About
The first written record of Vihula manor in Lahemaa National Park dates back to 1501. At the time it belonged to the Danish baron Hans von Lode. The manor was damaged by fire during the Great Northern War, after which it was purchased by the Wekebros, who bequeathed it to their daughter's family, the von Helffreichs. In 1810 it was purchased in turn by Alexander von Schubert. The manor you see today at Vihula was built during the era of the von Schuberts, between 1820 and 1880. It has since been fully restored and renovated, and now houses a fine restaurant and luxury spa hotel. It hosts concerts, conferences, weddings and other receptions.Did you know...?- Visitors are welcome to wander the grounds and admire the views of the manor

Stayed in the Vihula manor with my boyfriend for two nights in July. We took the bikes and cycled to nearby fishing village which was so nice! Recommend cycling when you’re there! Also the girl renting the bikes and minigolf etc was so nice and friendly that it made us feel home.

The manor itself is the most beautiful in Estonia and definitely worth the visit. Sadly the spa is closed until November, but as it is summer, you can find suitable swimming places nearby.

Two negative things were that as it is also the thunder season, the rooms were a bit moist and hot, the ventilator doesn’t work too good and the windows are small, so there wasn’t much fresh air in our room. Also the main restaurant is closed and the food at the Kaval Ants’s tavern is quite average considering what you can get from other places in Estonia with this price. I was wondering as they have their own garden, why aren’t they using produce from there? For example fresh tomatoes instead of tasteless cherry tomatoes? I recommend taking a short car ride to Võsu and have dinner at Wöse instead as we had lunch there and the fish soup was amazing!

Otherwise nice visit and I am happy we finally went there!

We have been here before, spending spa weekend. And now we discovered that they hold concerts here as well. The manor complex is lovely. True reflection of real Estonian nature at it's best. Summer is the best, the smell, these colours..

A good place to stay in northern Estonia when visiting Lahemaa National Park. This is a fairly large establishment with many buildings of accommodation, museum etc. We were in a separate building and the bedroom was up steep stairs. A pleasant enough room with a spa bath. The heater was in a ridiculous position that was a real trip hazard for the sleeper on that side of the bed. Also, the window blind would not close.
Dinner was a tapas style and pleasant and breakfast the next morning was a good spread.

So, in this review I will look back to the restaurant located in the Vihula manor main house. There is also a pub-styled tavern called Kaval - Ants, but I haven`t visited that...yet.

I have had two dinners there quite recently and overall I am really pleased! First time happened few months ago when it was quite quiet in the manor complex. I think that there were approx 10 other quests enjoying the dinner at the same time. Firstly I would like to mention that they had live music playing (a guy behind a piano) at it really created nice atmosphere. I went for a two course - a main and a dessert.

My main was absolutely incredible - I took a smoked pork belly and by gods, it was just fantastic. It had beautiful crisp crunch, meat was really juicy and had smokey flavor to it and with seasoning - they nailed it! It was sided by beer-foam and some cream and berries that went with the dish nicely. Best pork I have had in my life. Period. For the dessert i had honey - carrot cake and it was overall good as well. If pork would be 10/10, then carrot cake would ease out around 8/10. Service - good 9/10 and atmosphere, thanks to the live piano - guy, 8/10. So overall 26/30 (food averages 9/10).

Second time when I had a chance to taste their cuisine was actually around a party-table, so I cannot judge service (although, even the complex was full of people, service was really good) as this was a special occasion. But I would point out the main dish I had which was a salmon sided with potato-mesh and vegetables. Salmon was cooked really well, just a edge being overcooked by sides, but middle of it was fantastic.

So, anyone who visits that region would definitely pop into their restaurant for a good experience!

Of the few rooms we could visit, the manor house is very appealing. We enjoyed the out buildings much more, as they shared a unique history, such as the gristmill and the garage with beautifully resorted vintage cars. Lovely grounds to walk and see the outbuildings.

The food and service at the hotel are of good quality.

Brilliant renovation of a number of decrepit buildings..now converted into a relaxing high-class spa in the middle of a national park. Bedrooms are classy in a variety of buildings. Swimming pool and steam sauna in our building - the carriage house. Couple of places to eat at the spa..from an Estonian tavern to high dining. Wide choice of dishes for breakfast. Great mini-golf course..featuring sights of the Baltic states. Only downside is that there are lots of extras.. so check if things are complimentary or must you pay for it.

We stopped here for lunch after a really gruelling morning. The lunch was a set menu but very pleasant. Alternatives were cheerfully produced for one woman with allergy problems. Drinks were available at uninflated prices, which was a nice surprise. Highly recommended.
