Egg shells found in my breakfast nearly choked me!! Not a pleasant stay in this hotel and shall never come back. The room was exceptionally small, the only benefit was a view of the castle. Would not recommend overall.
I liked the location
The cold shower the power of the shower and the cold breakfast
Slightly dated interior
The entire hotel needs refurbishment !!!
Our room was like a tiny box, looking onto run down buildings, room very worn down
