Romantic castle in the forest
Posted Aug 6, 2012 on Hotels
The castle is beautiful, nestled in the woods about 5 kilometers from the center of town. It can be accessed by local bus (1/hour), bike, private car, or taxi (~12-25 Euros). The hotel provides free bikes to those that don't have a car. The included breakfast was nice (typical breads, cheeses, meats, fruits, drinks.) The castle itself is a little run down -- it seems they leverage the concept of the castle, but don't really make an effort for guests. With very little effort, they could make it awesome: nice sheets and towels, nice shampoo, etc. but instead it seemed like the least costly option was provided -- we've have better amenities at most hotel chains. If any upgrades to the castle have been made, they are not visible to guests (plumbing, electric) so it just seems like an old run down castle -- which is amazing by itself, but don't expect luxury.
