We had a very good stay and I would recommend staying for a special occasion. Our room was in the main castle and had an amazing 4 post bed. The room was spacious and a nice bathroom that was newly renovated. Sleep was a bit difficult due to the heat, it was a fan in the room but that wasn't enough to cool down the room. On to the food, which left us slight disappointed. Having read all the reviews before hand we were expecting really high quality food and unfortunately we felt it was a bit over priced versus what it delivered. Service was also good but not perfect. Especially my started that was langustine, was disappointing, taste but so small... Breakfast was chaotic, we were invited to help ourselves to the cold buffet but that wasn't easy. Hardly anything left of the table and no clean dishes for cereal. Overall, happy with the stay, room amazing but food slightly underwhelming for the price they charge. Collapse

The first experience after checking in is carrying your luggage up three flights of stairs. I have never experienced that in any hotel much less a five star rated hotel. After arriving in the room it was 93.5 degrees F. Granted they can't control the weather but there was no air conditioning and we were only offered a tiny table top fan. We asked for another fan and was told there was only one fan per room. My wife felt ill from the heat and we asked for ice water. There was no ice to be found. We tried to make a go of it but it was unbearable. We decided to checkout and asked was prepared to sacrifice the cost of one night and was told we would still have to pay for both nights. I understand that the temperature is out of their control but given the extreme conditions you would expect some kind of allowance would be made. We lugged our suitcases back downstairs and left. Also they advertised wifi which did not work. Collapse

The approach to the castle is full of promise. We had a lovely welcome at reception and were taken to the Howard room which more than met our expectations and was absolutely exquisite – very spacious, comfy bed and furnishings and very romantic with the four-poster bed and Tudor décor. We were delighted to have an anniversary greetings card waiting for us on the desk. After exploring the castle grounds and beautiful gardens we went for pre-dinner drinks and delicious canapes in the lounge area. We upgraded the ‘Secret Escapes’ 2 course dinner package we had bought to the gourmet tasting menu and chose to have the accompanying wine tasting menu. The food and wine pairing was spot-on and we were delighted to make the acquaintance of Pedro, our waiter for the evening. Finally we were given a special plate of ‘anniversary’ truffles which was a lovely surprise. After a fantastic night’s sleep we went for breakfast and were spoilt for choice. Again, delicious food and helpful service. We didn’t need to eat again until we treated ourselves to a late afternoon cream tea on the way home. This had to be one of our best hotel stays ever. Al the staff were so helpful and friendly and we felt truly spoilt. Collapse

Picked this hotel as a birthday surprise for my wife, She has always wanted to stay in a castle and was completely captivated by the whole experience. It ticked all the boxes for us as the location was lovely and quiet, the staff were extremely attentive without being overbearing, the room was fantastic with views over the walled garden and the quality of the food was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the members of staff from replenishing the tea and coffee in our room to finding out where we could buy one of the local suppliers drinks!! My only concern would be that during an extended stay the menu would be a little short, however, for a weekend it was fine. We look forward to returning in the future. Collapse
