Wonderful setting in Sweden
Posted Jun 23, 2015
Stayed for 2 nights in early June. The setting is stunning and it's easy to find just off the main road. Greeted by the excellent front of house staff - they couldn't have been more helpful - and found our room in one of the houses in the grounds (the "superior" rooms are 6 to a "house"). Whilst spacious, airy and clean, they now need a bit of TLC and the facilities are a bit sparse - no drawers in the wardrobes. The lower floor rooms, especially the bathrooms, need net curtains or somesuch as our room was in full view of anyone using the outside staircase from an upper room and we had to keep the bathroom curtains drawn - a bit gloomy!
I'm sure we were just unlucky in that a bunch of extremely noisy guests (not Swedish but close neighbours) were in another house in the gardens and they partied (it was "Scandinavian Independence" weekend) until well into Sunday morning with their loudspeakers facing the rest of the hotel. We heard everything, despite the double glazing (it was a warm summer night and there was no a/c) and were forced to call the hotel staff who, once again, were magnificent in dealing with a large group of very inebriated "guests" and it all eventually quietened down at about 03.30.
Apart from that, it was a lovely place to stay and we'll go back again (although we'll pick our dates more carefully, perhaps!). Top marks to the excellent staff - thank you.
