My husband and I like to escape on weekends to different types of properties and when this "castle" deal came up, we thought it to be an adventure. Little did we know, it would turn out to be a spooky adventure. First of all, getting to the castle proved to be quite a trek, it was way out in nowhere... More

my hubby and I stayed on a groupon for two nights. Our friends and their kids decided to join us as well! We were in the Queen's suite they had two regular rooms. Upon arrival we were greeted by our gracious host, David who was a pleasure to work with! We had some issues in the regular rooms and he... More

From the drive up to the castle to the gracious staff, every part of our stay was wonderful. We took a tour before leaving and were simply in awe of the beauty and craftsmanship in every one of the main rooms. Wish we got to see some of the other guest rooms. We stayed in a gatsby room which was... More

I want to start off by saying that I have stayed here multiple times and I will stay here again, because the suites are beautiful and the grounds (the NJ Botanical Gardens) are breathtaking. There are really no other "castles" in the area, so if you want to stay in a castle in northwestern New Jersey, this is it. Parking... More

I love this place! I've been here many times, in all seasons over the last few years. The Castle is gorgeous. I've been to and stayed at castles in other countries and I like this one best :) So many cool rooms to wander through and the gardens are very nice. Ok, so it's not really hundreds of years old....

We were invited to wedding ceremony on 11/29/2014. This place had a nice charm. On the first day room temperature was low (and we had to wait for a hot water). They kept heater low during a week. However, on the second day, we didn't experience any issues. Room had a decent size. The walk to the parking lot was... More

Room cost 250$. For this, I am paying for the privilege of staying in a castle. It doesn't include hot water, a warm room, or reasonable parking. There was a constant alarm ringing in the kitchen. The charm can only go so far if you are worried about the most basic of amenities. If "the cold never bothered you anyway,"... More

First, I will start with the reasons to love the Castle at Skylands Manor. The grounds and building itself are truly spectacular. Additionally, the rooms are charming and the setting romantic. I'm also not sure why everyone complained about breakfast, it is what you'd get at almost any hotel that serves an expanded continental. It's a plus, that staff were... More

Yes, the suites are lovely but window air conditioners with vents cut into windows still up in October with very little heat makes for a cold room. Walls are thin with a connecting door into our bedroom meant we could hear the TV from the next room quite easily. Would love to have some money reinvested in this place to... More

Every room in the castle is a delight for the eyes! Absolutely beautiful! The caretaker, Dave was more than cordial; he went above & beyond to accommodate us. He gave meaning to the word "hospitality". We stayed in the Knight's Room, which is on the first floor and has a private bath. The bed was not only beautiful, but very... More
