Staying at Leeds Castle Stable Courtyard B&B was a wonderful part of our vacation. We arrived as they were opening for the day and parked in the inner courtyard where B&B guests park so our car was much handier than if we had been at the parking lot for day visitors. We enjoyed the grounds, castle, and falconry display. We had booked dinner at Leeds as well, as part of our package. The meals were good and the room was lovely: spacious with 2 easy chairs and a very nice bathroom. All the staff at the castle were very pleasant and helpful. The next morning we didn't have to be on the road right away and we were permitted to leave our car where it was after we checked out of our room, and we enjoyed another walk through the grounds before departing.
Our only quibbles were that it took a long time and some "prompting" to get our dinner confirmations when our reservations were made 2 months prior to staying at Leeds, there was confusion by dining room staff about our pre paid dinner package, and we didn't have internet in our room - the signal wasn't strong enough and I had to sit outside in the courtyard at a café table to use the wi-fi. When we had our dinner, we were billed for the entire amount instead of just our extras and wine. Our server quickly changed the bill, but there seemed to lack a clear system advising us, or the restaurant staff, how to make the system work without having to stand at the cash desk while the billing was corrected.
Spending the night at Leeds Castle was relaxed and helps to make the most of the day viewing the grounds and the castle. The bed was very comfortable and it was very quiet making for a wonderful night's sleep. Highly recommended.
