Service hotel food was wonderful

The Tower with it's history.

Food delicious but portions could have been a little larger.

Very ncie bathroom in diasbled room

The public rooms and gardens.

Smallest hotel room I've ever stayed in right at the top corner of the castle where wi-fi was weak and intermittant. 5 dead wasps on the floor and a live one woke us up, somehow finding a way in even though the windows were closed. Tiny bathroom with nowhere to lay things out and a sink built into the windowsill of a tiny castle window which meant stooping to avoid banging your head. First breakfast was self serve, second was to order but the waiter tried do it from memory then returned to ask again but still got it wrong - my partner who is vegetarian got haggis instead of the beans she asked for. Still, the public rooms and gardens were beautiful and the other staff were pleasant and helpful.

The setting and history of the hotel.

While the banquet was very good it was disappointing that the hotel did not offer any lunch or set evening meal. Also the bedroom was small but clean, however bathroom sink was ridiculously small.
