Spent the night here, very charming hotel with service-minded staff. Our room was clean, modern, and had comfortable beds. Free high-speed wifi was a plus, and the hotel restaurant was real treat. Both the hotel and town of Tanum is full of history snd worth exploring. I would love to stay here again!

We stayed two nights during our road trip through Sweden. Basically picked this hotel due to location - near the rock carvings and little fishing villages. Arrived and got no help taking our luggage up the front stairs. The initial room was the size of a closet, so they moved us to a "family" room which was larger and more... More

We stayed for one night last week and were disappointed by the standard of this hotel. Although clean, the room was small, dingy and in need of redecoration. The shower should have been updated several years ago. The television, which was in one corner of the room, was close to falling off the wall where the bracket had come loose.... More

We stayed one night here on our way up the west coast of Sweden. The hotel is inland, very near the UNESCO World Heritage Sight of 3000 year old rock carvings. Fascinating. We ate an excellent meal at the restaurant connected to the hotel. The breakfast at the hotel itself was adequate, not more. Coffee and cookies are offered in... More

We stayed at the Gestgifveri because it was the closest hotel to the Tanum stone carvings. In addition to the location, it had the feel of an older, one-of-a-kind hotel, which we really like. Established in 1663, it has been renovated many times since. The current hotel struck us as "pre-war rural inn". Nothing fancy but perfectly adequate. Clean rooms... More

Stayed here for one night with the Spring offer which includes accommodation and a three course dinner. The guesthouse is Swedens oldest, and every room are different. We were given room # 10 which is on ground level. The rooms was very little, but charming. Since there was something wrong with the lighting, we had to change room and were... More

I have for many years known Tanums Gestgifveri, but never really had the chance to stay overnight. Mostly because it's close to Oslo, my hometown and secondly because it's not far enough down E6 towards Europe! Staying this time was inded a good thing to do. I got a nice double room with good place and beautiful sight. The room... More

After spending a weekend at a wedding south from Oslo, we decided to hop over to Sweden and go shopping. We found this place on-line and booked it. I'm glad we did. Nice people at the reception. There was coffee and small cakes in the afternoon. In the morning there was a small buffet breakfast. We were there on a... More

We came to this hotel by pure chance after several hours of driving. It was late, windy and raining. We received a varm welcome by the reception. People are very friendly. There was live music in the bar. The price was a bit high, but this is a hotel with history and excellent service. The chandelier in the room was... More
