Walworth Castle Hotel, is not exactly in anywhere but in open countryside a few miles from Newton Aycliffe and Darlington and the A1 and in my opinion well worth the drive,
The hotel is a statement building, it says I am a castle.
I have been coming here for eight years on and off, it was one of the first Best Westerns I stayed in, but I have never rated it on Trip Advisor.
There is a large gravel car park at the front with further parking at the back, there is even an electric car charging point, bet you don’t get one of those in many castles!
On arrival booking in was simple and painless, as it should be, I was upgraded from a 'West Wing' Annex room to a castle room … excellent…., this will obviously not influence my review. !!
The room on the first floor was a neat double, with flat screen TV, an arm chair and large bay window, I had a small adjacent dressing room / office space which led on to a en-suit bathroom, all very clean and tidy and apparently looked after by Brenda.
If you want to stay in a Hotel with pristine prints and in immaculate condition, this might not be for you, but what this place does deliver is CARICATURE, as well as a unique opportunity to get up close and personal, with a building that’s older than America!
There is a pleasant decked terrace at the back of the Hotel overlooking the Tees valley countryside, a lovely place to sit out when the weather permits.
They also have a separate Bird of pray centre which is open during the day.
There are two menus in the evening the Main traditional restaurant with a reasonably priced set menu, and the Farmers Bar which served me well. The Breakfast in the morning is cooked to order. less
