My boyfriend and I stayed overnight here at the end of April due to needing to be in the area for the weekend.
When we arrived we were checked in quickly and given the key to our room and confirmed our reservation for dinner. On arrival to the room we were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room. We had requested a premier room, and it was a large and spacious as we'd hoped. It was extremely clean and tidy; and the bed was extremely comfortable too.
We then had a little explore of the village and headed up to the castle on the top of the hill, where we were greeted with fantastic views, definitely worth a visit, though maybe drive up as it's a very steep incline.
After that we decided to head back to the hotel for a swim, in the lovely (if a little cold) swimming pool. The pool was furnished in a lovely and clean manner with good amenities.
The food in the restaurant was cooked beautifully and the staff were extremely pleasant, both morning and evening.
The only downside to our stay was the fact the walls were quite thin meaning that we were woken up by the (not so) charming children in the room next to us at 7.15am on the Sunday morning. Even though my boyfriend can sleep through an earthquake and I was using ear plugs they still managed to wake us, and ensured we were awake until we checked out at 11. The other problem, that didn't bother us, but I know would bother some, was we struggled to connect to the wifi and when we did it dropped out a lot.
I definitely wouldn't hesitate to stay in this hotel again if I were to ever need to be in the area again. A lovely weekend (even if it lacked a bit of sleep!)
