I was there for a business trip just for one night. I have to report two different views: one regarding the hotel and one for the restaurant. Hotel: it is located in the industrial area, so close to the various Volvo locations; the room for one was rather small without enough space to accomodate clothes and other items, TV channels...

Always a pleasure to stay @ Arken. Friendly price and friendly staff. Rooms are basic, don't wait for luxury. Spa I like a lot. Not too fancy but very relaxing. Many different type of relaxing rooms and saunas. Variety of pools from chilly to hot and several places for complete relaxation. Nature is close, outdoor area is naturally build. Beautiful... More

To be honest, when you're approaching the hotel it is a tad disconcerting as it appears to be in an industrial estate. Don't be put off. The hotel is warm and welcoming and really stylish. We had connecting rooms which were a tad bejou but were very clean. One small note to the hotel, in both rooms the toilet roll... More

This hotel has good facilities. The gym is the best I have seen in a hotel. I didn't try the Spa, but it looked pleasant from what I saw of it. The restaurant has a terrace with a view over the sea and we enjoyed a BBQ buffet for dinner. Breakfast was excellent, with a very large choice from the... More

A really wonderful spa with lots of different saunas and warm/cold swimming pools. Children are not allowed which makes it possible for silence and peace. There are different teas and fruits at the both floors and couches to rest in. One thing I adore the most is the little beds with warm stones, that is a must-do. I definitely recommend... More

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.

Although very unpromising surrounding (Port district, constuctions, industrial) the actuall view from the Spa is realy nice - you get to see the sea, and the place is peacuful and relaxing. It's just a pity some people don't know how to behave at Spa places - a gigling batchellorette crowd can realy ruin quite much of the relaxing atmosphere. Generaly... More
