My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights at the end of April. The hotel is quite new, having opened in 2009 and is very stylishly decorated as one would expect in Sweden. Being situated by the river near to the old town the location is very convenient for shops and restaurants and there are plenty of parking spaces available in front of the hotel. Our room, although small by English standards, was very comfortable and well equipped plus we had a balcony overlooking the river that was nice to sit out on when the sun was shining. There was a little traffic noise from the nearby bridge but nothing excessive.
The hotel Restaurant has a limited, fixed menu but the food is of a very high standard indeed. We ate there twice and enjoyed the food on both occasions. Both the cooking and presentation of the food was excellent. They also have a good wine list and the staff seemed to be very knowledgeable about the wines they have. The restaurant is also used for serving breakfast, which is a self-service buffet of typical Swedish food – and very good it is too.
There is also a riverside terrace at the back of the hotel where one can sit and enjoy a drink before dinner. I was told that it gets very busy in the summer but while we were there it was only open for one day when the weather turned really nice.
One of the most notable things about the hotel has to be the staff. They were all young, enthusiastic, efficient and, without exception, incredibly friendly but without being intrusive. We were given plenty of helpful advice about places to go and things to see and nothing ever seemed to be too much trouble. The Åtellet is not a cheap hotel to stay at but it’s well run, charming and very comfortable and I would certainly stay there again if I come back to Norrtälje.
