We stayed 2 nights (Fri/Sat) in March to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. On check-in, although we had only booked a courtyard room we were allocated a room in the castle which was a pleasing bonus. The room was a reasonable size and very well furnished although very dark even with all the lights on - I know it's a castle but some optional effective lighting wouldn't have gone a miss, it would have helped my wife see to put her make-up on!
The big disappointment came in the restaurant. The service was appalling. On our first night we had an hour's wait between our starters and main course, we weren't the only ones others seemed to be experiencing similar waits. At least things improved on our second night, the wait between starters and main course had reduced to 35 minutes which gave our red wine a chance to reach room temperature having been served stone cold! The food was reasonable but not great and highly overpriced. Breakfast proved to be a better experience.
The hotel itself is in a beautiful setting and has a lot of character but I wouldn't return unless the restaurant experience improves.More
