Note that this is a review of Slottshotellet's Annex, which is their budget accommodation.
The room as such was large enough for us (two adults, one child) and the beds were good enough. And "good enough" could be used as an over all label for the general experience of the Annex.
What then should they do to get a Very Good (4) for the money paid?
Well, in no particular order they need more than three clothes-hangers in a three-person room; somewhere to place the toiletry kit except on the bathroom floor; and perhaps somewhere to place clothes when showering. A bedside table or two would come in handy, too, instead of having to have reading material, phone/alarm clock or glass down on the floor, and a guest folder detailing local restaurants that still exist wouldn't come amiss either.
And I've stayed at cheaper hotels that still offer a small fridge - it doesn't need to be a minibar facility.
Also I might be a perfectionist but I expect signs of previous guests being removed from a hotel room, such as the old fries found under an armchair.
The breakfast is decent and the staff is service minded - this helps the general impression and is a marked improvement from my previous stay.
In evenings a light dinner is served, courtesy of the hotel. Husband, who all in all thinks higher of this hotel than I do, have stayed here while travelling alone and according to him this dinner is decent enough if you're just after food. This would come in nice if your stay is due to work.
The location is great, close to both town, railway station and bus station, and practically IN the castle park/city park, and across the street from the art museum. We have never experienced problems with parking.
