I stayed as a solo traveler here, and it was incredible! The room I had was like walking back into time (down to the showerless tub in the bathroom)! I felt like a Princess. The Castle itself was a little smaller than I anticipated - but it was way cool. Fancy old rooms, even a secret passage way from the library to the conservatory...ha! It was like I was in the game CLUE (: Fabulous food as well, in a very family type setting. If you get there early you can stroll the gardens and almost have the island to yourself. It truly was a magical experience!
