I have never stayed at the hotel, however I have been many times to the Spa- and it is fabulous. I can just loose myself for hours here, and leave fresh, relaxed and rejuvenated. I have also eaten in the restaurant and have found it to be wonderful food. The staff are all really wonderful.

As the title suggests it's pretty hard to rate this hotel. It has good points and also bad points. The good. Fantastic welcome from everyone in the hotel. Whenever we spoke to a member of the team they were welcoming and helpful, invariably they greeted guests with a big smile and a cheery "Hej Hej". The hotel has a striking... More

The restaurant I have to say is the worst, quality of the food is really poor and the staff seems to have no clue about service. If I were to go to... More
