The homepage of this hotel shows beautiful luxury rooms, so the price (1250 SEK - ~$120) seems high but reasonable. We booked a double room to sleep over after a wedding party at the same hotel.
The first surprize came directly after the check-in. The room was not at all as fancy as at the pictures, but besides that it had only one single bed. When we complained at the reception, they said that the couch available in the room counts as the second bed and will be prepaired in the evening. The staff claimed they didn't have enough double rooms and this is the hotel policy to use these rooms when they run out of doubles. Not what we expected from a romantic get-away, but we did not have so much time to argue because the wedding ceremony was just about to start and we had to change clothes somewhere.
At 12.00 in the evening the sofa was still not prepaired and all the staff at the reception was gone, so we had to ask people in the kitchen to make the extra bed. The beds were owful to sleep on, but we were more lucky than the other couple that discovered at 3am that their bed linnen were not changed after the previous guests...
Arguing at the reception the day after did not help us - they just couldn't understand why we were so unhappy with this low-budget room that we paid full proce for. When we arrived at home we looked at the homepage again and discovered that there is a hostel at the same place with much cheaper rooms than the hotel rooms. Guess what we saw on the hostel pictures? Our so called double hotell room that we had paid 1250 SEK for. Calling the owner and arhguing again didn't help this time either. She clamed that they usually use the hostel rooms when the hotel rooms are fully booked and no-one has ever complained before, so there must be something wrong with us.
We payed less than that per night in the central Rome, on Orchid street in Singapour, in Los Angeles, central Sydney, Barcelona and many other places and everywhere we got reasonably styled room with acceptable beds, air conditioner and much better service. The hotel owners have to get a reality check.
The minute you come here you feel "yes!" as you are cheered up by the sheer existance of the yellow "Villa Söderåsen" in the sun. Checking in is done at the inn below, which gives some nice surprises. One is that even though you still have to clean your room when you leave, you don't have to feel a complete failure if you miss something as they let the inn's hotel cleaning lady check the rooms when you have checked out. The other is that if you order breakfast at the hostel, it is served in the inn's old stable tack room restaurant so you feel as if you have paid more than you have. The hostel itself is inspiring because of its beauty. Rooms are often spacious and with unusual 20s furniture saved from older times, such as bedside tables, chests of drawers and the like. There are also tiny, tiny TV sets in each room. In the kitchen, you have to mark your food with your departure date as it is cleaned every day (which is also not the case in most other places where things can walk out by themselves after a while!). Beds are comfy and as an extra bonus, the place also houses Röstånga tourist information with loads of info on the National Park and north west Skåne in general. Finally, one of the entrances to the National Park is just beside the hostel.
Daily cleaning of common spaces. Beautifully furnished.
