Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A last minute random booking turned out to be a nice manor-like room (look at those pictures!) that got us WOW! Service was very nice as well. Breakfast covers all basic needs. Remember to take your on shower gel and shampoo. There is no refridgerator in the room but there are a kettle and cups for making coffee or tea.

I stayed there a few nights and I really liked the place. It was cosy and nice, the administrator was very helpful and friendly and the food was great. The location was also good although Põltsamaa isn't quite big.

We had to stay one unplanned night in Poltsamaa and local people suggested us that this is best place to sleep in town. Interior looks just amazing - it is an old building filled with antic furniture, old photos etc, but it is still very comfortable, it is not a museum. Rooms are simple but very affordable and you can have rooms with a bathroom inside too. There is also stylish restaurant inside and we regret we didn't try food there.
