We just chanced upon Castle Hill, as we were passing and needed somewhere to stay. From the outside it looked as if someone was making an effort, so we thought it worth a look. At the door I asked what prices the rooms were, and was immediately invited in on a friendly no pressure tour of all the available rooms. My partner had a bad back, so the quality of the bed was our priority, and we were able to test out those available. We were quickly offered a good deal by the every friendly and affable Alistair.
The guest house is newly refurbished very tastefully - not too modern, and certainly not chintzy - just classical and up-to-date at the same time. There's a real attention to important details - fresh milk available for tea from the honesty bar downstairs, quality bathroom products, home made banana muffins for breakfast (alongside the full English), wireless broadband.
Nothing is too much for your hosts, Emma and Alistair - a young energetic friendly couple. Infact it feels like your staying with friends of 20 years, but without having to put up with the sofabed! They're chatty, but not intrusive, helpful and full of advice, and they're good at reading how much is the right amount. It is their spirit that truly makes your stay here.
