During Walpurgis Night 2012 my wife and I spent a couple of nights & days (29th Apr – 1st May) at this nice hotel & spa, situated at the shore right outside the enjoyable city of Varberg…with it’s cozy city centre and impressive fortress.
The walking distance, along the great walkway build next to the seaside between the hotel and the city, is approx 3 kilometers. You shall definitely make that stroll!
We even rented bicycles from the hotel for some hours (SEK 50:- for a half day) and made a long, nice bike ride along the coastline in the other direction. It can really be recommended.
The hotel is rather large, with some different buildings. We were accommodated in a rather new built house (“Apelgarden”) at the top floor. The room was a Superior room, and very nice. The bed and madras was of a very exclusive brand (“Carpe Diem”)…however a bit too soft according to our personal taste. We had a magnificent view over the coastline (however, looking over the largest hotel building parting our hotel building from the sea).
The indoor SPA area is very nice, with a number of different pools (hot/cold/Jacuzzi) and saunas to choose between. It is, off course, also possible to book (and pay for) different treatments.
At the Walpurgis Night we had the hotels evening buffet in the restaurant, which a great and large selections of different salads…and the main warm dish that evening; steamed salmon. A number of different other dishes were offered as well (desserts, cheese etc.)
Even the breakfast buffets were nice, however not the best we had at a hotel of this standard (according to my very personal opinion, the range of food was a bit limited).
Another thing to mention about the breakfast, is that - due to the fact that this was a national holiday in Sweden - there were to many guests at the same time in the restaurant.
The employees we met at the hotel were very professional (although some of them were a bit stressed due to all the guests).
Finally: We were very satisfied with our stay, and we will definitely like to come back!
