Every now and then you stumble across a place that is so much better that you expected. This guesthouse is one of them. Located in idyllic countryside, just a short drive from Lake Vattern and 15 minutes drive from picturesque Vadstena, the Luckerstad B&B is worthy of more than just a night. Regrettably we discovered this too late: we could have stayed here for days. The owner's website is understated: the rooms are well appointed but what the website doesn't show is that there's a large communal area including a sitting room and a fully equipped kitchen. We weren't aware of any of this, and were grateful to have a bit of space in which to spread out. Breakfast is excellent, the owner is charming and hospitable - and her black cat 'Oliver' is usually around to keep animal lovers company. Full marks!
