Stayed two nights to celebrate my wife's birthday. The whole experience was fantastic. Dinner was delicious set in an amazing setting and the staff were brilliant and very engaging. We stayed in the Dukes Robe chamber which was lovely. Thank you.

Wasn't sure whether to report under "hotel" or "restaurant" as we took pre-booked afternoon tea here. Notwithstanding this mini dilemma, the review is easy; everything was exemplary - nice range of very tasty snacks, excellent range of teas, beautiful room with open fire, and exemplary service.

I proposed this weekend at the castle and my fiance and myself found the whole experience very special and will always remember. It is a combination of elegance..luxury..magic ..history..and feeling of being at home..that is truly unique. The staff, especially at reception, were wonderful.
