Absolutely amazing
Reviewed 1 day ago

Arrived at this absolutely stunning castle at just after 11pm, lady on reception was great and arranged for Robbie to come down and open the bar for us to get a drink, he brought them over to is while we sat by the open fire, he then gave us a guided tour of the castle and had a good knowledge of its history. He is a credit to the company. Our room was a good size, and absolutely perfect, full of character. Went for breakfast this morning and the staff were extremely nice and couldnt do enough for you. The food was cooked to perfection. Having a stroll around the grounds is also a must, and head down to the river for a nice walk. Would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

We visited the castle for a family wedding. Everything was catered for. The grounds are lovely and the kids had so much fun exploring. Bedrooms were beautifully old fashioned with all the facilities needed. Will visit again

Enjoyable Stay

Stopped for two nights in the courtyard suites. Full of character and the castle itself is stunning, would love to attend a wedding there would make great photos.
All the staff were friendly and welcoming and they accomodated our late check in without any problems.
Breakfast and evening meal were very good fresh and hot, loved the beefe cheek main course it was gorgeous.

Perfect stay in the King James suite!

We had visited the hotel before and had fell in love with it. We had to come back and stay in the King James suite which is the most grand room/suite in the hotel. At the time I think we paid around £300 for one night b&b and it was worth it! The stay was for our "mini moon" after getting married, I did mention on booking and really appreciated that the staff therefore placed some complimentary chocolates, bottles of water and a card in our room (thank you!). We had the most relaxed night in the room, having a separate living room space we could chill and watch TV, and then the bed was out of this world, I have never seen a bed so large in height and width! We had the best night sleep as it was so large and comfy. We dined in the castle restaurant on the evening we stayed as well as having breakfast the next morning, the service and food was excellent, and the decor and atmosphere of the restaurant is incredible. I'm sure we'll be back again to stay soon as we love this place and with so many different rooms it is exciting to stay in a different room each time. Would highly recommend!
