Reviewed 24 April 2014

We stayed at this hotel during this Easter with some friends and our kids. The rooms are small but the reception area is rather big and cozy and is a good place to relax and to have a talk. The pool has a "normal" hotel standard and is not very big but our kids had a lot of fun in it and it is also possible to take a swim (it´s a long narrow tub). Parking is very convenient and free for the guests. It was also a nice playroom for the kids. But best of all- the staff was very friendly and service minded. They made this a very good stay for our family and our friends. Breakfast was OK but not exceptionally. Cleanliness in the room was not to good either. The hotel is close to the E6 and the surroundings are not beautiful. I would also guess that public transportation is rather poor from this area. But all in all it was a very good experience.

Hej Gatsby

Tack så mycket för att du tog dig tid att bedöma oss på Tripadvisor och tack för ditt fina omdöme.

Kul att du trivdes hos oss och att personalen var toppen!
Gällandes rummen är det något vi kontinuerligt jobbar på att bli bättre och bättre så tack för dina synpunkter.

Kollektivtrafiken är fantastisk, det finns inte något hotell utanför stan i Göteborg som har bättre kan jag lova, jättesynd att ni inte testade, nästa gång ställ bilen så slipper ni betala dyr parkering i stan. Bussen till stan går var 5-10 minut och vipps så är du mitt i centrum 8 minuter senare. Till Svenska mässan/liseberg/universeum 17min utan byte. På bussen kan man betala med kort om man vill.

Hoppas ni snart kommer och besöker oss igen
Med vänliga hälsningar

The Hotel is situated 100 meters from the E6 motorway, which is one of the busiest motorways in Sweden. Despite closing the windows and ventilation, there was no escaping the noice from the motorway.

Bathroom cleaning was showing signs of neglect. Lime scale and suspicious looking black spots (mildew?)

Nice breakfast, free parking and friendly staff helps this hote from receiving a worse grade.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the back of the hotel are some what more quiet, but not really great either.

Hej

Först vill jag passa på att tacka för dina synpunkter från din senaste vistelse hos oss på Scandic Backadal, det betyder oerhört mycket för oss.

Ett litet tips inför nästa vistelse be att få rum på baksidan av hotellet där är det inte så mycket trafikljud.

Tack än en gång, hoppas du besöker oss igen

Med Vänliga Hälsningar

The family room was the same size as the twin room, the only difference was the bunk beds which pulled down from the wall. The rooms were clean and tidy and cleaned everyday. Our children loved having their beds tidied and their teddies/soft toys arranged - very sweet.
The pillows were square and a little on the small side - one each. We were not able to control the heating and it felt a little nippy in the evenings.
The staff were helpful and recommended the Gron Express into Gothenburg centre, an easy efficient and very regular bus service.
Towels were provided for the swimming pool.
As recommended by another reviewer we requested a teen room along with the family room.
There was lots to eat at breakfast.
No kettles in the rooms which would have been good.
The gym and pool were well kept and not busy.
We would recommend the hotel - lots of families staying there.

Stayed: February 2014

This hotel is not in a great location, it's situated right next to the motorway north of the city centre. If you have a car, then it's an ok place to spend the night, the rooms are ok, most of them recently renovated. Friendly service, free parking, and an ok restaurant.

Dear Grokhe

I’m glad you have taken the time to write a comment about us regarding your previous stay at Scandic Backadal. Next time I can recommend you to try the buss, Grön Express. Buss stop is only 2 minutes walk from the hotel and the bus ride is only 9 minutes to the city center of Gothenburg. Im traveling with this bus every day and it´s great. Thank you again for responding.

Stayed here for 2 nights in August as part of our tour of Denmark and Sweden. Good hotel that is clean with good food and loads of parking in a secure garage. The usual comfortable Scandic beds, although a little far out of the city there is a good bus service into the city we will stay again I am sure.
