I love the setting of this hotel just by Kalmarsund and the Borgholm castle ruin not far away. My room was very nice and I had views of the sea. Very comfortable bed and excellent with multiple nice pillows.
On the bad side was that the floor tiles were very, very slippery so I felt like Bambi on ice sometimes. You really needed shoes or slippers on.
Another thing that there are plenty of is bats so I would recommend you not having your window open at least at night.
The public areas was OK but not more. They really should do with an update and the public toilets were horrible. Broken floor tiles, very old toiletrings and smell (not a good one) on the toilets was very surprising to me. A hotel that wants to uphold a good reputation must have good public areas and especially toilets.
The food was not up to standard. We had a jubilee dinner and the most tasteful was the starter soup. The meat we couldn't even cut and it was the same the day before. So don't go hear just to eat.
Breakfast was OK but no more.
