    I'm so sorry you had a disappointing stay. The prices vary throughout the year, although we are always running fantastic offers so it's worth keeping an eye for them. I do hope you will visit again.

    The castle and ball does have parking facilities, it doubles up as a public car park. The hotel will issue a permit. Not sure regarding cycle storage.
