This is a beautiful hotel in a historical building. We stayed two nights in a two-person room, which is I believe larger than most of the rooms. The rooms are very nice, detailed and tidy, very close to a five-star standard - apart from the few caveats below. The restaurant is very nice and you could do a lot worse... More

I stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel is vety nice looking with the typical Estonian wooden construction of the 1920s. It makes it nice to stay somewhere different. It's a bit outside of the centre of town but it is only about a 15 minute walk which is fine with me. I arrived a bit early and had to... More

Couldn't really fault this place - the staff were friendly and welcoming and my room was spacious and comfy, with a balcony and desk making it a great place for a business stay. Would definitely recommend.

There is a weird thing about Villa Margaretha. The hotel is gorgeous, the rooms are tidy and sweet, the breakfast is satisfying. Everything is like it should be but you still feel that something is missing. That is the attitude of the staff. They completely lack friendliness and empathy. Well, they do what they are supposed to do and help... More

Pleased with the service after a 4 night stay. Old- fashioned theme to hotel throughout and special dress worn by staff makes them easy to identify. We were well looked after. Although a short walk from town centre, this wasn't a problem and we were probably in a quieter part of Tartu. Adequate choice for breakfast which was regularly refilled.... More

A homely hotel close to Tartu university. The hotel is built with a cluster of old houses, which are quite interesting! Construction is a bit strange, narrow stairs and no lift. But the rooms, bathroom and the bed are very good. Everything is clean and fresh. The internet is free and it works without any trouble. Te breakfast is not... More

I took advantage of the Villa Margaretha's b+b for 60 Euro's offer and booked a suite (Room 10). Beautifully decorated and furnished, the bed was comfortable and there was masses of space. My only criticism of the room was that, although there was a stocked mini-bar, there was no access to a kettle or tea or coffee in the room.... More

Every room in the house is different, they have all high standard and styled in art nouveau. Beds are comfortable, the breakfast is great and the service is excellent. While visiting also take the opportunity to try their restaurant, really commendable.

New construction and all the amenities. Rooms are two floors, though there isn't much reason to be downstairs unless you are here for an extended stay. WIFI was weak. Food in the restaurant is quite good. A medium walk to the city center, closer to the bus station.
