A great combination of the modern and traditional, this is a well designed hotel. Comfortable amenities, my well lit room had big windows with a view over the little town street, and to see the castle ruin on top of the wooded hills, what a great place to take in the full atmosphere and sense of truly being on holiday ! Friendly and helpful staff and a superb restaurant. I was really impressed.

Good location, excellent food. Hotel will be extended and no doubt be further improved by early 2013 (see negative).

We were not informed that the restaurant was closed on our day of arrival. Building work next door now underway until early 2013 = noise from 07.00 hrs.

The Hotel DE website does not offer possibility to enter in a standarised way a request for baby beds or even that you are traveling with a very young child. In ou case, the remark we made on this when booking was not picked up, so we slept with our 3 year old boy rolling in all directions between us.

The restaurant was excellent so we dined there both evenings.

Although the room had a sign saying NO SMOKING we would like to advise the hotel to keep the room for non smokers only.
