Your home for the farewell night – Leeds Castle
You are in for a treat! Albatross Tours have chartered the entire castle for our exclusive use for the evening and overnight to ensure you experience this breathtaking castle to the fullest. With a butler, wait staff and a footman available for your service you will enjoy an unforgettable experience at Leeds Castle.
It is important to stress that Leeds Castle is NOT a hotel. It is, as its name suggests, a genuine castle. There is no hotel room service and nor are there any other guests. There is no hotel bar, but there is a drinks trolley. There are no hotel porters, instead the footmen will ensure your bags are taken to your rooms. The Butler acts as the major-domo to a team of white gloved wait staff ensuring service is always entirely correct.
Your rooms for the night will either be in the Battlement (servants) rooms or the Staterooms. Rooms are allocated by Leeds Castle on the arrival day.
There are 7 Battlement (servants) rooms. Beautifully renovated and still using quality, period style furniture. These converted servants’ living quarters are spacious and the bathrooms have all been completely modernised. Each room tells a story and is sensitively decorated in keeping with the role of the original servants who lived there. These rooms have limited views.
There are 10 State rooms. They are the largest of all the rooms available, they have a grand style with 20’s style period piece furniture and retain the original, older style bathrooms.
Note: there is NO lift in the Castle. The State rooms are on the first floor. The Battlement (Servants) rooms are on the second floor.
