We loved the fact that it was a small hotel in a quiet location. It has lots of personality and a friendly staff. However, room 22 is not one I can recommend, as the mattress on one of the two beds is not worthy of the name--the springs running up and down the so-called mattress every 18 inches or so made it feel like a bed of nails. Impossible. In addition, I had booked a room with a castle view, which I didn't get. So, while I would stay in this hotel again, I would make sure to test the beds before getting all unpacked.
