When you read the reviews and the hotel website along with the awards, the expectations get high. All in all, our stay was nice, but I believe the hotel has been hyped to something that is out of proportion with reality.
As a hotel guest you have to pay 300 SEK extra to enter the spa. You have access to a relaxation area and two pools - one is heated outside, which is nice. However, that seems rather pricey as you've already paid quite some for the room.
The rooms and spa are in beautiful materials and the surroundings are a mix of industrial park and nature with the city on the horizon. It is hard to do anything nearby, so you would need to pay for a taxi or bring your own car. Gothenburg is rather pricey to park in and it is quite chaotic sometimes to drive on your own, so this is a big minus, given that you can get a pool and a central location at the same price. If you come to the park resort, you come for the spa, but as I've mentioned earlier, I think the spa was nice, but nothing special. Strip away the expensive interior and materials, and all you have is two pools. Not enough to get me to drive around in my own car, when I can just stay in the city center and still have a pool and spa treatments.
The nice glass interior backfired aswell, when we took a shower and it got damp. On our "city view" windows it said "DIE". What happened to the cleaning?
As a plus I would mention that the bacon was crisp. You'd think this is how it should be, but my experience is that very few hotels actually take the time to prepare it crispy. A nice little attention to detail.
In essence, what I'm trying to say is, the hotel and the spa is nice, but I think it is abit too expensive.
