After walking round the wind swept harbour we thought it would be nice to call in and have some lunch and a drink. No sooner had we entered than a women came from behind us and snapped at us “you’ve got to sign the book “!which we were going to do. As she headed past she continued “You just can’t walk in you know “. Quick exit Having now looked at other reviews for the Castle, it seems that a bad attitude isn’t unusual, you’d think that in these difficult times businesses would be really welcoming. Not so The Castle.

I will start by saying this review could and should have been different. It is a real shame after the really great and friendly service given by most of the staff and the lovely breakfast. All staff were really nice but.... We had a booking of 8 people at a cost of over £1000 In the family party was an 80+ year old lady and an a person with Motor Neurone. On arrival we dropped two of the party outside while the rest went to park cars and carry the bags. On arrival at the desk we were greeted by - "is she with you" in an unpleasant tone. Pointing to my mother. Followed by further rudeness we were told to stand at another part of the bar to check in. Then shouted at for taking up space (the place was empty). Not the welcome you want after a long drive but too late to walk out. The next day we dropped the two members of the family at the tables outside the hotel while the cars were taken to the town carpark. The same unpleasant woman came marching out and said they could not sit there. In the process really making them feel uncomfortable. They explained they were guests and waiting for the rest of the party. They got a lecture about taking up seats and losing them money! We caught up and ordered drinks but got a really frosty face in return. While there another large family group arrived and sat at a few of the empty tables. The Woman came out and gave them a lot of aggression because one and moved a chair. They understandably got up and left. Comically, a lone woman drinking at another table piped up in a rough voice "You tell em Rachel" Four other people who had been waiting to be served but ignored while she talked to friends also got up and left voicing their displeasure. So our message to the great staff, apologies for the one star as your efforts were great. You are losing a lot of money and credibility at the hands of one hostile member of your team. I fully expect Rachel to read this and make up excuses for her behaviour but the pattern of other reviews says it all. Had it not been for the one person our review would have been 5 stars. Prisoner Cell Block H springs to mind...

Response from David James, Owner at Castle Hotel

Thank you for your review, but if you are going to leave a review, its best to give an honest one. On your arrival you were asked politely if the elderly lady and the gentleman were with you as when they were asked if anyone could help them, they couldn't answer. Due to our regulations ,people can't just walk in and stand where they like, also you were asked if you could move your luggage as you were all stood in front of the toilets.There may had not been anyone indoors but outside the tables were full and people need to use the facilities, not too much to ask ,I don't think. Unfortunately we do not provide a daycare centre for relatives left unattended while you go shopping. As for the table who moved the chair , they were told that they could move to a larger table to accommodate them and not sit and block the walkway, and frankly it's no business of yours who I talk to and who I serve. Actually you were rude , obnoxious and treated me and my staff with distain and the premises like daycare for your relatives. I don't make excuses for my behaviour , what about yours? Thank you once again for your review , our credibility and our financial status is fine. Rachel Humphrey

We arrived at the hotel late afternoon and after a short wait we were down to our room on the first floor. We immediately noticed a stale smell worsened by the warm weather and lack of ventilation in the room. I went back to the bar area to ask how to open the room Windows and the manager came to our room and initially failed to open them but after a phone call they were open. We noticed the headboard was thick with dust and showed manager who returned to clean it. We were given two free drinks as compensation. Subsequently we noticed the toilet seat had dirty marks and did not fit properly. There were cobwebs on the light fittings resembling an episode of the Adam’s family and we found an old Jewellery bag of a previous guest in the drawer. We decided not to complain further and soon our holiday as it was already early evening. We went to bed that night and found two hair pins in the bed!! It’s a shame because it’s a great location and they have obviously spent money on creating a spacious room but on this occasion it was let down by staff. Won’t be back.

Stayed here for 1 night during a road trip through Wales, firstly fantastic location in the centre of town, near lovely shops, restaurants, the harbour and the beach. Free car park under a minute away! The rooms were nicely decorated and very comfortable but the best part was the service. Great welcome, very accommodating, great tips about the area and very friendly! Overall great experience
