It felt like you didn't give a damn about your customers. You have a product that they want, and you're sure to sell it no matter what you present your customers with. The bathrooms were dirty, and in the outdoor ones, paper towel was often missing. It just was very run down and dirty. Many, if not all of the... More

People reading reviews of this property should be aware that the reviews on Tripadvisor seems to be a mixture of the hotel, "stuga"/cottage and camping. We stayed at the hotel: A unique hotel with good location close to Astrid Lindgren World, i.e. approx 5 min by car. Good and family friendly food at the restaurant - both breakfast and dinner....

The summer holyday included a visit to Wimmerby! And offcourse the Astrid Lindgrens world. We stayed in this cottage. The area is nice. But do not expect any wifi coverage it is too far from the hotel. The cottage did not have toilet facilities but a toilet building was avaliable very close to the cabin. We played minigolf and had...

Very unique hotel. Interesting w celebrating locals from the past w the names of the rooms and portraits. Extremely friendly great staff. Wonderful breakfast and dinner buffet. Even a bar w some good beer and whisky after a long fun day at Astrid Lindgren world with the kids - dad or mam can reward themselves with night cap. Not far... More

I can not recommend this run down place on the outskirts of Vimmerby (3-4 km from the City Center and Astrid Lindgrens Värd, which probably is what you came here for). For a so-called "Stuga", which is a small hut (3 x 4 meters), you pay a whooping $145 (SEK 950) per night, more than a standard hotel room in... More

Chose this hotel for our visit to Vimmerby since we got a good deal; 2 nights in a family room (4 persons) for 1500 sek. The room had a double bed, sofa bed and a crib and a desk with chair. The hotel in general was OK for being a three star hotel, but it was obvious that they just... More
