    ry peaceful location.

    Our second stay in the hotel and our room was as good as last time. We stayed in the old prison, which is very good value for money. The fridge in the room is very useful. There was a large kitchen on our floor for visitors use and there was a laundry that could be used in the evening. Just a shame that the lovely restaurant had closed, despite the pictures that are still on the website. Food is now served in the main hotel in a bar type restaurant. Choice of menu items was not as good and neither was the service. Breakfast is very good. Plenty of choice, although when we came down later one day small groups came in to use it like a meeting room. The location of the hotel is very good and we would use it again.

    The location was quiet and the hotel room was wonderfully comfortable. The restaurant closed early on Sunday, which was a bit unfortunate since we came back late from town and were hungry.

    The property is lovely, right on the water. The sunsets are beautiful and the rooms are spacious and well cared for. My only complaint is that the exterior door nearest out room wouldn’t open from inside or outside. The front desk said this happened regularly, but I felt it was a safety issue.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The view from the hotel windows of the working harbour is unique and the area the hotel is in, although close to industry is actually very quiet. The only minor negatives was the lack of eating choices in the area with the hotel restaurant rather overpriced for what it was. The other is that Europeans don't get air conditioning and the room was quite warm in the late afternoons. There is air con but it is centrally controlled meaning no room thermostats. But because the hotel is close to the water and the windows can be opened(see comment about Europeans not understanding air con) it wasn't really a problem. I will definitely stay here again if I return to Gothenburg.

    Excellent and efficient receptionist in Frederick who was both very helpful and polite. The room was original and recently rennovated, an excellent power shower too. Let down by the service at supper which bordered on the comic and was outrageously bad.

    Bummer Hotel

    A week after staying at this property we are still angry - very poor service from the Staff. When we arrived, there was a problem with room access - an electronics issue. These things happen, but it is how the staff deal with it that makes the difference. Clearly these Staff were not trained. We were told to sit and wait. After 90 minutes of waiting, we queried what was going on? Perhaps a free drink from the bar? Not possible. But we'll discount your room. Then, after 2 hours, we were given access to another room. Thank you, why did it take so long? The room space was wasted - over 3 levels with two stairs. Upstairs was only the bedroom, midlevel was sitting and TV and bottom was entry and micro bathroom - see photo. Not sure what is around the hotel, our planned walk was spent sitting in the hotel foyer, and after we bought a drink whilst waiting, we couldn't drive anywhere. When we went for dinner to the restaurant, we couldn't get in. When we went to Reception, we were told the restaurant was booked for the night but the bar restaurant was open with a full menu. Very limited options but our food choice was okay. When we checked out, because we had pre-paid, they couldn't discount and couldn't discount our meal or our drinks. Yeah right! But a free coffee and cakes. Not good enough, book somewhere else!!!

    Nice stay

    Nice hotel in a great environment. Only downside was small portions at great expense in the restaurant.
