Hotel itself is quite nice, decent pools and free wifi. Breakfast is good, which helps if you spent previous day walking around and in the pools.

It's some distance away from the centre of the town, but still easily walkable.

What was the weird policy - no swimming suits in saunas. Not "optional", not "whatever you feel like" - there are signs in 4 or more languages prohibiting them.
Together with a "I slept with George" CD in the room one might be forgiven thinking that it was designed by/for old gay men :)

So despite all the rather nice things this silly policy makes it "unfortunately, won't visit again".

Goerg Ots Spa (GOSpa) is my and my daughter's favourite spa hotel in Estonia. I have been there 4 times already - each stay ca 2-3 nights, location is just fantastic - ask for seaview room and You can enjoy unforgettable views, even in autumn rain. Nice spa and absolutely the best trainer-masseur Toomas! Just once the food in dining restaurant was disappointing, mostly everything has been just perfect!

Room Tip: ask for seaview rooms, all these are with balcony as well

We spent a wonderful week - end in Sarema island and stayed in Georg Ots SPA hotel. Wonderful location and views from room and restaurant, excellent breakfast and SPA facilities. The hotel is not a very small one but it does not feel like there are so many rooms. I would say that it is rather cosy.
And especially I would like to mark high level SPA treatments. We had made reservations in advance, but my treatment had run out of necessary ingredients and I was offered other one - even longer and more expensive but I did not have to pay anything. Fantastic feelings during the procedures and after. The necessary effect was reached.

Room Tip: Make SPA treatment reservations in advance, do not hesitate to go there in autumn. It is a wonderful...

We stayed here for a couple of nights after visiting Tallinn. The receptionists spoke perfect English and were really helpful in explaining where everything was. Our room was spotless with a balcony overlooking the beautiful lake and castle. The spa treatments were fantastic and well priced, the restaurant was large and the food good quality. There's variety of pools to splash around in and a sauna too. A perfect way to wind down in a really relaxing atmosphere. Would definitely return.

By far the best hotel (and spa) in Kuressaare, for a price which is lower than anyone might expect.

Staff was always friendly and helpful, speaking fluent English. All inner and outer spaces were comfortable, relaxing, well-organized and clean. Room was clean, warm and well-equipped, with a lovely heated floor in the bathroom.

Service and facilities were flawless and rich in both the massage and spa sections.

Really impossible to spot something negative to say about GO Spa. Perhaps the morning breakfast could have included a wider variety of food. And the hotel's location, even though in a wonderful spot, it is not as central as the rest of the local hotels. But hey, it is Kuressaare we're talking about... within 5-10 minutes of walk from GO Spa, you are already in the town centre.

Overall, a great stay in Kuressaare, definitely recommended and definitely my choice for my next time in town.

We spent wonderful time in this peaceful, family friendly place, having plenty time for swimming, exploring quiet surroundings and enjoying nice meals at hotel's restaurant. A bit more variety on children's menu and more spacious closet in family room would be highly appreciated, though. Nevertheless, we would be glad to come back at some point.

We stayed in the residences part of the hotel and were very impressed with the quality of the accommodation. The residence had a big terrace overlooking the sea. It was spacious, modern, clean and very functional. There was a lot of cupboard space and everything was in perfect order. The residence guests can use the spa and the spa is also very nice. The treatments are very good, the pool and the saunas are always clean.
We also tried the restaurant, it was quite good, they are very friendly to kids and have a good menu for fussy eaters like ours, kids can compose their own plate, choosing the meatballs/chicken/fish and then the side orders to go with it. Excellent idea and I do not understand why more places do not allow kids to do it. The kids also immediately got a coloring sheet and pencils. The milkshakes are also a good treat for the kids.
The hotel has wifi but not the residence. This was one negative point for me since I needed to get some work done. The hotel lobby is very cool but with plenty of kids running around not the best place to work.
