Conference hotel overlooking a great beach, very popular amongst large Groups. Several restaurants, buffet restaurant reminded me more of a holiday resort/canteen in the summer, crowded with guests.
My partner and I were prepared to spend extra cash on a bigger room with a view, but found out there are no proper double beds - what the hotel calls double bed consists of two separate beds pushed together with a gap. Nothing to look forward to as far as a romantic weekend is concerned.
great pool, Indoor and outdoor, but can be crowded and noisy. Parking lot is crammed, many guests shy the long walk from remote parking positions and block the driveway.
Lots of very good photographies and Pictures in public areas

Room Tip: cannot really recommend a double room, because "double bed" consists of two separate beds...

This is one very good hotel with a fantastic location.
Very well decorated with art and photos, which can also be purchased.
There is also a very good trim and sauna department inside of the hotel.
The beach is only a minute away from the hotel

Room Tip: Choose a room in the new part of the hotel, the old one is poor.

The hotel is very close to the sea and a rather short taxi ride away from the city center of Halmstad. My twin bed room was of moderate size and well equipped but far too hot, probably due to sun exposure during the day. It was only possible to open the window a couple of inches and there was no air conditioning. The heat made sleep very difficult. Breakfast was good and included in the rate.

This hotel was built in the 1960s on a beautiful location on the coast. The hotel property is well maintained and the art collection in the halls is alone worth a visit. Easy check in and great service.

Our room was on the 4th floor (430), moderately sized with comfortable beds and furniture. The bathroom was high quality and very functional. The American in me missed the in room coffee maker, but that's not much of a complaint. Has an in room safe.

No issues with noise or sleeping.

The Spa was a highlight - included in the room price. They have a full schedule of classes and activities. My wife enjoyed the yoga while I was in the sauna and ice water dip pool. The relax floor (yes, floor) has the very nice exercise room with ocean views, yoga and activity rooms plus steam room, showers, indoor warm pool and outdoor warm pool. On the first floor is a large swimming pool, 2 bubble pools and a large dry sauna. The in spa bar has a limited menu of wine and beer. The full bar is elsewhere, but you probably want something other than a bathing suit for that bar... You don't need a bathrobe or slippers (in the room, complimentary) but bring your bathing suit.

Dinner was part of our packet - 3 courses plus wine with each course. Excellent presentation of each course, great taste and decent wines for the price. The service was slow, but not annoyingly so. The wait staff were running their legs off. Busy with 2 large parties/banquets plus the entire dining room. The busser was a bit clueless but nice (tried to take my wife's dinner plate while she was still eating, didn't ask her first) and a few small things.

The breakfast buffet - one of the best I've been to. Broad spectrum of cold and warm foods to meet most tastes.

I would definitely recommend it for a couples weekend without reservation. It wasn't a 5, but I had a great time.

This is a hotel placed on the most spectacular beach in Sweden, owned by the famous pop star Per Gessle. The building is from the 60's but there are a refreshment going on all the time and part of the hotel is almost new. The SPA is great, service is on top and several restaurants to choose from. In the summer you have probably the best beach in Sweden just outside the hotel, other seasons you can walk the beaches and narrow walkways north and south from the hotel. A very good Golf Course, used by Solheim Cup some years ago, is just a few hundred meters from the hotel. Breakfast top class. If you are lucky on a summer visit, there is a consort going on in Solgården, a stage just outside the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the new part of the hotel.

Two out of three nights sleepless due to extremely loud banging noises from the roof (vent housing?). Weather was windy and gusting, and the roof construction apparently is up to anything but calm weather. Room was cold and we caught a cold from this three day ordeal. I did tell the receptionist about the malfunctioning radiator, but to not avail.

Paying a premium price for such terrible experience is a major let down.

Suggest you avoid rooms numbered in the 4-hundreds.
