My husband and I stayed here for approx. 3 months. Our initial interaction with the owners was great, and throughout our stay, things were made pretty easy on us--great view of the castle and great location to access pretty much all areas of the city. Also, when we left, the owners gave us some old furniture from a new B&B they had recently bought, which was obviously greatly appreciated!
One of the downfalls is that the guest kitchen is quite small and is shared with all other guests who do not have their own private kitchen in their rooms. Also frequent tours were given to prospective guests while cooking. My personal biggest problem was that we were told to use the basement storage room for some extra luggage and my $400 (super great) sleeping bag and a brand new (still in the box) kettle were both stolen from this room. When my husband told this to the owners, their response was very nonchalant and they claimed they "never intended for that room to be used for storage."--which was not what they had said in the beginning.
Overall, the stay was good, but I feel it important to mention these downfalls (don't put anything in the "storage room"!!)
