Countryside Hotels Sweden

Countryside Hotels Sweden

The hotels are all individual - from tastefully renovated manor houses and centuries-old inns to elegant resort hotels set in magnificent grounds and genuine mountain lodges. What the hotels have in common is the warmth of their hospitality, excellent service, a welcoming atmosphere and high standards in everything they do - including food. Half of the hotel restaurants are listed among the top places to dine in the whole of Sweden.

Each of the hotels is, in a way, a tourist attraction in its own right. And each offers plenty of activities for young and old alike - tennis, golf, windsurfing, canoeing, sailing, fishing, hunting, walking, cycling, riding, river-rafting, rowing and folklore. Countryside Hotels also welcome children and offer advantageous discounts. The hotels have been chosen according to strict criteria and must achieve high standards to be admitted to the group. Our emblem has become synonymous with symbol of quality
