We got married at the fortress two weeks ago, and so there was a large number of us staying at the hotel for one night. We all arrived quite a bit before check in time, and the staff were all very accommodating and having known about this in advance, helped to make sure that pretty much all rooms were already ready to go and cleaned, despite having been full the night before. Incredibly friendly service from every single person - they are all lovely!
The hotel itself is gorgeous and very romantic. The views are fantastic, and having balconies in so many rooms gives it an extra special touch. The location is also perfect both for the village as well as the ferries (literally right in front). It was an extremely hot day, but with the sea breezes and many fans available from reception, the rooms were fine. (The staff were also very accommodating with many irons etc!)
Only downside was that sleeping in the rooms above the bar was a bit tough until after 2 am when it shut (since it was a Saturday night and during summer) - it wasn't something we had thought of in advance, especially since keeping the windows open to get the breeze was something we had hoped for. Not a huge issue for us anyway, since we arrived quite late after the wedding party. :)
Breakfast was amazing and the breakfast room has fantastic views as well! Nice to have it included.
Would definitely stay again. :) Thanks to the hotel and its staff for the amazing service and all the help!
