The World’s Most Captivating Castle Hotels

To mark the reopening of the breathtaking Ashford Castle in Mayo, Ireland – which dates back to as early as 1228 – The Telegraph put together a spectacular list of the most awe-inspiring castle hotels all over the world. After an expansive round of renovations on its 82 guestrooms, the Ashford Castle, stands on 350 acres of woodland and features sprawling, magical displays of early 13th century craftsmanship.

The list features the Skibo Castle in Dornoch, Scotland, a private members-only club, wedding venue, and cozy hotel; the Castle hotel in Dalian in northeast China, modeled after the Neuschwanstein and other classical European palaces; the Balfour Castle located on the Orkney Islands, robed in painted silks and elaborately decorated bedrooms; the Schlosshotel Kronberg in Frankfrut dating back to the late 1800s; the Chateau Frontenac hotel in Quebec, a national landmark first built to serve travelers using Canada’s first-ever rail network; and dozens more.
