wonderful very quiet place with traditional Swedish seacoast design and items. Excellent restaurant especially fish and game – prepared with elegance, design, and good taste. Great staff - very helpful and knowledgeable about area. Great hiking and biking around the island

We stayed here for the traditional Swedish Christmas dinner which a few weekends before Christmas. The old fashioned room was very cozy and comfortable. It was perfect to not have a TV in the room! The Christmas dinner was perfect with all it’s traditional dishes and we enjoyed it very much. The breakfast was very nice and the staff very... More

Lovely hotel with the warmest of welcomes. Making the kids feel at home is half the battle and having that sorted the moment you walk in is awesome. Our room (grandma's) is delightful, the bathroom could be a little nicer but we're super happy! Staff smiling and so are we. Well done guys.

The hotel is located on one of the main islands outside of Gothenburg, to go there you have to take the ferry. It's a very pretty place and the building has a historical ambience.

Beautiful location and decorated in a traditional Swedish style. Our room was located at the back of the house so we didn't benefit from the sea views. No storage facilities for our clothes either. Food was needlessly complicated and lacked taste although presentation was first class as was the wine selection. Staff performed well until they refused to serve one... More

Didn't actually stay at this pension As we only had a day trip to the island from Gothenburg, but we were out exploring and looking for somewhere to have coffee and came upon this glorious place about 20 mins walk from port.

I akways stay here once a year. If you go you will see why. Charming and unique. Lovely rooms and good food. Going again this year. Don't miss their lobster weekends in autumn. So special for anyone. And a gastro experience not to be missed. You can follow on the fishing trip too.

Had a very pleasant one night stay here. Food was good, and the dining room is really lovely. Room was small, but perfectly suitable and as I would have expected for a traditional, old-style building (a little more water pressure would have been good though!) Very friendly staff and owners. Good location, just a short walk from the ferry quay.

We stopped for two nights at this traditional style hotel. It was easy to reach from the mainland and once there, the hotel had a bank of bicycles that you could pick up and use to cycle over the car free islands.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You can still discover genuine, unspoilt places. It takes just 15 minutes on the ferry from Saltholmen in Gothenburg to arrive at an island without cars. An island with boat huts, shoreline meadows and old-fashioned houses. Incredibly close to the metropolis, yet secluded enough to be completely different. Our guest house on Styrsö is open all year round and guests are always given a warm welcome. ... more   less
