A brilliant idea. The use of university student accomadation, during their vacations. Just arriving through the arch way leading into the castle is a spectacular entrance.
The castle is old, with Norman architecture seen around the window frames. As the castle is set high the views are brilliant.
The standard rooms are basic- bed, sink, table, no TV. The bathrooms/shower area are generally communal- clean, but a walk away from the bedroom.
Breakfast is served in the main hall.
Have stayed here a couple of times, will go again. Staff are polite, pleasant, and amenable.
Enjoyed the free guided tour.
Best of all - staying in a magnificent castle, atmospheric, and cannot be beaten.
