    Convenient hotel with friendly efficient staff

    Excellent service from the staff. The hotel was very quiet with few guests. Very convenient location within easy walking of lots of places of interest. Local buses stop outside the hotel and the tourist bus stops near the hotel. We had a club room and enjoyed drinks and canapés every evening. Ask for a room with a view of the castle.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Far from a 5 star experience

    Not what I expect from a 5 star hotel. The hotel had no facilities available: they only have one 2in1 bar + brasserie that was fully booked for dinner and the leisure facilities (spa, gym, pool) were unavailable, apparently due to a fire. The staff were friendly but not particularly effective; no proactive attempt to offer alternative arrangements or compensation for the closure of the facilities. The hotel is also dated, e.g. wood panels and mood lights reminiscing of a 90s wedding venue. The bathroom toiletries felt cheap, the breakfast was basic. Overall, this felt like a very overpriced Bed&Breakfast experience.

    Good but disappointing

    It was very nice, lovely room and location I was very disappointed that the suana and steam room where closed because I rang to check before booking, plus we only got 1 45 minute use of the pool. It was lovely

    Long waits

    As always a fantastic hotel but only problem was only ever one person on the reception desk who was booking guests in , taking phone calls and dealing with enquiries so anytime I had to go to reception it was a very long wait to be dealt with , when I was checking in 2 rooms were in front of me and I’ve never took so long to get booked into a hotel . With the prices the hotel charges I would have thought they could afford to have another person on the desk

    Lovely but limited

    The stay was pleasant enough . I totally understand that the Covid restrictions had a massive affect on the hotel . However not having fresh towels or the tea and coffee not refreshed was not good . These things could have been left outside the room similar to room service . The menu for breakfast was very controlled and limited . For example you couldn’t get yoghurt and Scottish fry !!!!! Only one choice was available
