The hotel feels very old and outdated, there was a bit funky smell in the rooms and lobby. But sauna and good breakfast was included in the price as well as a bottle of water. We phoned the hotel directly to make a reservation and got even better deal, I recommend to book directly from hotel.

This hotel is not really a luxury one but the location and surroundings makes it luxurious! I strongly recommend the footpath nearby in the woods and by the sea. It is very easy to follow 2,5 kilometres but beautiful rocks and the sea. There is a small path to the beach very near and we went swimming late night and also first thing in the morning. Service was very nice, easygoing and friendly. I would have liked to have proper curtains in the windows though. It was very sunny and hot weather and we woke up very early when sun was shining straight to my face...

Staff of the hotel was extremely welcome and helpful. We stayed 3 nights and saw 2 shifts, they were cheerful and nice. Outdoor facilities were superb! Terrace with perfect view, lounge area on the grass, chaize-longs, beach nearby, cosy and beatiful forrest next door for hiking. These were 10 out of 10! Food served during the day was nice and always with desserts) Wine has a good variety. Parking is free. -- We did not like pillows at all. For overnight stay - ok. But if you stay longer, either administration should change these pillows or you gotta bring your own! It was hot in the room when we stayed there, we had no air conditioning. To open windows were meant to be eaten by mosquitoes) Beside the room itself needs renovation, the outdoor facilities and nice staff made our stay pleasant. If they change the minuses people write here about - this would be a perfect place to stay minumum for a week for you will have everything to have fun around.

Pieni mutta mukava hotelli. Siistit tilat ja ystävällinen henkilökunta. Huoneet 2hlön huoneita, kalustukseltaan maltillinen mutta toimiva. Useamman yön viihtynyt ja tulen käyttämään jatkossakin! Big recommendations for this hotel! Propably not the best choice for families because of 2 person rooms. Although fits perfectly for a single person or a couple.

The staff was very helpful and kind. The view to the sea good. Breakfast was tasty, plentiful and hot. And the bed was great. All in all we got a very restful night. And that's it. The decor of the place is very outdated. And this, to my mind takes this palace down.. Wish they would update the rooms and it would be a perfect place.

Perched on the beach on the Gulf of Finland, this a great place to stay, we have been twice the latest visit for my son's wedding. The entire event was centered on the hotel and thanks to the proprietor, her partner and the amazing staff, who put in long hours and worked really hard to make the day wonderful. The rooms are basically furnished with nice bathrooms and most with amazing views. The restaurant has a breakfast lunch and dinner buffet as well as an a la carte dinner menu, the food is varied and excellent. There is lots to do in the area including forest walks golf and fishing. The location is a little out of the town but that really is an advantage and lends to the peace and quiet. We will be returning.
