  • Nothing to say about beauty and keeping of the various rooms that meet during the visit. Easy to use the visit without a guide, but unfortunately in the top tier accesses are closed, perhaps for security reasons. Overall certainly recommended.

  • I never imagined that this castle was kept so well and was so fabulous. The scenery around is wonderful but inside is all a fairy tale.

  • We attended an unbelievable private function here. The service was amazing. The food was divine! From the cocktail reception in the courtyard to the dinner for 400+ upstairs, service was smooth and food inside was steaming hot and plentiful. We moved to the dungeons for a disco and it was fantastic! If you have a chance, attend an event here!
  • Awesome experience. Just fantastic. The kids enjoyed our time too.
  • Reward evening with a company we work with. Best service and food ever, and the property, the views, the party! Absolutely fantastic piece of history! If you have an opportunity to go, YOU MUST!
  • Overpriced but interesting. The floors shake so I'm not sure it's structurally sound!
  • Excellent castle and not to forget to see the Red Room of princess isabella
