There are four reasons why staying at the Flycatcher Castle is a MUST:
One: seven 5-star 19th century England-suites, spacious and full of
atmosphere. Added bonus: no TV.
Two: Manie, the owner-manager, is a first-rate chef. You'll drool over the
breakfasts, but the dinners are even better AND included in the rate! Manie
is also an artist, and every course isn't only superbly delicious but also
an exquisite work of art.
Three: the service, or better phrased, the attitude: warm and embracing
hospitality. Never before have I received a personal email, a day before
arrival, stating that the manager-chef is "waiting expectantly to spoil me"
(which of course turned out true)! When I had trouble recharging my camera
batteries, Manie insisted on lending me his camera. And it went on and on...
Fourth, the castle isn't just a hotel, it's actually a tourist site to be
visited even without staying there. Guests can enjoy both the castle-like
public spaces and private suites, as well as a wonderful
flowered-sculptured-fountained garden. They are also offered a tour of other
parts which include an Arab-themed erotic bridal suit, enclosed with its
own garden; an art gallery with Manie's beautiful and meaningful sculptures;
and a unique chapel, with a starry dark-night ceiling, a smiling Jesus (I have
never seen Jesus smile), and a set of priceless 14 medieval reliefs
depicting Jesus' journey.
I'm very well travelled and have stayed in literally hundreds of hotels.
Never have I encountered such standards and such gracious and warm
hospitality. Before leaving, I brought Manie a bouquet of flowers to
express my gratitude. Staying at the Flycatcher is a MUST.
