As soon as you cross the bridge onto Skeppsholmen Island, you can sense you are in for something special. To be surrounded by trees, lawns and within 50 metres of the harbour makes this place a great location.
We visited Skeppsholmen some 8 years ago and then it had only the Museum open with everything else boarded up. Now you can walk all round the island, see some old tug boats and take in the views of Stockholm. All very pleasant.
Yet an easy 30 minute walk along the harbour front takes you into the shopping area or Gamla Stan.
The hotel itself was previously a military barracks and you can tell this from the long corridors through out the building.
We had an upgrade to a sea facing room on the first floor. Not a perfect view as trees, fully in leaf and laden with apples, obscured things a little.
The room was Swedish design and decor at its best. We loved the light in the shower which illiminated the falling water.
We had two evening meals there and enjoyed them, although as seems to be the way in Sweden, there were only 4 or so choices for each course. Food in Sweden is very expensive and these were probably the most expensive meals I have ever paid for.
Staff all very pleasant and welcoming. Breakfast excellent.
No tea or coffee facilities on our room.
I think this is probably the best hotel I have stayed in because of the standard of the hotel and location.
