    • Couple

      Good location, good breakfast, interesting building.

      Dirty in the room (an empty bottle and an old newspaper under the bed, a thick layer of dust on the mirror in the bathroom, someone else's hair in the bathtub)! Only one towel in a double room. At high occupancy lagging with breakfast (lack of fresh bread, lack of clean tables). Unpleasant and gloomy hotel staff.

    • Older travelers

      Excellent breakfast.

      Parking was very limited which made is very difficult for older seniors. I had to park about 3 blocks from the hotel.

    • Single

      The hotel is split across two buildings, the second accessible via the basement of the main building (with reception and restaurant). There was an odd smell in that basement link between the two buildings, which was distinctly off-putting when going for a meal in the main building. Also the restaurant didn't operate on Sunday evening, but I saw no prior warning about this.

      The location is excellent a short walk from the centre of Sunsvall. The male member of staff on reception was warm and friendly and helped me with the gym by becomming a member. The breakfast was very nice and I was delighted to find gluten free bread being offered. My Swedish is very bad so was happy to find English speaking staff (to an excellent standard).

      The stay was ok. I was very dissapointed with my room. The bathroom door looked like it was sprayed with vomit/something. Not clean. The toilet also was not clean & had hairs in the bowl. The clock in my room did not work. I thought the reception staff (female) could of been a little more helpful and friendly on some occasions. For example I had to ask where the gym was located (female reception staff) after she arranged a pass and there was no indication of when it was open only times for sauna and pool. I found booking in too rushed and not enough consideration given that I was English and things such as breakfast/ gym opening times would be useful to have in the room.

      Very talented people in the reception and quick service. Lovely room with good bed at a reasonable price.

      A little noise from the courtyard (Kitchen staff), but disappeared at midnight.

      Very nice gym. Good food and nice staff.

      It was not 100% clean at the room.

      Great breakfast.

      Very unclean and worn-out room. Ingrained smell of zigarette.

      Location

      When I go into the room, the floor was not cleaned uncomfortably. I complained the staff (guy) and he said I will have the room cleaned soon. After I came back in the evening, it wasn't. Rude !!! Uncomfortable !!! I won't recommend.

    • Family with children
      6.6

      Very nice staff. Very close to the city center. Good but not excellent hotel.

      The hotel needs to be renovated and rooms need to be a bit cleaner. It is close to the centre of the city but next to a busy road. The hotel is fine but probably could be a bit better for 4 stars. The breakfast food begins to be removed too sharply at the time when it is supposed to finish.

    • Group of friends
      9.2

      Good breakfast; large, clean and nice decorated room; big tv on the wall

      Small garage and difficult parking when bigger cars are already parked in there

    • Family with children
      7.0

      We've booked a family room (2 double rooms interconnected). They tried to give us 1 doble room + 2 extra beds (and the room was very small). I've to show my confirmation to the receptionist to have a second room, but it was far from the other!
