I love peace and quiet and even though it so happened that I was on a business trip when visiting Gotland, this hotel was a real treat! The service was wonderful, the staff was really helpful and they also managed to be as un-imposing as possible, not bothering me at all.
I asked for a toothpaste and some other basic essentials (most of them are free, as instructed on a leaflet in the room) and the staff at the counter was very helpful to get them for me.
I really loved that they had detailed instructions in the room on the table with everything you needed to know about the hotel, where to get what, the prices, the rules - just everything, it was very convenient!
The lobby was also very original, interesting glass chess games, a small library, very very homey!
Loved the food, very nice and relaxing atmosphere in the dining room with good calm music.
I was there in March and as I was told it wouldn't be as quiet during the summer, however I was okay with it, I love peace an quiet.
The hotel is located right near the old castle wall, very close to all essential places you would want to visit, right near the bay also.
It was a little odd to get used to the smell of the water in the shower, I believe they treat their sea water for things like these, so it smelt like the sea a little and my hair would weave more than usual, but it was okay, even interesting, to feel the individuality of the place.
I LOVED the warm floor in the bathroom - they have heating installed in their floor there and you can regulate the heat. It was genuinely wonderful.
Free wifi and all. What more would you want?
Overall, it was a great experience, very romantic (for a business trip)! If I ever do manage to come back there, I'd love to visit it with my girlfriend! less
