Thrilled with our choice
The Butler House has it all. The location was ideal. We parked within feet of the entry door. We were greeted by Freda with warmth and enthusiasm. She suggested we walk to the castle which we did and it was great. She also suggested a restaurant for dinner called Petronella which is one of the coolest places we have ever eaten. The building is from the 1600s. It was also near the Butler House. The room was great and spotless. Our room overlooked the gardens and had a view of the castle. Everything was just wonderful about the Butler House. Thanks!

The hotel gardens are stunning!!! We have never seen a hotel so we’ll situated with such gorgeous gardens. The room (we got a junior suite) was positively presidential. Consider a garden-view room, because it is totally worth it! We have stayed at more expensive hotels on this trip and hotels with more stars but none compare to Butler House! Loved, loved, loved this place. Somehow I accidentally booked two rooms when we only needed one and Harold gave us extra perks to make up for it. (We only realized my error while checking in.) The only cons were that some of the furniture was a little I outdated and we wished the room had a hair dryer.
