WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY...
I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone at Lumley castle who contributed to making my birthday lunch on Saturday, 15th July such a lovely occasion. All of my guests commented on how well organised everything was and how much they enjoyed the food. Kian O'Hara looked after us very well and did everything he could to make sure that things ran smoothly.
Afternoon Tea at Lumley Castle. Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon at Lumley Castle. After being in the North East for 14 years, although my husband had stayed at your hotel, I had never been to the hotel. The group (21 of us) were absolutely bowled over by how beautiful the Castle was and how helpful and friendly the staff were and the amazing afternoon tea.... not to mention the Scarbrough Room. If we ever get the chance again we will certainly visit - if not try to stay. Once again many, many thanks. Some of the group now want to leave the North West and go to live in the North East!!
We had an absolutely phenomenal day! Thanks to you and all the staff who were brilliant and friendly. Grateful thanks to June in particular whose attentiveness was most gratifying. Not only did the Castle impress our relatives from USA but the overall presentation - the beautifully dressed table and all the other trimmings. Thanks to you once more for all your hard work in making our Golden Wedding and our Grand-daughter’s 21st so memorable.
We had our wedding here.... From start to finish, it was just the most amazing, perfect day, better than we could of ever dreamed of! Most beautiful place ever, staff are amazing and nothing is too much trouble. However, Alison the wedding co ordinator has got to be the most fantastic wedding co ordinator ever!

She really is an asset to this venue! Thank you so much Alison and all staff at Lumley Castle for making our dreams come true xx
