Lovely hotel, clean and friendly staff. Excellent breakfast with delicious croissant. Food in the restaurant mixed reviews, soup unbearably salty but waiter offered to change it to another choice without fuss. Would definitely visit again.

Our server was excellent -- friendly, efficient. Food was outstanding...catch of the day for DH and another fish dish for me. Everything was perfect in taste and presentation. We ate on the patio and had a beautiful view of the castle wall and cathedral.
