I only found this hotel because I left booking a room for our holiday until too late and my favourite B&Bs were full. Now I am glad we ended up in Castle Hotel.
I had read the reviews and was expecting a very small room with thin walls, slamming doors and a very noisy bar downstairs. We were shown into a room which was modern, fresh and clean. There was enough space for two and a really useful closet where we could put all our luggage and shoes and hang our clothes. There were even two white dressing gowns. They use quality bedlinen and towels. I am not sure if every hotel has to do room service but they do make up your room every day in this one.
Although I would have preferred to go get my own breakfast I opted for the optional breakfast as it was just so convenient to have it delivered to our front door in the morning and eat in bed.
I am quite tolerant to noise. That is one of the reasons I decided to book the room despite the reviews. But I can imagine that others may be bothered by it and want to get some sleep. At the end of the day that is what they pay for. We stayed on Sunday and Monday in a room just one floor above the pub and could not hear a thing from the pub downstairs. It was not busy though. I suggest you do not stay on Fridays and Saturdays if you mind the noise. And the hotel could reduce the rates on those days if it is a real problem.
So overall, it was very pleasant to stay at the Castle Hotel.
I hope you find this review helpful.
