What an amazing and beautiful hotel! Sylvie was superb, so friendly and helpful. We were able to get on an earlier ferry and she said it was no problem to check in early. We arrived and was shown to our rooms. We had Trendy 2 and Trendy 5 (penthouse) booked. The rooms were so luxurious! You had everything you needed in rooms. Each room had a spacious living area with sofa, tv, bluetooth speaker and speedy WiFi. The kitchen had a full size fridge, oven and microwave. All plates and cutlery were provided. Even little things like ice trays and washing up liquid were provided. Bedroom had the most fantastic, large and comfy bed. Had the greatest night's sleep. Towels, bathrobes, slippers and luxury toiletries were all complimentary just like a 5 star hotel. Trendy 2 had a massive terrace area and Trendy 5 being the penthouse had a terrace over looking the beautiful town. Amazing views in the evening! It had the feeling of a luxury 5 star hotel but with the cosiness of being at home. With Sylvie's warm welcome it really does feel like a home away from home. Would highly recommend you stay here! Thank you again Sylvie.

This is an exceptional place! Begining of the year I moved to Belgium and, as a temporary location while looking for a fix appartment I stayed in Sleutelhuys almost 2 months. It was difficult because of covid times but Sylvie (owner) helped me a lot. She is extremely kind and takes care about all the details. Always tries to keep contact with you to provide help, advice or whatever you need and whenever! The room was quite big, the bed very comfortable, once of the most comfortables where I have slept! The kitchen had all you need and living room area was very nice. I had to work from there during the mandatory quarantine and they immediately provided an extra table and chair to install my office there. During these two months I felt like at home! I would recommend the stay there, for sure.

Historic Site of the week

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
