In northern Scandinavia good hotels are not easily found outside the larger towns as Sundsvall, Umeå, Luleå, Bodø, Tromsø and a few others. If you take the inland E45 through Lappland this is particularly true. One of those few good hotels is the hotel Wilhelmina, situated in Vilhelmina, a small town with around 4000 inhabitants. The situation is very convenient for the car tourist; about 500 km south of Kiruna and around 300 km north of Østersund. For our regular travels between central and northern Norway this road is the most convenient; we have stayed here twice, and will do so again, space allowing.
The rooms are adequate, even if the bathrooms are rather spartan. The hotel has a a good restaurant, (with comparatively high prices) and a bistro in the adjacent room. The breakfast was nothing out of the ordinary, but good enough. There is free overnight parking. The hotel is, as you will have seen from previous reviews, situated above the lake Volgsjøn, and the view is beautiful. On a good summers day you can enjoy it from the restaurant terrace.
The price was reasonable, around SEK 1000 (USD 200) for a double room.
