The entry point into the castle and the grounds were stunning. Expectations are immediately raised driving up to check in. On entry, the mood continues but we crashed to ground when we were shown our room. The room was a courtyard room, which we knew when we booked however it looked nothing like the one on their website. We were later told that the one on the website was actually a suite. We asked if it was possible to see a different room and they showed us one in the courtyard on the second level. It was much better and closer to what we had expected in that it had the stone walls and the exposed beams. It still looked nothing like the one on the website but was quite nice.
For Wifi, there is none in any of the rooms and the connection they do have in the common areas is very slow and very unreliable. If you need to be connected this isn't the place for you. They do have one computer in the lobby for guest use but it actually has a slot to place money in it to buy time on it and it costs extra to print anything. Very odd for somewhere purporting to be a luxury experience.
It is clear their bread and butter is the wedding business and they tend to focus on that. We were told they have weddings every day of the week and as you can imagine, it can get noisy near the main building.
The food was good as was the restaurant service.
