an excellent, clean and modern hotel. Listed as boutique, but standard for us. Excellent location near the castle and all in-city doings within walking distance. Very friendly staff. Great breakfast. Good internet.

I returned 15 minutes before my husband and was offered a hot pot of...

Stayed here for the second time this year. Upon arrival to our room, they had left a "welcome back" note with chocolates - a very nice touch. The room is one of the best I've stayed in; it's very clean, big and comfortable. Breakfast was very good too. Would definitely come back again.
