfully we had nothing to be up early for the next day but a hotel should be a hotel first and host functions only if it is equipped to do so without all the guests having to be disturbed. The grounds are huge so a purpose built marquee could be installed. Apart from this issue the hotel is amazing, stunning to look at, clean and comfortable room and fantastic food at breakfast and dinner in the restaurant. Almost perfect. less
Mrs S, Owner at Best Western Walworth Castle Hotel, responded to this review
Thank you for your recent review. Due to the nature of the building and the layout of the castle, some rooms may hear music louder than others, although we do try and keep guests who are not attending the event away from the noise as best as possible. We have considered a marquee, however the feedback we have from our guests is that they want to celebrate actually in the castle itself. I hope the noise didn't disturb you too much and I hope you will stay at the castle again if you are next in the Darlington area. If you call us directly we can advise if a function is taking place and if there are any rooms away from the noise.
