The castle was amazing. It looks recently renovated so it doesn't have that spooky feel. There isn't much to do on the grounds except relax and enjoy the scenery which is perfect for a romantic night's stay.
Just a note- when booking the castle, not all rooms are in the castle itself. You may be in the quarters in the back.
We went there to get engaged. They gave us champagne, wrote congratulations on my desert dish & put rose petals all over the room. It just made our stay so special.
The live music provided by Mark Langan, the quality of the martinis and the excellent array of different foods for breakfast.
Everything was great, although 300 euro was pretty steep for the room! The bar staff are great but service was a little slow at times.
Fantastic staff, fantastic food, fantastic room.
The setting of the castle is breathtaking when you drive up,and the friendlyness of all staff was outstanding, and our room was luxurious.We cant wait to go back!!!!!!!!!!
The staff were all very helpful without being over attentive. The grounds of the hotel were stunning and very peaceful
The peace and quiet of the situation, first time I really enjoyed staying around an hotel, very relaxed and the lounges and grounds wonderful
Just felt that in the dining room at dinner, the dining room was very busy but either the staff were not experienced enough or they do not have agood system for serving the guests. Had to ask four times for a glass of wine, despite this am really looking forward to our next visit to Solis.
Friendly, helpful staff in all areas. Excellent food and wine. Comfort and general peacefulness. Overall very high quality and nothing pretentious.
Brief disturbance by one noisy guest in the middle of the night
Size of the room especially the bathroom. Attention to detail such as up-to-date copies of magazines, herbal tea as well as black, light in wardrobe and two wash hand basins in the bathroom.
There wasn't music or live entertainment in the bars any of the three nights that I stayed there, Friday, Saturday or Sunday. The hotel was a bit too quiet for a Saturday night!
Bed was luxurious, bathroom was exquisite, staff excellent their service was second to none, garden and grounds gorgeous
Food from lounge bar dissapointing
the hotel was very attentitave to us but not to the point of being invasive which we have experienced elsewhere. the room we were given had a disabled bathroom and shortly after we checked in we were offered a room change. a very pleasant stay and will definitely return.
unfortunately we were dissappointed with the main course of our meal. However again no complaints about the staff or the ambiance.
