We arrived from a tour of the Baltic countries for 3 days relaxation and were not disappointed. Kuressaare is a great place and the staff at this hotel went out of their way to be nice and friendly. It was clearly enjoyed by lots of families with small children too.
Indeed, I had the best steak I have ever eaten anywhere, in the hotel restaurant and the other meals were all of a similar standard.
But the architect/planners were clearly incompetent. There are a number of reports on Tripadvisor pointing out the ridiculous design of the showers in the bathrooms in which there are no curtains or ledges resulting in flooded floors. What has not been pointed out is that the hairdryer plug - at least in our bathroom - was in a direct line with the shower so that spray could easily enter the socket if left uncovered. With the number of children around, such an arrangement is literally asking for trouble.
Nor is that all. Another reviewer has pointed out that partitions between the balconies of adjoining rooms have gaps allowing small children to squeeze through: indeed we watched from below as one family arrived and the first thing one of their children did was to squeeze through and get several balconies from her room before the parents missed her and called her back in a panic.
Those points apart, we had nothing but praise for the hotel and its staff. Without the design problems we would have given it 4 or even 5 stars.
