Excellent location in the middle of the town and harbour. My room was spacious with nice views, good furniture and a standard bathroom with shower. The restaurant was not very exciting, we had both lunch, dinner and breakfast and none of these meals were worth remembering. Good bar/night-club which was very lively when we visited.

We stayed one night at Laholmen and the only good thing about the hotel was the view and location of the place. Strömstad is not a place I would visit again, and if I had to - I would not stay at this hotel.

The whole place is pretty worn down, it should have been rehabilitated a few years ago. Our room had wooden floors, worn down for years - a bathroom that was small and not very good. The bed was not that good, and we had a few drinks in the restaurant - and the waiter did not give us any attention even though there were not that many visitors eating or drinking at the time.

Besides being a worn down hotel, what I was most irritated by is that we forgot some clothes - and it took them three weeks to get them returned to us.

Stay at Quality in Strömstad instead!

This hotel has a fantastic location with fjord views on three sides. The hotel is clean, the staff friendly (when to be found), the rates reasonable and the rooms quite large although the decore is a bit dated.

I was a little disappointed with the breakfast buffet which was more limited than a normal Scandinavian breakfast - particularly the lack of choice when it came to types of bread. The lunch buffet does not have a large selection, but everything tasted very nice. Dinner was excellent.

If you are in Stromstad, it is definately not a bad place to stay. The hotel is located on the seafront smack bang in the town centre. Some of the rooms have balconies, so it might be an idea to ask for one of those rooms if you are there during the summer.

We needed hotel in Stromstad at the beginning and end of our holiday. We enjoyed our stay and tried to book again but it was full. Eventually found accommodation for £40 which showed how expensive it was here! Nice beakfast, comfortable room with lovely view. Great bathroom/shower!

Spent an weekend at this hotel in July.

We had a room with tiny balcony on the upper floor in the annex. The room was very clean but small. The balcony was tiny, barely room for 2 chairs and a table - you had to rearrange the chairs to get in/out to the room. The beds were good.

The breakfast was what you can expect from a swedish middle class hotel - nothing fancy. But the logistics weren't really thought through. It might be organized good for a normal weekend but when the hotel is fully booked the amount of people made it a nightmare.

If you are arriving by car - don't count on getting a parking space.

Conclusion: Overpriced but what can one expect in the peaktime of summer.The personnel were friendly and helping. Location: fantastic
