I'm not quite sure about this Hotel and that's probably because i'm from Dublin and not from the USA. I don't fall for the usual diddely idol 'tosh' that some tourists do. Anyway, the family run 'castle' is a peculiar place. From the moment you arrive you are greeted with a smile which appears to be genuine but then again i'm not sure. However the staff are well trained and nothing seems to be a problem. My daughter said ' hey dad, this place is like an old folks home' and she was probably right as I am getting old and sometimes forget this !!! Most revellers were in their 50's - 90's and the second floors had a smell to match. Can't quite put my finger on it but I suppose it was either sewage problems or rot.
I would rate the food at about 4 out of 5 - don't have the cheese and cauliflower soup - a bit like baby food.- yuck
The bedrooms and old but OK and the price should reflect this if you are staying here.
Sleep quality is good and the walls are breeze block so sound doesn't travel !
The building is not in good nick and needs an overhaul. The personal touch from the owners makes the hotel what it is - a very friendly, warm and nice place.
Enjoy your stay - I still can't put my finger on whether i'll be back or not Strange --- very strange
