Lovely location, albeit remote so you must be prepared to do some careful driving to get anywhere as the Gorge roads are very tricky.The castle is fascinating and grounds lovely, the staff were young, efficient and friendly, and the manager charming. The rooms in the annexe were spacious, comfortable but there was no wi-fi access, which meant going to the main building to do anything. It would also have been nice if the little fridge was stocked with something - soft drinks and water would have been fine, we didn't expect fine wines. The food was excellent, but the menu with four main courses was unchanged, so after five days we were repeating our eating ! Most guests stayed a night or two; if you stay longer you need to think about where you go and what to do during the day, although the pool and jacuzzi do help to while awayvthe time. We enjoyed it but felt five nights was enough.

Once again had an amazing stay. Very beautiful room and amazing location. Very friendly staff and great food. Only the first evening we had some issues with the dinner service. We had to wait long for the drinks and the food. I suppose it is not easy now to work with the new covid rules. Otherwise had a great stay.

Seaplane Harbour Museum

The Seaplane Harbour is the newest and one of the most exciting museums in Tallinn. It tells stories about the Estonian maritime and military history. The museum’s display, that comprises of more than a couple of hundred large exhibits, revitalizes the colourful history of Estonia.

British built submarine Lembit weighing 600 tones is the centrepiece of the new museum. Built in 1936 for the Estonian navy, Lembit served in the World War II under the Soviet flag. It remained in service for 75 years being the oldest submarine in the World still in use until it was hauled ashore in 2011. Despite its long history, Lembit is still in an excellent condition offering a glimpse of the 1930s art of technology.

Another exciting attraction is a full-scale replica of Short Type 184, a British pre-World War II seaplane, which was also used by the Estonian armed forces. Short Type 184 has earned its place in military history by being the first aircraft ever to attack an enemy’s ship with an air-launched torpedo. Since none of the original seaplanes have survived, the replica in Seaplane Harbour is the only full-size representation of the aircraft in the whole World.

Simulators mimicking a flight above Tallinn, around-the-world journey in the yellow submarine, navigating on the Tallinn bay make this museum heaven for kids or adventurous adults.

Seaplane Harbour operates in architecturally unique hangars built almost a century ago, in 1916 and 1917, as a part of Peter the Great sea fortress. These hangars are the World’s first reinforced concrete shell structures of such a great size. Charles Lindbergh, the man who performed the first solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean, landed here in 1930s.

On the outdoor area visitors can tour a collection of historic ships, including the Suur Tõll, Europe's largest steam-powered icebreaker.
