Second time we have stayed here. This time in the little cottage opposite the hotel. Wonderful little place. Dog friendly hotel - helpful staff - I am vegan and it was no problem to accommodate my dining preferences. In a lovely little village with fantastic walks nearby. Will definitely be going again.

We stayed at the hotel's self catering cottage opposite and it was delightful. Really clean and fresh with all the amenities.

We ate breakfast each day at the hotel and...

This was our second stay at the Castle Hotel. The hotel is perfect for a short break and situated at the top of the hill in the town close to everywhere you will visit. Our room was a standard double but we thought it quite large. Nice big comfy bed, nice modern bathroom and all the facilities you would need....

Both the castle hotel and Bishops Castle (the town) itself proved to be real finds. We'd never been before: we'll be back. The town is charming with excellent walking, and book, craft etc shops to keep one happy through any rainy day. You can do good walks from the hotel. The houses are also really fun: brightly painted with a...

Great place to go to either stay or eat. We went for a family meal and it was everything you could want. Wide choice of food, cosy bars and helpful staff. I've also stayed at the hotel which is a great bonus to the Bishop's Castle vibe!

Recently stayed at this hotel and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We took our dogs with us and the box in the room was a great idea as had bowels and towels and even treats. Breakfast was amazing and such a great choice. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys walks and a dog friendly environment....

Many hotels train their staff to be friendly, but here the willingness to help and the genuine friendliness of all the staff was far beyond that. From the minute we arrived with our 2 small dogs we were met with a cheerful eagerness to help which was so refreshing and made is relax instantly. The rooms and decor are tasteful...
