Excellent location and very nice property. The staff are great and make you feel welcome. I booked a deluxe double as it was on offer, and it is very comfortable and spacious. Maybe the rooms are due for a refurb but that would be my only negative, but they are clean and tidy, it is an old castle after all,...

Moved out of a horrendous hotel and into this one. Such a pleasant experience. Lovely room, nice bathroom, welcoming bar & a great location. My room was very spacious and comfortable. Restaurant a bit old so went out for supper but would definitely recommend.

We hold 4 meetings a year in The Castle, the staff are always very accommodating, friendly and polite, the facilities are excellent and the atmosphere and location is second to none. There are various bars and restaurants in the hotel to choose from, the food is well know to be one of the best in the area.

I booked the Castle as the location was so central whilst the building having character. Great parking facilities unfortunately they have had to put a recent charge of £5 per night due to misuse. But they take your registration number so why do you still have to pay when your a resident? Seems a bit unfair. Reception staff were friendly...

Yes, perhaps grand many years back but seriously in need of refurb. Staff are friendly and food is okay, but..... Very cold rooms with draft coming through windows, very worn carpets and furniture. Bed certainly in urgent need of new mattress. The lights in my bathroom were not working and I had no hot water... If all that is of...

Went for afternoon tea here, which was lovely and they catered really well for the different eating likes in our group! Lovely sandwiches and scones - but no cake!!! There were some nice enough little mini desert like things, which were incredibly sweet. Weirdly the vegetarian had cake - but not the rest of us that had the usual basic...

Very disappointed with the managements attitude after celebrating the wife's birthday at the castle bow restaurant due to brazz being refurbished, all our party hung their coats on the one stand outside the restaurant as there was no where to put them safe inside the restaurant, when we was ready to leave we found that the wife's new grey coat...

This would be a five star review but for the fact that my most recent visit coincided with the temporary closure of the excellent fine dining restaurant. My room was fabulous, as was the service generally. A certain amount of noise from voluble business types attending conferences and a somewhat vulgar £5 parking charge prevent me from granting this hotel,...

Attracted by a dinner, bed and breakfast offer, my friend and I gave it a go. The staff were very attentive but overall it failed to hit the spot. A stained carpet in our room, a dinner that was just about adequate, together with a bottle of supermarket-quality wine, and a help-yourself breakfast with watery scrambled eggs. Frankly, we have...

Four of us went for afternoon tea. Wonderful choice of teas and a lovely spread consisting of scones with cream and jam of course, finger sandwiches of white and brown bread, various cakes and a dessert each. A thoroughly decadent and enjoyable time was enjoyed by all.
