10.0 Excellent
Pros:What a fantastic hotel. it is truly stunning and has a romantic feel. So much to look at, it has a stylish modern look that works well with the original castle. The furnishings are beautiful and comfortable through out. Take a look on line at the photos and that is exactly what you get. Everything is of a good standard. The food is lovely but breakfast was a pre prepared buffet and not over hot. In that respect quite expensive when not being cooked to order. I would recommend the evening restaurant as the food is of a high standard and the Proseco was one of the nicest I have ever had. However, do keep your wits about you when the bill is presented. Check it carefully as mistakes do happen. The staff are friendly, attentive and work very hard.
Cons:one of my party complained the bed in there room needed upgrading.
9.4 Excellent
Pros:The atmosphere was great. The hotel staff were amazing. Very helpful and let us check in 4 hours early free of charge, which was awesome after a 7 hour flight. They also ran breakfast a little longer just to accommodate us. And then felt bad for cleaning up around us so they gave us breakfast on the house. I have stayed at many hotels(mostly 4 or 5 star) and this was by far the best experience of them all.
Cons:If i have to look for something to complain about. Id say the gym facility, because it didnt have a big range of equipment. But thats just nit picking.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Everything Decor, music, food
Cons:No complaints
