Stayed at the hotel on Saturday night for a birthday celebration. On arrival, we asked if it was possible to change our twin booking for a double. "No problem" said the receptionist. No reference to the fact that she moved us to a room on the first floor of the annex which was infested with guests of a wedding reception being held in the function room.
Room was small and quite basic. Bathroom clean-ish. A bit black around the shower corners!
Early evening was punctuated by families knocking on all doors (including ours) to discover who was staying in which rooms. What fun!
The meal was fine, usual Chef and Brewer standard. Service a little slow but we weren't in a hurry. Table booked for 7:30, asked for the bill at about 10:30.
Went to bed early, anticipating some sleep deprivation as the reception was in full swing. 1-ish came the families with kids. Not too bad. Later, we were awakened and kept awake by a room party on the ground floor with music, shouting and laughing accompanied by a strong smell of cigarette smoke. Tried to call reception to complain...no answer. Tried to call the offending room...didn't connect. It wasn't until I went down in person and asked for some quiet that they stopped...3:15am
Didn't bother with breakfast as we couldn't get out quick enough.
We have stayed at the Castle before and had a good experience. Tip of the day, check if there is anything on in the function room before booking.
