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

The hotel is a bit old style and not so interesting when it comes to design etc but very comfortable and the winning point is the location.For familys the parc and the walkways -swimingpools as well as skiing in the winter makes it a good hotel when travel with kids. Clean rooms, friendly reception although a bit new and OJT... 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.

Considering you are in Sweden, this resort is OK for the price. I got a 2 bed (twins) room, which was equipped with an 80's era, 15" or so TV hung from the ceiling, a small study, a trouser press (right at the entrance). The bathroom was ok. Had a soap & shampoo, towels and a shower stall. Nothing more.... More

Hi, I stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights recently. The hotel is quite nice, very clean with a nice breakfast. The more basic rooms are very simple - a little surprising, but very comfortable and practical - just not luxurious. But the view from the restaurant is great - it looks down a gentle ski slope, and... More

The hotel is at the top of the hill overlooking the town. I have stayed several times. It has a lovely view of the town from the restaurant which is a great way to start the day. The downside is the restaurant is not as good as others in the town or other hotels. However they do very good summer... More

This is an old hotel in serious need of restauration. My room did not have a functioning hair dryer or trousers press. Also the bathroom walls had visible black mold. This place is way overpriced and everything including the food and the service is stuck in the 80's.

Hotel room clean but too hot ( not possible to set the temperature in the room) and far from reception. Good breastfast however not so many sweets. Bit far from the city - car needed. No opinion on the spa- not been there.
