I have always wanted to spend the night in a castle and am thrilled this is the one I chose. What incredible service, from the moment you approach the front door! Being greeted by a maitre d' was so nice. Upon checking in, the staff takes your bags up to your room ahead of you, so they are perched in a cozy spot when you enter the room. A nice touch! The hosts will make dinner reservations for you or book events. Dinner at the restaurant was very nice and dining alone wasn't a problem as I was made to feel welcome and cared for. I wound up joining the couple beside me which I truly enjoyed. The food was out of this world good. After dinner, cordials by the piano with some traditional and modern music and plenty of crowd participation. Everyone enjoyed it. I missed breakfast the next morning to visit the School of Falconry, just a short walk from the castle, but still on the property. This was a very fun experience and the grounds walking there are beautiful. I would like to mention that while my room was decorated very pretty, a spectacular view, all of the guestroom amenities, the wall paper was coming down in various spots, so a little specific attention to that would be great for future. I would have also liked to have internet access in my room through my hand held device and not have to go to the lobby. I didn't find the wireless keyboard very user friendly, although I did try to use it. Small things, but noticeable. I would visit Ashford again!
