I stayed here as part of a wedding party last year and had a wonderful time. The staff were friendly and helpful, and really couldn't do enough for us. We had a beautiful meal the night before the wedding in the dining room, and I noticed that it was full of locals and non-residents (always a good sign). Breakfast in the dining room was good, but one minor quibble, the orange juice served is made from concentrate. I can't understand how a chef who produces such lovely food can send out "plastic" juice! The wedding meal was one of the best I've ever had, and the service was efficient. I liked the cosy atmosphere of the funtion room and that the staff genuinely wanted us to have a great time.
So far so good, but I can see how other reviewers had negative views of the hotel. The rooms in the castle itself are beautiful, as is the bridal suite, but some of the communal areas and other bedrooms were a little shabby and I feel were in need of an update. This castle has bags of potential but I think it needs to have some money spent on the decor to live up to its 4 star rating.
