Torbjorn ("Thunder Bear") Colfach and his lovely wife run this rural treasure that's been entertaining guests for more than 600 years. Upon arrival with our 6' tall 200 pound grandson Dame Colfach immediately moved him from a cot in our room to a nice adjoining room -- no extra charge. Great food, a nice wine list and hearty, personal welcome... More

This is a very quaint setting and would classify this place as a large B&B. We were part of a tour group and were personally greeted by the owner. They had a special performance by a Swedish dance group. The grounds are very nice along the banks of a lake. The meal selection was small but delicious. Unfortunately the country... More

If you are looking for a 5 star cookie cutter resort, this is not it. This is a proudly historic enclave set in the middle of the bucolic Swedish countryside. It dates back to 1389 with the current owner claiming to be 26th owner. The rooms are nicely restored, somewhat small, and very clean. The beds are a little weary.... More

We were fortunate to spend a night here while on a Tauck tour of Scandinavia. Beautiful location; welcome by the owner; a Swedish folk dancing performance on the lawn for us...everhything was so very nice. Our rooms were in the annex and were small but nice. It was a warm night, but we were able to leave the window open... More

Stayed here for one night as part of the Volvo Overseas Purchase travel package. Loved this hotel. Well kept, clean and the location is great. The walk around the grounds and lake are superb. The ruin is easy to reach and the runestone is a must.

This was our 5th visit to Toftaholm Manor and it is indeed still a very nice place to visit. But this time we did sadly lack the personal touch that previously has been the trademark of especially this establishment. We can conclude though that the location and environment is still absolutely beautiful; the historic buildings are still charming and very... More

It is difficult to find decent hotels along the E4 main road in southern Sweden. Toftaholm is an exception to the rule. Pretty surroundings on historic grounds next to the river Lagan. The rooms in the annex are all newly renovated and nicely decorated. In the main building breakfast is served as well as lunch and dinner if you so... More

Excellent hotel in beautiful setting, great attention paid to all details. It was a perfect quiet setting after staying in several cities. Food was interesting and delicious. Would highly recommend this hotel. We love older hotels and this one with its history and charm fit the bill perfectly.

Stayed here 1 night. Everything was first class. The dinner in the beautiful historic setting was wonderful. The food was excellent. The rooms were historic rather than modern, although they did contain all modern facilities and were excellent, albeit a little small - however give the historic nature of the house, you get was is possible. Clearly the owners love... More

Welcome to Toftaholm Herrgård, a gastronomic stronghold dating back to the 14th century. Here, the guest and the food come first, a welcoming fire burns inside the door and our kitchen makes sure only the very best reaches the table! There are excellent opportunities for relaxation, romance and family celebrations at our manor. The wine cellar invites discoveries, the relaxation area offers a chance to unwind and the 45 charming and comfortable hotel rooms are all individually designed in a classic manor-house style.
