Venue Testimonials

We got married here in May this year and omg it was absolutely perfect! The food was absolutely delicious and the fact that every single plate that came out was piping hot was just incredible. From the minute we booked to the day of our wedding, the staff couldn’t have done enough for us.

I booked Borthwick Castle exclusively for our end of year function in mid-December. Our entire group was completely blown away by the tremendous organisation, attentiveness of the staff throughout our stay and by the venue itself. The Castle is truly magnificent and well-appointed, the decor grand & majestic and the grounds beautiful.

Just returned home from my sister's wedding weekend at Borthwick Castle. It was the most incredibly perfect weekend in every way imaginable. Decor is stunning with no corners cut. Rooms are amazing with the comfiest beds. Food was incredible. However I would say that what really sets the venue apart is undoubtedly the staff and the standard of service we received.
