Stayed here 24th-26th January as a birthday celebration for my wife. Check-in was excellent with the very friendly and professional Sarah, (would sir like one key) hope it still makes you laugh. That was just the beginning of an excellent stay. Our room (3117) was spacious and clean with a side view of the Castle. The hotel has a well-stocked bar with a decent area for sitting down and relaxing. As you would expect from a 4-star hotel, the breakfast is plentiful and very tasty and the staff were attentive but not intrusive. We made the mistake of not booking a restaurant for our evening meal on the Saturday night. Everywhere we tried could not accommodate us so headed back to the hotel to try the restaurant. Well, what a decision that was; the guys managed to squeeze us in but to be honest, we had a large area to ourselves at the back of the room, it was perfect, thanks. We chose the 3-couse meal option and the food was excellent. Well done kitchen staff for producing great food. We chose (well, my wife did) a £25 bottle of white wine (I prefer red so don’t ask me what it was) and it was very good indeed, not like some of the vinegar sold as “good wine” in some places. So overall, as a birthday dinner, it was a hit. All in all a great hotel, in a great location with very friendly and professional staff. Special thanks to the Dufftoon Loon Vinny, The Irish Loon, Sarah, Justina (hopefully go that right) and all other bar, kitchen an waiting staff. You are a credit to the hotel, keep it up.
Note: - You can get to the castle by walking up the path and stairs directly across from the hotel. It will take you under 10 minutes if you are fit; the stairs are a bit steep in places.
