We stopped at Rowton Castle for one night on the way to Dairy show. What a beautiful place. Atmosphere so relaxed staff so efficient nothing too much for them. Some hotels staff could do with going there to learn how to do the job properly. Professional throughout. Highly recommend it.

Visited here today for my girlfriend's birthday, it was a 170 mile trip, but such a lovely location.
Food prices are so reasonable and the place has a very personal feel to it. Our waiter was a chap called Keith, who was absolutely exemplary, and really made us feel welcome. He happily explained some of the more (to me) obscure items on the menu - I don't normally do posh nosh! Give me a good burger, fries and a coke and I'm happy! Food was wholly enjoyable and I tried a few things for the very first time. Thoroughly enjoyable!

When a castle needs a use, what better could there be than turning it into a first class hotel, and a wonderful job they have done. The building itself is outstandingly superb, and although you need a healthy bank balance to stay here, it just oozes quality.

Dear KevinSadler2364
Thank you for your concise and extremely complimentary review of Rowton Castle. "Superb" and "oozing quality" are high praise indeed; thank you very much. We have been custodians of this Grade II* Listed castle for 20 years this year, and we like to think that we have added a little to its heart and soul in every one of those years. We believe it offers "affordable luxury", and we hope that many more people will visit us to enjoy the surroundings and service for years to come.
WIth very best wishes
Bryan

We were guests at a family wedding... (J&N) The whole day was perfect.
The Wedding Service (inside) took around 25 minutes.. then we went to the lounge with Prosecco or a beer.. Then outside for many photos... an ice cream or two from the cart whilst we waited and chatted. It was a lovely day. Back inside and seated for the wedding meal....Lovely decorated tables (pate type terrine starter, followed by a beautiful Roast Beef dinner, big yorkshire puds the lot... veg, spuds, gravy etc, followed by a chocolate brownie desert..(a little rich) but all excellent.. plenty wine, pure orange juice and water on the table..and a nice touch of a £5 ticket for a free drink from the bride and groom.. We also had a colour co-ordinated handmade wish bracelet, (by the bride) Which everyone wore. (mine lasted 5 weeks) After the meal we retired to the lounge, whilst the room was rearranged/ dressed for the evening do... The DJ was a little loud for the oldies amongst us, but we sat chatting in the lounge..
In here there was the post box for wedding cards, a wish tree for you to write advice messages and good wishes, a message book and an unusual picture frame (Ikea) where you add a good wish message on a small wooden heart, and slot in the hole at the top of the frame, so the newly weds can hang up a 'picture' momento of their guests who shared their special day.
The evening food was a pig roast..again lovely..with soft baps, gravy, apple sauce, stuffing, crackling etc...
There was also a sweet cart I'm told (some how I missed this).
For anyone whose disabled you can drive the car up to the front door to save walking too far.. Toilets etc are spotless.
Seats in the lounge are very comfortable.
The staff here were lovely...nothig too much trouble... A great day ...Thank you !!

We got married at Rowton Castle on 17th July 2017. We wanted a fairy tale wedding and it sure was delivered. There are no negatives to say about this venue, staff. or service delivered . From the moment it was booked it ran like clockwork. We arrived the day before our wedding and was able to chill out and enjoy the whole experience. The entire day was completely flawless. Everything was exactly as we had discussed in the many months leading up to the wedding and on the day itself. The little touches they did for us not on any itinerary touched us ( a flower had come off my wedding cake on the journey up and was dealt with instantly . I couldn't get out of my dress in the evening due to not packing a crochet hook to undo the many buttons , a mere mention and they were there to help me out of it. For me personally the friendliness and smiley face of everyone we met made it a day for us all to remember. The food during the pre reception, Wedding breakfast and breakfast next morning was faultless. I can only thank Rowton for giving us the day we had envisioned . We will definitely be coming back in the future
