Grinda Wardshus is located on one of the many islands surrounding Stockholm. You can get there either by ferry (approx.. 2 hrs from Stockholm) or with your own boat. The island is rather tiny and remote. There are no bridges or roads that would connect it to anything else. You may not book a seat on the ferries in advance,... More

We just stayed here for one night and were pleasantly surprised with the friendliness of staff which is a bit rare in other places in the archipelago. Grind is a wonderful place to give a controlled experience of the archipelago to any international visitor. So we did this together with my in-laws and they were impressed. The Wardshus is basic...

Very nice place both inside beside the fire and outside over the roof. food is quite good but price is a bit high for lunch. Good choice are herring and shrimps but the fish soup is not so good as expected.

Trip advisor reviews I read are fairly accurate. Pretty basic room, but more than good enough for an island where you are meant to be almost camping and aware of your surrounds. Saw the milky way for the first time in the northern hemisphere in the evening. Amazing! Grinda has a few hidden sandy beaches you can have all to... More

I recently visited Grinda Wärdshus with my family and the environment was great but the hotel place was over all a 6/10.The location is not the best and since people have to travel quite a bit, one would expect the visit would be exceptionally good. The service was very poor, first off the waitress didn't put any effort into smiling... More

The Grinda Inn bills itself a 3 star hotel. It does comes with a lovely boat trip, a beautiful island and a great restaurant, but if you look just at the hotel rooms it is indeed a 3 star hotel - max. The reception and the restaurant are in a very nice 1906 art deco villa. It's a kind of... More

The Grinda Wardshus (Inn) is the sort of place that I wish had other owners. The Inn is situated on the small island of Grinda (accessible by ferry from down town Stockholm) in the Stockholm archipelago in a large summer villa dating back to the beginning of the 20th century, with a restaurant overlooking the bay and the small harbor....

We stayed in one of the wooden chalets. There are two single beds and a mini extra room with a bunk bed. The equipment is very basic, 4 glasses, 4 plates, fridge, oven/microwave... The chalets don't have water. If you want to wash up your dishes, you have to carry water from the showers. Depends where the chalet is located... More

I was fortunate to be in Stockholm fopr Sweden's mid-summer holiday and celebrated it with a friend on Grinda Island (an hour from central Stockholm by fairly frequent ferries). Many day-trippers were also on the island, making for a festive mood, with dancing around the maypole etc. All sorts of accommodation (hotel, basic cabins, camp-sites etc.) is available on the...
