The Kanalhotellet was a great hotel that lives up to the reviews! The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was excellent, it had everything you need and most rooms had a balcony or porch. The view is excellent, looking over the canal and very close to the lake. The breakfast was very good. It was a little smaller... More

This was my second time visiting Karlsborg. I stayed last year and it was ok. I liked the old world charm. However the breakfast was just ok. I decided to stay across the street at Idas brygga which I wrote a separate review. I arrived late so I stayed at the kanalhotell for one night. It's ok but they need... More

Friendly and jolly staff, good rooms, quiet (low season). The main building is very nice, and the interior well kept. We had an original, two-room cabin just meters away, it was very quiet (low season) and one had a private, small veranda. Having the good breakfast on the glass veranda is a pleasure. Great food.

Lovely family-owned hotel, friendly staff, decent breakfast buffet spread. Surprised to find quite a few English-speaking channels on cable TV. Wifi signal is strong in the room. Basic amenities such as towels and shampoo/body wash are provided. Overall, a good value for money stay.

An interesting if quirky hotel in a lovely setting on the canal. Excellent breakfast. Comfortable room overlooking the canal so plenty to watch as a variety of boats sail past. Friendly helpful staff.

Lovely hotel, very friendly staff, great food "husmanskost" style. It was definitely not the hotels fault that it was raining during our visit but as we were lucky to have rooms towards the canal, we could watch the boats pass by.

We came back for a third visit in lovely June, this time for a family gathering of about 50 relatives celebrating old grandmother. Lovely preparations, efficient service and good traditional Swedish cuisine. We had a long nice evening in the veranda. The following day we went for the adventurous guided tours of the immense fortress nearby. The youths were thrilled.... More

Great weekend for family members, coming from all directions, with tasty "julbord" buffet and kind professional service. Good value for money. Oldfashioned interior, some bric a brac. Lovely dining and breakfast veranda. Good beds. We enjoyed ourselves in the midst of a snow storm!

The best thing I can say about this Hotel is the amazing location on the bank of the canal. I booked directly with the hotel, and had little previous information on facilities. I booked a double room, canal view with a balcony. We were not in the main hotel but in an annexe building. I would have hoped for tea... More
