Enjoyed the history and had the best nights sleep of my life. Wish the castle would have been restored a little better. Seemed like it was redone in the 1970s but we still loved that we were able to stay in a castle.

It's a hotel, they meet you at the door and take your car away and take in your bags. I'd email them about tours or meals. It's pretty impressive.
