Gotta say fabulous fun.
Very eclectic environment, wonderful staff, and eccentric too.
The main hotel is great, my room was very small, but just what I needed.
Parking is tight, but off the road, take advantage of that.
Defo would stay again

... right from the motorway was very straight forward and expedient. I managed to find a parking garage easily right under the centre area where I wanted to explore - and had a lovely dinner by the canal. I only explored right in the central area where I was, and wandered down the canal walkway for awhile to enjoy it, the vibe, and the beauty across the river to the huge castle. It was a hive of activity with locals and tourists alike. I ...
... don't get numb hands, but this kept making my trousers fall down, which isn't a good look at my age.
There was another fortuitously placed playground by the basilica walls, at the highest point of the area, so I had a ready reason for sitting down again - playgrounds are free, cafes are not - and Squirt could impress the native kids with her monkey bar skills again. It's important when you travel with a child that you make time every day for them ...
