A good Spa outside of Gothenburg. Nice and big SPA & Wellness facilities. Good restaurant and breakfast. The rooms are good and clean. What I think is the biggest thumb up for this hotel is their quick and good eye for customer service. All interactions with the staff were friendly and they were very service minded. Which I think is not so common in Sweden. So overall a great hotel.

Nice spa, but it's not as quiet as it should be for relaxation, it wasn't the kids but mostly the adults making the most noise. Didn't see staff anywhere in the spa, they could have been around to try and keep the noise down a bit I think. Lunch was ok, removed some stars due to there was nothing for kids foods and for some reason they expected my son to eat the same as the adults, not a good system, was shown to a dirty table that we then found out wasn't even empty the people had gone to get coffee, Bad planning, otherwise the waiting staff were very friendly.
