We hadn't intended on staying in a castle on our trip but our travel agent suggested it & got us one night here (a Thurs night, weekends are either booked long in advance or are extremely expensive). It's not what I'd really call a "castle" but it does look like one & it's really kind of more like a very large manor house. But close enough for us Yanks! We had a lovely room with a view of the grounds behind the house, large bed, nice big bathroom. I'd never even seen or heard of an electric towel rack that warms your towels before we stayed here. Nice touch. We opted for the big dinner in the dining room as a treat. Very expensive but worth it! Great food & service. My husband had the beef filet steak & he said it was the best steak he's ever had - & we grew up in the midwest! High praise indeed from a dedicated carnivore! Our dinner table overlooked the river as the sun set beyond it. What a wonderful evening & night. Couldn't afford to stay there all the time but for a special treat, it was terrific.
