“Excellent country escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2014

Believe me this place is real gem in the middle of nature. This is 19th century manor, but same time all requirements of 21st century traveller are attended - decent size rooms with soft and comfy beds, all amenities of good 3 star hotels plus some extras. Two popular ski resorts are 8km away and Cesis city is little further away. Special thanks to Lelde, Hotel Manager - she does not hesitate to go all the way to assist you with any question you may have. There are few rooms only (probably 8, or 10) thus no full style a'la carte restaurant on site, but staff is catering to customers requests. And doing it in very, very tasty way. Don't miss local Amata Trout, same day catch from near fish farm, baked or grilled to taste. Breakfast - tasty buffet, all very fresh, local farmers products. Overall, excellent impression and highly recommend this hotel to all readers.

We liked the fact that the country house was in a proper country setting. Good for biking. The owner and staff were welcoming and helpful and did go out of the way to help us out a number of times. Drop to the bus stop being one such instance. The bathroom in our room needs renovation though, had a bot of mold, but we checked the other rooms and they seemed to have been recently refurbished and looked fine. We stayed in Sophie.

Room Tip: Suite Elizabeth looked nice, had a nice shower cubicle.

We had a decent stay here.The owners were very kind and helpful. They dropped us off to the bus stop and packed breakfast for us early morning.Much appreciated. Rooms are clean and it was nice to explore the surrounding areas by cycle which we hired at the hotel.

The bathroom could be a little better. But overall it was a good stay.

We had a good stay here. Breakfast is nice and with a wide choice; you can get eggs on request.
You can also dine here on a fixed three courses menu for 7 LVL. If you have special dietary needs inform the host and they will take then into account.
Sauna is available on demand (25 LVL fixed amount)
Pluses:
- Staff response was friendly and prompt.
- The location is in the Gauja National park and an ideal starting point for walks and excursions in the nature (there are well marked paths nearby the hotel).
- The style of the furniture and other design objects have been chosen with a good taste
- Good food
Minuses:
- We stayed for 5 nights and never the room was cleaned and rubbish bin emptied. This was a bit of a disappointment for this level of hotel.
- Overall the premises of the hotel could be cleaner.
- A bit chaotic the checkout and payment (the bill was 80 LVL higher but in the we settled it as expected).
- Room lamps are not good for reading and no lamp above the mirror in the bath room

Everyone visiting Latvia goes to Riga but, to really understand Latvia and Latvians, you have to get our in the countryside. This was the perfect place to do that. The house is beautiful and is located in a gorgeous country setting. The owners and staff are wonderful. We were there for the Midsummer Night festival and were able to participate in the evening's festivities with the owners, their friends, families and other guests. Everyone was included. We ate delicious food and danced around a huge bonfire until dawn. The room was very nice and the location was perfect for exploring the area around Cesis and Sigulda. If we are able to return to Latvia again, we will definitely come back here.

A perfect place to stay! Have just spent the last 5 days working with Comenius Project partners from Germany, Belgium and Latvia and this hotel was the ideal place to both work in peace and to relax afterwards. I shared one of the apartments with my Belgian friend and we were delighted. Two huge bedrooms, a useful kitchen and shared bathroom tastefully decorated. Breakfasts were perfect. Fresh pancakes one day, as well as a variety of breads, cheeses and meats. The owners provided a light lunch, on request, of amazing gazpacho and fresh bread, served in the sunshine on the patio. We requested 2 evening meals which were both beautifully cooked and well presented. I'd love to return with my husband for a relaxing break.

Hotel is very well located in the heart of most beautiful part of Latvia. We had a nice weekend at Cesis district and very nice stay at Karlamuiza. The owners were nice and helpful, the room - so nice, we didn't feel like being in countryside. But the minute we stepped outside we found ourselves in the middle of peaceful nature.

Room Tip: "Maria" - very good room for a couple.
