It felt like you didn't give a damn about your customers. You have a product that they want, and you're sure to sell it no matter what you present your customers with. The bathrooms were dirty, and in the outdoor ones, paper towel was often missing. It just was very run down and dirty. Many, if not all of the...

People reading reviews of this property should be aware that the reviews on Tripadvisor seems to be a mixture of the hotel, "stuga"/cottage and camping. We stayed at the hotel: A unique hotel with good location close to Astrid Lindgren World, i.e. approx 5 min by car. Good and family friendly food at the restaurant - both breakfast and dinner....

We played minigolf and had...

I can not recommend this run down place on the outskirts of Vimmerby (3-4 km from the City Center and Astrid Lindgrens Värd, which probably is what you came here for). For a so-called "Stuga", which is a small hut (3 x 4 meters), you pay a whooping $145 (SEK 950) per night, more than a standard hotel room in...

Chose this hotel for our visit to Vimmerby since we got a good deal; 2 nights in a family room (4 persons) for 1500 sek. The room had a double bed, sofa bed and a crib and a desk with chair. The hotel in general was OK for being a three star hotel, but it was obvious that they just...
