We had a gift card for a room of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) but the small ceiling room we got would not have accommodated this amount of people, hence it was a wise decision we did not take kids with us. The bathroom is around the same small size that you have on the boats when you cruise...

Hotel rooms and Spa were clean and tydy. Spa would have been even better if there had been water slide suitable for 4-7yrs Child and better water massage points. Little shopping mall near the Hotel was dissapointment

Overall a nice hotel in a beautiful area. Still, some things could be improved. The spa was nice, but our kids (4& 6) didn't have enough to do there as for example the slides were meant for kids over 8 years and the children's pool was smallish. The complex also should have reasonably prices lunch options. The lunch that is...

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.
