Beautiful B and B in a great location- half way between the Old Town and the 'newer' part of the city.
We arrived and were shown to our rooms by the host. I asked him to carry my case to the room as it was 2 flights up and I had injured my hand. Firstly he showed us to our rooms. I was in Prince Noir which was absolutely lovely- huge, truly huge, tastefully decorated in neutral tones.
I waited for my case to come up but it never arrived. On checking the host had disappeared and I did not see him at the house at all again for my entire 5 night stay. I found this very odd and disappointing as he wasn't there to ask questions of, directions, suggestion, nothing. He definitely needs to be around for guests to chat with him, even just at breakfast time would be an improvement.
So the room- I found the mattress a bit hard but I understand mattresses must be difficult to get right and I do like mine soft so I cannot hold this against them. However, the room only had a bath, no shower, except the hand held kind. The 'bathroom' is in the actual bedroom so difficult not to get water everywhere if you stand up and use it. I am not a bath person so did not appreciate this, especially having to wash my (long) hair. I wish I had been informed when my room was allocated as I would have asked to move rooms. There were vacant room in the house. Sheets and towels are all white- well they once were. They are now more grey- if you are going to have white linen, it needs to be white. Once it turns grey it should be replaced.
Apart from these couple of gripes the room was wonderful, plenty of light, gorgeous windows and a good view to the castle especially at night.
Breakfast in the dining/lounge room was disappointing for me. Great if you like cake and sweet things- there were about 6 every day. Only plunger coffee available. 2 or 3 different kinds of tea bags.
WiFi was dreadful so you could not rely on it.
Rooms were very well priced.
