“Waste of money....”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

On the plus side, this place is secluded. However, the first thing you notice is the half mile winding driveway that leads up to the castle is in terrible condition; full of pot holes and washed out the entire length. Next, we enter to check in and the lady at the counter was very curt and did not make us feel welcome at all. She went to great lengths to make sure we understood the "rules" of our stay and what is expected of the guests. The grounds were once immaculate. You could tell that they were one time kept pristine and were beautiful. However, the flowerbeds are overrun with weeds. Several places in the brick walkways were covered with mud, which you had to walk around. We stayed in the "Miller" which is off of one of the towers. The first thing you notice here is that the door to the tower is broken, the roof has leaks and the walls have not been repaired. A broken air conditioner half hangs from the wall. The room itself was beautiful and tastefully decorated...once. But, the furniture is dirty and torn and much is in disrepair. Half the lighting in the room didn't work and several of the switches were broken. The fireplace hearth had a corner of the stonework broken away that had not been fixed. They have placed a noisy, small window AC in the room rather than fix the broken one. We stayed two nights (why? stupid I guess.) The only amenities in the room were two bottles of shampoo and two hotel size soaps. In room coffee service with two sugars, two creamers, two sweet and low, two hot chocolates, and four packets of the worst coffee ever. There were bottles of water and pop in the room for an additional $2 each. The maid did not refill the in room condiments for the coffee and they threw out one of the two tiny piece of hotel soap, leaving us with the half used one in the shower. TV.... they had direct TV, which was okay, but I gave up trying to find anything other than infomercials. Thankfully we brought a couple DVDs for our late night entertainment. The swimming pool building was so hot inside, it was unbearable, and the hot tub looked disgusting. We passed on that altogether. Continental breakfast was as per any hotel or inn anywhere. The exception were the other guest acted like vultures, scrambling over a road kill. There was only one toaster and one waffle maker for about 20 guests. We gave up and drove to McDonald's. The restaurant however, was very good. I had the "Castle Strogonoff", $14, which was delicious. My wife had the 12 ounce ribeye, which she said was good if just over priced at $22. But it was clean and the service was excellent. Overall, 2 nights cost a bit over $400, not counting the restaurant. I wouldn't recommend staying here for half the price.

Room Tip: Save your money and stay in a Bed and Breakfast.

Should have listened to all the negative reviews, they are absolutely correct. The grounds have completely eroded. We should have know what we were in for when our car almost bottomed out in one of the pot holes on our way up the drive to check in. The waterfall pictured on the web-site doesn't look like it's actually worked in years. The rooms were old, dated, and not particularly clean. Walls are paper thin so you can almost have a conversation with the people in the room next door. This place is on it's way down the tubes, save your money.

I will begin with the positives and there are quite a number of them. The property is nestled in the woods and is completely charming. You feel completely secluded from the outside world, which is exactly what we needed after our wedding. We ate at the on-site restaurant and the food was FANTASTIC! The private entrances and overall set-up really make for a nice getaway. A few disappointing factors; the rooms are clean, but not "sanitized" feeling. Our bed was probably like 30+ years old... we had to sleep at the foot of the bed. Other than that, we really did like the overall atmosphere and it would not take THAT much work to get it up to "standards" I do recommend a visit as it is very unique.

Grounds look terrible they need to take the time to clean it up. The lady who works the early shift is very rude. I'd say over priced to stay there. Hocking hills is way better at the same price. The breakfast they give is ok. The waffle iron needs cleans doesn't look like they have cleaned it in years. The pool room was so hot you didn't even want to be in there. It felt better outside then the pool room. The drinks in the rooms were 2 dollars a drink total rip off take your own drinks and snacks. The food at their restaurant was very good I do have to say and prices were good. The tv there went out several times because of the storms. You can't enjoy fresh air in your room because there are no screens for the windows. Also make sure on the room not all rooms are in the castle. Vending machines there are triple the value so don't buy anything there. Overall don't waste your time there.

My boyfriend and I planned a two night stay over memorial day. Sadly we chose to leave after 1 night. First iI'll state the positives, our room (suite #4) was beautiful, the grounds were well maintained and lovely and the front desk staff was friendly..The bed was comfortable with decent linens, not the best I've seen in a hotel but certainly not the worst either. The overall charm of the hotel would overshadow many minor complaints (ie, 6 blown lightbulbs in the room including the bedside lamp, dirty shower door and only 1 soap, no conditioner or lotion provided), our 1major complaint is the restaurant. The sunday before memorial day it was open from 5 til 7:30. We were not aware of this (no notice given at the front desk or in the room) and showed up for dinner at 7:45ish. The door was still unlocked but a paper posted on the front door stated the limited dining hours. Why bother having a restaurant at all if on a holiday weekend it's open for 2 1/2 hours? Next they do not sell alcohol on Sunday. Not normally a big deal but as we were there to celebrate his birthday it was not what we were looking for. From what our server told us (we did stay for appetizers and water) the restaurant is usually open for only a few hours and the hours are constantly changing. Since there is not much else nearby these are important details that could be shared on the website. Also as a person in the fine dining industry the restaurant was a major disappointment. Plastic place mats on white linens, farmhouse style tables and chairs, fake flowers as far as the eye could see and a menu that seemed to include a majority of heat and serve fare. If a good weekend away includes good food and a few drinks, this is not the place for you. When we checked out early the front desk clerk did return our money for the second night which was an unexpected and pleasant surprise.

This castle far out weighed my imagination! The pictures on the website doesn't do it justice! Very clean, beautifully decorated. The staff went far and beyond to make us comfortable and to make sure we had what we needed day or night. They gave us directions to get where ever we wanted to go. There is a restaurant on the grounds. This is reservation only and they close at 8 pm. No one delivers to the castle, so take the advise of the front desk and make reservations. The pool house is awsome. A large pool, hot tub, and an extra activity room with a pool table and seating. Also, at 10 pm, everything must be quite. I loved that! This is one of the best experiences we have ever had! Thank you to the staff!

We stayed for 2 nights in the Macbeth cottage. Very charming place however there were 2 issues. One being the toilet would not flush most of the time without having to mess with it and the other is after one of us showered we ran out of hot water. Next morning, no hot water as well. My birthday weekend was tainted by these things because it caused tension and an evening ruined. Nice place but it does need alot of maintenance. Will not be going back.
