Reviewed 22 July 2013

Yes of course it's Atrid lindgren's varld, I can't think of another reason to come to Vimmerby. This herrgård was quite a lovely old Swedish manor house in a great location. Taking two small children on an adventure is always a challenge for parents as you start to think about 4 people in a small room and the chaos that erupts. Well we stayed in their mini suite and I would say size was ok but price was extravagant (I've been to other Herrgårds where the standard was x 50 for similar price). The food was very nice as was the limited selection of wines (although limited they chose wisely what to stock) which went down perfectly after a day of theatre and stories. They also have a great grass and sand beach which was perfect for little ones, a bit tricky for older ones as its quite shallow and I'm not sure how far out you must go deep. I've rated it as good only for the room standard vs price, and the staff who were nice but in experienced (we ordered champagne one night and I think the girl panicked as she didn't know what to do - cute but I expect at least to train them in these simple things). We will definitely be back...

We have been coming regulary to Fredensborgs Herrgård 6 times the past 7 seven years. That itself speaks as a review. Sure the lodging quarters aren't the newest but the recent bathroom renovations was great to see. The main building is very nice and the food hold strong even though it was even better a few years ago. The play grond and football field is great and if you are in to golf I can definately recommend an early morning round before you take off to "Astid Lindgrens värld" which ís our main targets for our visits. Having said that we now also look forward to Fredensborgs herrgård as such. Well worth a visit as a family and a golfer:-)

Room Tip: Check out the package to visit "Astrid Lindgrens Värld"

This place has a definite traditional Swedish touch. Golf is prominent but families with kids feel very welcome as well and if you plan to visit Astrid Lindgrens Värld with family this would be my #1 choice.

There is an excellent swimming spot by the lake, where the water is shallow for the first 50 meters or so, allowing plenty of space for kids to play in the water. The beach itself is a small grass field.

The restaurant serves good but expensive food. However service in the restaurant seems.. unprofessional for lack of a better word. This does not mean it wasn't friendly, but for example, we were told to book a table and could not book a the time we wanted, but a bit later. When we entered the restaurant only perhaps 1/10 tables had customers, so the delay seemed unnecessary. And once we had completed our dining, we had to wait for a long time to be able to order the check even though at this stage there was hardly anyone at the restaurant (perhaps 3 tables with people anymore). I would still recommend to eat here unless you want to travel around with hungry kids..

Worth mentioning is that the place seemed very accessible if you have trolleys or wheel chairs with you.

We did a round trip through to the south of Sweden and wanted to stay for a night in Vimmerby ("Astrid Lindgren county"). Late in the evening we arrived in this golf hotel. The staff was very busy but even more friendly (Thanks Caroline!!). She offers us a room for a realy fair value (800 SEK, Doubleroom, breakfast included. Regular price was 1400 SEK). The room was clean and beautyful, only the bathroom was just a standard, but also clean and tidy.
The hotel is hosted in a stately manor house dating from 1875, beautifully situated in the middle of the Tobo Golf Course.
The breakfast was really good, we could take it on the terrace with a view on big lake in front of the garden.
Best in the hotel was the hotel sauna. It is located direct to the lake. To calm down after the sauna you have to swim in the lake. Sauna is open untill midnight.
We stayed for a second night, because staff was very friendly and helpful and we could use sauna and kanu for the lake for free - everything was included in the 800 SEK.

We have not played golf, but within a footwalk of less then 5min there are three golf courts, a driving range and a putting green arround the hotel.

I defnetly recommend this hotel to everybody. You can't make mistake to stay here for a night or more!
