                          The bed was very comfortable. The gardens were very nice and nicely integrated with the bar. Everything was peaceful and inviting to relaxation. The location was very good (close to the city center but at the same time in a quiet street).

                          With one exception (the bartender, who was very nice) the rest of the staff was too serious, not too friendly. I have a feeling they wanted to look very professional (and they were) but the practical result was that they also looked cold and impersonal. Some more "human warmth" would have been nice.

                          The hotel is well located and the spa very good. The breakfast was just awesome. I do recommand this place for a week end.

                          The swimming pool was slightly too cold...

                          the staff is very friendly. The building is amazing as it was an old castle.

                          The a/c sucks. They even told me that they don't have a good a/c system. If you open the window you might have mosqitous attack

                          Very relaxing ideal winter break on the build up to Christmas. The hotel was very accommodating and of a relaxed atmosphere.

                          Location, silence.

                          Very long service at the Breakfast. The Breakfast practically no choice - for expensive hotel very poor.

                          Lovely room, comfortable bed, had great nights sleep

                          Tea and coffee facility would have been good. Had trouble getting a chocolate and wine package for our anniversary, eventually had to take our own.

                          Character building with good public spaces and very well appointed and comfortable bedrooms.

                          When we reserved our room we booked for dinner on the Monday night ...but it seems the restaurant is actually closed on Mondays despite all the literature saying it is open daily as per Kempinski's standards. The hotel did try to send an email to advise that the resto was closed but omitted one character from the e-address so it never arrived (and probably would have bounced back to them so they should have known). We ended up in the bar (excruciatingly slow service) with a hamburger rather than a 5 star menu - very disappointing. Such a shame - if we had known in advance we could have reworked our arrangements and gone out that night with dinner in the hotel on the second night but it all got too late.

                          Great location, 5 star in every way. Very comfortable rooms. Make sure you take your swimwear for the spa ! Staff very polite, friendly and helpful.

                          First impressions were amazing and I continued to be impressed throughout the duration of my stay. Staff were professional and very accommodating. The rooms were spacious and clean. I enjoyed the gym and spa facilities which were first class. Overall - excellent value for money.
