We didn't enjoy our stay at Clarion Collection Hotel Cardinal, because our attic room was tiny, shabbily furnished and hot like hell. There was no air conditioning, and the room didn't cool down at night.

We spent 2 nights at the excellent hotel. Very good service from the staff, we liked the room and the room was clean. The hotel location is very good, + hotel car parking in the garage. The breakfast and the buffet was extensive with most food available. Highly recommended.

The location is central & convenient. My superior room was spacious, warm & very comfortable. The staff were welcoming & friendly. Especially impressed by little, thoughful extras; tea & coffee, biscuits and snacks available in the afternoon. Highly recommended

They have multiple buildings so you might not be in the same building as the reception. The overall stay was alright, but they could have parking options and more ironing boards to use for guests. Good staff.

Other than the sidewalk work in front of the building at the moment- it was great. Front desk young ladies could not have been nicer and we asked alot of questions. The "lite" dinner was really a full dinner we are happy we had not eaten before our arrival. Since we arrived after 6pm we were able to park on... More

The central location, perfect for an evening stroll to the cathedral, smooth efficient service, pleasant rooms, and not the least Clarion Collection's policy of a tasty evening buffet included in the room rate make this hotel an easy winner in the tiny town of Växsjö.

It felt like a good hotel when booking it, and the hotel itself was not that bad, it was rather the service. More than 1 hour to check-in due to new or temporary staff that didn't know what to do. Even if we had some special needs, it was just a matter of chaning rooom and it should not take... More

We stayed three nights. All the time we were met with a big smile by the receptionists. The rooms in the mini-suite were spacious and we enjoyed to have a balcony as well. Breakfast was comprehensive as was the complimentary dinner buffet. It would have been helpful to, in advance, be informed how to get to the hotel by car,... More
