    Stayed here on the last night of a tour. What a lovely end to a trip! The hotel was charming, clean, lovely staff. Easy walk to shopping and local tavern. Lovely stay! The flowers were lovely. The weather was lovely to sit outside.

    Good question. Their spa set up requires bookings etc, so it would be an additional price. I thought the pool was freely available, but we didn't use it. May be best to check with the hotel to get the right info.

    As a protocol and etiquette professional I will be visiting this area and looking at staying at the Castle Hotel and going to the Castle for the Dinner. I will be reviewing and hopefully recommending this hotel and the castle dinner to our international Protocol Association. I see that the comments range across the spectrum on this hotel (loved there website but would like to have seen a place for reviews - or I missed it), had to go to trip advisor for comments. I know some guest may have a minor problem that becomes a major issue when they write a review, so I try and keep an open mind, read between the lines and ask for honest feedback as if I was recommending to my grandmother. Would like some good recent feed back on the hotel, room, castle dinner, breakfast and things to do (sites, pubs, restaurants). Any suggestions greatly appreciated I do post after I stay at a location and give a very detail description and recommendation (good or bad)

    Not sure if this is too late but here goes. The hotel itself is quite good but could do with a touch up in places. The bar area is pretty small especially if there is a group in. Plenty of seating in the lobby area though... More

    Sorry, I don't know about public transit as we arrived by auto. And our breakfast was included as we had pre-booked bed & breakfasts for our vacation!
