Nothing really spectacular... is a quite hotel close to the sea..(5 min by walking down the hill). Restaurant is quite nice bus with a very short/classic menu. The gym is there but not really the latest equipments.

Nice, fresh with excellent breakfast. I arrived in the evening and was greeted with a free newspaper and a room with huge windows. The breakfast was excellent and checkout was quick and efficient. I will stay here again if possible.

This is NOT a five star hotel except the location which is a five star and its history. It was built on an initiative by Lorentina Wilhelmina Skogh, born Wahlgren (14 December 1849 in the parish of Rute on Gotland, Sweden – 18 June 1926) was a hotel manager and owned a number of hotels and restaurants in Sweden.

Stayed here with three persons in a superior extra room for three nights. The room was surprisingly large if compared to the price. Efficiently furnished, very hygienic: no carpeting. Also the soap, shampoo and body lotion were presented in a nice way: Nice dispensers in stead of small irritating packages. A disadvantage: No good provision for make-up such as a... More

We are a family of 5 that traveled. The hotel Staff was very friendly and helpful with booking and were to dine. Taxi and sightseeing transfer. Rooms were large. Even an extra heater was put into the room. All very clean. Breakfast was good! We can really recommend this Hotel!

This is a classy old property right next door to Millesgården. Basically the proximity to Millesgården is the main reason to stay here. Nothing special in the new building/ extension. Breakfast was typical. All in all, we had a pretty good stay

I had some points to redeem and thought it might be nice to take advantage of them before they expired. I choose Foresta in part because of the location, thinking of the nearness to water (and to Millesgården - however that's another review!) and nice walks but also because the building itself is steeped in history. for instance the Beatles...

I stayed here in August 2014 on business and I would say that my overall impression of the hotel was really good. From the outset I will say this hotel is not central, but to be honest that isn't really an issue as the transport to get into the city is really easy and quick, I would say no more... More
