Convenient and highly professional staff. Evening meal not only well prepared but adds value to the travel budget that is rarely parallel. The reception staff are very helpful from local info to luggage. Excellent breakfast selection of food, coffee, and tea.

We left thinking we should have gone elsewhere because: - Vaxjo is a functional semi-industrial town and regional centre with a pedestrianised centre of 1960s concrete buildings. -...

The hotel is a great location, close to the train station. Rooms are great, and meals, like everyone Clarion we've been in in Sweden so far, are excellent. A great value. The staff couldn't be friendlier.
