This medieval castle is owned and operated by a private family who do a marvelous job of getting every thing just right. I was quiet overwhelmed by the ambience which is why I added 2 more nights on to the original booking of 4 nights. Also they brew their own beer which I found very good. The restaurant facilities are quit extensive and provide excellent food and service which is why they have many visitors from around the island for lunch and dinner. At afternoon coffee time the home made cakes and waffles are hugely popular. Most evenings they have theme nights with buffet dinner and live entertainment which are very popular with families. After dinner many people enjoy the tranquility of the establishment by taking a walk right around the outside of the mote which surrounds the castle.
The rooms are a bit small but comfortable with a roomy and well equipped bathroom, but who wants to spend more time than nessecary in a place like this. My room was facing the court yard which was well patronized till late at night and I had to shut the windows to keep out the noise of people having a good time. The castle is reasonably central to visit nearby beaches and various sight seeing places and it's always a delight to come back to this magnificent place. Breakfast is also something to look forward to, with many items changing every morning. I'm a huge fan of smoked salmon and that was there every morning.
Its a beautiful place and I wish I could spend some time here again.
