Booked for 2 nights into the castle suite (4 poster room) but checked out after 1 night.
The room and decor were very tired. Whist we appreciate the age of the building, the paint on the inside of the windows was peeling showing rotten window frames. Additionally below our window was where the smokers from the pub congregate so we could smell their smoke and hear every word they said.
The four poster bed was very wobbly and creaky. All of the joints need tightening up and it's literally just the 4 posts - no canopy on top.
The bathroom looked superficially clean but the toilet was dirty and the radiator fitments filthy. We had no hot water when running a bath - at this point we gave up and checked out less than 12 hours after arriving.
Breakfast was ok with good quality sausages and the young girl serving us with faultless with her service.
To be honest I don't know how this has such a good rating on here. It looks good for a romantic weekend treat but the castle suite is just a real disapointment.
