After spending a few days in busy Stockholm, we headed out to Vaxholm for 3 nights. The Waxholm hotel is perfectly located at the Waxholmsbolaget ports (~£7.50 from Stockholm).
The first thing you notice is that there are a lot of stairs to get your suitcase up and in to your room, but when you get to the room it's very quaint. The hallways are decorated like the inside of a boat and the rooms give you the perfect seaside getaway feeling.
Breakfast is a buffet style served from an old rowing boat, and served in the main restaurant - they have a nice downstairs restaurant for evening dining.
The room keys are a little tight for the locks, many of the guests seem to have problems with this... Including someone who came back into the hotel at 1am when the reception is closed. They were very loud in the hallway for around 30 mins which was a bit annoying!
All in all, I recommend this hotel if you want a quiet getaway from Stockholm. It seems to be where the Swedes go for the summer too.
