After staying in many Best Western Hotels we found this one of the most disappointing. The castle itself is beautiful both from the approach and inside the communal area with a sweeping staircase and stunning stained glass windows a comfortable sitting room and excellent restaurant but unfortunatelly that was where it ended. The room was very basic and in need of immediate repair which made it quite miserable as the colour scheme was very uninspiring in a sludgy brown and beige. The room was warm but not particularly comfortable and we suffered all night from a noise which sounded like some sort of fan which vibrated on the radiator in the room. The bathroom was large and clean but again could do with a little TLC to bring it up to Best Western standard. The staff were nice and attentive especially in the restaurant where we had a beautiful meal the food was faultless the decor beautiful but the whole place lacks atmosphere we did not feel relaxed but constantly aware we were guests in someone's hotel.
