Gyllene Uttern is somehow a Swedish institution. Perhaps because everyone and anyone that has driven through Sweden will know where it is. The buildings have been built and re-built over many years and at the moment the main building has a very cosy old style feel to it. The former terrace has been glassed in and now constitutes a dining room. Style wise not really in keeping with the remainder of the building but we forgive them for that as it is clearly more useful to have indoor dining than outdoor dining in Sweden. And the view is fantastic.
The sleeping quarters are in a newer less charming building and are really nothing special.
Dinner was nice and assume breakfast is good too (I had to leave too early to know).
If you stay here, do it for the views and to know that you have been there :-)

I had the chance to stay there and to enjoy dinner in the panoramic restaurant. The food was superb, the service flawless and with exactly the personal touch which you would like without being overdone, and the location really does not need any further explanation!
The crew at the reception was efficient and super-friendly and even helped me out with my missing bag.
The rooms in their annex are ok, the view out of the windows incredibly superb, I guess great for wedding pictures ;-)
In the morning I was told that some refurbishment in the rooms will start soon - and even without that, I am sure to come back again.

Room Tip: Annex named "Andrée" was good for me. All the rooms there have lake-view...

This hotel is something special. Built in the 1930s in a style which I can only describe as "Baronial Hunting Lodge", which gives this magical place such a character, it's difficult not to fall in love with it. Add to that the most fantastic location on the banks of the EU's 2nd largest lake, lake Vattern makes it into a pearl of a place. We had an excellent room in the main building with beautiful lake views, well furnished and decorated with an ultra modern bathroom. The restaurant, whilst a little on the expensive side, was nothing short of perfection. Again beautiful lake views, and one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. Will find it hard to resist going here again.

Glorious views over Lake Vattern. Convenient location if driving from Denmark or South Sweden to Stockholm fir example. Very friendly staff and we had pleasant room and quite OK bathroom facilities in Annex. Quiet night and plenty of parking.
Terrace restaurant and verandah also provide fine views.
Dinner was excellent but pricey (as usual in Sweden) especially wine. Various local food specialities well worth trying.

Room Tip: Annex with views to West
