Room I had was basic but clean and simple-nice kitchenette with the basics, and a bigger kitchen just along the corridor. Having stayed in Sweden a few times now hotels seem to feel a lot less personal than elsewhere in Europe, but I don't mind this as I don't spend much time in my room anyway.
Nya Varvet is actually spread across several buildings, with breakfast and reception served in their main admin building, which is fine. There's a supermarket about 5 minutes up the hill that has anything you might want to buy for yourself and is open till 10pm, which was handy.
Breakfast was great-loads of choice and all fresh. Generally very busy so not easy to get a table some days but the view across the marina makes up for it!
The staff were very friendly and professional-anything I asked they were eager to help, and WiFi etc was free. Linen was clean and fresh and towels were changed so very happy.
I cycled from Nya Varvet to the center of town in about 15/20 mins along the waterfront, it's a 10 minute drive from center and easy to find-I'm not sure about the bus links though.
In all, for what I paid i was happy-I would have stayed longer but the prices jumped up to double the nightly rate when I checked and I decided to go elsewhere, which was probably a mistake...
For clean, simple service in a nice picturesque area, I would be more than happy to come back here again.
