Gracious, elegant hotel in a gorgeous old building in an even more gorgeous street in an outstandingly beautiful part of the world. Comfortable room with excellent bed, lovely and quiet. Wonderful food - we have tried both dinner and breakfast and they were quite different: dinner elegant and refined, breakfast enormous, hearty, and will set up up for a week. The biggest selection of delicious Baltic cold meats, smoked fish and pickles I've ever seen, and that's BEFORE they brought the hot breakfast! And finally, outstandingly helpful and friendly staff. The service in the outside terrace at dinner last night was some of the best I've ever experienced - so unobtrusive and yet he was right there the second one needed anything. Outstanding in every respect.

We headed to a burger and ribs place in the sun on the square and dined on burgers and ribs and watched the passing parade of tourists. Lovely, we needed a rest. As the old town hall was adjacent and there was a tower to climb John headed off, why he would climb a 500 year old tower with his sunglasses on nobody knows, certainly he didn't. Climbing the tower in semi darkness without your ...
... forward to them coming to New Zealand to return the favour. Prue is sick and has disappeared to bed, poor thing. We settle in and Katie Tom John and I head out for an initial explore. We are right on top of the hill of Toompea, the highest point in the old town in a large and lovely apartment - you could hold a party in here and get lost! The big green wooden doors that lead to the outside of the building are typical or the area and the age of the place. We turn right up ...
... The townhall square is overrun with many touristy restaurants with prices marked up. I chose not to eat there. If you need an ATM though, there is one in the square. You can also visit the oldest pharmacy dating to approximately the 13th or 14th centuries and you can still go inside.
Next I paid a visit to the Holy Spirit church located just a bit off the townhall square. This church is also quite old dating to around ...
... holiday celebrations etc. So a chicken kebab at an outside picnic table sufficed.
Because there is not much to report on for today I have taken the opportunity to report on our ‘toilet’ in our B&B room. (see photos)
It was one of those fancy Japanese ones with all sorts of functions but with all instructions in Japanese. Well ya just gotta try these things don’t ya!
First thing ...
