The luxurious new THANN™ Sanctuary Spa is an oasis of peace and tranquility where a holistic treatment approach aims to rediscover inner physical and mental wellness.

Nice Saturday brunch.

Surprised our daughter with a brunch at the castle. Very nice experience. Everything was pretty good. Least favorite were the desserts.

We were invited to an intimate family party at Equus (within the Castle Hotel & Spa) to celebrate our niece's first reception of the Holy Eucharist. We had dined there before as a couple, but this was our first experience at Equus in a group setting. First of all, there were a number of children in the party, and we... More

To be fair we were only there for Breakfast. The grounds, the facility and the staff were all excellent. We were 10 for Mother's Day Breakfast. Eggs, Fruit, Cheese, Pastries, and Breakfast meats. Very good, beautiful display. Felt like royalty

simple fare but amazingly put together. The hibachi wrapped in asparagus and wagyu beef was incredible. Decent wine list with some aged wines and very, very reasonable prices. The service was over the top awesome. Great evening :)

For special occasions, you can't beat this beautiful, albeit extremely pricey restaurant in The Castle at Tarrytown. Just about every table was celebrating some sort of occasion (birthday, anniversary)! The food was beautifully presented, although a few of the dishes seemed ill-conceived. The service was terrific, and they have a great (also pricey) wine list. The dark wood, with the... More
