This is without exception the worst hotel I've stayed in, ever. The one rating was for the pleasant way in which staff dealt with complaints. My partner and I stayed one night. The first room was a twin you couldn't swing a cat in. We had actually booked a double, so back to reception we go , the receptionist kindly changed rooms. The second room we entered to find the room was occupied. Oops good job we are honest and left when we noticed shoes / clothing and jewelry on the dresser. Back to reception we trotted bags in tow, the reception apologised and issued a third room ( My partner sniggering as he heard one of the staff say, yes its clean, the chef has left). This was romantically described as ' the old part of the castle'. Please don't be fooled by the hype, this actually means the bit that's visibly damp, smells of rotting mould and poorly cleaned, the Shower was broken and only one cup and towel .We knew we couldn't walk out of this hotel, (we would have gone home) however we had tickets for a comedy event in Stratford and hotels in the area were full, therefore pretty stuck! I did feel sorry for the lovely staff, a couple who'd just booked in for a weekend break had seen their room and were checking out. Owners need to seriously think about this hotel, it's slipping into dilapidation and decay. This is not a snobbery issue either folks, this is a fairly modern rebuilt castle and we have stayed in better kept youth hostels.
