My husband and I stayed in a family room in the 'cottage' section which sounds grander than it is in reality. The family room has a double bed and one single bed. The room was ok for just the 2 of us but not sure how you could call this a family room as it must be for a very small family.! Nice view from the window of the castle and good parking outside the room. The best thing about this room was how quiet it was, there was some residue sound from the main hotel but not too intrusive. The room was clean and the bed comfortable, the decor and furnishings were traditional and a bit dated.Bathroom was a good size with shower over bath. A very small shelf area for tea and coffee making. The main problem is with the hotel itself. The lounge and restaurant are very dated with scary bright pink flower bedroom wallpaper and lampshades to match. It was like walking into Fawlty Towers (there is a waiter who looks just like ,Manuel!) It clearly serves an older customer who probably like this sort of thing. My concerns were justified when I heard Val Doonican playing during breakfast. The breakfast was poor. A hot self serve buffet and sadly the cooked breakfast was very overcooked. The scrambled eggs looked like rubber and the fried eggs were swimming in a lake of oil. The sausages were thin and cheap looking and tasting.What looked like tinned grapefruit and orange pieces and a sad looking 'fresh' fruit bowl. Staff were going through the motions looking like they would rather be somewhere else.Heard the 'Chef' shout at the waiter when we requested more eggs and sausages after they had run out.!
