My husband and I had booked a 'superior room' at this hotel and we arrived at 14:30 at the hotel. Knowing that the check in time is 15:00, we asked the reception if room was available already. The man working at the reception said no and ask us to come back later. That was understandable since we arrived early. So... More

It is not that we do not like accomodation in old manors or castles that with a loving regard for small details are carefully brought to modern comfort standards without destroying the atmosphere of the place. In fact, a couple of months ago we actually made a round trip in Burgundy, France, where we stayed at such places on purpose... More

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
