    We were not able to book table in the brasserie but the restaurant was not up to the standard of the hotel. Dull food, not properly prepared and lacking inventiveness.

    The hotel and its design with all the glass art is really something extra. Breakfast was also of high standard.

    I don't really "get" the purpose behind this hotel.... A luxuary hotel "in the middle of nowhere" but at the centre of Swedish glass artistry and production. The purpose is consequently understandable, but it's expensive glass, glass glass, glass everywhere! In the reception, in the corridors, in the pool area, in the restaurants, in the rooms and in the bar, everything is made of glass.....! Suddenly you get the impression that you are in the ice hotel in the very north of Sweden and everything feels "ice cold" after a while. The curtains could e.g have been in some colours - glass is best "framed" by warm colours - but they are white as snow (or light grey) so you don't notice them and when you "frame" glass with glass, then the glass lose its beauty even if great artistry. The Brasseri is however quite pleasant and has extremely good food, but the restaurant needs a face lift. Boring like a corporate canteen.

    Swimming pools, spa and gym excellent! Worth to spend a whole day in the lovely environment!

    Disappointed with the use of glass around the hotel and shops. I think you could have been much more creative with the use of glass rather than putting cases and statute around. It felt like you just put them there on window because you had no where else to place them 😞

    The restaurant was great and the food! Now the chefs showed creativity!
