We had a junior suite...loved the color scheme (pastel yellow and pink), great big room, but layout is odd. They built the bathroom in the middle of the room, so you can actually walk around the 'cube' that contains the bathroom, water heater, and closet. The tub is narrow. Bed was very hard. Loved, loved, loved the side chairs. Double door entrance is a bit odd, but thick castle walls are hard to work with. We were on the same level as the elevator, no stairs.
We bought the spa pass for 2 hours. Steam room, sauna, pool, sun deck, and Finnish foot bath (walk through 1 shallow pool of luke warm water, then 1 of cold water, both with pebble floor). My husband really liked the foot bath although I didn't care for it. I loved the jets in the pool.
Beautiful views, lovely courtyards, cute little chapel. There's a path above the hotel, we didn't take. A small grotto with a status of the Virgin and a small fountain. Gellato stand was nice, piped in music. They only had the pizzeria open for lunch and dinner, but the meals were good and the price a relief after Venice. Lots of locals. Breakfast was in a lovely room, decorated in pastels with paintings of 18th century ladies on the walls. This room is partway up the main stairway.
Armory museum - Free, and on a taped audio feed. We had it to ourselves. Interesting if you like that sort of thing (we do), but tape goes fast. Some pieces are reproduction.
We didn't have a car because we took the train from Venice. Getting there we used a taxi. Easy enough if you book in advance. However, there really isn't that much to do if you don't have a car. We walked around the two villages you can see from the castle.The funicular was closed until 5pm the 1st day due to maintenance. Very quaint. Nice churches.
After the noise of Venice, this was a very nice change. Excepting the hard bed and odd bathroom, I loved it.
