Scenic, Historic and Peaceful Getaway
We loved the accommodations, history, beautiful scenery, peaceful atmosphere, walkable areas and friendly staff!

No HOT water
The property was nice on the surface. The food was good as expected. However we had no hot water when we tried to take a shower. Took hours to finally get someones attention to get it fixed. Decent place would not recommend unless you are desperate for a place to stay.

Over anticipated this one...
Was so excited to stay in a castle but the only thing left is the one small tower with a winding staircase up to the sensationally advertised room of the woman who purportedly haunts the tower. The room below was turned into a carpeted conference room (yuck!), and there were a few bedrooms in the tower. Not sure what those are like. But the rest was your standard nice hotel. I wouldn't recommend it. Look at castles during the day and save up your money for a real castle like Cabra Castle. This one was a lot of hype for one tower. Or if you do stay, stay in the tower or at least get an ocean view room!

Fun in the castle. We had a very nice room with ocean views. Comfortable and clean. Saw the Ghost room etc. which was fun. The gardens were beautiful. Went into the ocean in the AM. Drunken wedding-goers kept us up very late. Hotel should have addressed the issue. Generally the desk staff were excellent. Great restaurant with incredibly bad service. The service staff had no clue what they were doing. Walked around in circles looking confused. Didn't know what food to bring to which table. Forgot us for long periods. Several different waitresses that were not communication with each other. May have been due to the wedding. All four meals cooked improperly probably due to the waitstaff. The backend of the restaurant seemed solid. Front end needs an overhaul. Not much else to do in the immediate area.
