Stayed here for 2 nights in April and stayed in room 4 as there was three of us.
Didn't get off to the best of starts as no one was in when we arrived so I'd suggest you let them know what time time you plan to arrive.
But it got better after that. The room was lovely and large with a very comfy double bed and two singles. Be a bit careful if you are in the single beds as the roof slopes over them which did result in a coupe of banged heads. There is a little fridge which was stocked with milk and chocolate and there were homemade shortbread to have with your cup of tea. All very nice and very thoughtful. There is a lovely view over the garden and the hills beyond (couldn't see the Castle though). Our hosts made us very welcome with some excellent recommendations for local pubs especially the Scott Arms in Kingston.
The bathroom is nice with a very welcoming looking bath plus a walk in shower. A shelf for your toiletries would be a nice added touch. Lovely hot shower and white fluffy towels.
Breakfast was literally a feast to behold. Cereals, fresh fruit salad, yoghurts 3 types of juice, 5 types of jam some made on the premises the rest home made plus 2 homemade marmalades and that's before the fried breakfast which as of high quality and huge. I promise you lunch will not be needed!!
There are books and magazines to read, DVDs to watch etc in case of inclement weather ( which we had one day) as well as guides to local attractions.
In summary I would recommend Castle View. Just make sure you let hem know what time you are arriving.
I paid £120 a night for room 4.
