“Nice location, but the room is in need of a refurbishment.”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

This is my second stay at this hotel. Last time I got a room in the new part of the hotel and I was satisfied with the room.
This time we got a room in the old part of the hotel, close to the reception/bar/dance floor. The room was quiet worn and in need of a refurbishment. The carpet under the window was wet after the rainfall in the morning. Don’t go to bed before the music ends around 01:00 am, the noise level from the music will keep you awake anyway.
Breakfast was good, we didn’t miss anything.
The room appears clean. The staff is friendly and service minded. We will probably stay here again, but I will specify that I want a room in the new part of the hotel (away from the reception).

Room Tip: Get a room in the new part of the hotel. The standard of the rooms are much better in the new part.

The most appealing aspects of TanumStrand Hotel are its scenic location - nestled in a cove off the western archipelago - and outdoor amenities catering to water sports enthusiasts and landlubbers alike. This family-friendly spot is a popular destination among 'Scandihooligans', so if you're looking for a peaceful layover May - July, look elsewhere. The hotel rooms are tidy, spartan and functional, if uninspiring - priced right. Cabins are also available, as well as tent and caravan space. The Swedish staff are friendly, helpful and efficient.

TanumStrand lies perfectly placed right on the beaches of Bohuslän. In summer you will have thousands of tourists and yachts here, but in early April it was almost deserted.
Came here for a short business conference and enjoyed the scenery, the restaurant and the indoor swimming pools. The rooms were no more than average, but the location and view from the attached balcony made up for it.

Second time here, both for company events. Hotel is pretty well looked after, rooms are clean, well decorated and a standard set of amenities. Conference rooms are pretty uninspiring, both in decor and in outlook, but all the kit worked and the staff were flexible. Wifi was fine, and the chairs were comfortable enough for three hour sessions.

Food was plentiful, but cannot say it was anything but standard fare, with little to recommend or criticise. Bar had a decent selection of spirits, but beer /wine list was pretty threadbare. Plus points, the staff were great, prepared to have a laugh, and still provide good service, reception staff were right on the button, helping me get back to Gotenburg unexpectedly.( do not recommend the connections, it is either really slow or really expensive, but limited choices).

There are pools, hot tubs ( not hot enough by a long way) and a spa, which I was told was good. Throught the summer there is a program of entertainment. It looked like we were supposed to know the names, but guess it is a Swedish thing. Apart from sit around drinking, walking the coastal paths and a bit of golf, there is a selection of outdoor activities organised and otherwise, pretty family orientated.

To be honest, not sure why anyone would come here for more than a weekend, it just has nothing to differentiate it. It is a very run of the mill spot, though pretty location next to the sea / marina. I enjoyed the couple of days here, but that was enough, and it is definitely a company retreat in my view.

The drive to the hotel is an interesting one, rather lengthy from the highway on the way from Göteborg to Oslo. One arrives in a clearing to find a hotel that is a mixture of modern, 19th century fittings that one might find in northern Germany in films that one sees before World War II.
A definite golf atmosphere with only mini golf.
View on the beautiful bay. The town of Grebbested is a 20 minute walk away along the length of a path that leads from the hotel to the town.
Dinner buffet was excellent in a refreshing Swedish family atmosphere: a great place to stay for one night on the way to see Vanum.

Expensive for what it is for sure.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view on the bay or harbor.

A good place to stay on the Swedish westcoast. Both with your family or if you want to have a weekend with your friends. I have been there several times.

Room Tip: You can choose to have a cottage or a hotel room, both are nice

Stayed here for easter 2012. Hotel is lovely situated by the sea. Restaurant serves very nice food, had several specials at easter, with lower prices. Hotel has pool area with slide, dd had a nice time here. Could maybee have a special rate for repeat use. As u pay each entry. Outside nice playing area for kids, with jumping castles. Has mini golf but this is very run down, even though better than last year, but could do with a total upgrade. Lots of entertainment in the evenings. We stayed in nice house, not at accual hotel rooms. Great in summer for fishing and sea bathing. Will come back.
