Everything was nice and comfortable. We enjoyed hotels restaurant with its delicious dishes. SPA area with warm swimming pool and sauna was perfect after long drive. Staff was very polite. Beautiful surrounding.
Saka Mainor is a small, but very nice place. We stayed there on night. Spa is small-sauna,pool. Location and nature is super. Rooms are clean. Employees are friendly and polite. Dinner and brekfast were very good.
We did a tour of the large manors in eastern Estonia - formerly occupied by German noblemen until the first Estonian independence in 1918. Saka is wonderfully restored but our room was small and shockingly warm (there is no aircon). It had a tiny window portal and a skylight. It had only one working English language TV channel (France 24). The restaurant served great food though but was a bit soulless and empty while we were there. There are great walks and a Spa on the grounds as well as a great walkway down to the Baltic beach, which is too rocky and too cold for swimming i fear. The pool was also unavailable to us that evening.
Location: The hotel is located about 160 km from Tallinn. There are no real towns in the neighborhood and the nearest town-like Kohtla-Järve has practically nothing to offer. The hotel itself is located in a limestone cliff next to the Bay of Finland. Practically the only way to go to the hotel is a private car.
The rooms: The basic room is really tiny with primitive furniture. The double bed is narrow for even thin people. There is no fans or air condition- neither fridge. The rooms look already worn.
The public areas: All the public areas are really tiny- practically extensions of corridors.
Food: The hotel has small breakfast restaurant offering just quite basic breakfast. The hotel has also a la carte restaurant with excellent food quality. The restaurant is the star of the hotel.
SPA: The hotel has also a small SPA with Finnish and steam sauna and a tiny jacuzi section in a tiny pool.
Personnel: The personnel of the hotel and restaurant is polite, nice and helpful.
