We stayed in the cabins on Grinda on Friday and Saturday night, 28th and 29th August. The Friday was fine. On the Saturday evening we, two females, returned to our cabin, no.24, to find that 20 + men in a large party group had been booked in to cabins 22, 23 and 25, therefore completely surrounding us. We did call... More

For full disclosure, I worked here one summer about ten years ago. This is a nice daytrip. Get on the boat, come out here, walk around the island, maybe take a swim (there's a VERY small beach), and eat at the restaurant. Or stay overnight and enjoy two days on the island. It's a good idea to book ahead even... More

Grinda is a beautiful island in the Stockholm archipelago. There is only one way to get there - by ferry. From Stockholm about a 2 hour ride. Great trip. Accommodation on the island consists of cabins, a hostel and one hotel - Grinda Wardshus. By the way - take the least amount of liggage possible, it is almost 1 kilometre... More

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
