There's no doubt about it, this is a terrific hotel. The service is great and the hotel has an area of Spa and even an outdoor relaxing and bathing area with its own pier. Most of it included. Areas in the hotel are well organized and it's easy to find your own relaxing chair or a cosy lounge for chats....

Thank you so much for the review Dykker. And as you write - the rooms in the "conservatory" are being renovated and decorated in a new style. We are really happy you had a good stay though and hopefully we can welcome you back soon (so you can try one of the new rooms).

Excellent rooms , food and service . Situated just about 100 meters from the sea . Out there in the sea you will find a sauna with a saltwater pool. The surroundings are very nice , you will reach Denmark within just over ona hour.

Hotel is located at the nice place that so loved by many Swedes. Too windy at spring, in Summer it must be a remarkable place. Conference rooms are well equipped and designed in the way that big groups don`t disturb each other. Fitness center is one of the best I`ve seen so far in the hotels.

This my second time at this hotel but the first time that I stayed . I stayed in the building opposite the hotel . The bedroom was quiet small but it was very comfortable bed and had gorgeous fluffy feather pillows . The breakfast was fine . The meal I had here previously was gorgeous.

Fantastic breakfast buffet, spectacular views, lovely beach walk. I won a weekend for two at this hotel and they spoiled us quite a lot. We got a picnic basket, afternoon tea, 3 course dinner, spa access and an amazing breakfast with a waffles station. I got a corner room with two window walls which gave us nice sea views. Rooms...

Third visit to this hotel. This place is a must visit if you are traveling in the south of Sweden! The location is perfectly located by the sea. Calm atmosphere, great food and wine. Nice indoor pool. Great spa!

“If you want to be closer to spa center, go for main building. Otherwise it will be much less people passing your room in second building.”
