Nice hotel with very good service. The location, in the middle of the town is great. A little bit small dining room, but it´s possible to sit a floor down. If you go by car, they offer a garage spot around the corner, for approx. 150 SEK.

Got a very small room at the hotel. We stayed from saturday until sunday and saturday evening/night was very noisy outside our window so we had a bad sleep. The room was very simple but the breakfast buffe was ok. Not one of the better hotels.

Room was nice and clean with comfortable bed and nice bathroom. Wifi comes with individual password and works very well. We appreciated the afternoon baked goods and the included buffet dinner.

Convenient and highly professional staff. Evening meal not only well prepared but adds value to the travel budget that is rarely parallel. The reception staff are very helpful from local info to luggage. Excellent breakfast selection of food, coffee, and tea.
