Due to a work conference I stayed one night at this castle turned hotel. The location is beautiful and the history impressive. Unfortunately I did not have time for much else than work, but I am sure the surroundings are great in the summer time. The room I had was in the main building and could have used a bit... More

A special campaign offer (including lodging and dinner) attracted us for a weekend to this hotel. The service in the hotel was very friendly and the location very good. We enjoyed our stay of both staying in the hotel as well as good fitness facilities.

Building has interesting history, but nowadays it's a hotel, where You can find restaurants and famous Golf Course for example. Ideal place to have a wedding, big birthday party or some conference. Last couple of times we've had... More

Generally location and the hotel is good. Has been disappointed unacceptable (for the hotel level) and terrible cleanliness, e.g. used disposable kleenex on hat shelf and centuries-old dust on the socket in shower room. I was not searching for evidence but all this, was on visible surfaces.

Hotel Vanajanlinna in Hämeenlinna, Finland is a great hotel for couples and business trips. The main hotel building has a strong history in early 1900. The hotel rooms are a little outdated, but the athmosphere is perfect. Golf court near by.

I was at the villa overnight for business related purposes. My room was clean and warm, but the window was directly towards the road. The sauna next to the lake is small (2 rooms and max 5 ppl fit in each) but is inside of a comfortable cottage. The building is relatively old and in some rooms it was quite... More

I came here for a wedding so the pictursque setting was perfect. The food is very nice and the staff fine. I experienced several of the rooms and wasn't overly impressed with the suites in the out buildings or a twin in the cellar. As rooms go they were perfectly adequate and functional and very pleasent, its just that the... More

Picturesque surrounding, nice huge rooms, perfect location, quiet surroundings, nice lake, everything is just perfect. As it was the end of summers, the weather was also good. The castle is few kms off from the city and you can... More

Good rooms, good restaurant. Very nice staff! Fantastic athmospere. The lake is wonderful. There was 500 people and the food and drinks were around the castle, and we didn't wait! We have our room at Pehtorila. It was very nice house and quiet. Ratsula is far away from castle and if it is raining it is not good. But at... More

If You like castles, this is definitely a place to spend a night or two. Superbly located, on a shore of a lake and just one hour drive from Helsinki, Vanajanlinna is an ideal venue for a family reunion or a team activity. The bigger the group, the better. We went there just for a weekend and even though everything... More
