Good Points: Decaffeinated coffee in room - excellent! Very comfortable bed, clean and pleasant bathroom. Very good chef.Bad Points: Restaurant staffed buy daft teenagers who don't understand service and had to fetch 'someone else' to write our order down. Heavy TV fell off its stand - very dangerous. Overhot room, even hours after radiator turned off. Chugging noise all night long heard from bed area - suspect fridges in bar below: most annoying. Lots of vehicle noise from main road. Extremely creaky floor.General review: Definitely would have felt ripped off if I had paid the £70 on my original web enquiry. Shopped around and got same room for £50 but still dubious value considering issues above. The Castle and Ball, being the biggest hotel in town is trying to be grandiose but does it on the cheap by hiring child waiters and doing shabby maintenance. If you stay here, insist on a room that faces away from the street - there is a lot of noise.
