Amazing Stay
Reviewed 5 days ago

Me and my partner have just spend 1 night here for our 4th wedding anniversary. We got the deal from groupon so paid a good price. The castle is beautiful and the room we had which was a basic room was also really nice, clean and spacious. We did have a problem that we needed to speak to the manager about but the sorted it quickly and more than made up for it. The staff in the hotel are so friendly and so welcoming it really does make a massive difference. The spa is really nice and we used the hot tub which was amazing. We had a 3 course meal in the evening which nice, but the breakfast in the morning was amazing. There was so much choice. There was cereals, yogurts, plenty of fruit, crossaints, and plenty of hot food, bacon eggs ect. They bring toast to your table and filter coffee. It was honestly the best hotel breakfast Iv had in a hotel. The wine cellar bar is also worth a visit at night. Lovely atmosphere. We will definitely be returning.

We stayed here for one night after staying at a lovely Welsh Inn the night before. The castle was impressive, the staff were friendly, the public areas well kept. Our room 501 however was up several flights of stairs, it was dark and dingy, and the view was awful looking out over a gas tank and a generator I think (see picture). The room was warm enough and the bathroom was small but OK. There was alot of dust in the room and unfortunately the attention to detail from the cleaning staff wasn't great, something had been spilt some time ago and never cleaned up (see picture). The Castle seemed more geared up to functions rather than private guests, alot of areas were out of bounds and noisy guests partying into the night made it difficult to sleep. On the face of it it's impressive, but it seems to be all show and we won't be

Fabulous place, had a room in the turret, amazing place. Very clean, luxurious feel. Excellent food, staff friendly and helpful. Surrounding woods ideal for walks. Spa looked great although didn’t try it. Would highly recommend and hopefully will return.
