Fair 4.0
Check room or stay somewhere else
We got to hotel to store luggage at 10 am. We’re told they would get room ready ASAP. After checking several time through afternoon we were told they would text us when the room was ready. Never did get text around 6:00 pm we checked again and finally got to room which was very small. No place to sit without blocking access to bath. Shower wouldn’t turn off. I think we were discriminated against because we didn’t book directly with hotel or Hilton.

Poor value with a view
View of the castle was great. Overall value was very poor - you can get more hotel for much less money elsewhere.

Good 6.0
Older hotel. I expected more from the name and rating of hotel. Needs updating. Not up to standard. The shower never put out hot water. Staff very nice, but disappointed in hotel.
