We had a wonderful visit. We decided on this special hotel to reunite with family after Covid separations. While the restaurant and spa were closed, we knew in advance, so we planned for ordering in, walking around the grounds, and and just relaxing in the spacious, gorgeous rooms. Luckily we were here on a Saturday night and could enjoy Jorge’s amazing handmade drinks at the bar! Literally the best margarita I’ve ever had. What a beautiful hotel. The manager was also a delight! He took us on a private tour of the castle. This is my second visit and I hope to come back again when I can enjoy the pool, spa and restaurant. Highly recommend for a magical night away.

We stayed here about 5 years ago in the summer and it was fantastic. We stayed for New Years 2020 and had a great experience. The hotel outside is a bit run down but with everything going on in the world this is to be expected. The rooms are very nice and clean. Staff was very helpful and attentive. I can’t wait to stay here once this pandemic is done.

I would NOT recommend this hotel. Rude & unaccommodating staff, from the front desk agent all the way up to the COO, Ken Utsumi & manager Jiro Sato. Stay far away from this property, such a disappointment.

This review is written by my husband. We went to the Castle Hotel & Spa for Valentines Day. We live relatively close and have been to Equus Restaurant previously but never stayed overnight. So we were both looking forward to a nice romantic time at one of the top rated hotels. Unfortunately things didn't go as planned. I planned a spa treatment for my wife and we had a beautiful Junior suite and in room dining. We arrived mid afternoon and check in went smoothly. The room was gorgeous, spa was perfect. Thereafter is when things went array. I called in advance to make sure there were vegetarian options for room service and was assured there was. Went for a drink at their small but cozy bar. The maitre d brought my wife a freshly printed vegetarian room service menu. (we knew this because they had a price fixed menu for Valentines Day weekend and we were their first customers). When we got back to our room I noticed the heat wasn't working in the bathroom (it was a very cold night). Then ... Called receptionist and they sent a mechanic up to the room. Thereafter we ordered room service. 10 minutes later mechanic showed few minutes later restaurant (Michelin Star) called and said they did not have the only main course vegetarian option on the menu (cauliflower steaks). How do you not have cauliflower? How could that be if they just printed the menu and it was the very first vegetarian serving for the whole weekend? My wife just ordered the appetizer and extra bread room service came and they got my dinner wrong, they brought fish which I did not order. They apologized and as they were leaving I reminded them to bring bread They came back up with two bite sized pieces of bread, but at least the presentation was nice We started our nice romantic dinner with the mechanic fixing the heater. Mechanic 'fixed' the heater, left and about 15 minutes later I went to use the bathroom and it still wasn't working. Cold air was blowing out of the vents. How disappointed, I planned a nice romantic rose peddled bath. Top it all off, while we were eating there was a 'stink bug' crawling on the rug. Since it was Valentines Day and only there for an overnight we kind of laughed everything off and enjoyed our evening. We left very early the next morning skipping a planned brunch. My husband relayed everything to the manager and she was sympathetic and gave 20% off bill and said she would speak to the Equus Chef and head manager. For the money we paid and for a luxury historic hotel we were pretty disappointed. We do travel frequently so we realize things happen and it just was one of those things. But we were mainly disappointed with the lack of follow up by management especially after we filled out survey honestly but very respectfully. No one called or emailed us. Yes it is a beautiful hotel, but just because of the lack of follow up by management we will not go there again.

For what they charge, I don't think it's worth the money. First, bear in mind that the cost of the room changes based on the occupancy size, which I find to be a very quaint habit that most hotels no longer practice. (I did notice in my recent travel to Japan that they actually practice this there... not sure if there's any relevance here.) The food was quite delicious, and the spa was good but again, not worth the money. I get massages quite regularly and for the price, I would seek elsewhere. At one point, we left our room key card in the room. We went to the front to ask for a new card, and the Japanese lady behind the counter was unwilling until the manager got involved and gave us a new card. I can't begin to explain what happened there. All in all, I would prefer to go to another hotel.
