Stayed for two nights (Fri\Sat) and first impression was very impressed. Clean hotel with friendly staff in a great location. Breakfast over looking the castle was great.
The bottle of wine delivered to room as a gift for our anniversary was a nice touch. But the room really let this hotel down. It was nicely decorated recently. So recently the smell of paint gave me a headache both nights. The masking tape was still left on the smoke detector and parts of the wooden flooring were left unfinished. It also had paint all over the curtains.
The bathroom was a bit dingy with a dirty floor and the corners of the shower and bottom of the shower curtain in need of a really good clean. Also it would've been nice if they had thought to put the heating on before we arrived so it wasn't freezing. In my opinion the room was also far too small it's not the cheapest of hotels so definitely expected more. Think I'll try somewhere else in future.
