Castle House Hotel

Castle House is a Grade II listed Georgian villa - once two townhouses - that has a commanding position at the top of Castle Street, with elegant, balconied architecture.
The hotel sits beside what remains of the old Hereford castle moat, now just a reminder of Hereford's once strategic importance. Hereford Castle was important in the 12th and 13th century but once the Edwardian conquest of Wales took place between 1272 and 1284, it lost its importance and fell into ruin. After the Civil War in the 17th century, the castle was demolished completely and the area landscaped for use by local people. The Castle Green, behind the hotel, now forms the heart of the city, and the old castle moat is overlooked by our garden.
