One of the things I hate about going to a decent hotel on the weekends is weddings, and sure enough I book this place and there are like 2 weddings going on. Lots of noise, lots of congestion and not what I’m looking for coming from the US and trying to treat my wife to a nice castle environment. I did a lot of research on this place, finding that there are a limited number of rooms in the castle itself, and then a lot more rooms in the main buildings. I actually booked one year in advance (to the day) to ensure that I would get a castle room with a four poster bed (there are only 3 rooms like this) and much to my dismay when I checked in, all the poster bedrooms were gone. I was pissed! I mean really! Here I am putting up with a bunch of drunk obnoxious wedding parties and I probably got screwed out of my room to accommodate one of the brides on her wedding night. Had I not traveled over 4,000 miles from the US for this special occasion I might not be so pissed, but I was! So I nicely talked to the front desk girl who basically said too bad, we’re sold out but I might be able to get you in the room you want in a few nights. Right, like I’m staying here for awhile? So I told her I wanted to talk to her bosses boss, the owner. She said that wasn’t going to happen. No way she would call. Finally talked to the manager in charge that night. I could tell he was very busy with the weddings but he said he would take something off the bill. He did, but still overall it was not a pleasant experience. Then we went to the pool. By then it was 9pm and they close at 10pm. Hottub was small and packed with like 7 people. No way to get in. Waited around about 30 minutes and finally got in for a few before some more rowdies came. We had dinner there although I had read on TripAdvisor that maybe I should stay away…….but we were too tired to go out. Dinner was ok but breakfast was even better.
