Beautiful building in a nice quiet rural location. All of the staff were very helpful and their attention to detail and levels of service were excellent. A special mention for Auriel who was very helpful. I had booked a room on the wing. The room was a little smaller than I expected but non the less it was clean and... More

Well what a disappointment. The place looked great. What could be better than an overnight stay in a castle. Accommodation was top rate, facilities great. Dinner lovely but the staff were truly appalling. Breakfast was a shambles. Continental breakfast cold and full English burnt. We got the impression the place was under threat of closure from the attitude we received.... More

Stayed 6/3/15 to 8/3/15. We were in "Victoria Room" Huge high fourposter !! Check in was quick and efficient. Breakfast on both days was faultless, as was service. There was a wedding on Saturday, but we were not disturbed at all. First visit, but definitely not our last !! If you are looking for pristine boutique B &B don't bother.... More

Hotel appears as Castle in most pictures but unless you book a special room you will stay in a small room in a modern wing like a travel lodge off from the feature building. Breakfast is nice and starts early enough for business travellor. Range of beers in the bar is poor unless you likecarling or Guniess from a can... More

Dear Markmr G, We do offer many different types of accommodation. We have rooms in the wing which is an annex adjoining the castle, rooms in the main castle, as well as four posters, four poster suites and jacuzzi suites. The room you booked clearly stated that you required a room in the annex building. The modern extension is our... More

I have stayed in a number of Best Western hotels and have yet to be disappointed, this one is no exception. Upon arrival on Tuesday evening I noted that the TV in my room wasn't working, but after a quick chat with reception I had someone trying to fix it, and when this was not possible I was allocated a...

The hotel was overall very good value for money. Check in staff were most helpful even though I was late arriving. I took a meal in the bar and although a number of items were sold out the meal I had was of a very high quality. Staff all round were very very helpful. Highly recommended.
