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

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

The staff were extremely friendly, the location couldn't have been better, the room was comfortable and the breakfast was absolutely incredible. My only criticisms would be the noise levels at night, as some of the nearby clubs can be pretty active.

What a moldy hotel! I will say only one thing that, I won't come this hotel ever again! Please don't waste your money. I could have gone to some other place. Owner should do something about the renovation of the hotel.

A ceiling from an old office block , mould , shoddy dangerous electrics, windows that are meant to but do not open constant smell of damp and a tv that did not work the list could go on . The rooms are so tired I personally think they should not be sold. The only upside to this awful place is... More
