This is a beautiful hotel. It was a school in the mid 1800's that is now a fully modern hotel. The staff are welcoming, friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was well done. The rooms are more average, but functional. The big star is the spa! The pool is very large by hotel standards and has a lap swimming lane that is adequately long. There is a side area of the pool for children to play in and a very shallow end for very young children. The water is very clean. The hot tub can fit about four or five people and the water in hot tub is very clean (rare in my hotel experience). There also is a lovely sauna and steam room. My two twelve year old children and I spent over three hours enjoying the facilities. The location of hotel is excellent and just a quick 10 minute walk up to the castle. The car park at castle was full with long line of cars to get in, so I was glad the hotel was walking distance. Lovely restaurants close by the hotel. We ate at the Kilted Kangaroo (Australian pub) and quite enjoyed our meal. The car park at hotel is large and secure. Watch out what floor your room is on, though, the elevator does not go to the second floor (only the third) and I had to carry all our bags up and down the stairs. But over all, very nice hotel in excellent location and staff was very pleasant. Treat yourself to a day at a first class spa!
