    sense of history

    really nice to stay somewhere a little bit different- a wonderful castle with a sense of history. Comfortable quiet rooms, friendly helpful staff and taking sensible health precautions very seriously. Food excellent- particularly enjoyed the fish and chips which were a cut above.

    How often do you get to sleep in a real medieval castle! Complete with a dungeon, the details and the history, this place is fantastic. Our room, however was up to modern standards and very comfortable.

    The building is wonderful and old with plenty of character, it would have been more comfortable it our bedroom had easy chairs in stead of the two hard back ones we had, trying to relax and watch the TV was a little uncomfortable, but the room in general was lovely,

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    A real quirky, wonderful place to stay with the hotel in a former castle. The room was huge with a lovely four poster bed and glorious large bay mullioned windows, and the bathroom was modern with a large shower. Check in was quick and the staff were friendly. Lovely, peaceful location in the countryside and beautiful views in the morning. Only downsides, and they are nitpicks, were the poor quality of the Wifi and some black mould on the bottom of the curtains (condensation is obviously a problem with old, single glazed mullion windows but maybe the curtains could be cleaned/replaced once in a while). My stay was at a bargain price and I'd definitely go again.
