Castle House Hotel Information


The Castle House is an architectural gem, built in the 1730s yet incorporating part of the Norman city walls, the Roman Worthgate and the only remaining section of the original town moat. Here, you are just a few minutes short walk from the whole of the medieval city: the magnificent Cathedral; the maze of winding streets and the romantic ruins of the Castle and city walls… Book your room at the Castle, with both history and convenience will combine to make your stay both memorable and enjoyable. When you step inside the Castle House, you will be enraptured and ensnared by the relaxing and homely ambience. The rooms are generously proportioned, with high ceilings and large Georgian windows bathing you in light, many offering spectacular views of the Castle and the Great Cathedral itself. There is plenty of space to unwind… All rooms are ensuite and all are decorated to the highest standards. Each room provides for your every need including tea/coffee making equipment, tv. to make your stay peaceful and trouble free. As well as the magnificence of your rooms, our comfortable residents lounge offers you a wonderful place to plan your day or unwind after a day’s sightseeing. Outside, our secluded private walled garden, containing the only remaining original section of the city’s once great moat, provides you with a pleasant place to reflect upon your day and also onsite parking so your vehicle is nestled securely within our hotel walls (the parking is subject to availability) Sleeping in Eighteenth Century rooms, astride a medieval wall, and with views over one of England’s most precious cities, you are staying in a special place. In the morning, your continental breakfast and buffet selection is served in surely one of the grandest dining rooms in Kent. This is the Castle House experience you will remember again and again.
