The setting in the Swedish countryside by the Baltic Sea is stunning. Long walks or bike rides in the area are highly recommended. The rooms in the hotel were comfortable, clean and spacious. The provided breakfast is excellent. Our room was very comfortable, but could get stuffy on warm days. The food was very good, but the restaurant, again, could get overly warm and stuffy and had too many bugs flying around. Noisy guests disturbed our sleep more than once.
We were so excited to stay in this historic hotel, however when we arrived, our reservation through Booking.com did not go through and the hotel was fully booked. They were going to put us up in the Continental hotel, but the other guest who had the last room opted to stay in the Continental instead. The room was an adorable suite and very clean and comfortable. Once the room situation was worked out, we couldn't be happier with our stay here. There is even a pub next door with great ambiance and the town of Ystad is beautiful to walk around at night!
Historic interest of building & setting - with sympathetic interior decor & furnishing. Location excellent in heart of the medieval town. Quiet. Enchanting courtyard view. Friendly, conversational manager. Excellent breakfast choices. Would have appreciated facilities for making hot drinks, and a plug in the en-suite basin
Great atmosphere in an old and very tastefully preserved historic city building. .
Family atmosphere, low-key and quiet, helpful owner and staff, centrally located, close to ferry, train and bus terminals, good breakfast
we were given a free extra breakfast, coming from the ferry at 07.00 hrs
The hotel was easy to find and central. Free parking was available in a nearby private car park with separate spaces for the hotel. The Sekelgarden hotel was a beautiful old building with plenty of character and was next door to the old Brewery, now a restaurant, with very good food.
Large room with upgraded bath. Convenient location in town. Quiet room. Very substandard buffet breakfast compared with other hotels we have stayed at in Scandinavia.
The hotel is situated in a couple of historic buildings connected by a beautifully tranquil courtyard. Our room was spacious and tastefully decorated. Breakfast (a great variety on offer) was served in a lovely suite of rooms. Ystad is a very pleasant town with a good selection of places to eat and shop. It also served as a great base for exploring the Skane region. The Tourist Office has some good material including a great booklet about the various Wallander TV series and the locations used. We'd recommend an evening walk along the shores of the Baltic - very tranquil! Instead of a proper double bed we had two single beds pushed together, with single duvets. From our subsequent experience elsewhere this is typical in Scandinavia but I felt it underminedthe hotel's reputation as a romantic hotspot!!
Homely, interesting and had a slightly bohemian feel about it. Lack of secure parking.
Superb location and charming 'olde worlde' hotel with rooms of character. Very comfortable and the height of convenience is a good 'brewery' next door the Bryggeriet which serves excellent food and beer brewed on the premises.
The rooms are completely new - it's a refurbished old farm, with excellent and modern facilities.
very lovely place
Magnus, the owner, was very attentive and did all he could to make our stay perfect. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very well appointed. Breakfast was excellent with homemade preserves and fruit juices. He was also helpful in suggesting places to visit locally that were not necessarily on the tourist trail but were well worth seeing. No
the lovely way people take care of the place. The owner are friendly and the place is exactly what you expect from a countryside B&B.
Friendly and kind staff. Very nice rooms. Lovely location in the country.
Great experience: extremely friendly and helpful hosts prepared to devote time to their guests - we learnt a lot about the local area and Sweden in general from them, and it greatly enhanced our stay there. The location is very pleasant and peaceful, and very convenient as a base for touring southern Sweden. Highly recommended.
Quiet countryside location, friendly owners and spacious comfortable suite. Kitchen facilities good.
Our host and hostess were just wonderful! They really made us feel welcome. The apartment was well equipped, the fridge fully stocked for breakfast. Warm bread rolls in the morning...in the company of two big and friendly dogs;))
The best was talking to the owner and exchanging experiences of life.
We enjoyed most the warm welcome of Gabbi. She gave us the feeling of coming home. It will be for sure not the last stay for us at Gabbi.
A very cosy hotel with friendly host. I very nice atmosfere. No, nothing.
our best hotel due our 2 weeks sweden stay, perfect location in country side, you need a car to go there, the owners are wonderfull none
