Whole concept was a positive surprise. Room was spatious and fresh. Spa was ok, a bit crowded (no surprise at high season), including unlimited access during the stay. Separate sauna department in upper floor was not that amazing (maybe not worth paying extra unless you are a sauna enthusiast). Best sauna was on the sundeck, above spa pool (access from...

Good rooms and spa. Free wifi and free parking are provided. Breakfasts are good as well. However, the hotel restaurants are overly expensive and dinners are not as good. Overall, an amazing place to spend a family weekend.

Although the rooms are big, the spa center leaves much to be desired. I think it is aimed at children mostly. Four very average saunas upstairs cost extra 7 euro. At paid dinner the waiter refused to bring us another piece of bread and hot water for the second cup of tea!!! Bottled water placed in the room is extra...

Old hospital, modern hotel and lots of time sharing cottages. Some good restaurants. Nice waterpark. The weather was not so good in the beginning of the January. Very windy, but winter was coming (actualy it was already winter, -20 degrees celcius). Nice place, frendly people.

We visited this hotel in November (not for the first time).Good staff, good breakfast, but leak of parking places, fan in the bathroom was out of order, staying water in the sink, wi-fi didn't work till morning. Seems, the hotel couldn't manage with numbers of guests during russian holidays.

Me and my husband were there one weekend. The spa is nice but not that big I expected. It's also full of children so if you want to relax in peace, it's not maybe the best option but children love the place. So it's extremely good for families. We didn't try Angry Birds activity park or ice skating hall but...

We took a last-minute offer, a week in a so called villa-room. A pleasant surprise, although the villas I&II are in a block of flats. Fantastic fully-equipped kitchenette, proper sauna, and best of all things was the balcony - it was huge, with nice sitting-group. If you choose the villas 1or2, be sure to ask for a view... since you...

Relaxing spa facilities, fun waterpark area. The rooms are fresh and clean - we stayed in the Castle part and were pleased with amenities. The outdoor park area is quite nice and beautiful. Great for a weekend getaway near Lappeenranta.
