Positive Reviews

You'll get a warm welcome

Staff at Best Western Walworth Castle will make you feel right at home from the moment you walk in the door Nothing is too much trouble for them and the quality of service they provide is truly excellent They offer impressive yet unobtrusive customer care.

Amazing surroundings

The hotel is set in a beautiful castle with stunning surrounding countryside The grounds are lovely to have a stroll around The building has bucketloads of character inside too.

There is plenty to see

Trains to and from Darlington are regular and Durham Castle is a really great place to visit as well and just 30 minutes away in the car.

Negative Reviews

Some of the rooms are tiny

The rooms certainly vary in size and appearance Some are so small that you'll have to shuffle around the bed, while the bathrooms are equally little Several of the bathrooms could do with a revamp as well.

Surfing the web is sometimes slow

The Wi-Fi, while free, can be pretty sluggish at times, particularly if you are in the annex building or towards the top of the hotel.

Get ready for a climb

As you would expect from a 12th Century castle, there's no lift at the hotel So if you are on the upper floors you can definitely expect a steep climb If you are carrying luggage or a push chair, this isn't ideal.

A bit of a spruce up would be good

Certain aspects of the hotel could do with a lick of paint and the furniture is often mismatched in guestrooms and ready to be replaced.
