“warm, friendly hotel in lovely small town”
Reviewed September 16, 2008

We stayed at the Gasslingen for a wedding and had a lovely weekend. Our group had the whole place to ourselves which worked really well. Our room was a bit on the small side and quite plain, but clean and comfortable. I saw some of my friends' rooms however and they seemed to do much better, so definitely worth asking for a large room.The interior of the hotel is cool; quite simple but very light and airy with a lovely central courtyard area and also a great outdoor pool. The food was also very good and the breakfast buffet gave lots of choice. The town itself is really cute if a little 'Truman show'! Good place to spend a few days chilling out though.

  • Liked — light, airy central courtyard area
  • Disliked — room was a little bit spartan in terms of furnishing
  • Stayed June 2008, traveled with friends

We stayed in this hotel in August 07 as part of a trip to see the southern Sweden peninsula.

I loved the location and setting of this hotel. Skanor is a picture pretty small Swedish seaside town with whitewashed woodboard houses, and typical swedish design. It's pretty and quiet, but has a few restaurants, interiors and clothes shops, coffee houses etc. Further up near to the harbour there are a couple of very good fish restaurants. The nearby beach is pleasant enough and has prettily painted beach huts alongside it. A beautiful place. The location of the hotel does not disappoint either, it is located near the old town square opposite the old town hall and a white limestone church, in a very peaceful spot.

The main communal areas of the hotel were very well designed, with glass atrium and open fire. It was an eclectic mix of modern vs traditional swedish and very well done. The restaurant area faces out onto the outdoor swimming pool area. The pool is smallish but the whole area is tastefully done. There is a separate area off the pool which includes a small gym with hottube etc, you can also sunbathe on a terrace above this from which you can see the sea.

Our room was in the main house and one of the attic rooms. It was furnished in traditional Swedish style. The room was clean, and comfortable. The beds were comfortable and towels and linen were of good quality. The bathroom was spotless, of high quality and had an excellent shower. Breakfast each morning was taken in the dining room downstairs overlooking the pool and was a hot/ cold buffet style, beautifully presented and of good quality.

There is so much about this hotel that very nearly makes it excellent, and I would definitely stay there again. However, in some ways it was rather bizarre. It sort of felt like we were staying in someone's house at times rather than a hotel, except the host wasn't there alot of the time. On the first night we went downstairs for dinner to be told that the restaurant was closed, but we hadn't been told this when we checked in, it was all just a bit odd. That said, the guy on reception happily pointed us in the direction of a local restaurant.

There were very few staff around in this hotel, on most occasions there was usually just one person in the main house on the reception desk. We never really needed to find anyone or needed anything so none of this was really a problem, but I think with a little bit more attention to the personal details this hotel could go from good to great.

I have very fond memories of staying here, it was a beautiful hotel in a wonderful peaceful location. I would recommend both Skanor and Hotel Gasslingen.
