The hotel complex is full of various activities, the spa is small and cute, the food in the restaurant is delicious and the service is at the level. The only downside is the accommodation. We took the romance package for our visit and were accommodated in the Viinaköök, which is very old and run down. It felt more like a hostel, not 4-star hotel. The romance package room had a small shower cubicle, I would have rather expected a bath. On top of that, the walls echoed through and the sound also traveled through the ventilation. It was very unpleasant to wake up at 3 o'clock in the morning to the noise from other rooms, the sound through the vent was so good you could hear exactly what was being said. There was one pillow per person and it was large pillow, no other options. All in all, all other services were good except the accommodation, the rooms needs renovation ASAP.

Great countryside resort. The accommodations are in 9 different buildings, so best is to book via phone or email - it allows to discuss and find the best rooms for your needs: eg you prefer close to restaurant, close to spa or close to the nature. Rooms are nice, but not so luxurious as in some really fancy manor hotels. Main restaurant is nice, good meals and choice of wines for all tastes. Breakfast is good, SPA is cozy and treatments good, gym is bare minimum. Nature is amazing, just for a small hike or for larger tours. There are many small museums - vodka museum, car museum etc. Museums are not big but just a clever use of many buildings in the complex. The service is friendly, but sometimes a bit clumsy due to inexperience of the junior stuff. But they desire to offer good service. Nice and cozy experience.

Great location for sure, quite many things to do on the spot but not much in close proximity really. We were in zen deluxe room which was very nice, but quite cold and walls/door didn't hold much noise. Restaurant was biggest disappointment as the food was mediocre but prices were same or higher as in Tallinn. Breakfast buffet was pretty good though.

Went for 2 days and were lucky enough to get fresh snowfall. The location of the manor is beautiful. They have renovated all buildings that are on the grounds. Beautifully done. The snowfall and the white landscape made it even more magical. Spa was clean and comfortable. The reception and service over all was very polite and friendly. I'm hooked! Would love to see it in the spring summer and maybe autumn.

Big, comfortable rooms showing off the history of the place with beautiful and modern bathrooms that tastefully fit together with "old" style of the manor. Tasty and diverse selection of food. Gorgeous area to enjoy nature and outdoor activities. Wonderful spa and interesting museums. Staff is friendly and professional.

Kakesbeck Castle

Kakesbeck is one of the largest medieval fortifications in Münsterland and the oldest castle in Lüdinghausen. The imposingly grown complex originated in 1120 as a motte, a small hilltop tower castle. After numerous changes of ownership, the castle was extended onto two islands, but it was not until the 14th century that it underwent significant alterations and extensions under the von Oer family. The estate experienced its heyday in the middle of the 18th century, when it covered an area of almost one square kilometre and consisted of five further outer castles in addition to the core castle, which were secured by ramparts and moats.

The well-maintained condition of the castle today is thanks to the late Wilfried Grewing, the former lord of the castle. The foundation named after him has been particularly committed to preserving the property since 2020.
