We stayed here as part of our tour with Adventures by Disney. The rooms were large and comfortable. The service was professional and polite. My only complaint would be the blankets that were used on the beds instead of a more comfortable down comfortable. Breakfast was included and was exceptional. They offered a very nice afternoon tea in the lounge which was tasty. There are many amenities, some are free(large outdoor chess set was fun) and others are at some cost. Of the ones we tried, the Hawk Walk was fantastic. My teenage daughter was amazed as we all were. The ride thru the grounds on the pony cart with Sean was fun as well. We did the Teddy Bear picnic for one with extra settings. There was lots of food--good selection and even fun in he rain. The only disappointing activity was the golf cart. We toured the facility but didn't realizes that we were allowed to use the cart path. Ad a golfer, my husband said he would not want someone driving past as he was hitting. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are clean and food is plentiful if a bit expensive. Great for a celebratory occasion. How can you go wrong with staying at a castle!
