They made me a fresh vegan breakfast
More staff needed in the bar. Service was very slow.
The decor, staff was very polite & professional, accommodations were very nice, pricing was reasonable for what you get.
Only that most all the amenities were closed due to COVID 19. No fault to hotel, but would have liked to use what was available during my stay.
Astonishing Castle design with a sense of luxury inside the hotel. Great customer service at request.
The first room had not been cleaned properly, unfortunately used cloths and condoms were found. After a complaint, however, we received immediately a new bedroom with original castle stone wall.
Breakfast was outstanding, worth the additional initial cost with room rental. Meals were tasty. Number of staff to service clients in the restaurant seemed a bit low. Additional staff at peak times would have reduced wait times.
There was nothing we did not like. What proved a little inconvenient was that the room safe did not function properly, and one of the face towels was not replaced . Not a big deal.
Beds lovely and comfortable
