Castle House Hotel is a beautifully-restored Grade II listed Georgian townhouse just moments from the ancient Cathedral in the heart of historic Hereford. Choose from 24 rooms and suites all individually decorated and with antique furnishings, including eight superb rooms and suites at No25, a townhouse just seconds from the main hotel. Independently owned, it’s no surprise that Castle House has won numerous accolades. Its dedicated staff are warm and welcoming, and what sets it apart is the close attention to detail – little touches everywhere to make sure your stay is unforgettable.
Castle House is well-known throughout the region for its fine food and excellent wines, served in the Castle House Restaurant, with the emphasis on local ingredients. In fact some produce on the menu originates from hotel owner David Watkins’ Ballingham Hall Farm. Mouthwatering menus are conjured up by Head Chef Claire Nicholls , one of the best female chefs in the UK. The Castle Bar and Bistro is perfect for more informal and light lunches; on warmer days, sample the cuisine, as well as coffee and Hereford afternoon teas, from the peaceful Terrace which overlooks the castle moat.
The ground floor Cavalier Suite is ideal for guests with mobility difficulties, with ramp access, grab rails, a walk-in shower and French windows opening directly onto the garden.
Ideal for stays when you have business in Hereford, relaxing breaks and family stays, Castle House is the perfect location for exploring Hereford’s magnificent Cathedral, the Mappa Mundi and Chain Library, the Forest of Dean, Brecons and the beautiful Wye Valley.
