Being a Castle it doesn’t get much more unique than this. Lovely location, lovely friendly staff and amazing rooms with historical significance. Where else can you sleep where King James 1st slept?!! Had a great stay, thank you.

Beautiful place let down.
Room was very cold with no control of heating! was given a small fan heater at reception so had to chose between a cold night or a noisy one. was offered a grab and go breakfast due to restrictions which was happy to accept but then it turned out to be 2 prepacked plastic like pastries, a carton of orange and a bag of crisps.
