    Our stay at the hotel was excellent. Staff was very friendly upon arrival. They told us how to find the major attractions and offered a complimentary hot drink. The room was spacious, modern and very clean. I expected much less for the price, so was pleasantly surprised. The breakfast was excellent as well with cold and hot options. The hotel is located within a 10 min walk from the castle and the city centre.
