We had the most wonderful weekend in these fantastic surroundings.
Large, quiet room - a little old- but that is ok in an old castle.
The meals were all extraordinary good, combined with good interesting wines, we wouldn't have chosen ourselves.
Remember to take your time to take a tour of the castle and the church. And do not forget the park and the lake.
Take at bike (or your car) to Kjuge Kulla a few km' to the south, it is great.

Room Tip: Spend a few kr's more, and sleep in the castle

Didn't stay for the night, but enjoyed a Swedish "Julbord" or Christmas dinner. This is a buffet style meal with a host of excellent dishes, the emphasis being on wild game. The quality, quantity and bredth of selection were outstanding - both the cold dishes (meat and fish) which included included smoken wild boar sausage and the warm dishes with venison and elk. The dessert was a seasonal traditional creamy rice pudding. The dining rooms on the second floor made a major contribution to the historic and cosy atmosphere with candlelit tables and warm chandeliers. Service was excellent. The meal was finished off with an excellent selection of traditional Christmas sweets and first class chocolates. Being a vegetarian I was not able to enjoy the full menu and the vegetarian dish arranged at very short notice was nothing special (no criticism, my own fault for not ordering in advance!) I would thoroughly recommend this julbord to both fellow Swedes and foreign visitors - an authentic Swedish Christmas happening :)

Room Tip: We didn't stay the night, but I have seen many of the rooms. Those in the castle building itself...

The castle is strategically built between 2 lakes by monks in the 13th century. Now a nice hotel where everything lived up to expectations. One would have expected more flowers in the gardens in a place like this but there are most trees and lawns, all nice kept. Rooms were fresh and cosy, we stayed in a house called "Humlan" (it was much cheaper) and not in the actual castle. Dinner was good (my fish was a little on the dry side but I should have known better than to order mountain fish in the south of Sweden). Dessert with raspberry mousse and liquorice sauce was wonderful. Overall a nice experience which I wouldn't hesitate to repeat.

We just got back from the very best week at Backaskog castle - our daughter was married in its wonderful chapel - most guests travelled far and stayed there with us. The food was amazing - breakfast a real treat - the rooms clean and comfortable - the use of the bikes, canoes, sauna and hot tubs were very appreciated-but their biggest asset is their employees. They went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. It was our second visit-one in the winter and gorgeous-this in the spring and we hope to get back again some summer/fall.

Room Tip: We found the rooms attached to the main castle were easier to enter - no stairs - the suite we had w...

Clean, very friendly staff and well kept buildings in beautiful Skåne! Get the castlepackage, with 3 or 4 meal menu. Breakfast is fantastic!
