We stayed there in autumn last year and from the moment we entered the hotel until we left, we were treated as if we were the most special guests ever, spoiled and looked after. This place is a real gem, tucked on the side of the uphill road (not a fun climb for people with health problems though), with breathtaking view of the city and one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten in.
A few minor issues:
The depth of the pool is not marked anywhere and usually there is no staff present nearby, so for someone who is not a good swimmer (me...) this could be an issue. I am not sure why there is bar designated to the pool area, since there is no staff there anyway.
I needed online access and was directed to the oldest pc I have seen in a long time - no printer in sight. Definitely needs an upgrade.
A welcome book with info on services is a must and I am not sure why it was not present in our room.
Lack of a mirror suitable for a contact lenses user is a bit of an issue as well.
Those could be improved to make it even better, but overall it is an enchanting hotel to stay in.
