Excellent position, and nicely furnished. We had trouble communicating with them, emails and voicemails not answered, and the proprietor was on holiday.

The Castle view is well located and the breakfast was terrific. Location is perfect. The mattress tilted to one side which made sleeping a little difficult. This is a lovely old building and the tilting mattress may have been do to the floor tilting. The bed needed to be propped up on one side. The bathroom and bedroom where spacious.
