I chose this B&B because of the wonderful pictures of the building and grounds online. We reserved one of the coach rooms, because it offered a separate bedroom with a sleep sofa, our own hot tub outside the door, and seemed to be a little more spacious than the typical rooms in the castle itself.
We were taken on a tour of the castle by a knowledgeable and friendly young woman, which was fascinating. however, when we went to bed that night, we had a difficult time getting comfortable. the sleep sofa was threadbare and the springs were almost visible - no cushioning at all. the queen size bed in the bedroom was a platform bed, with one thin mattress. there were also no bedside tables on which to place anything and no clock anywhere. in addition, the occupants in the room adjacent to ours left the tv on all night and it was clearly audible thru the walls.
breakfast the next day was wonderful and attractively presented in the gorgeous dining room by the large windows. there was a lot of construction going on, some of which we discovered was because of the creation of a wine cave and tasting room. i am sure this will add nicely to the attractiveness of the castle, but wondered why more effort and $$ wasn't being put into making the rooms more comfortable.
it was a memorable experience at a truly unique b&b, but not all the memories were good.
