Fodor's Review

Play king or queen for a day at this spectacular Victorian Gothic mansion, once the abode of the earls of Dunraven and still a wonderland, thanks to 840 acres of French-style gardens outside and the 36-foot-high, 100-foot-long Minstrels' Gallery inside. The castellated mansion is enormous, with vast stone arches and oak wainscotting, all showcased in the baronial central hall, replete with decorated ceiling. Too bad the period air is sullied by some bright color schemes. The eight "staterooms" in the original house are the most sumptuous, but most rooms have superking-size beds and all have heavy drapes and carpets.
