I loved our stay here, though it had been for just a night, but it was a night when we were the only guests in the castle so we had the place entirely to ourselves. We weren't lucky enough to encounter any ghosts but we had a great time enjoying the plush luxuries! In fact I had been so impressed and touched by our stay that I reviewed it in detail on my website, please do check
I would definitely recommend the castle for anyone who's a history buff with a special liking for ghost stories!
