Stayed there one night last summer. The hotel seemed a little old and worn out. Hotel has an outdoor pool. Remember to order a room facing away from this if you want to sleep in. Great service and good value for the money. Hotel is located way outside Karlstad city.

We stopped here on our way to Oslo, and it was a great decission. Close to the highway but with no noise at all during the night. Given the prices in the country, it was quite cheap. Really good breakfast, big rooms, good WiFi, and a swimming pool to cool off. Highly recommended

This hotel has a very cozy atmosphere, very friendly staff, convenient location with a car and a great little pool for those hot days! We stayed here two nights with two small children, driving in from Norway. The hotel room was what you would expect. Not the most modern, but very clean and cozy. There is no air conditioning, and...

We were just stopping by for one night and thought the hotel provided good value. We had a car, which made getting to the hotel easy as it is slightly out of town, convenient for us as near the highway. We didn't really get a chance to test out the facilities, but the breakfast provided was very good.

While visiting my girlfriend in Norway, we decided to slip over to Karlstad as a little getaway. As usual, I researched all options and settled in on Best Western Gustaf Frodding. Bottom line, this place is hard to beat. From check-in to departure, I was pleasantly surprised. The basic "economy" room was cozy, meticulously clean, and as comfortable as can... More

The hotel is not the most luxurious or fancy hotel around. It is however extremely cozy and have a warm atmosphere. The rooms are well planned and come across as clean. Beds are very comfortable and the linen smells fresh and new. The breakfast is great with a midsized buffet containing buffet standards as well as Swedish specialties. To me,... More

Me and my son stayed here for the yearly chess event Karlstad Open, which was played at the hotel. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and service-minded, the room was adequate and the food OK. The breakfast was very good. The relax-area is small, but very nice. And the price was right. On the downside: The dinner buffet... More

I actually didn’t stayed at the hotel this time, but we had a superb Mediterranean buffet with wine at their restaurant Emilia. The staff was friendly. They have also a nice swimming pool, so you can take bath if you want. The hotel is situated 5 km from Karlstad, so you need an own car or taxi to get here.... More

Stayed here for one night (business trip) in June 2013. Not the most modern hotel, but the room was clean and functional. The motorway is quite close to the hotel and it generates some noise. Breakfast was not to impressive. All in all: Fair price for this accommodation.
