Stayed for 2 nights in December with my boyfriend, and although this was a real castle, much of the castle was blocked off for viewing. You couldn’t go around to the back (they block it off for deers), they have a dungeon but not open to the public, and there were no tours of anything in the castle. The castle/hotel has this ominous eerie feeling to it, but it added to the experience. Although our rooms were very very small, the bathroom was modern and had good water pressure/temperature. Hotel staffs were pleasant (some more so than others), although you do have to proactively ask about the history of the castle (which they printed out 4 pages for us to read). One would think that they would provide this information at the time of check in.
The beds were average; however the pillow firmness was horrible. The pillow had no firmness at all.
The heater also took a while to kick in, but when it did it was like an oven in our room. Maybe it was this or something else that awoke me the second night of my stay. I woke up to weird feeling that someone was in the room or near our room. It was only the next day that i was informed that there may be a ghost in the castle. I didn't see anything, but i usually can sense when there is another presence around.
Once you arrive back to your hotel, there is pretty nowhere else you can go around the area. AS it was usually too dark to venture out again, we ate our dinners at the hotel restaurant which was decent. we had a usual table next to bear and the driving santa clause (you have to be there to know what i mean) which was much nicer than the dining room area. It was nice to have a beer/wine in front of the fireplace in the lobby as well.
breakfast is included and consisted of the typical european fair (bread, hard boiled egg, cheese, and ham)
overall it was a cool experience to have stayed in a castle and if you are around the area, I definitely recommend at least a one night stay there.
