Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This property had everything anyone could want in accommodations. The beautiful grounds were phenomenal! We walked down different paths without running into anyone. The staff were wonderful; booking us breakfast and dining times, giving us an extensive tour of the facilities and a brief history of the castle. Our room was very comfortable and clean. I don’t think I’ve ever stayed in anywhere finer!
