I have stayed twice now and would definitely return. The best rooms are in the castle and certainly worth the extra. The food in the bar and restaurant is superb with good size portions at reasonable prices. I would definitely stay again when in the area.

Dear Mike2trip, Thank you for your review. You are correct with the title of your review that all bedrooms are not equal! Being a 12th century castle, we take pride in the fact that all our rooms are indeed different shapes and sizes. Although we do always guarantee the room type you have booked, upgrades are sometimes available, but not... More

Hmmmm I have mixed feelings about what I'm about to say. We attended a family wedding on 9th may 2015 and arrived around 10.45 am after travelling 80 miles to attend now I do understand that with most hotels there is an early check in fee and after been told this I agreed to pay the £25 so as we...

Dear jogillies, Thank you for your review. I would like to address the issues you have raised about an early check charge. When guests stay in our hotel the check out time is 11am. In order for our housekeeping team to clean and check the rooms we offer a check in time of 2pm. If an earlier check in time... More

What a beautiful building and setting, but it's like they rest on their laurels a bit. Not the best Best Western I've stayed in, but not the worst either. If you need a couple of nights in th area, it will do. Limited restaurant menu.
