The good: The room was splendid; luxurious, decorated to a high standard and well appointed. The views out to the castle were lovely. The bar was nicely done, although a bit heavy on the mirrors around the walls but only offered a pretty standard drinks selection. The bar food was ok and breakfast was average. The hotel didn't charge for phone calls either which is refreshing.
The bad: A smattering of miserable joyless staff, notably the manager who managed to take the shine off a nice trip. Some staff were very nice. This one element means the high prices charged are too high, otherwise it might be worth what you pay.
