This was our first visit to Castlegrove which we thoroughly enjoyed. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating throughout our stay. The rooms were tastefully decorated with beautiful paintings and period furniture. The restaurant served quality locally sourced food- excellent steaks and cooked to perfection. Look forward to returning .
