We booked this hotel at short notice via internet which all went well. Before booking we had contacted the hotel ans asked if we could bring our two dogs, which waesn't a problem, and no extra charge.
At arrival my (swedish) wife went for a walk with the dogs, during which I would check-in (I'm danish). I got the room, but quickly found out that it was a smoker room - I went back to the reception and asked for a non-smoker room (in danish - which is understandable in this part of sweden), and was told that it was not possible, cause the smoker rooms was also the rooms for dogs, but I could get a fresh air spray. My wife is allergic to smoke which I told the receptionist, but without any luck. I instead told him that I would discuss this with my wife and make a decision. When my wife came back we decided to book another hotel (which allows dogs and has non-smoking rooms), and then my wife told the receptionist (in swedish) that we wanted to check-out - and suddenly there was no problem - we could get a non-smoker room! Well that has to be the first - discrimination because of my language! It was quite late so, we decided to stay at the hotel. The rooms are a good size, a bit worn, but clean. The breakfast buffet is quite large. I wanted to give the hotel a least an 'average', but because og the language discrimination it's a 'poor', so before you visit the hotel, brush up on your swedish, cause it will give you a better service!
