  • "The restaurant we had dinner at...New York Restaurant."

    26 November 2017

    "Good rooms and clean bathrooms/shower. We arrived at 15.20 and were taken to our rooms just to find that they were busy installing air conditioning. We had just traveled 600km and were tired and in need of a rest before finding a restaurant for dinner. The workmen were in and out of our room until 17.50, working on wires, etc with loud drilling on the roof above the rooms. I understand the predicament of the owners who were told that they would be finished by 14:00. It would have been nice to have at least an sms to for warn us about the situation. Having said that, the owners recommended a restaurant which was excellent and we had a good night's rest. One thing that could be improved are some new pillows, as the ones we had were lumpy and seemed to be very old. Other than that, the rooms were comfortable and clean."

    "Everything was good. Beautiful room and bathroom and secured parking. Brenda was friendly and helpfull as well.The self service facility was not satisfied. That can definitely be upgraded. I would also suggest at least 2 small plates etc . and switch the fridge on and be cold when guests arrive.."

  • "Castle with no view"

    17 April 2017

    "The room was small and the bathroom down a passage- which I found awkward. Because the window opens onto a shared space, I felt the lack of privacy (And view). The fact that the towel in the toilet was visibly dirty, was unacceptable."

Brenda was very helpful in accommodating some last-minute changes we needed and it all worked out very well. My only gripe is that we could have used fresh towels more often. Other than that we had a very pleasant stay and I would recommend Castle With A View to my friends in the future."
