Pros:The castle was amazing. It looks recently renovated so it doesn't have that spooky feel. There isn't much to do on the grounds except relax and enjoy the scenery which is perfect for a romantic night's stay.
Cons:Just a note- when booking the castle, not all rooms are in the castle itself. You may be in the quarters in the back.
