          On tripadvisor it list "lodge - standard" and "lodge - self-catering" is it safe to assume that the "lodge - standard" is for a room in the castle? I am looking for just one night for my daughter & I arriving 6 July 2017 and departing 7 July 2017 but prefer to stay in the castle. Thank you & regards, Patricia S. California, USA
