Lonely Planet review
This castle is the last word in luxury in town and also boasts a high-end restaurant. Most rooms are tastefully furnished in antiques, a massage can be arranged for your arrival, and there's a sauna and steam bath. The terrace restaurant enjoys staggering views over the river. Stay 10 nights and you get a night on the house (which might be useful if you happen to be broke by that stage). Closed over the winter.
