We spent three nights at Manresa Castle in August 2012. We took advantage of the weekday special and got a free appetizer and coupons for drinks for two nights of our stay. The hotel was clean and quiet. The room and bathroom were both spacious.

Our only issue was that when we left on Saturday, the breakfast had not been put out even though it was 7:15 and breakfast was supposed to start before 7. We had to go and buy our own breakfast as there was no one at the front counter to speak to, there was just a basket for keys for guests who were checking out.

Things to note...
There is no elevator and the flights of stairs are long.
This is not a disabled friendly hotel. It was built before such things were taken into account.
There is no air conditioning but the temperatures were cool enough that an open window was fine.
The court side rooms face over a road. It's not a major road with lots of traffic but if you have the window open you will hear the occasional car come down the street.
It is next to a hospital but we didn't hear any noise from that at all.
The restaurant is excellent!

This hotel is away from the downtown core. We parked at the visitor centre and then walked the 15 minutes to downtown.

We would certainly stay here again.

Stayed: August 2012, traveled as a couple

We stayed one weeknight here August 7-8 2012. The staff all very nice! Friendly and Welcoming!
The room was old, with time period furniture and wallpaper. Spacious, with a spacious bathroom. No hair dryer provided, as this is not a typical hotel. Also, no A/C (we are from PA where summers are often hot and humid). The high ceilings and decor are very nice. Beds very comfortable. The restaurant on site is very expensive ($161 for a meal for five with three drinking water only)...the meal was, however, excellent...we had steak that was done perfectly and tender. Two in our party had seafood, and found it to be very good. The twice baked potatoes are so wonderful.

Room Tip: No pool or fitness center; this is not a typical hotel! Our room was two queen beds, because we had three in our family, and my sis and her husband got a single room. Both very very nice. I don't think there are any bad rooms; we got to see some as we walked down the hall when some doors were open.

Stayed one night at the castle. It is a bit of a drive to downtown. We got a water view room. The castle is an old, worn building. Our room was small. It did not have air conditioning, and the ceiling fan did not provide much relief from the heat. The bathroom was even hotter and we could not open the window, so once you stepped out of the shower, you were sweaty again. The bathroom did not have a hair dryer. We did enjoy the lounge. The bartender was friendly and made good drinks. I would not stay here again. There are better options in port Townsend with just as much "charm"

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in a room with a view of the water and our friends had a view of the "garden". Our view was amazing, truly beautiful. Our friend's really had a view of a bit of grass and a covered area and into a street and neighborhood. It was okay.

The castle really is beautiful, however, it was really not on a very big property, really just enough for the building and parking. It features pictures on their wall of Mr and Mrs Eisenbeiss who built the castle as well as many photos around Port Townsend in earlier years that were fun to look at.
The inside of the castle is very beautiful inside as well, each room made to be as period as possible. There is no air conditioning, as it would be in those days, however, there is a TV in the room.
The food for dinner was good, we ate off the Pub menu because I think the prices for most of the other meals were rather expensive.
Breakfast came with the price of the room and was in the breakfast room. Mainly toast, cookie (which was really good) cold cereal, boiled eggs, bagels, muffins, milk, coffee, tea and juices.
The architecture was very nice and the sitting area had several books to peruse through. We got a beer from the bar and went to the sitting room to chat with our friends, which was nice.
When we got up the first morning and left the castle for the day, our friends put a door hanger on their room asking that their room be made up. We didn't have a door hangar in our room, so our room was just as we left it. Not that big of a deal but kind of strange.

Room Tip: Get a room that is overlooking the water. It is a beautiful view, but keep the shades down when you go to bed, the sun is very bright in the morning!

My daughter and I stayed in the infamous Room 306 and much to our delight, we had a very restful sleep. The room was spacious and clean. We even found an extra fan in the closet. The castle is quite beautiful and the staff was very accomodating. They willing shared the history of the castle and the hauntings which added to the mystique of our room.
Unfortunately, we did not eat in the restaurant castle but the continental breakfast served the best cookies. They were an oversized whole grain/cranberry type of cookie.
The grounds were neatly tended to and on our departure we saw a hummingbird hovering about some flowers. A very nice stay, indeed.
