Peurunka is a spa hotel, with a lot of potential to attract guests even for a longer staying. There are a lot of different kind of rooms, in different buildings. We stayed in the main building, and at least our room was nice, recently furnished and comfortable to stay in. We stayed there for several nights, and were hoping for e.g. a kettle and a possibility to make at least tea or coffee in the room.

There are a lot of options to exercise and entertain yourself at Peurunka. There is an excellent golf course nearby, although you need to take a car or taxi to go there. The hotel is beautifully situated besides a lake, and you can enjoy the nature e.g. having a walk by one of many paths in the surrounding. There is a small bowling hall, a spa, gyms etc. Unfortunately everything is closed at 8 or latest 9 pm. There is absolutely nothing to do after that!

The food is terrible. The breakfast, lunch and dinner - even though you wouldn't expect anything fancy, you still would be disappointed! I do not know what they do to spoil even the best and simplest ingredients. Just a few examples: the eggs were so overcooked, that the yolk had gone almost white with a strange grainy structure. The salmon was also completely overcooked, and they had spoiled it with a repulsive sauce clearly made out of some semi-fabricated product. Everything was like a poor school meal or even worse.

I do not understand how this hotel affords to spoil their reputation with a poor food product. They clearly are in a turning point and try to survive in a changing business environment, but this way they make so much damage that it is almost impossible to fix. There is so much potential in Peurunka, but every day they continue with the poor serving they get so much closer to their final end.

Peurunka could be a nice attractive spa hotel able to survive in the competition and new challenges. But you need to fix these two things asap:
1. Food. It is not a question about the costs, but about the passion. If you appreciate your guests, you want to serve good fresh simple food, and you can do it with same or less costs than the disaster you serve every day now.
2. Entertainment. Your guests want to do something between 8 pm and bedtime, also on weekdays.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the lake.

There is a big water park with a current around. In the middle there is a child pool with a small slide, a pool with mini waterfalls and a inflated track, a jacuzzi, a freezing pool and a boiling pool. Outside the current circle there is another jacuzzi upstairs, a mini children pool and a big slide which comes outside for a moment. As for food there is a mini cafe in the pool area and outside the pool area. There is also a bowling alley.

If you like a spa that is dirty and everything broken then this is definitely the place to go. Our room was nice old house separate from the hotel and that smelled like cigarettes with only four familys staying the night.

I promise not to go to this hotel ever again so that others have more room available :)

By the way, view is actually really nice so take a tent with you, avoid the hotel and go hiking.

We visited Peurunka for the 3. Time (previously in 2013 and 2014) this year again from 28.4. To 1.5.. There has clearly been renovations in the hotel and the restaurants have been completely reorganised. We stayd in the hotel with our 2 cats. When you have a pet you get a room on the groundfloor and have your own little terrace instead of a balcony. The restaurants have improved 100%! We had one dinner in the a'la carte restaurant and one dinner in the buffet restaurant. Both dinners were delicious. During our previous stays food was OK but nothing special, but now one really got the money's worth. Please do not ever let this cook go away!
We had nice ,warm and sunny weather which is not always the case in Finland during this time of year. Just perfect. I can recommend this place if you want to relax and go for nice walks /run on the ready marked paths in the forest, sit by the lake and go to the gym or enjoy the spa. I love the 100 m long pool which is like an oval shaped river with no beginning and end... You just swim or do water walking and 2000 m (or 20 rounds) is done before you notice.
Last year we chose another spa ...what a mistake ! When we decide to go to a spa in Finland it will again be Peurunka for sure. In my opinion this is THE SPA in Finland.

Room Tip: The hotel is agood choice since you can go to the spa iåwearing just the bathrope and do not have to...

The resort has everything your hearth desire for any type of activities winter or summer; list of things to do too long. You name it they have it. Including bowling alleys. Very large pool with slides etc. Large buffet. A la carte restaurant and a snack bar with burgers, pizza, etc.

The resort caters as much for children's or handicap. Lots of seniors looks like the have a small hospital. Upon arrival very early, room was not ready, but they offered a handicap room complete with very comfortable hospital type adjustable beds. Bathroom specifically designed for wheelchairs.
Only small drawback no paper tissue, air conditioner or lotion.
