Great b&b , the island experience was fun. Delightful staff. Real fun experience.
Take an evening picnic over and picnic outside the fortress overlooking the water, loads cheaper than eating in Vaxholm.
One member of our group walked with walking stick, it was quite a walk through the fortress to the B & B and pulling bags along so maybe not ideal for those with mobility problems .
Cost of morning /evening taxi was 200 krona so quite pricey , try and share.
I had a very good stay at the hotel. The rooms very clean and the service was excellent. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The buffet breakfast which is served till 10.00 am, was lovely, not very elaborate, has fantastic homemade jams to go with the toast. The offer of tea, coffee and fruit anytime of the day is a lovely touch to make guests feel welcome. The building itself is very charming and has a beautiful old church right behind it.
I was given an upgrade to a very recently renovated double room on the ground floor which connects through the dining room. The room was excellent except for the fact that I could hear the people in the next room talking, though to be fair, I could not make out what they were saying.

Let's start with the hotel staff, very polite, professional and friendly. The hotel was clean, up to date with today's standards and very welcoming. The room was great, layout, facilities, comfort it was all you needed and more!
I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It was for business
Middle of nowhere so it took a little while longer to get to the office.
Gym was small but I managed my daily exercise.
Food was superb however, as was the beers too, hotel stall were friendly and the other guests were civilized !
We arrived quite late to the hotel. Upon our arrival we were provided a key to our room and first left to obtain our belonging from our car. Once we got back to the door to get in, it seemed no one was at the desk and the door was locked. It was cold and we had to knock like crazy to have someone answer. We asked to use the elevator and the elevator had a cart with some type of liquid on it in the middle of the very small lift. So we had to take the stairs to our 2nd floor room. That was our only hiccup. Our room was wonderful with a great view of the lake. It had a seating area, generous size bathroom and the bedroom was large enough to walk around the bed and use the space adequately. The breakfast was nice and tasty. Offering cereal, eggs, meats, cheeses, breads, jams and drinks. The staff was helpful. The hotel was located in the town of Sigtuna, which was the first town in Sweden. (I had no idea when I booked the hotel, of the town's significance.) The massage was incredibly expensive, $211.00 for an 80 minute Swedish massage. Parking was easy and provided enough spots for everyone. Luckily, I am an LMT and can write it off, but my God that is expensive. The area was safe and quaint. I'd stay at this hotel again.
