The staff weekend very friendly and helpful, we had a problem trying to find the hotel as the road was closed so I called the receptionist was very helpful trying to give instructions. The hotel itself was great and we had an amazing view of the castle, my only niggle with the room was that it was very warm even when I turned the heating off and the shower in the bathroom was twisted so the spray kept hitting the wall instead of the bath and not very powerful

Fabulous view from room 2021
The hotel didn’t blow me away but worth it for the amazing view of the castle. Mid range hotel so you get what you pay for but all and all a quiet city break in a time of covid restrictions that served its purpose. All good :)
