Spent three days in Are, and found the hotel good. Conference rooms were ok. Best part is the location of the hotel, making it very easy to take advantage of restaurants and other activities in the area. Breakfast was good, but lunch buffets were slightly disappointing. Very good swimming pool and sauna area

My wife and I booked a stay in one of the studio apartments for a week. The room was very clean and there was a nice bathroom. The only problem was that the studio was tiny. The kitchen was opposite the bed. This was the smallest timeshare/RCI studio we have ever been in. Also, there was a mishmash of cutlery... More

As you can see on my previous reviews, I almost never give 5 stars. However, this hotel has everything you need. Restaurants, close proximity (very close) to the town and supermarket and railway station. It has two restaurants, bowling lanes, adventure bath, sauna world and fantastic conference venues (small as big!). The only downside is the distance to ski lifts.... More

After a 12 hour train ride we had booked into this hotel as it was attached to the train station. The view of Are from our room was great. Long wait to check in. Seems quite under staffed in the evenings. Only one person serving in the shop, on the phone, on reception - all simultaneously. Had to wait a... More

Stayed twice at this hotel this month. Very family friendly with plenty of options around for anyone. The hotel itself has a really beautiful pool area with slides and children's areas. There is also a gymnasium for kids to run wild and a really nice child center! Food on site is okay, but with a great location plenty of excellent... More

I stayed at this hotel with my family for a weekend in August 2014. My earlier experience from this hotel was very good but this time we were really disappointed. Old towels, water clogged into the bathtub and sink, dust around the electric switches and floor trims and the carpet. An overall old look and feel was that it was... More

Beautiful area of Sweden. Went Zip lining in Are and stayed at the Holiday Club. Nice rooms, nice amenities and very nice staff. I can see it being a nice ski resort, but don't ski and do like hikiing in the mountains.

We stayed at Holiday Club Are in May 2014 and absolutely loved it. Located in a beautiful quiet place called Are, Sweden the resort has everything you can want and more. There are mountains all around and the rooms. The rooms are very clean and the place is on the whole extremely well maintained. We had got one of the... More

Great indoor facilities: gym, adventure pool, spa/sauna, restaurant, shops. We, a family of 4, ordered an extra bed so we had a double, a sleeping sofa and the extra bed and got an extra size room to fit... More

Beautiful lakeside residence that slept 10 (there were only 2 of us). Nicely furnished, very clean, free firewood for the fireplace, great attached saunna, laundry, and a wonderful deck. It exceeded our expectations. We loved working out daily and the use of the water park. We found the front desk staff of the resort to be extremely friendly and informative.... More
