“Excelent located Hotel.”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Kanalhotellet has a fantastic location at the GØTA-channel in a small Swedish city: Karlsborg.
The hotel built in 1894 and is verey well maintained and renovated. The owner today is 4 generation Axelsson and wall paintings from early days giving the hotel real high class atmosphere. We had two days stay with excelent food and top service.

The rooms are cozy. We were in the annexe building not the original hotel. The location on the the bank of the canal cannot be bettered. Beautiful vistas in every direction, especially lovely at dusk across the lake.

We have not stayed here ourselves, but often use it for guests. Their comments have always been highly positive.

We had dinner with 7 members of our family this week. The food was incredible.. Not enough stars in the sky to represent the experience. Lovely steaks, rödding (a superior type of salmon). The desserts and starters were the best! I would suggest booking a table and preorder the food based on their recommendation. You will not be disappointed.

The owner cooks and the staff are friendly, subtle and not pushy with a sense if humor. You do not feel you need to leave!

My mother and I had a week in Stockholm and touring around Lake Vattern and this was the best hotel. We had a nice room in the annex with a balcony overlooking the river. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were all very nice. There were lovely walks to be done along the canal right from the hotel. Very much recommended!!

Clearly, this family owned hotel has a long history of welcoming guests from all parts of the world. The location couldn't be better, a lovely view of the boats that pass by is a great reminder of life in the slow lane. Food is traditional and very well prepared. All in all, this hotel is such a gem, it's well worth a detour in order to spend a few days at this wonderful establishment.

Stayed here one night, had a lovely room overlooking the Gota Canal, little boats passing, quiet location, excellent bed, tv and all the trimmings. Lovely to sit on the small balcony, read and see the boats pass by.
Breakfast was great, in a lovely decorated dining area.
