We were there during the day and it didnt impress us much. Went back during the night when the lights are on and the transformation is great. Do visit during night time.

Not stunning in the day time but worth a look. We had awalk around, took a few photos then left. I expect when lit at night it comes into its own.

The 3 remaining buildings sit quietly in the landscape by day. They display a beauty of design and proportion which delights the eye. However, those who wait until 5:30 pm will be rewarded with wonderful lighting and, on still nights, reflections of great beauty.

This beautiful pond surrounds the remains (reconstructed) of the Palace. There are well laid paths through lovely pine trees. At night the area is lit up creating a beautiful reflection of the palace

I mean it's ok, but I found it overrated, went night time, quite busy, 3k won, for a walk around a pond, a bit meh. So don't set your expectations high, and you will probably enjoy.
