Nuustaku Villa’s room is relatively large, the TV worked well; we got unit# 1 – as committed by the manager(s), an early check-in was arranged; appreciated. The room was facilitated with towels, soap, shampoo. The hotel manager was courteous and kind – the folks in Ootepa are helpful (language tends to be a problem, however they tend to do their best in assisting tourists).
1. We arrived during the quieter X’mas period, and the front-desk staff were not present. By way of making a mobile call, one could reach him; service thereafter was prompt.
Recommendation: have a phone installed at the lodge – not everyone will have an Estonian enabled mobile phone (though this is relatively inexpensive and works well).
As advertised, only cash is accepted (would be great if one could pay online via booking.com)
2. The Wifi worked well for the first hour, or two, and then the access went to “limited” (re-starting the passage way router made no difference).
3. The Sauna/facility downstairs was clearly well enjoyed by many folks in the villa; until around 2 am. So if noise / loud music is not an issue, then this not a problem (it did not bother us much). Anyway one assumes that folks in Ootepa are generally on recess.
4. The “big deal” ski-resort, Kuutsemäe, is 14 km away. One rents (where applicable) ski-gear and heads out to Kuutsemäe by using a taxi. Taxi drivers are reasonable, around Euro 13 each way. Kuutsemäe’s entrance varies by day or per hour - ranging between Euro 12 to around Euro 20.
