Stayed overnight at the hotel, great place, the nostalgia of being in the courtyard of a 15th century castle is very overwhelming. Overall the location is good and the room with the balcony is quite nice.

The problem is that the staff could be more friendly and accommodating, being vegetarian there was almost nothing to eat on the buffet dinner except for an asparagus/potato baked. The chef did not want to make the effort to make something vegetarian for us and the staff insisted on our joining the buffet which I did not understand as you want to pay for eating not looking.

Eventually had to go back to the town to get to eat something, this should not happen at such a hotel. Also sometimes it is difficult to understand few things, the hotel puts the breakfast spread in one room and then to eat it you have to cross the hallway go through another room and then look for space to sit, so probably if you missed the jam, go without it or make the effort.

We booked a spa package for two days. The spa area is nothing special, any decent five-star hotel would have a swimming pool, whirlpool and sauna. Our room was large but the decoration was of doubtful taste. Breakfast and dinner (we had half board) were of execellent quality. Service is very kind and attentive. Regarding the spa treatments, yes to the facial massage, an absolute no to the back and neck massage.

Room tip: Rooms in the Schlossparkvilla seem to be more modern but you will be in a detached building, may be a bit inconvenient to reach the spa area, specially in winter

This is an excellent hotel in every respect. The hotel is built on the grounds of a small medieval castle, with the town museum also on the property,. Everybody I interacted with was multi-lingual, helpful and friendly, The cuisine was amazing, with both nternational and regional choices. There are Spa services available but I cannot comment on them, except to say I would expect them to be top notch like the rest of the establishment. I gave it 5 stars for "Value" (although it is expensive) because "you get what you pay for" here. Parking is well sign-posted but involves a short walk. Internet is not free, but is reasonably priced.
