Mosseberg Kurorten Sweden hotel review

If you are planning a trip to Sweden, most likely you will be visiting the big cities. If you want to venture into the countryside, consider a stay in the spa town of Mosseberg. The Swedish spa hotel Mosseberg Kurorten is located in the village of Falköping, Sweden. Located in Västra Götaland County, Sweden, most everyone speaks English here. Read my Mosseberg Kurorten Sweden hotel review to learn what to expect.

Mosseberg Kurorten hotel exterior has a small pond in front of the 3-story hotel. A three-story rotunda anchors the glass walkway to the reception and spa entrance. A bronze dome is on top of the beige and glass rotunda.

What makes Mosseberg Kurorten hotel in Sweden unique?

The 3-story boutique hotel is composed of two historic buildings. Originally established in 1867, Mosseberg Kurorten was, unfortunately, destroyed by fire. The 4-star hotel moved to its current location in Falköping in 1907 and remains a historic spa hotel.

Staying at Mösseberg hotel in Sweden reminded me of the grand hotels like Timberline Lodge and Crater Lake Lodge in Oregon. The spa hotel seemed much larger than its 75 hotel rooms. Perhaps that’s due to the large atrium, the hotel’s meeting rooms and the spa area.

Green plants drape over the hotel walls in the 3-story Mosseberg Kurorten atrium. Six teak wood dining tables are covered with a white cloth canopy in the private meeting area of the hotel. Beyond the three-story wall of glass at the end of the hotel is the brass rotunda reflecting through the glass.

The hotel reception area is not grand, but looking up to the atrium, one gets a feeling of its grandeur and size. Unlike arriving in our Stockholm, Sweden hotel we immediately got the spa town vibe.

What are the hotel rooms like at Mosseberg Kurorten?

With 73 rooms and 2 suites, room choices range from single, to double rooms and suites. We had booked a king spa room. However, our balcony was being painted and we were offered a queen room instead. Unlike in the United States, hotel room categories are single or double and a move to a queen bed was not considered a down-grade.

Mosseberg Kurorten double room with white duvet, soft gray blanket and 2 matching gray pillows. Two white, cotton spa robes are on the bed. Large glass picture windows and a glass and wood door lead to the hotel balcony.

Our corner room, #230, was located on the second floor of Mosseberg Kurorten. Our hotel room had a nice sized balcony with 2 wooden chairs. We loved the high ceilings and large glass windows in our room. The door to the balcony offered a consistent flow of fresh air in our room throughout the day.

 All hotel rooms overlook Mösseberg Park with the rooms reflecting the original, classic style. Our room included a walk-in shower with Coastal Natural Cosmetics shampoo and conditioner. We had a flat screen tv and a small, white desk with chair, below the television. To the left of the desk were two red and beige chairs with a floor reading lamp. A large closet held an ironing board, iron and small hair dryer.

Suites have robes and slippers. This Mosseberg Kurorten Sweden hotel review would rate higher for me, personally, if all hotel rooms included robes and slippers.

Dining options at Mosseberg Kurorten in Sweden

Arvid’s Restaurant and Bar is the hotel restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Like our Nordic breakfast at Hotel Kong Arthur, the breakfast buffet at Mösseberg had a bountiful selection of food options.

We opted to have dinner at Arvid’s Restaurant upon our arrival at Mosseberg Kurorten hotel. I ordered the veal in a red wine sauce with tri-colored, roasted baby carrots, roasted cherry tomatoes and scalloped potatoes. My husband ordered chicken Caesar salad and was surprised to find cherry tomatoes in his salad and no hint of anchovy. None the less, the meal was very good, followed by house made pralines, for an additional charge.

Some Mosseberg Kurorten hotel packages include lunch or dinner. Our package included breakfast. Room service is available for an additional fee.

We always prefer to book hotels with breakfast included, as we are able to make our lunch for the afternoon from the breakfast offerings. You’ll see what I mean when you look at Mosseberg Kurorten hotel’s breakfast buffet.

Mosseberg Kurorten hotel breakfast buffet includes brown bread, wheat bread, wheat rolls in a wire basket. A toaster is on the buffet counter with a crock of butter. Next to the toaster is a dish of crackers, two crocks of jam in glass jars. Next are platters of two Swedish white cheeses, sliced ham and turkey meat and condiments for the meats and cheeses.

SPA Mösseberg in Sweden

The spa experience at Mosseberg Kurorten Sweden hotel is different than what we are used to in the United States. I was expecting an outdoor swimming pool at Mosseberg Kurorten hotel. There is a large, indoor swimming pool, as well as two smaller hot tubs outside on the wood deck. The hot tubs are ground level and you use a ladder to descend into the hot tubs.

We arrived at Mosseberg Kurorten hotel in Sweden in the evening and opted to try out SPA Mösseberg after dinner. The spa opens everyday at 9:00 a.m. and closes at 10:00 p.m. Guests receive a spa robe and Mosseberg Kurorten logo slippers, as well as a wristband that opens the doors to SPA Mösseberg.

Specific spa times are assigned to hotel guests during weekends, or the busy season, to eliminate crowding. This was not an issue on our June visit. My understanding is that guests head to the coast in the summer, so look for Mosseberg Kurorten hotel specials on the website.

Three picture windows look out to the outdoor hottubs. Several sets of plastic flowers line the picture windows. A wood and glass door leads outside to the hot tubs.
