I can't speak highly enough of this hotel. If you go wanting to feel like you are a guet in a medieval castle, you won't be disappointed, but don't expect the polish of a big corporate hotel, which for me, would have diminished the experience. This is an independent business which has kept the castle in its medieval glory. We stayed in the state rooms and the Russel suite, both of which were lovely. There was a good variety of breakfast choices and the dinner menu was limited to allow for freshly cooked food with local ingredients. Staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. I am hoping to go back for my birthday - I can't recommend this enough. Thank you to all the staff who made it a wonderful stay, but most especially the gentleman I assume is the manager. Apologies, if you see this, that I never asked your name!GOOGLE REVIEW

Lovely castle stay, period furniture in the rooms and well maintained, only dropping one star due to lack of window in the room we had (in the old servants quarter, cheaper rooms likely to be in this part so if you want windows be prepared to spend a bit more) yet had a skylight window which could not be blocked (no curtain or blind) so we were up with the sun. Also no TV, not a deal breaker but would have come prepared if known in advance, though likely that was my oversight in not reading the details thoroughly. Appleby is a lovely castle and town and the historical tour is charged extra but worth it.GOOGLE REVIEW

Appleby is currently in the process of being refurbished so the grounds aren't much to look at. The Norman Centre is ok but fairly small and as they were short staffed when we visited, we were somewhat hurried around and didn't get the chance to read all the information. They have a good kids audio tour though. Didn't do the castle tour.GOOGLE REVIEW

We have waited for some time for the castle keep to open... the children were besides themselves with excitement when I told them that the Norman Centre was up and running, and that we'd be able to visit. It did not disappoint. Very informative and interesting displays, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and tremendous views from the top. Well done for managing to maintain beautiful Appleby Castle, not an easy task I am sure. Lovely little wooden fort and play area has been added near the entrance, which the little ones loved. 100% worth a visit.GOOGLE REVIEW
