The castle and grounds are absolutely gorgeous! We stayed in one of the carriage rooms which was spacious, updated, and clean. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Hermione’s had delicious dinner offerings and while we didn’t try 1080’s dinner, the breakfast fare was perfect.

from the moment we entered the front gates, we knew we were in for a wonderful experience, Everyone - without exception was so kind, courteous, and helpful. The Castle and the rooms were amazing. We dined in the Clubhouse and that was terrific as well. When we return (not if), we will plan to spend more time at this amazing property. Thank your entire staff for us, staff members are you biggest asset and they certainly demonstrated that every moment.
