My Wife and I stayed here in early March 2012. From the moment we saw the castle driving up, we were impressed, it is a very grand, prominent building, which has many original castle features. Upon arrival we were greeted by friendly attentive staff who showed us to our rooms (a necessity as on a first visit it can feel a bit 'maze like'.) The room it's self was great! Very spacious, four poster bed, with the novelty touch of the large wardrobe actually being the bathroom door, if we were not told about it, we may have been scratching our heads looking for it.
We left our bags and headed down to the library bar for a drink and something to eat. This was the only negative of the stay, as (like some other reviews have mentioned) the service here was very poor. Twice we had to ask if our drinks were on the way.
Later on that evening we ate in the Black knight restaurant. Food was excellent, the sort of quality that I was expecting from the establishment, atmosphere was great, very busy but there were plenty of waiting staff to cope with this. Time between courses was about 20-25 minutes, which (for me) is just right for a good meal.
After a good night’s sleep in a comfy bed we headed down for breakfast, plenty of choice again, continental, full English, Kippers etc.
I would highly recommend staying here and I have booked for us to return at the end of the month!!
