Stay on the lakeside
We really can’t repeat it often enough: Dalsland is Sweden’s most lake-rich region. 11 % of the province’s surface is covered by water. This is obvious of course when it comes to accommodation as there is no problem to find a hotel room with a lake view.
The beauty of our hotels here in Dalsland is that they are a little smaller, a little more personal and that most are located on the lakeside.

A 100-year old grain silo that has been transformed into a modern hotel where you stay in the old silo compartments. The rooms are cleverly nestled into the original structures and equipped to contemporary standards, although you may still find the odd grain of wheat or two hiding in between the planks! French balconies let in the light and offer views out over the water. All of the rooms are fitted out as apartments, with four beds, a bathroom, kitchen and loft.
