“Under construction”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2013

The hotel is under renovation, and that we were not disclosed. There was a lot of renovation work in the weekend.

The hotel was generally poor cleaning in public premises. There was a gum on the carpet in the hallway when we arrived, it was there too when we went. The hotel is characterized by being older and worn. Staff at reception were very pleasant and helpful.

The rooms were clean and simple with good beds. The cleaning was excellent, and the same with maids. They did a great job!

Located just outside Gothenburg, and you need a car to get it out. It is a quiet area and you sleep well.

It was good and breakfast buffet. It contained everything we could wish for. Starting too early on weekends, but keeping perhaps a little short for those who want to sleep longer than 9

The restaurant was bad and expensive food. The meat was not properly cooked, the potatoes were cold and lacked else on the plate. The waiter was never visited our table after the order arrived at the table, even though he had forgotten the food to one. He gave us no attention, so we spent 45 minutes to get the bill paid. We paid this at the reception afterwards. Gave way up the restaurant.

Rooms are generally small, so I recommend checking with the hotel directly if there are any larger room availability.

Do not book online! The price you get when you call can be cheaper, also does not order online either. Notifies about availability when it is not. Allows you to even order, you end up with ordered room you get.

Room Tip: There are uninformed about this, but the hotel chain has its own teenagerooms! Travelling with older...

Great breakfast buffet. Ordinary rooms. Good staff. Some distace to downtown but it is reflected in price. Clean room. Fair restaurant but not allways open. Late arrival is no problem if notice is given. Easy check out. Easy booking via internet. Well established and trusted chain.

Location of the hotel is I'd say - average. Hotel is located a bit in the suburbs, next to the main road. If you have a car it's great. Otherwise it's not bad either, as you can reach the town center very easily using the public transportation. The room was pretty spacious, very nice and comfortable, however - there was kind of a blackboard on one of the walls. I don't understand a reason, as the room wasn't big enough to lead a presentation or something like that. :) Breakfast was very good. Staff kind and helpful. Recommended!

I stay here frequently for business and am always impressed by the friendliness of the staff (even the housekeeping!). The daily dinner buffet offers a good meal for a very reasonable price. Nothing fancy, just a nice plate of food after a hard day's work. Breakfast buffet is nice and varied. The regular rooms are a bit outdated though... Very classy in the nineties, but not really up to standard today. Furniture looks a bit worn out, but is clean and the bed is comfortable.

Good breakfast with lots of choice. Comfortable rooms and good service. Clean and near a bus stop with a journey of 15 minutes to the centre of town. A bit expensive though, considering it is not in the centre.

Room Tip: Our room was beside a service elevator, which was quite noisy. Best to ask for a room that is not be...

We have been here two times with children. It is an average standard hotel with affordable prices. Children recieve a small gift when you check in. A playroom with playstation and a drawingtable in the lobby was fun for the kids.It`s easy to find this hotel and it`s just ten minutes from the city center. A bit dull and old room, but with good beds. Excellent breakfast with healthy, organic choices as well as bacon, pancakes and danish... The service was good, the room clean and the pool small but nice. Very low standard dressing room but the poolroom was ok. We had a view over the highway, not very exciting, but no noise either, it was quiet in the room at night.

A very good stay in this hotel; very warm welcome, very nice attention in the room in this Christmas period with special drinks, chocolate and cakes.
A good quality restaurant with a nice buffet for diner at a raisonnable price.
Breakfast was somptuous, large choice, good quality and pleasant.
Swimming pool is also interesting even if smal when 5 swimmers inside!
Next time in Göteborg sur I will stay there.
