“Plan on having lunch here.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

Very inexpensive tour. A nice way to spend a few hours. You can take as many pictures as you want and wander around at your own pace. We had lunch in the tea room and it was wonderful. I would go again and again.

“Interesting museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Enjoyed seeing the castle, and really appreciated the special exhibit honoring the firefighters. Very appropriate since we were there just after the wildfire.

“Silly fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

We enjoyed the Castle - was interesting from an architectural view - but a little silly at times with all the old fashioned things. Some may think these things are historically important - I'm not into that - but it was a nice display.

“I am rating the tea room only.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Tea room is awful.
Don't even bother. Bread on sandwich and the chips could easily have been purchased at WalMart.
Service bad. They need a lot more work before they can claim to be a tea room, much less a tea room in a castle which is the advertisement.
After this didn't bother touring the "castle".

“Cool Piece of History”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

The Miramont Castle also houses a Fire Fighters Museum as well. Best of all...... it's HAUNTED! You can take pictures around the castle (that used to be a sanitorium) and when you develop your photos, you might be lucky enough to spot some orbs. Ask desk about orbs when you visit and they can tell you about all the phenomena that occurs around the house.
