dreadful hotel, no longer fit for purpose
despite the willing young staff, this hotel is truely dreadul. I am writing this in our room, on a hot evening at 10.45 p.m. There is no aircon, of course, so the windows have to be open. There has been incessant noise for the last three hours from 4 racing motorbikes speeding round and round the road in front of us, and then over the nearby bridge and back again. This with the traffic to the recycle dump along the road and the industrial site on the island in the middle of the inlet together with noise from neighbouring rooms make the noise levels intolerable in what is marketed as an idyllic peaceful location. Management explains that the racing happens regularly and they complain to the police, but nothing happens. Their solution - offer the guests, paying £160 per night, earplugs!!! This on top of being told, when booking 5 months in advance, that we had the owners 'absolute favourite room' for my wife's 65th birthday, and finding, on arrival, a dingy, small, substandard room and miserable bathroom which she immediately rejected. we were then offered another slightly more acceptable room but told yesterday that we had to quit it as some regulars wanted to take it!!! We have at least found out they will do some washing for us, as there are no facilities at all for guests to use themselves, but that is hardly compensation for this hopeless set up. This hotel is well past its useful life. it is not fit for purpose. It should be closed down.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- You can still discover genuine, unspoilt places. It takes just 15 minutes on the ferry from Saltholmen in Gothenburg to arrive at an island without cars. An island with boat huts, shoreline meadows and old-fashioned houses. Incredibly close to the metropolis, yet secluded enough to be completely different. Our guest house on Styrsö is open all year round and guests are always given a warm welcome. ... more less
