“Very unusual and well worth the effort.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2012

This is totally different from any other castle (with the exception of Castell Coch which was owned by the same person)that I have ever visited. It is quirky and very beautiful and well worth a visit. The only drawback is that when I visited in high summer the timed tours were a little too quick.

“Premium ticket is worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2012

We bought a premium ticket to have a guided tour of the inside of the castle. The rooms you get to see in this tour are definitely worth the extra money.
