The building is beautiful, the approach is stunning. The reception area and lounge bar are reminiscent of a colonial-era country estate.
I was staying at the hotel whilst in the area on business and needed somewhere central with secure parking; The Castle is right in the heart of the town and although the parking was reduced due to some building work there seemed to be plenty.
I had ordered a double room but was given a single, being under five foot five in height and British I opted not to complain! The room was basic and seemed small only when I needed to work from it the following evening.
The staff were very friendly and were extremely helpful when I asked them some questions relating to the locale.
My room was at the front of the building, given the character of the building the windows were not double glazed and I too was awoken in the early hours by wagons unloading outside. With a pub outside there was the possibility of some nuisance noise in the evening, I stayed Sunday and Monday night and all was quiet after midnight. If you tend to sleep before then I suggest you request a room away from this side of the building.
The breakfast menu was confusing; I had pre-paid for bed and breakfast and yet I was confronted with a price list. I didn't eat at the hotel for any other meals, having seen the price for the breakfast options I thought I'd better not!
