"A pleasant HQ for driving to various castles"
The staff is friendly and always ready to solve a problem. The parking is underground. No problem for tiny cars but if you have anything larger be careful. Breakfast buffet was delicious. Rooms are small but as a solo traveler that was perfect for me.
Free Wi-fi is advertised here but it did not work. Kept falling off both mobile and tablet. Also the hairdryer provided was one of those boxes in the bathroom with a hose, these are not very efficient (handle overheats before hair is dry) and in our case fell off whilst we were out of the room causing disturbance to other guests. On a positive note the hotel is in a good location
