For a recent weekend trip we used search engines to filter out a Hotel with (!) an outdoor pool. Although the pool is not far away, the fact is that the Hotel does not have a pool and even 3 year old kids are charged 15E/day. That makes a family pool affair a Euro 45 idea, very unexpected cost for a castle with a pool.
Internet access at 10E a day will not work in your room, at least not if you booked the Grand suites as the wall are too thick or the wireless device too weak. It will keep yourself running to the hallways to surf or send emails, and back to the room if you wish to write something.
Breakfast is not 'castlelike' , rather without immagination and below anything you would expect.
The Hotel had stated on their reservation form that babies need to pay for the babybed but i had not taken that serious as no Hotel in the world charges for 1 month old baby. To my surprise it was true and we did have to pay E25 on top of the E200 suite. Very forthcoming and customer friendly.
The castle is beautiful from outside, public rooms in decorative inner walls, furniture has not been upgraded since the Hotel opened in the 90'. Service was kind, yet not more than that.
In case you end up having dinner at the Hotel you are looking at E300 a night experience and they are far from providing value for price. If you have the Suite 112 on a weekend you are likely to experience an Italian wedding just outside your window with the obvious collateral impact.
Upon complaining with booking.com that has been very helpful and supportive with the fact that the pool was not stated as additional cost, the Hotel refuses to acknoledge and refund the price. Overall they can't be doing well as the impression is that they are barely surviving. Bring your money elsewhere is our advise.
