We enjoyed a delightful dinner and a good night's sleep. We combined a family birthday celebration with an early Christmas celebration so we all had a great time. Loved the medieval decor with the shields and knights - and the owner operators mingled with the guests which created a lovely atmosphere.

The Castle is a Motel that is very spacious, the rooms are big and the communal area has a lot of room so you don't feel caged at all. only ate breakfast at the restaurant so cannot comment there except we did have a rather long wait on breakfast to arrive.

Very nice and well appointed motel.Lots of rooms and an excellent kitchen and dining room.If towing a caravan/camper there is plenty of space in the courtyard without unhitching. Excellent for the "I've had enough caravaning for the day" syndrome

Managers/Owners Richard & Helen are very helpful and friendly people that make you feel welcomed. The rooms are clean with undercover parking right at your door. The restaurant is not open Sunday evenings, but not to worry, Helen arranged for something from a local takeaway. Will stay here again.

We called ahead and the service over the phone was great. Then arrived and was greeted well. Restaurant was a lovely medieval set room and bar. Meals were great I had the Chicken Al A Bowen and my wife had a mild Lamb Curry. Room was adequate and contained all advertised items. Would stay again.

The motel is very dated but the rooms are clean and the staff are welcoming, would stay again. The staff are very accommodating and the food was very nice. Very querky in the way the motel is decorated, dated but there are things to look at that make you smile.

Nothing too much trouble, undercover car parking even for our 1.96 metre high by 6 metre long Chevy. We didn't try the restaurant, although I have been assured the food is good, as we decided to get fish and chips from the fishermen's co-op. Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice. Will stay again.

Large clean rooms, some showing their age a bit but renovations are ongoing. The dishes served in the restaurant are substantial, well-prepared and fairly priced. To adults and two kids (5 and 12), we would certainly stay there again when in the area.

Thank Peter M
