    Floor in shower looked a little old but everything worked great - that’s a very minor criticism and we would definitely stay there again.

    Good-sized room. Able to park close by to unload. Good choice at breakfast and included in price. Very friendly staff.

    The room high in the tower had great views.

    The location-it's on a busy retail park. The parking area didn't feel secure for my motorcycle. When I asked about it, I was told that secure parking was over £10 extra, reinforcing my concern that the 'ordinary' parking wasn't secure. And the room price quoted at check-in was over £10 more than I'd booked it for-it took 15 minutes to persuade the unhelpful receptionist to give me the room key at the price I'd booked. Then another debate at checkout, as the computer hadn't been updated, apparently.

    The room high in the tower had great views. It was quite large and was clean. Everything worked, including the lifts. It was comfortable. I liked it and it met my needs and expectations.

    The air conditioner in the room was not very effective. Only after sunset the room was cool enough.

    Great location when driving cross the coutry. Hotel has just great room for us (2 adults, 7 and 9 yr kids). Very nice breakfast. Locked rack for car with only small extra fee (Very welcome when has lot of stuff on unlocked roofrack). Nice addition was fuel station on same building including near midnight open shop to get hoddogs and candy when kids has already sleep. Also very short drive from E4 highway. I will use this hotel in our next similar trip.

    There was no "gravlax sås" for the salmon during breakfast! ;-) I always thought it's "a must" in every Swedish hotel.

    A very good place for a short stay. Located just by the highway, with a huge parking lot (with a gas station next to the hotel). The room was quite small but clean and comfortable (with a very nice little window between the bedroom and the bathroom). We really enjoyed the breakfast. Tea/coffee available 24h in the lobby. WiFi was working fine. Perfect for a one-night stay.

    Extremely noisy room. On the 10th floor. The noise probably came from some ventilation equipment above. The result was a "standing wave" phenomenon in the room, in the middle you could hear a faind hum, but in the corners of the room the noise was deafening. I had to move the bed to the middle of the room, but I did not sleep very well.

    VEry conviniently place in the suburbs of Jönköping, along the E4, Priceworthy but very sterile.
