Ten years after a business stay at Rusthallargarden I returned with my family. The location in the cosy village of Arild with splendid views of the bay has off course not changed. Still the best asset of the hotel.
However, the accommodation standard did not match the high rate. We stayed in one of the villas - were told that the most modern rooms were placed here - but the standard was not a four star. The room looked tired, not very interesting and maintenance was not good enough. Maybe details but adds to the general impression: A picture had fallen down from the wall. The toilet and the bathroom furniture was cheap plastic and the shower was not in a good condition. The extra (sofa-)bed for our child was not particularly clean and we should ourselves find the bed linen in the cupboard and make the bed.
The spa was not exciting. The tiny little pool was under repair (apparently during the entire winter period which you are not told when booking the room) so only jacuzzi and sauna could be used. Again - cleaning condition not good enough.
We did not have dinner at the restaurant but knew from earlier visits that the kitchen is excellent. That also refers to the breakfast: Very delicious presented, wide selection and top quality! The lounges next to the restaurant are very cosy and with a good atmosphere, ideal for evening relax. Friendly staff.
All in all: Views and breakfast in top, accommodation below expectations.
