          We may need to do some laundry while we're staying here this month. Are laundry facilities available? Or, is there a public laundry nearby? Thanks for any information you can give me. Patricia Karbs

          No laundry on site. But you are close to town. No problem.

          I would book as early as possible for best room selection. You are in the high season although it is generally much less busy in early June and gets much busier as the month goes on. August is the busiest month. Enjoy!

          Planning our trip in 2018, getting some information ahead of booking. What time of year would be optimal? We are thinking July or August, any thoughts? How many months in advance should I book our stay? We are a family of 4, possibly up to 6- would 2 rooms be advisable? Our children are all 18 plus years of age, therefore beds and bathrooms are one reason I thought of having 2 rooms. Are there any suite type rooms, or rooms that are adjacent? Thank you.

          Yes to two rooms. July and August are busy and therefore expensive. The castle on has 38 rooms.
