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

To begin with, if you have any problems with hoards of kids roaming around, this hotel is to be avoided. Secondly, don't have any expectations what so ever regarding fine dining or nice wine lists. Third, Their checkin check out times are ridiculous with checkin a 3 and checkout at 10. We were two families checking in with one kid... More

The closeness to and combined offer with Kolmården is the only reason to stay at this hotel. This is a high profile, very expensive hotel. It does not deliver to expectation. It was pleasant and plenty of fun for the kids with the spa and play room, film etc. but: - The dinner buffé was not delivering to value -... More

We stayed at Vildmarkshotellet in early November. It was a really nice stay and the kids said it was fantastic! Regarding the zoo: Even if all animals isn´t outdoor, it´s really nice. The rooms are quite small (with a family of four). The possibility of charging your regular tools (Ipads, Iphones etc) is challenging in such a room due to... More
