This would have been 5 stars because the castle and grounds are fantastic and very well kept. However the cafe facilities cannot cope with the amount of people. Not enough staff, 20 minutes wait for an ice cream, only one person serving, half and hour...More

As far as I could see, you could be there all day as there is a vast area of open gardens and lakeside walk.
