The image of the hotel was the reason why i decided to stay there. The nice bars and buautiful restaurant in the middle of countryside. At checkin staff was very polite and helpful which is not tipical of hotels in Finland. As i had left my glasses in the car they gave me a pair behind the counter so that i could fill out the registrationcard. My room was at a house ( ratsula) about 300 meters from the main building. This i knew in advance. I was shown from a map how to get there. After arriving to the correct building i was amazed by the beautiful entrance hall with antique furniture and big windows. As soon as i looked into the corridor where the rooms were i was disappointed by the looks of the doors. When i opened the door to my room i was still waiting to see something that i had felt in the entrance hall. To my disappointment the room was small, small windows high up in the wall. I felt like i had entered to a 3star hotel. Dirt in the room and the cleaning crew had left 2 mops on the floor next the the radiator. Furniture was worn and the bathroom tiles looked dirty. When i took a shower the showerfroor was croked and the water was also going to the floor next to the toilet and the sink. This meant that my wife would get her feet wet when doing her hair and makeup. Luckily we spent most of the night at the hotels restaurants and bars, where the service was excellent. We used the room only for sleeping and did not stay an extra minute inside. The chairs and tables in the lobby were so nice that we sat there talking with our friends before leaving the hotel. Breakfast was excellent and had a good variety and the quality was good. I would have wished that the staff could have walked around and poured more coffee/tea but as it was almost the end of breakfasttime they were clearing the tables for lunch. For the price we paid i think the hotelroom was very much overpriced. So when the rooms reach the same standard as the public areas we are willing to come back again. In the meanwile we will use other hotels in the area. They are not as good but the value for the money is in order.
