Plus points: It is a heritage property and really has a charm of the old times. It feels like living in an old castle. Children probably love it they can play knight. It has a good atmosphere.
Minus points: The place is not well located and it is difficult to find. We were not welcomed and had to look for staff. The staff is not trained and unprofessional. It is very cold in winters. It is too expensive for what it offers! The food is lower average. The bathroom door would not close. There are many nicer places to stay in the town.
