Ekesparre Residence Hotel is located in the resort town Kuressare on the island of Saaremaa which lays on the edge of the Gulf of Riga. Safety and a friendly atmosphere are keywords that best characterise this island.
From our hotel, it will take you only a few moments to get to the beach to be able to sunbathe or to go for a walk along the shore. Also the town centre of Kuressaare and the best restaurants are only a five minute walk away. But for enjoying the medieval episcopal castle you do not even have to leave our front yard.
That is to say that the Ekesparre Residence is situated on the north-east ravelin of Kuressaare castle, which once formed part of the castle ramparts. This is exactly where the main road lead to the castle; and the foundation of the forge which was built for the maintenance of cannons is placed immediately beneath our hotel. Guests with a vivid imagination can still hear the clanks of the blacksmith’s heavy hammer on the anvil, the shouting of rushing soldiers, or the giggles of coquettish noble ladies.
