Overnight stay in the castle for a wedding
I recently stayed overnight for a wedding reception held within the castle. Our room was within the castle itself (not all are, we were the only ones from our party). I enjoyed my stay and had a great nights sleep in the comfy bed. The room itself was decorated nicely and was clean. It also had a nice view out to the hills. Bathroom spacious and bright, but not modern. The bed was firm but very comfortable, with a good duvet and pillows. There were some negatives that I didn't expect and that I imagine would really annoy some people.The room was on the top floor, there was no lift that i'm aware of, and it was quite a climb. We are both fit, healthy adults, but it wasn't ideal, especially in wedding clothing/heels and after a few drinks, and taking a suitcase up. The blinds are not adequate and let a lot of light in. With the early sunrises in summer this is quite disruptive to sleep. The sound proofing between our room and the neighbouring room was poor, and we could hear the people next door talking pretty loudly through the wall. Also, on our arrival at 5pm, the neighbouring room had left a tray of finished room service with dirty dishes outside their door on the floor. When we left to check out at 1050am the next day these dishes were still there. I would expect that to be collected by staff long before then, for the attraction of pests at the very least. On a very positive note though, the food served at the wedding buffet was excellent.
