Good hotel for business meeting. Outside of the city and the hotel is able to offer full service. Location is close to harbour but that dosent crate any problems. Hotel rooms are relativity small missing modern air condition. I could imagine that during the summer time the rooms are quite hot. Restaurant offers good lunch and dinner and facility offers...

This hotel is quite a way out from the centre of town in the harbour area. The first impressions of the hotel reception and surrounding area is very good but unfortunately the overall experience was a little negative due to the very small size of the room given to us, just room for a double bed and very small writing...

I am glad to hear that you had a good stay , if you choose to come back to us I can recommend you to try one of our more spacious doublerooms or mini suites. I can also recommend a visit to our nice Art Garden Spa at your next visit, well worth a try! Best regards, Maria Botéus More

The hotels atmosphere is great and everything is so beautiful and harmony is everywhere. We enjoyed our stay very much. It was nice to notice that there was lot of other couples also. The room was bit small but clean and well equipped. Didn't here any sounds, nights were peaceful, no children. The hotel is somewhere in industrial area, far... More

Stayed in room 511. The room is nicely appointed, clean and has what you need. The bed is comfortable with plenty of pillows. DVD Player, flatscreen TV and an in-room safe are also found. It is rather small in size (small cruise ship cabin), though. Two points will lead me not to book here (at least in this wing of... More

We were there from Friday to saturday. Arrived at 3 oclock. At arrival we were offered cheese and bread and coffee. Great welcome. We went there primarily because of the spa and we were not dissatisfied. We had a great time and enjoyed the whole spa. Had a beer in the cosy lounge afterwards and then dinner. Dinner was of...

Stayed at this hotel many times for business purposes. As it is very close to our company office in Gothenburg. It is located at the industrial port of Gothenburg (Skandia Hamnen), so not really a very nice area and quite far away from the city. But the hotel has a fantastic spa with a nice view to the port.

This may be a way out of the city centre, but don't be put off. The restaurant, bars, lounges are great spaces, and the outdoor section of the hotel is somewhat unique in style. Good parking if needed. Excellent sauna facilities. Rooms are perhaps a little small unless you go for an upgrade. Only downside was BBC World did not... More

Nice room, but signs of subpar maintenance & cleaning: busted closet door, vermin (!) specimen on floor. Small bathroom.
