We spent 2 nights at the hotel, very good service from the staff, upgraded to a suite which was very comfortable and oddly located across the street from the main hotel. Plenty of room with excellent facilities, As we were visiting friends in the area we did not use the evening buffet or coffee and cakes during the afternoon. As...

Other than the sidewalk work in front of the building at the moment- it was great. Front desk young ladies could not have been nicer and we asked alot of questions. The "lite" dinner was really a full dinner we are happy we had not eaten before our arrival. Since we arrived after 6pm we were able to park on...

The central location, perfect for an evening stroll to the cathedral, smooth efficient service, pleasant rooms, and not the least Clarion Collection's policy of a tasty evening buffet included in the room rate make this hotel an easy winner in the tiny town of Växsjö.

It felt like a good hotel when booking it, and the hotel itself was not that bad, it was rather the service. More than 1 hour to check-in due to new or temporary staff that didn't know what to do. Even if we had some special needs, it was just a matter of chaning rooom and it should not take...

We stayed three nights. All the time we were met with a big smile by the receptionists. The rooms in the mini-suite were spacious and we enjoyed to have a balcony as well. Breakfast was comprehensive as was the complimentary dinner buffet. It would have been helpful to, in advance, be informed how to get to the hotel by car,...

I've stopped here twice and the overall experience is ok. Friendly staff and ok food, breakfast and tea. Rooms are a bit dated and not as modern as I've stopped in. However very comfortable beds and facilities. Good central location, parking available underground and around the corner. Excellent free WI-FI. Would recommend to anyone stopping on business as long as...

In general we try to avoid large chain hotels, so we were pleasantly surprised by the Hotel Cardinal. We arrived during a total downpour in August and had difficulty figuring out how to get to the hotel as it is on a pedestrian street. We finally paid to park in a nearby parking lot until we were checked in and...

“Get a room central to the hotel and away from the streets as the snow ploughs and gritters will wake you up as they start at 5am.”

“Be aware that the street between the hotel buildings is very noisy with shouting, partying young people at night, at least it was on the weekend. Ask for a room away from the street if possible.”
