We spent two nights B&B here recently and we will be back. Raymond, Mary and Irene are gracious and generous hosts who make you feel like you are their cherished and special guests. The house is genuinely old and authentic. The bed was extremely comfortable and the spotlessly clean room was spacious and beautifully fitted with lovely old furniture. Unfortunately... More

Focus first on the welcome. The owners are wonderful. The old description means just that, this is a 1600 country home filled with beautiful old antiques, old decor and an old ambience which makes it charming. If you are a traveler looking for generic, institutional perfection, this inn isn't for you. It's for the traveler wanting a unique experience and... More

We were met with a nice welcome and immediately shown to our room and offered tea at once. A great start. The room was very big and comfortable with fine fittings and a real 'country home' feel. Given the style and quality of the room decor, it was somewhat disappointing that some of what most consider standard features of a... More

We had an excellent stay at the Castle Grove and would highly recommend it. The owner Mary was so friendly and very interesting when talking about the house. The room was slightly cold but lovely. We also really appreciated the complimentary coffee and fruit bread that we got whilst sitting beside the roaring fire! We ate in the hotel restaurant... More

We had our wedding reception at Castle Grove in February 2014. Right from the first time we enquired, we were treated as royalty. The staff could not have done any more for us to make our wedding and our stay there any more perfect. The setting is beautiful in the grounds and the guest rooms are spectacular - the whole... More

We visited this country house hotel and restaurant in mid-December for my wife's birthday. The last time that we visited was around 2 years ago. The restaurant has certainly maintained its very high standards with regards to the quality food, ambience and service. We were not disappointed. We chose from the four-course festive menu and every course was extremely tasty... More
