The Hotel

We offer 44 tastefully and individually decorated rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, TV and free Wi-Fi. 11 of our rooms are family rooms, which accommodate up to four people per room. We also have a Deluxe-room, which we prefer to call our "suite”.

This room is large, has a big lovely bed, a sitting group, big TV-screen, and in the spacious bathroom there is a steam-shower. The room has its own veranda, and is perfect if you want to treat yourself a little extra. The Staff of Lumber & Karle want every visit here to be a memorable one!

Conferences - Perhaps your company’s most important investment?

A conference is a big investment for your company. And probably one of the components that keep the business growing and the staff motivated to give that little extra. So why don't give them something extra?

We believe in exceeding your expectations in delivering the best conference according to your spec. Like a tailor, we will make sure your conference is just the way you want it. Give us a call on (+46) 512-709 00 or drop us a line to to discuss your requirements further.
