The only reason for this hotel being in existance is its approximity to Kolmården zoo. Whereas the Zoo delivers on all points, this hotel is a dissapointment. We had a 5 hrs drive to Kolmården from where we live and arrived at the hotel around midday. Now tierd and weary from the drive and kids in the car (an infant... More

We stayed here one night, had one room for me and my wife and one for my son, his wife and 3.5 year old son. You can see that the hotel is not very new, but basic maintenance is done and the rooms were nice and clean. Our rooms were on 5th floor facing nice view to the sea bay.... More

This hotel is amazing! We arrived, checked in and the staff asked our two-year-old if she wanted a T-shirt. The dinner was superb, one kids buffé and we had a la carte. So nice. All staff is trained to deal with children, and there are stuff to do at all times.

I stayed for 2 nights in room no 421. No heating, it was cold in the room. People at the reception couldn't help to find out how to get to Arlanda airport. Breakfast - nothing special. Eventually I payed 3500 SEK for 2 nights (1 lunch and 1 dinner included though)

This hotel lies next door to the Kolmarden Zoo, and is themed in a zoo / wildlife style with regards to rooms but also restaurant and other areas. Nice meeting rooms available with all the necessary facilities. Great relax / pool area / spa. Hotel needs a little work and would benefit from sections where school kids are not allowed... More

Lots of kids living here - both travelling with family and on school trips. Some running in the hallways and lots of noise, especially around the pool. Hotel is a bit rundown, but has a good location for the Zoo, so it's a good place to rest up if you can sleep with some disturbances. If not, I'd opt for... More

The hotel is fine for the kids, they could play in the playrooms and look on movies in the videoroom. The room was dark, and the price was high compared to other hotels with similar price. The windows in the hotel was very high up on the wall. The food tasted ok, but the expectations was a little bit higher... More

It is hard to decide whether I should rate the experience 3 or 4, so better explain why: - The spa/swimming pool area was better than expected. Even though we visited the hotel in mid July when lots of other families visited the hotel and everyone seemed to come to the Spa at the same time in the afternoon -... More

Stayed for one night with children while visiting the Zoo. Walking distance to the Zoo is definitely a plus. The hotel is nice but the room we got was very small for three people, the extra bed would almost not fit. They have a great spa/pool area for both adults and children that we enjoyed for several hours. Did not... More
