The combination of fresh locally sourced ingredients, delicate taste nd friendly services makes us to come to eat here whenever possible. Mäntymötelli's Pino restaurant is truly a hidden gem, hopefully more people will find their way here,
Thank you so much for the delicious menu and your friendly service. If i could give more points i would, the motel turns me back to the seventies with all the nostalgic memories. Your home made fettuchini with carbonara souce brought me back to my last holiday in Italy. I also had a walk around and gathered some blueberries and mushrooms. the lake view is spectacular. Cant wait to be back in the area and visit again!! I hope that corona situation is not going to damage your business, the best of luck!!!
Visited here for one night, in one of the "cabins" by the lake. Cabin was clean and comfortable. When we visited mäntymotelli it was still partly under renovation, but accommodation and kitchen services were open. Could be a pretty cool place again some day.
Mäntymotelli is quite small "motel" about 2,5 hours drive from Helsinki. Every week there's an entertainer and dance's. Most of the folks are older people, but we blended in just fine. There's room's and cottages. We had a cottage by the lake, the cottage had everything we needed for the weekend. The Sales/Marketing manager was really nice and the other staff made us feel very welcome. The minus sides: There should have been signs for the grill. Even it is close to the main building, you can't really see it at first because it blends in to the forest colors. There could be shared small grill between the two cottages. There could be rowing boat! Theme evenings could work here :) Some dust in the cottage and spider webs when arrived.
I was in the Mäntymotelli only because of dance. After dancing you can stay there over night. The room was reacently renovated, and the shower was littele but pretty like a caramel. Almost every hotel has separated beds, but here we can sleep in doublebed, you must only say it, when you book a room. Saturdays you can eat from smorgasbord, another days there is only cafe.
