Pädaste Manor becomes first 5-star-hotel outside of Tallinn

24. August 2009

The Estonian Hotel and Restaurant Association’s (EHRA) official starhotels commission has performed a review of Pädaste Manor. The commission awarded Pädaste Manor with five stars. Pädaste Manor is now the first five-star-hotel hotel in Estonia outside of Tallinn.

Martin Breuer, General Manager of Pädaste Manor today said that the five-star certification is a great recognition for the efforts of Pädaste’s team to provide outstanding hospitality services. According to Breuer: “The status of a starhotel is a guarantee for the level of service and quality in the Hotel. It’s important that a selected hotel meets, or even better exceeds a travellers expectation. We provide quality services with a high emotional value and we are very pleased by EHRA’s decision to give us the five-star certification,” added Breuer.

Chairman of the Board of EHRA’s commission Anne Samlik said that the commission has found Pädaste Manor to meet the requirements of a five-star luxury hotel. “Pädaste has shown an ability to provide high-quality services consistently throughout its 13 years of existence,” she added.

Nordic and Baltic countries have a unified star system ranging from one to five stars, meaning that minimum requirements for all star hotels of a certain level are the same. Unified standards include demands on the buildings of hotels, services provided and level of comfort, depending on the star level. In Estonia, EHRA’s starhotel commission made up of seven members manages the star system. The star certification is valid for three years.

Overall there are 32 star hotels in Estonia, only four of which have been deemed worthy of five stars.
