Having been sent away from the hotel we booked because of a reservation mix-up we were directed to the Red Lion.
We stayed in the “apartment”. It was a double room with bathroom, toilet, corridor and twin room. The décor was very nice – lots of antique furniture and painted medieval wooden roof beams. There were good views of the hills and the rooms were very well heated. As the room faced the back of the building it was very quiet at night.
The bathroom had a bath which was welcome and we didn’t experience any water-pressure problems.
The hotel has some fairly steep stairs and no lift. Although not a problem for us, some people might struggle with their cases.
The location was great with a tram stop a five-minute walk below the hotel and the castle a ten-minute walk uphill.
Breakfast was good. There was a modest buffet of bread, cheese, ham, boiled eggs, cereals and fruit juice. The coffee was excellent but the fruit was slightly elderly and the juice not fresh. overall we were very happy.
I’d recommend the Red Lion: good location with rustic charm.
