This hotel was comfortable, but basic. Location little distance from scenic areas and shops although a small supermarket directly opposite was handy , with helpful staff. Breakfast had a moderate selection, and we did enjoy two dinners from the hotel restaurant. Service seemed to centre around the coffee shop and bar rather than hotel guests. Internet service was good. This was a moderate priced hotel which would be conveniently located during the summer opera season at the castle.
"Good wellness hotel in quiet, natural beauty spot"
The hotel offers a wide range of wellness options including marked forest trails, swimming pool and sauna. The restaurant offers either a fixed price buffet or a-la-carte dining. The a-la-carte was better quality. The room was OK and the views were of the forest and lake.
The hotel grounds include trenches from the Finnish-Russian war and associated armaments, including artillery equipment and a Soviet T34 tank which adds a dimension of quirkiness.
Hotel staff were friendly and spoke good English. We got some great tips about where to go in the surrounding area and towns from them.
The hotel worked well for us as an overnight choice. The immediate surroundings are beautiful but the forest walks a little uninspiring.
