Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 July 2015

This place has preserved the old Swedish 'pensionat', a hotel with boarding that was verk popular in the fifties (when I was a kid). Staff in the reception make you feel really at home and give you a personal welcome. Rooms probably differ a bit, ours was rather small but quite ok. What is most impressive are the common areas with decoration from the old days, furniture, paintings etc.
We had the fixed five menu dinner which was excellent, pickled herring, salmon soup, cheeses, flank steak and ice cream/strawberries. The local lager beer was perfect.

Room Tip: Away from the main road

We have spent a long weekend at Jarvsobaden for the last 4 years, and each time it is a true pleasure. The hotel is run by a delightful, warm family who ensure that your stay feels homely and relaxed. The rooms are traditional and relatively small, but they are clean, nice beds and soft sheets. Breakfast and dinner are excellent, good quality home cooked food with lots of variety.
We have 3 children and they are free to run around, play in the play rooms or sit and draw in the drawing rooms. Jarvsobaden has this year also added a spa area with Steam and Sauna, large jacuzzi and plunge pools, which the kids and parents loved
Bottom line - Jarvsobaden is a great hotel in a traditional swedish style that delivers

We have been there for my cousin's wedding. The hotel is good with nice decoration and very clean. The staff is very kind and pleasant. I heard that in Summer is better and more crowded. The room was small but everything someone needs was included.

We stayed at Järvsöbaden over parts of the Christmas Holiday and found the place working up to expectations once more. This was the first time to stay there in the wintertime so we used the time between meals to walks in the neighbourhood. The newly built spa department was not ready for visitors yet but will be soon.
The meals are as always very good, especially lunches and dinners and the staff is friendly and helpful.
We will be back again!!!

Room Tip: rooms towards the pond.

This restaurant serves good homemade traditional Swedish food on a long buffet table, with lots of different salads for the first course, bread and butter, and a nicely done main course, meat/poultry/fish with accompanying veggies and potatoes or rice, good sauce.

Dessert is available too, but I'm not usually hungry enough for that as well. I do take the coffee and perhaps a cookie, which are included in the two course option.

You are charged for either two or three courses.

The tables have white tablecloths, candles and a view out over the valley. The guests are either passing through like we are, straight from the slopes, or conference guests. There are often a fair number of kids in the restaurant, and in our 10 or so visits, the children have almost all been well behaved and all of them had attentive parents.

I think the Sunday dinner is frequented by a lot of locals. If I lived there, I'd frequent it too.

The ambience is 50's and the building is older. There are well tended african violets in the window sills and a bird feeder outside the bar window. The staff are mostly friendly middle aged women.
