Restaurant - please don’t go there. Visited the place August 9th afternoon. There were only 4 people before us, but it took over 50 minutes to bring our 2 dishes - made basicly directly from frozen half-ready ingredients. No apologises, only after we critized the extremely poor service time. Please manager, do something about it! Place and terrace by the lake deserve much more.

We rented a small apartment for three nights. It was equipped with a small kitchen and, of course, a bathroom with a sauna. We didn't use that in the summer heat, but we did rent a kayak and enjoyed paddling, swimming and the general scenery of the area. The apartment was quiet and generally well cleaned, although we did find an empty Red Bull can on the balcony. The free WiFi worked well, but it is an unprotected system so be careful! For gourmet food and wine, look elsewhere.

Worst Pizza ever! And extremly overpriced. The young staff are friendly but do not eat there or drink beer. 9€ for a draft beer!!! The pizza should be removed from the meny ASAP. It looks like they are using ready pizza kit of lowest quality. P.S Had real pizza in Milano 1 week ago. Go there and learn the craftmanship.

2-person cabin for one night, wouldn’t recommend. Maybe the other cabins were more neat, this one wasn’t and we had to change the cabin once due to cleaning issue. Shower/bathroom building was okay, better than expected. Beautiful scenery

Punkaharju Resort is located in a beautiful area with a huge lake and forrest around. There’s a restaurant (Pavilijonki) that serves good food (was surprised!). We rented a 2-person economy cabin with shared toilets and shower facilities for 3 nights. There’s an equipment rental place closeby (Harjun Portti) for bikes, kayaks, SUP boards, which was handy and friendly. The economy cabin in itself is quite cute and ok for 2 people for a short stay, with 2 separate beds, a fridge & a microwave. BUT the beds are incredibly uncomfortable, literally a wooden box with a thin mattress on it. Both our backs hurt immensly the day after and the sleep wasn’t very comfortable or calm. As we stayed 3 nights we added on own sleeping mats etc under the mattress and it improved slightly. Also the fridge is very loud, so prepare to have ear plugs in. Summarizing, I wouldn’t recommend these cabins if you want a good nights sleep or have back problems. We were literally counting the days to leave to a better place after the first night. Note: Can’t speak for the other cabins that look nice and big. The shared toilet and bathroom facilities are clean in general but very wet, moist and slippery, there’s only a few toilets (2) and showers (3) in one of the shared buildings. They’re all in the same one small room so there’s a lot of lines & waiting at certain hours. Also the design is not the best as you will literally stand naked beside the door that gets opened up all the time and people can look into the showers when it’s open. Normal in Finland maybe, but still, minus points for the lack of privacy (even if I’m a Finn).

Not an easy place to review. Topelius as an accommodation is as advertized. It's in good shape, has a kitchenette, wifi, tv, sauna, balcony. Lal's well there. As for the rest of the area, nor so sure. The nearby Punkaharju Pavilion -restaurant NOT recommended.

The cabins are cosy, but the beds are terrible. Its a wooden plank with a 'mattres' thats 2 centimeter thick. If you want a bad night and a sore back go for it. Breakfast is okayish, the place and location are nice.

Ei rauhaa rakastavalle - not for peace loving Ensimmäistä ( ja viimeistä) kertaa huone luhtitalo Topeliuksessa kahdeksi yöksi. Oikein siisti ja hienon näköinen huone omalla saunalla. Mutta se oli aikamoinen pettymys, että Luhtitalo Topeliuksen huoneiston patio avautuu muutaman metrin päässä olevalle minigolf-radalle. Tätä kun ei ole Luhtitalo Topeliuksen mainoskuvissa näytetty. Omalla patiolla ei kärsinyt istua ja nauttia illasta, koska ensin minigolfia pelaavien koira oli viereiseen puuhun kiinnitettynä ja haukkui siinä 1,5 tuntia. Sen jälkeen ravintolassa trubaduuri lauleskeli iltakymmeneen käyttäen äänenvahvistinta. Saimme myös naapuriin myös terassitupakoitsijan, jolta tupakansavu sitten muillekin terasseille levisi. Patioilla on muovirottinkiset puutarhatuolit. Tuoleista lähtee kova ärsyttävä ääni, kun ihmiset siirtävät tuoleja raahaten niitä pitkin pation laudoidusta ( voisihan tuolin myös nostaa vai mitä?). Tai terassikalustevalinta oli väärä. Topeliuksen huonehinnat ovat kuitenkin sen verran kalliita, että olisi luullut, että talon olisi voinut sijoittaa omalle rauhallisemmalle alueelle, eikä keskelle camping-aluetta ja muita mökkejä! First ( and the last) time for two nights in Topelius. Such a beautiful and clean room with own sauna and patio! But it was such a dissappointment that just opposite your own patio there is a minigolftrack. I did not see any picture about this at Punkaharju resort-web pages. First evening we could not enjoy staying at our patio, because there was a minigolfplayer’s dog barking for 1,5 hours while they were playing. After that a trubadur was singing loud at the nearby restaurant till 22 clock. The chairs on the patio make awfull noise when people in your neighbour drag the chairs instead of lifting them. We also had a smoker next to our patio. So other quests could freely enjoy the cigarette smoke! Topelius rooms are so expensive that it is strange that the Topelius house could not have placed to a more peaceful place than among everything other, like camping and cottages.

In a beautiful location but the camping place itself needs an update, the little cottages would be very nice with a little update and modernization, same goes for the toilet, shower and cooking facilities.

Our family came here for a drink during midsummer. The restaurant is big with a playroom for children. There is also a terrace in two storeys overlooking the lake. It is great Place looking at boats passing by, especially under sunshine.
