A great team welcome you in this art hotel and restaurant in the middle of the Lahemaa National Park. The double rooms with sea view are just fine and all the paintings in the hotel bring you to the museum nearby. Special dedication to the guitar player, great amateur of absynthe at night and smoked fish cooker on day time.
Having seen a special offer on the hotel's website for a weekend break, I emailed to make a booking. A series of half-a-dozen or more messages ensued, ending in me asking whether my reservation had been confirmed for the dates I was after and being told that it had been. So it was disconcerting to arrive only to be told that no such booking existed, especially when it turned out that the lady at the desk was the lady I had been exchanging emails with. She was apologetic but seemed to have no recollection of our exchange at all. Luckily a room was still available, but we had to pay roughly 20% more for it - the discounted rate wasn't offered to us despite me mentioning that was what we'd booked. Our room - a twin with balcony and sea views - was a little under-equipped (in hotel terms) but perfectly clean. The balcony was nice, but offered very little privacy from the neighbouring balconies, with there being only railings between them rather than dividing walls. The separate single beds weren't quite comfortable enough for a good night's sleep, especially with the rather thin walls allowing sound through from the rooms either side and the corridor. Storage was plentiful. The ensuite was decent, although the shower - though sunken in the floor - leaked. The breakfast buffet was surprisingly good, with a more than decent spread of cold and hot dishes. The downside was that the coffee station seemed supplied for anyone who also wanted tea (with e.g. honey available), only that there weren't any tea bags. On the whole, given the popularity of the place due to the attached museum, restaurant and seasonal theatre, organisation and customer service at the hotel could do with an overhaul, and the facilities could be improved.…
The hotel is conveniently located close to Loksa and next to the Art Museum. The bedroom was basic but comfortable. However, the curtains were of a flimsy material and only covered two thirds of the window. This is a basic failure of management. The other major concern was that the chambermaid did not make up the bed for the second night we stayed. The breakfast was a redeeming factor. There was an adequate choice of good, well prepared food. The hotel deserves a higher rating but is let down by certain members of staff. I have no criticism of the restaurant staff who are friendly and efficient.
Nice room, we stayed with family in a family room. Nice view from balcony. We especially suggest to have their breakfast - ovenwarm cakes, different fish, very good coffee etc. The staff is helpful, the bar is also good. Nice winter-break!
Just love this hotel. The location, the view, the staff and the food are all wonderful. A really, really special place. The art gallery across from the hotel is a real treat and an opportunity to see work by a range of Estonian artists. The food in the hotel restaurant is out of this world - even second time around.
