Tatler Travel Guide 2005 rates Pädaste Manor among the 101 best hotels in the world

TatlerPädaste Manor, Muhu Island, Estonia

Split-level suites, a state of the art cinema and a spa in a beautifully restored manor house on a secret island….. Just when one thought one had run out of European countries along comes Estonia, a new EU member and an intriguing new place to explore. In Tallinn, all medieval architecture and slender spires, stay at the baronial Hotel Schlössle in the middle of the cobbled old town. Go to Pädaste for the weekend to escape the stag parties that menace Tallinn. Muhu, which was settled by nobles in 1227, is a staggering coastal location, and the manor has history and charm.
