I'm sure the castle requires tons of maintenance, but a bit of it has been deferred. Nothing major, and this certainly did not dilute our enjoyment of the property. Our rooms were appropriate to that offered royalty in a castle. We were very satisfied overall, and would certainly recommend the castle to others.
Both the evening and breakfast restaurant managers were extremely charming and personable. They took extra effort to see that we were warmly welcomed, even providing us free champagne for our party of six. They decorated our table with American flags when they learned we were from the USA. Both of them strove to make this a memorable experience. The food was an excellent value, but the staff, including the waiters, made it top notch! You will not find a better choice if you want castle accommodations with an attentive staff, particularly in the restaurant.
