Overview

Romantic coverted manor house on the banks of Sweden's Lake Mälaren, with a locavore restaurant and outdoor activities galore

The Lowdown

Staying in this 38-room boutique hotel is like being a guest at an estate for a weekend—borrow a bicycle and ride around the lake, lounge by the bar in the 1679 Manor House, gossip about the other guests while sinking into a grand antique bed. But instead of eating whatever your hostess serves, there’s a decadent spread of fanciful pastries, tasting menu dinners of seasonal, local fare and elegant takes on hearty country breakfasts. Fresh off a renovation, there’s a whimsical Downtown Abbey-meets-Alice in Wonderland design with gilded headboards and Louis IX chairs aside furry lampshades.

In the Area

The local train station is a 7-minute cab ride away, and, from there it’s an 18 minute ride to Stockholm. But it’s tempting to ignore the lovely capital altogether and stay on the property, biking, hiking the lake, fishing, swimming, water-skiing, running or, come winter, cross-country skiing. If you can manage to drag yourself away from “home,” a short drive from the property you’ll find the Viksjo Golf Club for putting, and the Stockholm Quality Outlet Barkarby, for shopping.

Unexpected surprise
Reviewed 1 month ago

I ha to go to Stockholm in a rush for work. Everything was fully booked so quite unexpected I ended up at this hidden gem.
Staff is lovely and wellcoming. Rooms are nicely designed and very clean. Beds are comfortable.
Restaurant is very good both regarding food and wines. Close to a Guide Michelin star.

I will be happy to return and recommend all a visit.

Quick weekend getaway!
Reviewed 4 months ago

My husband and I stayed here for one night just for a quick birthday getaway & we left more than happy. Can’t remember how I found out about this place but I’m glad I did. The main building decor is gorgeous & the food from the restaurant was definitely the highlight for us. We came not knowing what to expect but were very impressed. There was nothing particularly special about the room but it was very clean which is always appreciated. Could’ve done with a firmer mattress but that’s a personal preference.
We would happily return, especially in the summer to experience the view by the water when everything is green.

Perfect romantic getaway
Reviewed 4 months ago

This hotel is perfect for a romantic stay or for friends who want to upgrade their gathering with good food and a chic environment.
The breakfast was one of the best I've ever had, not to mention the dinner which was delicious. We also had the aperitive package on arrival that was very good and relaxing.
Perfect during wintertime when you want to enjoy the company of one another in a cosy and beautiful quiet place (children under 12 are not allowed and wouldn't fit in the environment.).
