We are a three star hotel with a Superior classification from Visita, a Swedish organisation for the hospitality sector. Our facilities with a total of 60 rooms are located in a quiet and beautiful area in the centre of Markaryd, Småland. Most of the rooms offer stunning views of glistening Lake Byasjön.
