            The size of the room and the garden and castle view

            loction was excellent, close to historical sites. beutiful building

            Food was extremely poor. The decor in the puplic areas failed to capture the potential of the building. Windows in the bedroom were painted shut and, with no apparent source of ventilation, the room was stuffy,

            Helpful staff, clean and bright room with good facilities, good resturant and breakfast

          • Older travelers

            The light shade was too low and room was on the small side but everything else was fine.

          • Older travelers
            7.0

            The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. The bar was pleasant to have a drink in.

            Breakfast was disorganised. For the amount of people turning up at peak time for breakfast on Sunday morning, the chef did not keep on top of topping up the cooked breakfast leaving people with half full plates going cold waiting for more items to be put out. Fruit bar also ran out - luckily I had already had some by then.

            Close proximity to the City,relaxed atmostphere in the Bar/varanda areas.Room cleanliness.Ample choice at breakfast.Only stayed one night,next time would look at 2 nights depending on what rate I can agree.

            Cost of breakfast,on reciving confirmation of my booking the papaerwork stated £10 full english breakfast,however when checking out we were charged £14 each.

            room service prompt and the staff very friendly. Bed was very comfortable and the temperautre of the room was great. Lovely clean bathroom with bath and shower

            I ordered a newspaper which didn't arrive. The decor looked a little shabby - like it needed redecorating
