Recent guest reviews
Cosy hotel with nice, spacy rooms. Room (superior) was clean and there was cleaning every day. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was great! A lot of different kinds of food to start your day with. There was also possibility to get a late night snack like hamburgers. For sure we'll be back next year at the time of Sweden Rock!
2 minutes walks from the the market. Close do another big markets in that area, but still little outside the city. Quiet, clean rooms, good WiFi connection with good breakfast is all You need for short stay.
We stayed one night in this hotel during our two weeks in Sweden and it was a very disappointing stay. Our room was for three people and it was very dated, which was in extreme contrast to the rooms one can see in the photos. The furniture was very used and stained and the curtains in the room were dirty. Our friends had a double room facing the highway and it was much more like what is displayed on the photos. When we entered the room there was only one bed in there. The rest was hidden in a sofa, also an old piece of furniture with torn upholstering, yay. In the end we had to call the hotel's staff, because we could not figure out where were we supposed to sleep and how to open the sofa. All other hotels that we stayed at had all the beds, sofas etc. already opened and prepared for us. On a more positive note: the breakfast is good and the hotel offers free parking to their guest. The room size was ok - large enough to have place to sleep for three people and nothing more. The hotel is loud - on one side there is the highway. We had a room facing the parking, so in theory should be quieter. However there was some sort of generator making random noises day and night - very disturbung. Especially that many hotels in Sweden seem overheated to us and thus ot was impossible to sleep with closed windows. Also, initially there was a very unpleasant stench in the bathroom - however by morning it disappeared. I wouldn't want to stay there again.
Location by the old harbour. Near expo center and city center, charming small town. Good breakfast and snack service other time. Generous public lounge with TV screen. Friendly staff. Sauna and small gym on top floor.
This was the second year staying at this hotel during Sweden Rock Festival. Very good hotel. Staff are very friendly. Rooms are nice and clean. Good Wifi in the hotel. Restaurant is good. Breakfast given each morning and is good. There is a market (COOP) next door if you need to pick up anything. There is a gas station next door as well. Close to town by car it's just a few minutes. About 20 minutes to the Sweden Rock Festival site in Norje. Get a room facing parking to stay cooler, the rooms facing the road get direct sun and get warm.
We stayed here before and were back because of the pleasant previous experience. Again, it was hockey in Mörrum that brought us here. Well, 2 hours after we checked in the tournament was unexpectedly canceled, and when the dust had settled, we decided to just go home. The desk staff at the hotel were very sympathetic and understanding of the situation and refunded our money save for a small fee for booking and cleaning. We were not the only family affected by this unexpected cancellation, and it seems that everyone was treated in exactly the same extremely civilized manner. The hotel probably took a pretty hard financial hit refunding all the affected guests and standing somewhat empty on a weekend. We were extremely appreciative and will definitely be back. And we will continue to tell everyone we can about this fantastic treatment we received.
The best western is a pleasant hotel with a friendly and welcoming staff. Great service and a very pleasant breakfast buffet. The room was really up-to-date and looking sharp. A typical Swedish hotel, and I would stay again if I would come back to Karlshamn.
Nice rooms are equpped in modern design with exactly what we needed for a comfortable stay. Full breakfast buffé gave us all possible choices. Fast free WiFi in rooms worked without problems. We used the free parking which is partly roofed. We used 3-nights stay offer for a very good rate booked on BW own website.
A hockey tournament in nearby Mörrum led to stay in this hotel in nearby Karlshamn to avoid an early morning and a long drive on the day of the tournament. Easy access off the motorway but tucked in behind a StatOil, a bit tricky to find. Especially with the parking lot "behind" the hotel. We were welcomed by signs that said something like "Empty your vehicle or a thief might do it for you" which is a bit breathtaking after a long drive. But the hotel itself was warm and clean and pleasant with a large restaurant. The feeling was of relatively recent renovations. We checked in only to find one of our rooms was unbearably noisy due to a high-pitch squeal coming from the radiator. Apparently, this is a known problem and we were promptly upgraded and relocated. The rooms are small, clean, and efficient. Capsule coffee maker, which was a nice touch. Reasonable TV, excellent beds. No road noise, no noise from other guests -- despite the fact that there was a boisterous Christmas party going on in the lounge maybe 4 rooms down the corridor and on the same floor. We used the restaurant for supper and for breakfast the next day of course, and both meals were very satisfactory. the breakfast buffet was particularly appreciated. All in all, I would both return and recommend this hotel. Although part of a chain, it had a family-run feel to it, and the service we received was well above what we have come to expect.
This hotel is being renovated - some rooms are really nice, some are a little basic. I visited with 2 other colleagues - my room has a new bathroom with heated floor and a nice setup, theirs have basic showers and are not so nice. I think as they renovate it will get better. the food, the bar, the breakfast, are all much nicer than the First Hotel in Karlshamn, and the internet speed is excellent - around 19mbs down, which is great for a hotel.
