We arrived by car and the hotel was easy to find thanks to the specific driving directions that we found in advance on the hotel’s web page. We didn’t use the hotel’s parking garage as there was a cheaper public parking area just opposite the hotel, which cost 100 SEK/day. When we arrived around lunch time our room was not ready so we left our luggage in the hotel’s storage room for a few hours. When we came back to check in the receptionist was nice and explained to us about the hotel, for example regarding the spa area and the gym. There was coffee, tea and biscuits in the lounge beside the reception, which was free for hotel guests. We asked about the menu in the Ekobar (the restaurant on the top floor) as we hadn’t found that menu on their web page and wondered if we could have dinner there or if they only served light snacks, but the receptionist wasn’t sure. A short while after we came up to our room, the receptionist knocked on the door and gave us a menu for the Ekobar that she had found. That was very helpful and we appreciated the service.
The room was quite large and in addition to the desk there was also a sofa with a small table. The beds were quite comfortable, but the quilt was too thick and warm as the room was quite warm. The bathroom had a bathtub with a shower and a proper sliding partition wall to prevent the water from splashing on the floor. There was a large area beside the wash basin to put your things on. Wifi worked well.
The gym was very small with only a few multifunction strength training machines, which I didn’t find very good, and there were also a few cardio machines. Beside the gym there was a pool but it was very small. After walking through the changing rooms there was a spa area with a warm Jacuzzi, a sauna and a small relax area with a few chairs and this spa area was nice despite the small size.
We had dinner one evening in the restaurant on the ground floor, the Black Rock Grill, where we had a great meal (I have written a separate review on that). The other evening we had dinner in the Ekobar on the top floor, where there was seating both indoors and outdoors on a narrow balcony. It was more casual than the restaurant on the ground floor, but the food was good.
The breakfast buffet was very good, although the buffet area felt a bit crowded at moments when there were a lot of people. There was good bread and also homemade crisp bread (one of the staff mentioned it was homemade), cold cut meat, different types of cheese, marmalade, vegetables, fresh fruit, juice, yoghurt, cereal, nuts and even cakes and croissants. There was also a hot section with eggs, bacon and pancakes with jam and nutella. less
