Great balance of modern comforts in an historic setting. We arrived late at night and couldn't wait to wake up and see the views - which we did from our lovely and comfy bed!! Great cafe attached too 😊

Stayed two nights here. Had a wonderful time. The Castle in itself is just beautiful. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. We felt so relaxed the whole time. We stayed in two different rooms and both were gorgeous. Really big and clean. Breakfast was simple but just what you wanted. Definitely could have stayed longer!

The Castle is an amazing building with a rich history in a beautiful setting overlooking a beautiful lake. Sharon, the young lady who looked after us explained that she and her husband had recently taken over the business and were in the process of refurbishing the rooms. Although we are from the UK, we were travelling with friends from Australia...
