Dark, gothic and thoroughly theatrical...if you can get a room – the Witchery is the place to indulge yourself
Hidden in a collection of buildings on Castlehill, the Witchery by the Castle has just eight fabulously original and indulgent suites. Frequently described as one of the world's most romantic destinations and as one of the seven wonders of the hotel world by Cosmopolitan, each has its own unique quirks and charms.
Whichever suite you choose you'll find glamour, indulgence, luxury and roll top baths for two.
Rates of £325 - £360 per suite per night includes a bottle of Champagne, cookies, mineral water, turn down service, newspaper and our renowned breakfast hamper served in your suite each day.
In a world of identikit could-be-anywhere hotels, thank goodness for the Witchery.
