My friend and I booked in one night to stay at the castle. When we booked, only lodging was available, which was fine so that's what we booked. Upon arrival, my friend and I went to check in (it was 2.30 in the afternoon) and were told that our ac mood agin wouldn't be ready for at least another hour. Keep in mind that we had travelled from Australia, and were tired and wanted to freshen up a bit. When we finally were able to go to our accommodations, they were absolutely beautiful, and clean but, with the castle being on the island, and no assess to a car we went to reception asking about what we could do for dinner. We were told that the golf club was closed for a private function and the dinning room was full. We asked about having a drink in the bar, and were told that the bar was booked out too. Since when is a bar booked out? We then asked what we were ment to do for dinner, and were told we could walk 10 min into town and there was a pub there. It took well over 20min to walk there, and the pub stopped serving food on a Sunday at 4 so we didn't eat at all that night because we had no access to anything and were refused from the dinning room. We paid $400 Australian dollars to stay one night in a castle, our one night of luxury, and we couldn't even use the castle facilities which I find very poor.
