I booked the Art Glass Experience package which included the room for 2 nights, 2 days breakfast buffet, 1 lunch, and 2 nights of 3 course dinners. First off, the staff was very welcoming and the hotel is beautiful with glass art everywhere. We enjoyed wandering around to see it all. Definitely check out the bar!! The breakfast buffet was...

My best memory from this hotel is to sit in the relax area, in front of the fire, reading a book. I loved that! Also, the pool is nice, and I like the glass art in the rooms. The food was ok, and so was the spa treatments.

Perhaps the most ambitious hotel project in Sweden in recent years. Attention to details in all aspects; exclusive glass art everywhere, gourmet cuisine, and professional staff. Surrounded by outlet shops, museums, restaurants and other attractions. All this in a small industrial village in the Småland forests. Ideal for the well-to-do urban couple on a romantic getaway roadtrip.

Arrogant and self-centered staff at the bar and really bad bar food. On our visit the 21/7 we got broken Oysters on the chopped peel which gave lots of shell splinters. Burgers were cold with a blackened bottom. Had to wait for over 40 minutes between dishes. Unpleasant bartender when I ask for condiments and accessories Unfortunately, this is what... More

Very happily surprised by this hotel. Doesn't look like much from the outside, but once you step into the lobby, you know you are in for something different. There is glass art everywhere -- the ceilings, the walls, the courtyards, restaurants and rooms. The rooms were fine and the beds comfortable. We loved the artwork in the hallways and even... More

It's worth going to Sweden just to stay here. Each room has a half-dozen pieces of art glass by a named glass artist. The hallways are lined with glass art. The hanging sculpture of a hot air balloon in the lobby is a wonder. Everywhere you look, there's something beautiful. Besides, it's comfortable, the breakfast buffet is lavish, and the... More

The room was well designed and the pool area simply beautiful. Avoid using extra beds since the room will be totally crammed, next time we will split the family in two rooms instead. The breakfast was very good and included everything to be expected.

The premises themselves are quirky for a small place like this: Huge outlet store right next to the hotel gives the impression that this might be a place where certain people come for shopping :) The hotel itself is nice, clean and quiet.

We loved the hotel! The glass art found everywhere, the decoration of our room, the food, the friendly staff and the relaxing spa. We hope to go back some time and perhaps bring some foreign guests that could appreciate the facilities.
