We had expected much more from a four stars hotel and from the price that we paid. We had booked one night and got the "internet price", which we thought was quite high, but decided to stay since the hotel is situated very central in Skara. We stayed one more night, and paid a little less the second night because it was Saturday night. We had looked forward to a nice evening meal in the hotel´s restaurant the last night, and were very disappointed when we were told that the kitchen was closed. The staff claimed that they had informed all the guests about it since it was Good Friday, but we never got a phone call, e- mail or told when we talked with the staff in the morning. But they very kindly gave us a dinner dish that a private party at the hotel had ordered, and to a reasonable price. We were the only one in the dinning room!!
We got a quite nice room at the top floor, but discovered that one of the sockets was hanging loose. In our opinion it could have caused fire. We do expect that the owner has fixed that by now!
Even if this was Easter, had we expected in a four stars hotel that our room to be cleaned and the rubbish bin (it was very full) to be emptied the second day, but nothing was done; in spite of very few guests. The breakfast was a very positive experience and the staff was very attentive and filled up the different dishes quickly if short of something. We will be back in Skara another year to watch the cranes at lake Hornborga, but probably not stay in this hotel which we find was not worth the price we paid.
