The Place

Life goes at a slower pace in this rural part of England and Hereford is the ideal country town: tight-knit, accessible and tranquil, yet with world-class attractions in its fine cathedral, Mappa Mundi and Chained library. Castle House is a Grade II listed town house whose charming gardens overlook the old castle moat. The Cathedral and shops are nearby, yet there is absolute quiet: no traffic noise, just birdsong and the quack of ducks. We can think of few lovelier, or better sited, city hotels in Britain.

Past the pillared entrance, you find an impressive hall and staircase with the reception tucked neatly out of sight. To one side: a private room for guests and to the other a spacious restaurant and sitting room with French doors, all of which open on to the pretty garden where the hotel’s new, waterside restaurant and bar overlooks the old Hereford Castle’s moat. All the rooms are full of light.

Upstairs are 15 luxury guest rooms of various shapes and sizes, all with ensuite bathrooms. The hotel has been revamped over the last few years, including 8 new rooms in No.25, a townhouse less than a minute’s walk from the main house.

The management is excellent and the food imaginative, served by head chef Gabor Katona. New for 2021, Castle House’s waterside restaurant and bar makes for a serene setting, whether you’re enjoying one round of drinks or a three-course meal.
