We knew we were in for a special treat when we had to step over the sleeping Irish Wolfhound (the puppy Higgins, the size of a small horse) to enter the lobby. The Manager's pet has the run of the small grounds, and he added a warm and cozy touch to the magnificant hotel property. The puppy's presence was emblematic of the personal touch of the Managers throughout the property, making it a most comfortable stay -- photographs aound the sitting room made one feel right at home. Then again, if you are turned off by the notion of a dog in a hotel, then this may not be the place for you. The staff was most attentive and alert. I cannot opine on the value proposition since I was the lucky beneficiary of a gift certificate covering my visit to the castle hotel. I would certainly love to return to the property some day.
