Prior to the wedding i tried to make arrangements with the staff for an early check in. Thought they were a little off the tune for a 5* hotel. They were saying that the hotel was only half full the night before but could not guarantee an early check in. I was attending a wedding and had a 5 month old baby. They knew we were travelling for about 3 hours to get their for the wedding and offered us the spa facilities. I told them that my wife was still feeding the baby and that this would not be suitable. They would not change their stance. Found this a slightly bit annoying when I found out that they had given another couple (childless) a guranteed early check in.
Anyway, between the jigs and the reals they changed their stance (after many phone calls) and we got the early check in which we are eternally grateful for.
The room was excellent and everything that you would expect from a 5* hotel. Very comfortable indeed. There was a slight draft from an external door in the room that baby didnt like but it is a castle - nothing a few pillows and cushions couldnt sort out. The night staff also dropped down a mobile radiator just in case.
The function was amazing. The room is as you would expect from a castle with all the modern twists you would find in a modern venue.
The food was top class. Fillet of beef that was melt in your mouth.
The grounds of the castle are just spectacular and a nice walk in the morning to feed the ducks, chase a few peasants! and a stroll through the walled gardens. Amazing.
i think I'll be back with my golf clubs in the future as the course looks pretty good too.
