Noormarkun ruukki on enemmän kuin majoituskohde. Se on upeasti hoidettu entisajan ruukkimiljöö, jossa on edelleen tavallista elämää. Olimme varanneet majoituksen yhdelle yölle, mutta täällä olisi viihtynyt pidempäänkin. Majoitustiloja alueella on useita. Meidän majoituksemme oli Sahalassa 2. kerroksessa, jossa huoneen lisäksi oli viihtyisät yhteiset tilat: sohvat, tv ja keittiö. Sahala on Noormarkun sahan entinen konttori, ja heti sahan ja kosken vieressä, joten sijaintikin oli erittäin mukava. Ilmastointia huoneessa ei ole, mutta meille riitti se, että sai auki hyttysverkolla varustetun ikkunan. Helteellä toki tässä huoneessa voi olla tukalaa. Lähellä Sahalaa sijaitsi myös erillinen kuntosalirakennus, jota emme kylläkään käyttäneet. Kävimme myös molemmilla opastetuilla kierroksilla: sahakierroksella ja puutarhakierroksella, jolla kävelimme myös Villa Maireaan (ei sisälle, kaikki kesän kierrokset oli jo loppuun varattuja). Oppaamme oli ystävällinen ja mukava, mutta pääsääntöisesti hän on Villa Mairean opas, joten tieto, mitä häneltä sai oli aika yleisluontoista. Puutarhakierroksen olisi tällä kertaa voinut nimetä Ruukin yleiskierrokseksi. Meitä se ei haitannut ollenkaan, mutta jos joku odotti opastusta puutarhan ihmeisiin, niin sitä ei kierroksella saanut. Vierailun täydensi Noormarkun klubin herkulliset ruoat - illallinen ja huoneen hintaan kuulunut aamiainen sekä vielä lounas opastettujen kierrosten välissä. Illallista ja lounaasta teen oman arvostelun Noormarkun klubin alle. Aamiainen oli erittäin hyvä ja monipuolinen buffet-aamiainen. Noormarkku Works is more than an accommodation destination. It is a very well-kept works milieu where people still live and work. We had booked accommodation for one night, but could have easily stay here longer. Our accommodation was in Sahala on the 2nd floor, where in addition to the room there were comfortable common areas: sofas, TV and kitchen. Sahala is the former office of Noormarkku sawmill, and right next to the sawmill museum and rapids. I think that the location was very nice. There was no air conditioning in the room, but it was enough for us to open the window (it had a mosquito net). In the heat, of course, this room can be uncomfortable. We also went on both guided tours: a saw mill tour and a garden tour. Villa Mairea tour was not available - those tours are booked till the end of summer already. Our guide was friendly and nice, but since she is the guide of Villa Mairea, the information we received from her was quite general. This time, the garden tour should have been called Noormarkku Works' general tour. We weren’t bothered at all, but if someone was waiting for guidance on the wonders of the garden, he might be disappointed. During our visit delicious food was served at the Noormarkku club. We had dinner and breakfast, which was included in the price of the room, as well as lunch between guided tours. About the dinner and lunch, I will make own review under the Noormarkku club. Breakfast was very good buffet breakfast.…
Place should have four stars instead of three. Beautiful and romantic area, nice spacious rooms. Everything was clean and dandy. Good breakfast. Free gym and sauna. Unfortunately on Saturday the restaurant was closed, so we had to go elsewhere.
We enjoyed very much our one night at Noormarkun Ruukki. The historical area is definitely worth exploring on your own. We borrowed bikes from the reception and had a lovely time biking around before dinner. Highly recommended to do this, borrowing bikes was free of charge. Our room in the old Sahala building was very clean and spacious and decorated to suit the surroundings. The only slightly negative part was that the room got a bit hot during the night. The restaurant was nice and we enjoyed having a glass of wine at the sunny patio, overlooking the fields.
+ A charming, well maintained old industry area + Free bike rental for hotel guests was a great possibility, easier to get around a rather large area + Dinner was delicious and there are some local specialities available. Goat cheese salad was probably the best I've ever eaten, burger portion BIG. - Hotel room was nice, but some details could be better: e.g. bathroom was quite small and floor was all wet after taking a shower - Breakfast had a limited tea selection - Hotel rooms are rather pricy (at least during summer season) considering the location in countryside and the fact that rooms are not exceptionally luxurious
This is a longtime developed family business in rural countryside close to Pori city 10 mins by car). Rooms are located in old countryhouses from late 18th century and well maintained and carefully restored. Facilities are fully modern (WIFI seems to work outside areas too!) except no A/C in the rooms. Area is beautiful respecting the life of the past in form of iron founfry and saw mill and other buildings and sites. Breakfast was excellent with good variety. Dinner presented local flavors of elk/moose meat, fish and local produces. Just fab! Everything is clean, service is warm and happy. If you for once want to enjoy ex-city accomodation this should be your choice!
I had two nights with my wife. This is the ex HQ of and old company, with several houses spreaded in a nice green area near to a lovely river. Great and interesting walking area in a nice garden with a lot of history to see. We had a beautifully room at Villa Vainiola, on the second floor. Large room, extremely clean (key point for us!) and cozy decoration. The service was excellent with professional and friendly crew. We had an excellent dinner in the restaurant with perfect service and very good food. We suggest to try and enjoy it !!! Our sincere congratulation to the management!
Hi from beautifull Finland from the way back from Noormarkku. I have stayed 2.5 days in the Forester's room in Haviluna. Was a perfect stay. As first, no locks on the doors, why, when it is a house, where guests are feeling at home (my first experience with no locks on the doors out of my home ever). Room was big, cosy, made in a style you could feel the atmosphere 100 years back (except Wifi, that was not only fast, it was also reaching to nearly all the surroubrings we needed and Wi-Fi was not there 100 years back :) ) No TV, another huge PLUS point, don't watch TV reality, go out and mingle, walk around, do all the beautiful things You do in a forest. Food excellent and the staff really friendly and professional. We also went to see Villa Mairea, build 70 years ago and still fantastic cosy time home with inner and outer design, that is still hardly beaten. You know Fallingwater House in Canada? Villa Mairea is inspired by this masterpiece. Beautifully, functional, need to see.. The gardens planted fantastically, good division between pine forest, grass and open space with other trees. So long story short, if You plan a business meeting, business social together or anything else like this, You go there. Your business partners and Your employees will be gratefull. Thank You AA guys, was a great stay…
This place has service level and settings. Both are right on the money. We were 13 persons and spent two nights and days at Ruukki surroundings. Best lodging in western Finland. Meetings were held at Villa Ettan. Facilities are up to date, built with taste and quality.
Stayed here for a week, focussing on an extensive work-related writing task. The environment was well suited for this, and the staff were very considerate and understanding concerning my 'mission'. The meals were simply outstanding. Where else can you have venison that was hunted down on the hotel grounds, not far from the restaurant itself...? The Ruukki area is very interesting. As a guest, you feel like you're staying in a historical setting. I enjoyed the guided tours at the Alvar Aalto - designed Villa Mairea, and at the Ruukki museum too.
We stayed here for one night in July and fell in love with the place. No reason to stay in Pori when you can come to Noormarkku! The place is very nicely renovated and fortunately it has been done with the history in mind. You can go for a little walk by the river and marvel at the old buildings and Finnish architecture. Our room was in Vainiola and overall it was a great experience. The place is filled with Aalto furniture and while modern, you can still feel the history. The bed was very comfortable and with a nice view. Only downsides are the thin doors that don't offer much of a soundproof from the corridor, and the missing of proper curtains and blinds because there really is some sunlight at night during the Finnish summer. We had dinner at the Works' restaurant and that was a recommendable experience. The food was delicious and made with local ingredients. Eating here also saves you the trouble of deciding where to go. Five stars for breakfast, too. Friendly staff and beautiful surroundings make this a must. …
