    Black out blinds would be really useful as the sun rises early! A car is essential.

    Staff were wonderful. Really kind and a pleasure to be around. Room was lovely with beautiful views. Breakfast delicious and not wasteful or excessive like in some hotels. Very personal and quirky.

    We love everything about the Colona Castle. We loved the view, the room, the design, the facilities, the breakfast, and most of all the warm welcome and the exceptional service and help granted to us by Nicole, the owner, and her stuff (David).

    1.The rooms and bathrooms were equipped with 'every thing' except ..sealed bottles of water. There were jugs with still water sealed with cling film, but how many days had they been sitting there...? In my opinion, to get daily sealed bottles of water is essential...even if tapwater is 'safe'. 2. More coat hangers are always apreciated!

    1. The over head shower head could be hand held if need be - excellent! 2. The Internet with its password worked perfectly. 3. David- the butler, the right hand, the concierge, the advisor, the ever present helpful man with the right suttle approach to humour, friendliness and proffessionalism - was fantastic!!! 4. Sky news and BBC World news 5. Huge and comfortable bed with individual duvets. 6. Air condition 7. Beautiful and well maintained furniture, paintwork, upholstery, silver, rugs and carpets, table linen, china, garden etc. etc. 8. Big rooms with sometimes ante rooms, balcony etc. 9. Majestic views.

    Could have done with an extra pillow - should have asked!

    We felt cared for in the broadest sense of the word. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, the food was excellent, views splendid and the rooms so comfortable and well serviced at all times
