Okay
Lovely venue for a wedding, staff were so helpful and kind
The rooms were very cold, there was no hot water and no milk in the rooms for the tea and coffee. We were staying for my sister wedding and was really disappointed with our room considering everything else about the day was really good. We had 2 small children aged 2 and 1 and our room had bunk beds which were really not suitable. Our room was really not worth the price we paid

Location and room were excellent. The food in the downstairs restaurant was very nicely cooked and always hot. Service was very good
I needed to ask for basics at breakfast eg toast, no jams despite listed on menu, no tea or coffee offered initially I had to ask staff member, no bread for continental breakfast, no gluten free bread as promised on first morning. In fairness, when I brought all this up with reception it was dealt with the next day.

The place is gorgeous! The rooms were very spacious and comfortable.
This is more so on booking.com and not the hotel. I read in the policies that payment would be taken 2 days prior to arrival but that wasn't the case at all! We had to pay at check out which was fine but we had already sorted out the money between us for paying in advance. I brought it up to the receptionist and she said she would have them review their policies with booking.com

The castle is quite grand, although not very well styled. The mezzanine level with the bedroom meant we had a lot more space downstairs with a separate lounge. The bath towels were large and fluffy. The staff were lovely.
The mattress was old, cheap and no longer had properly working springs. The pillows were old and hard and flat. Really disappointing level of comfort for a grand estate. My husband spent most of our two nights on the somewhat dirty mattress in the lounge room. The door to the entrance of our wing of the building made three thuds each time someone walked through it. Being Christmas, it thudded a lot at all hours of the day and night.
