I travel to this place every year and it is always as good. The massages they offer are worth the money and the hotel rooms big and comfortable. Might be that I am a yearly costumer that I get special treatment, however I still think the hotel is a peaceful and nice place.
Not a very big fan of the food however.

The hotel offers two rooms, basic and standard. We had the standard, but were first given a 'basic'. The basic is the worst room I've ever seen. Looked like something you'd find in motel that hasn't been refurbished since the 70s in a remote town.

The we got a second 'standard' room, which was better, but not good. They've obviously done a cheap makeover, refurbishing the part that don't cost much, keeping the old stuff that would cost more to fix (the bath).

The bath has been through a lot of changes, which is evident by all the holes in the tiles on the wall, showing how they've moved and replaced soap dispensers, towel hangers and the like.

The AC control unit has not been changed and is the brown-ish color that white plastic gets when it's been around for 20+ years.

When we were going to bed the first day, our room was humid and very warm and there was no way of turning on the AC. We called the reception who sent maintenance to our room, but they were not able to fix the 20+ year AC either. So, at 1AM we had to pack up our things and move rooms again (second time).

The pool area is good, space wise, however just like the rooms they are aged and filthy. I would suggest that this hotel closes down for a week and clean the pool and its surroundings as they are areas where the filth is in plain sight.

I have included pictures of the filthy bathroom in this review.

On the plus side, the trails for running just outside of the hotel are brilliant.

Room Tip: Stay away in general, but not under any circumstance should you opt for budget rooms.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night. We also had our dog with us. The checkin time was 15:00 but we where there 1 hour to early, I have never been talked to in such a rude and unproffessional way. We had palnned to stay 2 nights but cancelled. The room was ok, I bit oldfashion but clean.
The SPA facilities were very good, but pricey
The summer buffé was ok but not worth the money.

I and my daughter stayed here two nights and we are very satisfied with our visit. Despite from other hotels who called themselves spa this is a Spa! I will specially point out the nice and helpful staff in the spa-reception and Frida, trainer. The trainingprogram contains a various program as well as the treatmentprogram.
We had a budgetroom, it was clean but the view wasn´t the best. You have to lean out from the window if you would see the sea Fryken!
The breakfast was good and assorted. The staff in the restaurant were all nice. We had dinner at the restaurant once, it was grillbuffé, tasted good but it was enough once - not so affordable. The aircondition in the room was a bit noisy. Take earplugs with you. No traffic noise at all.

Room Tip: If you take a budgetroom choose a room as far south as possible (nearest the reception), they must h...

Good service with friendly people, english is a bit of problem for some of them and generally few things are translated from Swedish.
The choice of food isn't very extensive, no real choice for snacks, a bit expensive in the lounge and very expensive restaurant. Breakfast is only served til 10 a.m, no tea or coffee in the room.
Good spa facilities.
