The whole hotel was old and worn out. In serious need of renovation. The interior and furniture are from the 90's. There was only two choices (the third was a three course meal) in the restaurant in the evening and very expensive which was a let down since the hotel is quite far from any other restaurants. Had to ask... More

The location of the hotel is its best asset. A magnificent view of the town and far away mountains. Great! But once inside in many of the rooms where there is no view or just a limited view over roofs or some trees the age of the hotel is easily felt. Modernisation is ongoing, but if you are unlucky to...

Got to my room which was thought to be from the early 70th century with the creaking bed and broken fittings. Got... More

The stay at First Billingehus was a very pleasant surprise with a very high degree of service. I have stayed at this hotel three times before but it have never been better. The manager and his staff was focused on offering the highest level of service and I will definitely stay there again.

First of all, we do not at all recognize the bad critique given this hotel at TripAdvisor, it is simply as far from our experience as can be. From the very first investigative contact to our arrival and stay here, we have been met by kind, smiling and very helpful staff. Our windscreen is even cleaned from ice in the... More

The environment outdoor was magnificent. The hotel staff is very kind and helpful. The breakfast menu was fantastic. The hotel was clean and tidy. We stayed in a room without carpet and it is preferable. A tip is to ask for it when booking hotel.

Bad service, not very much on the menu for dinner. The breakfast is ok. Also bad service in the helpdesk, no welcome, no thank you or welcome back! The location is good, nice view over the city, and nice areas around. The gym is ok. I was much better for a couple a years ago.
