Hotel Kastel's situation is hard to beat - at the very top of the medieval hilltop town of Motovun and fronting the square which also acts as an outside restaurant with terrific views from the tables at the far left from the hotel door. It is a lovely town in which to walk around the walls and explore the steep cobbles down to the lower town gate.
The room that we were allocated was very large and well equipped with airconditioning, which was needed in June, and a bath and shower. The room had good views over the square. There were comprehensive shutters which nullified any noise from below.
We found the reception arrangements not particularly helpful. Each time we went to the desk there was a different member of staff on duty and there did not seem to be much continuity.
The food, served in the attractive setting was good without being special.
