We stayed at Svensgaards last year for a weekend. I did not find anything elsewhere in the area to match price, location or staff friendliness and efficiency so we came back this year. We stayed longer for this trip, for four nights. Our room was spacious and bright and cleaned to the high standards we now come to expect here.... More

We recently stayed for 4 nights in Carmel. Check in was a breeze and the fellow that greeted us was friendly, efficient and very helpful. The location was great for walking to shopping and restaurants. The bed was very comfortable and the room was extremely clean. Continental breakfast is delivered in a cooler to your room every day and has... More

Svendsgaard´s Inn is a charming little motel in Carmel. We had a smiling hearty welcoming in the front desk and for me, thats about 60% of the important stuff in any hotel/motel/resort. We had two rooms for two nights, not the biggest and most dazzling I have ever seen but clean and well appointed and it suited our needs. Walking... More

Stayed here with 1 dog, 1 cat, 1 mother-in-law and 1 (and only) wife. We had two adjoining rooms. The best feature is the location - just 2-3 blocks and you're in the thick of it in Carmel. It was very pet friendly, and the staff was helpful and professional. The grounds were very nice and full of flowers and... More

We had a very nice room on the ground floor, sleeping area was well decorated and spacious, bathroom a bit on the small side but perfectly adequate. The breakfast pack left at the door in the morning was a pleasant surprise, loads of food including cereal, yoghurt, fruit, cake. We had a friendly welcome by the man at reception who... More

Quiet room and lovely pet friendly location. The staff was friendly, the room was clean! Definitely would stay here again! We walked to the beach and to all of our favorite spots. The breakfast delivered to our door was perfect....and of course included treats for the puppies.

We stayed one night in a small room with a tiny bathroom and shower you could hardly turn around in. The decor had not been updated. Our expectations (given that we paid almost $200. for this place) were not met. The manager got us a room in another property close by that is owned by the same group and he... More

We stayed here for 2 nights recently and were delighted with everything. From the spacious room, to the "picnic hamper" breakfast including fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, pastry and more, we were very pleasantly surprised. My husband loved to hang at the small bar opposite with a few drinks and wifi, with the locals watching the footy, while I scoured the... More
