            pleasant staff, clean rooms,lovely surrounds

          • Couple
            8.2

            staff very friendly & helpful - all - including reception, waitresses, chambermaids. Very relaxed atmosphere to place & stay

          • Group of friends
            4.6

            Staff were very pleasant. Surroundings are very good. Castle is historic and very interesting. But .......

            Some very basic things were faulty. Mainly in the plumbing and heating department. In the morning the shower did not have any hot water ( probably the most basic need of b and b ). The receptionists advice to try having a bath did not work as there was only an inch of hot water before it ran out. The toilet roll holder and soap dish were hanging off the wall. The room had a dressing table but no chair or stool to sit on. The breakfast was supposed to run until 09.30 but when we arrived at 09.20 it was being cleared away. Breakfast choice was less and not as good as a Premier Travel Inn.

          • Group of friends
            5.8

            The staff were friendly and efficient. The food was good. The location was excellent, the castle lovely and the grounds beautiful.

            The rooms were very poor. You would not have had the faintest idea from the furniture and decorations that you were in a castle. It was very disappointing. I thought the rooms were poor value for money.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            The fact we were staying in an historic castle was great. The 4 poster was great and very comfortable. Also the meals were fantastic as was the bar.

            I feel the grounds surrounding the castle could be better maintained.

            Quiet and Location. Will defnitely return.

            As we have been before, our stay was wonderful and just what we expected.

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            Location suited us well. Reeptionist was very helpful.

            The wholeplace needs a major refurbishment. We paid for a room upgrade, better than the room we had booked but very dated.

          • Group of friends
            4.2

            The views from our window. The staff in the bar were pleasant

            1. none of the facilities that shown on the website - hairdryer / trouser press were in our room / no warning of a step going into our room which my wife tripped over ( it was immediately there as you opened the door ) a screw was sticking up from the carpet fitting between the bathroom and living area, which I cut my foot on after exiting the shower, which had no pressure or hot water + the shower unit was coming away from the wall. the bathroom had cobwebs hanging from the cealing the mirror would not go straight so I had to shave at an angle, there were only enough toiletries for one person - 1 shower - 1 shampoo, good job my wife brang her own... she had a wash instead of a shower as it was pointless. being picky there was no hot chocolate sachet - found in every hotel of this level, but this one - That was just the highllights of our room.... we had elected to dine in the dining room and had arranged for my sister-in-law who has to have a bland diet, to pick something either from the menu or for the chef to cook her something, we were 'grilled' by a member of staff from the resturant as to who is was authorised this, taken out of the dining room to 'the lounge' why he went off, by the time he came back to say this would be ok ! we were so uncomfortable about being taken back to the resturant, we ate in the bar.. not the best experience for the 4 of us, tanted any decision that we would stay at a Best Western again.....We filled in our form explaining the problems we had experienced and left it in our room, and I was going to have a word at reception when we checked out, but it was so busy and we needed to go.. that we hoped that the form details would be taken seriously. Especially about no warning og the step in the room, my wife went flying over it bruising her arm on the doorway, only 11 wks after a huge operation, hence the w/e away......

            Below standard for a Best Western and food not good

            The staff are friendly and go out of their way to ensure your stay is a pleasant one

            Took a long time for the hot water to come through

          • Older travelers
            6.2

            Our Evening meal was lovely the breakfast didnt rate very well

            The cold shower the noise from the kitchen fans and the disco which ran till midnight. I would stay again but not in the room we had.

            I stayed there with a colleague from France and as the hotel was fairly quiet we were both upgraded to large castle rooms with 4 poster beds. The restaraunt food was a very high standard and the portions were more than adequate. Excellent breakfast.
