Ignore the immediate location. We liked this hotel. The staff was friendly, rooms nice and breakfast fantastic, lasting to 12 noon. There is a bar and food at the reception desk.

We headed on, across the bridge and to the bus station. We had bus tickets, not train tickets for Göteborg, three hours versus seven hours but as we found yesterday, second class trains …
While our hosts were busy doing their usual work, they suggested we visit a city that they especially enjoy and had lived in a few years ago. So with 3 days to fill in before Dave's big graduation ball next Sat, we hopped on a 'Bus4U' bus and enjoyed a very comfortable 3 hours riding on the top of a double decker bus! With wide leather seats, free wifi and smooth Swedish roads, the time slipped away. This company was set-up to offer an alternative to the state ...
