“More a hotel than a site”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Very nice park, a beautiful castle that used to be a monastery, but it is not a historic site like Glimmingehus is. However, if you are looking for a decent hotel with a very good kitchen to enjoy a summer evening, then you have come to the right place.

And... it´s haunted!

“Interesting castle a bit outside of Kristianstad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

This castle (hotel-restaurant) is listed as being in Kristianstad but is acutally about a 15-20 min. drive outside the city. We arrived in the late afternoon thinking we might be able to get dessert or coffee but that did not seem to be possible. They do serve lunch and dinner. Another reviewer mentioned a museum but we did not find that and the shop was closed. A quick look around and then down the road.

“Hotel/Restaraunt in old castle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

Have visited a few times. The grounds are pretty for a walk-- right on a nice lake. Went to a company Christmas party here. The food and decor was impressive-- a traditional Swedish smorgasbord which even included a variety of wild game like wild boar, moose and reindeer as well as a ton of seafood. There are often events here. My daughter watched a play on the grounds and will have her Studenten ball here-- beautiful backdrop for things like that.

“Magnificent historic buildings - but park in need of TLC.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

The setting for Bäckaskog slott (castle) has such potential, being situated on a strip of land between large lakes. The building itself is imposing, but the park grounds are in need of an investment in new and imaginative planting. Trees have been felled due to disease and old age but there is little done to replace them. The park gains a special magic when covered in snow, but during the summer it could have so much more to offer. Note the the hotel owners are not responsible for the park, being a State Historic Building/Park, but all would benefit if SFV were able to invest in landscaping and planting for the future.

“Lovely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

We took a short look around the beautiful interiors of the lovely Slott and then had a wonderful walk around the grounds. We had a big group of about 20 relatives for dinner. Everything was delicious and the service was terrific. So glad we got to experience this lovely spot!
