We stayed as a couple at the Castle Inn for a weekend break on 30/3/2012 for 2 nights D,B&B. We chose to stay in a Suite Room 32, It was most definitely the room to stay for the views of the mountains and the lake and also the gardens which are very well presented. The Dinners and the breakfasts were extremely good and the service in the main was excellent. Particular note has to be made of Katalain (Ritsons Restaurant) and Laura (Reception) who both showed a wish to please in abundance. The rooms have had a refit recently and whilst they now look fresh and clean, they have not removed the character of the property with the furnishings. The Bathrooms are very contemporary and feel good to be in, however, the build quality seems to have been let down slightly with some of the grout in the floor tiles already cracking and coming out, possibly something that only someone with building experience would notice. Pillows and bedding looking a little tired, had to ask for extra pillows due to being too flat, but supplied without problem with better pillows when asked at reception immediately. Overall it was a very good weekend and all the facilities are what you would expect of a 4 star hotel with the exception of no bathrobes supplied, which when you have a lot of windows in the room it is necessary to cover up when drying hair etc.
Would definitely go again and have been looking at dates in the summer but appear to rise incredibly so may be out of reach.
