      When my wife and I stayed at Fitzherbert Castle, we found the place to be very clean and well-maintained. It had a good location near the city centre. It also had amenities like unlimited WIFI with fast connections. Fitzherbert Castle is a lovely place to spend a vacation with family and friends. I would love to go back to this place.

      My stay in the hotel had been comfortable and satisfying. They staff were friendly and they kept the place (room and outside) clean and tidy. We always had beverages' sachets top-up daily which was nice, especially when we came back from the cold weather outside!
