“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2010

What a relief ! Situated on a car-free island, the lovely little swedish village Marstrand is the picture-perfect prototype of a swedish village. Our room with balcony and view towards the harbour was very pretty decorated and had all the amenities you need. The service in the restaurant was excellent and the breakfast typically swedish. It was very hard to leave this lovely place, we will definitely come back !

Grand Hotell Marstrand is an old building from the hey days of the yachting town Marstrand on the Swedish West Coast. The hotel is in the middle of the small town and it is east to come there (there are no cars on the island). The ambiance is turn of the century, no not the last one, even if the rooms are have all the modern things you need. Some of the rooms are quiet small, but who cares for a romantic stay? Staaf is friendly, breakfast is good. This is a small place to return to.

  • Liked — Very romantic place
  • Disliked — Small room

Attended the Grand Hotel in Marstrand for a business conference. The journey there is long but VERY scenic.

Arriving on Marstrand the hotel is easy to find, set in a park amongst very steep hilly streets. There is a faded grandeur to the hotel which gives it GREAT charm.

My room was small but beautifully decorated in rural Swedish decor, with a VERY comfortable bed. The stairwell, and indeed the whole building creaks and complains like its alive and crotchety !

The restaurant was lovely and cozy, and the seafood amongst the very best I have ever tasted - garlic crayfish to start with crusty bread, and monkfish tails for entree. Lovely. Great wine list and a real party atmosphere in the bar afterwards too.

Downsides...well if you don't buy into the character of the hotel, the facilities are hardly on a par with intercontinentals and Hiltons.

Also theres actually not much to do on Marstrand. A couple bars, a couple shops , a castle, thats it.

I liked this business trip enough that I'm considering it as a venue for our upcoming wedding anniversary !

  • Liked — Food, Character
  • Disliked — Not much to do - felt a bit stranded
  • Tips/Secrets — Take change for parking on mainland - there are no cars allowed on Marstrand !
