This is a beautiful castle. Unfortunately for today for some unknown reason this beautiful place was closed. Real pity as I would love to have visited the castle inside.

Horrible food. Cheap wine. No good seating. Idea of medieval dinner is good but they can charge more and ask for paid liquor so people drink less but should not give cheap food and wine

Yes. You can book the castle over night. You should read my review of our stay in the castle. The only way to book the castle is with AirBNB. Book early so you can get the date you want.
