Love sitting out by the river on a warm Summers day here. The atmosphere is always great, and the views of the castle and the bridge are beautiful! While I haven't actually stayed in the hotel, the location cannot be better. Right in the middle of the city, in walking distance to local pubs/restaurants.

I booked a Castle View room for a one night stay for my husband and myself. For €250 we found this hotel very basic. Firstly you can see from the picture below the "view" is the castle wall and a generator that runs on the other side of the wall. Light bulb missing in room, small tv with no signal....
