Each wedding here is individual as the bride and groom we welcome. We understand that a fairytale wedding doesn't have to be traditional, so were more than happy to add a modern twist to your love story. We are one of the few wedding venues to have our own chapel for blessings, and you can even say I do to a ceremony in our wedding pagoda - as long as the sun shines!

Strange, Beautiful, Dated

14/11/2017 sr_1986, London, England, United Kingdom

We stayed overnight whilst working around the Harrogate area. Rooms were booked last minute, and were incredibly reasonable price wise. When arriving late at night, it's very dark and quite hard t... more

Thank you for your review following your recent stay. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay, the team will be thrilled at your comments about their helpfulness. As you point out the castle was not built as a hotel, but a private residence. This ancient castle dates back to the 11th century and owes it survival to the tenacity of the family Vavasour, and more recently the conversion to a hotel in 1996. Many of these great houses did not survive, those that did became venues such ours. Thank you for your feedback, only by receiving the views of our guests are we able to review what we offer and make improvements to our products and service. Yours sincerely Andrew Brownridge Hotel Manager

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you were left unimpressed with the staff. I cant agree with your assessment. We have many positive comments from visiting guests. A team I am proud of. The team member in the bar was on her first shift having just joined the team here. She was wearing a badge which indicated "in training". The bar to which you refer is an event bar, I am sorry if you were not offered the draught selection in addition to the selection in the residents bar, all other bar items are available in both bars. Once again thank you for your feedback. Yours sincerely Andrew Brownridge Hotel Manager
