Pros: We liked the quiet environment and our huge bed. The hotel is located sufficiently well if you want to visit places like Kuldiga, Dundaga, Kolka, Ventspils or Jurmala (as there is not that much to see in Kandava itself). There are two supermarkets just a stone's throw from the hotel. The relatively cheap price was another bonus.
Cons: The bathroom (esp. the shower) was rather disappointing. The smells from the kitchen found their way into our room all too easily. The host did not speak English (but her Russian was fine). We had no choice when it comes to breakfast, and the actual breakfasts were reasonably good, but a little odd (kind of salads rather difficult to describe).
Cons: not good service, breakfast was very small
