For a town that has few hotels the Castle has, commendably, not become complacent about the lack of competition. Although there are some rough edges (probably the result of the economic situation) such as a few broken windows and the need for some paint it remains a comfortable hotel. The staff are fine (although why oh why the restaurant staff are east European and not locals defies belief) and welcoming. The public rooms are relaxing although they might get a bit crowded if the hotel were full. The bedroom was clean although the arrangement of the two twin beds was the result of the room’s shape. But it was OK even though the duvet and pillows were, I tough, a bit cheap and overly synthetic. Flat-screen TV with limited Freeview channels and plenty of storage space. The bathroom was fine with ample hot water but the shower was no more than adequate. Nice toiletries and the only discordant touch was the painfully cheap and tacky cabinet. The restaurant offered a decent menu that was competent rather than exceptional. The sashimi tuna as a starter was good even though the salad garnish was a little pedestrian. The lamb was not as tender as it could have been but was otherwise fine with a good selection of vegetables which were also ample in quantity. Breakfast was good with the usual suspects. You could help yourself to as much bacon and eggs and things as you liked but, surprise surprise, there was no extra charge for kippers or haddock nor the smoked salmon and scrambled egg that I had. And to my delight there as actually a nice lot of salmon. Overall then not a bad little hotel and one that I’d be happy to go back to even if I were paying myself. And, more importantly perhaps, one that I’d be happy to spend a few days at. I paid a discounted rate of £55 for bed and breakfast which was about right. The rack rate is about £80 which does seme a bit excessive though.
