Easy to find. Council car park is only £3 pounds for 24 hours and is locked secured at night. They upgraded us to a suite for the same price which was fantastic! Breakfast was ok. Didn't try the bar though. The Main town centre is 2 minutes away. Great location to explore the area. I used this hotel as a... More

Where do I start.... No parking facilities. Room is not very clean. Toilet seat won't stay up. OK if you are a lady I suppose. No cold water from tap in basin. Turn it on and a trickle comes out. Bed is a nasty cheap double with a hardwood type box base. I could hear occupants from above and to... More

We were moved to this hotel as its sister hotel didn't have hot water or heating. We checked in at The Castle at 10.45pm on a Saturday night, our room on 3rd floor was more tired than we were! Drab, and a complete mismatch of everything you could think of, but hey, it was only cheap....and then we found that... More

We've been to the Castle Hotel for Sunday lunch as part of a pre - booked party of 40 people. The food was stunning; the carvery was delicious and dessert was very nice - and reasonably priced. The service was another matter... The waiting staff only had to clear main plates, take orders and serve dessert. The orders for a... More

We apologize that you were not left feeling completely satisfied following your visit to the Castle Hotel.

On this occasion, serving 40 guests desserts without any pre-order there... More
