6/10 Good

Nice location, walking distance from city center. No minibar was a surprise (negative). Tried 30mins to get screen sharing work with the TV without success, really bad. We spent previuous night in Tammer and their TV had chromecast which was very intuitive and took 1 minute to get it into use. Restaurant service was not good. We gave some feedback about overcooked salmon salad which had far too much mayo but told also that duck confit was nice. Waitress comment was that good that you got at least something to eat then.

Not value for money...
Hotel is nicely located on the lake front and conveniently located at a walking distance from Rail Station and about 1 km from Town Market Square. Rooms are clean and we had good sleep but otherwise average with respect to the amenities provided for the price we paid. There was not even a tea/coffee arrangement in the room and hotel didn't even offer to provide when asked for. Room WiFi is slow and TV on WiFi goes into freeze and buffering frequently. Breakfast is good but you will get reminders to hurry up as it approaches 10 am. There was no dinner/bar available as both the restaurants were closed even on a Saturday weekend evening forcing us to go outside walking in the rain for dinner in the Market Square and back in rain.

Beautiful landscape, some things could be improved
The hotel location is very beautiful and staff was kind. However, the bed could be more comfortable. I would also like to have a small fridge and water boiler in the room. And restaurant is closed at lunch time during week and sundays night, for someone working late and weekends, it is not very practical that restaurant is closed and there are not a lot of options close to hotel.
