Farosunds Fastning

Reviewed September 20, 2010

We stayed several days at the hotel in July. The outside environment is gorgeous, very quiet and directly at the sea. The restaurant looks nice but the offered food is not exceptionally great and the portions are really small (better do not arrive hungry). The hotel rooms are ok for two persons (do not move in with children, then it become pretty tight) and partially without windows. Even the rooms with windows are only aired via aircondition. Beside the manager, who is trying to fullfil all wishes, the service personal is not very well trained.
Then indoor pool is small, the outside jacuzzi ok. Overall, no corresponding value for money.

Fårösund is probably one of the most beutiful places in the world. However, it is not worth paying Fårösunds fästning a visit. The food is overpriced and overrated and the service is lousy (non existing). However, the coffe is good. I would suggest you park the car outside the restaurant and then go for a lovely walk in the beautiful surroundings instead of getting neglected by a bunch of self absorbed waiters.

We had been advised there is a boutique hotel on Gotland, close to the beloved island , Fårö, of the Swedish director Ingemar Bergman. One thing is clear, Ingemar Bergamn would never have put his foot inside this place. It is an insult to Gotland.
The location is good. But that is where it stops. The hotel is built in a fortress, which means that the rooms are without windows, small, feeling like prison cells. The ventilation is poor. The staff is totally stuck up, and behaves like they are not interested in you as a guest. We were promised a number of things which the staff totally ignored. The food (which should be good, since the place is run by a famous chef in Stockholm) is nothing special at all. It was without flavor, and totally overpriced. The rooms in the hotel are also overpriced. There is a sadness over the place.
One thing was good - breakfast. Now, we are checking out!!!

If you want to enjoy Stockholm in Gotland, this may be a choice for you. If you want to avoid brats and arrogant staff - skip this place!!
