We stayed here in July 2016 after a few hours of seeing the Petroglyphs. In hindsight we should not have stayed in Tanum but instead kept going to Oslo or somewhere like Drobak instead. The hotel is old and superficially charming but our room (#4) was small, austere and very noisy being near reception. We ate at the restaurant (... More

Nice turn of century feeling. Rooms ok but not anything special. Had for one of the nights booked an inclusive arrangement with afternoon tea/coffee and gastronomy dinner. Afternoon coffe was an open for everyone serve yourself coffee/ tea and scones. The dinner was select 3 dishes from our fixed menu. Ok well tasting modern food in small portions. Nothing special...

Together with my girlfriend we stayed at the hotel for 3 days in may 2016, a good experience for us. The hotel offer a nice and tasty breakfast, the standard double room is clean (but a little small) and has a very good bed, the staff is friendly and service minded, there is adequate free parking space, and the location...

Billed as one of the oldest of Sweden's traditional coaching inns, the hotel part today is unexceptional, but comfortable and adequate. Do not expect luxury though. The restaurant is housed in the original building, 350 years old, but that is another story. Quiet, clean and cosy, our room was a little on the small size, and the bathroom was tiny,... More

My husband and I had booked a 'superior room' at this hotel and we arrived at 14:30 at the hotel. Knowing that the check in time is 15:00, we asked the reception if room was available already. The man working at the reception said no and ask us to come back later. That was understandable since we arrived early. So... More

It is not that we do not like accomodation in old manors or castles that with a loving regard for small details are carefully brought to modern comfort standards without destroying the atmosphere of the place. In fact, a couple of months ago we actually made a round trip in Burgundy, France, where we stayed at such places on purpose... More

Spent the night here, very charming hotel with service-minded staff. Our room was clean, modern, and had comfortable beds. Free high-speed wifi was a plus, and the hotel restaurant was real treat. Both the hotel and town of Tanum is full of history snd worth exploring. I would love to stay here again!

We stayed two nights during our road trip through Sweden. Basically picked this hotel due to location - near the rock carvings and little fishing villages. Arrived and got no help taking our luggage up the front stairs. The initial room was the size of a closet, so they moved us to a "family" room which was larger and more... More

We stayed for one night last week and were disappointed by the standard of this hotel. Although clean, the room was small, dingy and in need of redecoration. The shower should have been updated several years ago. The television, which was in one corner of the room, was close to falling off the wall where the bracket had come loose.... More

We stayed one night here on our way up the west coast of Sweden. The hotel is inland, very near the UNESCO World Heritage Sight of 3000 year old rock carvings. Fascinating. We ate an excellent meal at the restaurant connected to the hotel. The breakfast at the hotel itself was adequate, not more. Coffee and cookies are offered in... More
