    I suppose you could book for just one night...

    As for the special rooms, I know the best room have "castle view".... which means you can watch the MK fireworks from your room :)

    Apart from that, Im sorry I cant be more helpful....

    Sounds like a GREAT plan! :)

    It CAN be booked just for one night and perhaps the most special rooms are the ones in the main building rather than the outlying blocks of rooms.

    I should say that in my opinion, you need at least a few nights to soak up the feel of the place. I understand the cost implications of course but of the times we've stayed, the one where we stayed just a couple of nights I didn't really "get the point" and felt it was pretty overrated.

    When I stayed there for longer I swapped from feeling "overrated" to really really great but "overpriced" but many would argue with me on that point as well.

    My DW and I have stayed at the GF loads of times..it is now like home from home to us.
    As has been said, yes you can book a room for one night but a longer stay if you can afford it is recommended.
    There are special rooms available and as Keith said most of them are in the main building which is concierge. We`ve never stayed in the main building as personally we can`t feel the need to use the concierge service, hence why pay the extra cost??

    We normally opt for a room in the Sago Cay building overlooking the marina. This is a fairly quiet spot, being located away from the swimming pools which can be a bit noisy at times. If you are lucky, you may be able to secure a room there facing the castle at the MK which we did one year and it was amazing.

    For a really special meal, then V& A`s cannot be beat, although you need to make an early reservation and take a large wallet with you! :lol:
    Citrico`s is my preferred second choice if you intend dining at the GF.

    I have stayed twice and had MK/Castle views both times. It is amazing to sit on your balcony and watch Wishes and the castle lit up at night.
