... in the group but we all had one thing in common, not much working knowledge of Swedish...so here we go!
As is the Swedish custom, we were given a number and found a seat to wait our turn. Fairly quickly #12 was called and I approached a friendly looking woman who took my information.

Cannot say a bad word about this hotel. The breakfast was great, the muesli with fresh berries and the yummy boiled eggs were a great start to each day! The shared bathrooms were great, each time we used them they were always all free and clean.
