"Absolutely Wonderful!"
Overall score5.0/ 5
We had an amazing experience even when we had issues with our reservation the staff was able to book us a room for the night and everyone was extremely pleasant and took very good care of us. The Castle itself was so beautiful. We would definitely recommend this venue to our friends.
