5 out of 5
Such a cool place, can't recommend this enough. We stayed in one of the places not in the castle and I'd recommend staying in the castle instead. However the ambiance of the main check in area is amazing. The bar and restaurant are fabulous also. We did not have time to do so but the rates on golf were amazing if you are staying on the property.

Pros: Old but that is what I expected and liked.
