The place was musty, shabby and over rated. The food wasn't worth the price, the staff was ok but not incredible. No pillows in the room, 90's style TV, doesn't have free web as advertised, and on top of that they charge you an extra 20o krona for twin beds pushed together.

Negative: Gave a slightly run-down impression. If it wants to be a hotel for couples or friends on a relaxing weekend they fail a little. Rooms and furniture are old and worn. Even in First Lady room. A lot of simple details missing such as napkins in the room, a proper bin in the bathroom, etc. The pool and relax... More

Would like to start morning without such kichen's personal like we met in Shovde's First Hottel Billinghus... Next time we gonna try all Spa, gym and pool things. This time it was closed. Actually I think it would be good if wellness center would work till 22.30 on weekends...

Friendly staff, breakfast ok altough basic, very nice gym and spa section. Nice view from resaturant. Got a room with a tub upon request, and no problem at all to check out an hour later. Room clean, but standard from the 80s, or to be honest, resembling a Finland ferry.

A family hotel with a swimming pool we booked for our children. When asking about the pool they told us that the children had to be 15 years old before allowing them into the pool. We never expected this and wanted to cancel the reservation, but because booked on the internet it was not allowed. Instead we got a ticket... More

This is my first stay at this hotel and even my last. The rooms smells and are oldfashioned. The staff are friendly but have no right to serve the customer. No Environment thinking in this hotel. I strictly don´t recomend it.

Expensive hotel that is very worn down, bad breakfast even if it had a spectacular view. No air circulation at all and you need the window to be wide open so the room temperature should come down from the initial 28 degrees C. We can't recommend it at all.
