Stayed: Tuesday 15th to Thursday 17th July 2014
The hotel itself is nice enough, a little tired and creaky, but not unpleasant. It's a bit of a rabbit warren, but it has character. The room was good, clean and of average size for a twin room. I wasn't disappointed with the room or hotel. I did find the bed hard and uncomfortable, but my mum thought her's was fine, so I guess it's down to personal preference.
What made it go from average to very good, for me, was the staff. The ladies on the front desk and the gentleman that taxi'd us around (a gentleman that works for the hotel), were all lovely. Very warm and incredibly helpful. For that reason alone, I would stay here again.
To the staff at the Castle Hotel 'Thank you for all your kindness and attentiveness, it really makes a difference to your customers.'
