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...

I went to Grinda with my then 4 year old son in June 2012 and we had a great time. I think it had a lot to do with what we wanted so a two night stay wouldn't be for everyone. We stayed in the cottages near to where the boat pulls in as opposed to the main guesthouse. This... More

Upon arrival at the southern boat dock on the island, we walked down the dirt path following the signs to the hotel. As we turned left on the path we were greeted by gorgeous grazing sheep. It was a drizzling afternoon and the path was a bit muddy. Next time I will bring my waterproof hiking shoes/ boots. The entrance... More

We stayed over swedish midsummer and booked the last room which was a king size room. The reason they have a king size room probably dependeds on the fact that they forgot to put a toilet in one room and instead made an opening to the next room and made it a king size room. The extra room comprised of... More
