Ok, I want to start this review by saying, this is NOT a castle. It is a mansion built on the crumbling remains of a castle from the 1500s. That being said, it is a very nice hotel.
Our room was the Allingham room with four poster bed, claw foot bathtub right in the bedroom and a separate bathroom with shower in a separate room through a small hallway. The furnishings were very nice with a small coffee table and chairs. The carpet was pretty worn and not stretched well and the bed was not a true king but two singles put together with a ridge down the middle. The WIFI worked quite well in the room.
The Shower was never really hot. The first day it was lukewarm, the second day it was just warm. The hotel is not close to town, but the grounds were beautiful.
The choice of breakfast included in the price were varied and tasty. Joe and Esther serving breakfast were very charming and helpful with travel information.
The room ran $290 a night. For this money I expect a little more than a $100 a night B&B, so hence the four stars instead of five stars
