"La bohème" at Olavinlinna Castle

Glorious Finnish lake district

DC & HM - London

Dear Andrew
 We had an excellent trip - the arrangements worked perfectly. The hotel was all that you would expect of the top hotel in Helsinki. As you warned us before we left the hotels in Savonlinna are not of the same standard but whilst the Best Western could do with some 'TLC' its location was good. The restaurant was perfectly fine although there were other places just near the castle which we used. It has to be said we looked at the other hotels in the town and none stood out as being any better.
The Opera setting and arrangements were very good - excellent seats and a wonderful performance.
All in all a great success!!
Best wishes
D & H
