In the charming village of Tällberg, you will experience the culture, craftsmanship, and proud traditions of Dalarna. Enjoy a full-service resort hotel surrounded by large green areas with a history that dates back to the 1950s.

The Hotel's history and its future

The history started in the 1950s when Post Office employees came to enjoy recreation and relaxation. Today, the hotel facility has developed into a whole resort with a large beautiful green courtyard and lots of activities both indoors and outdoors. With new owners, a new journey has begun regarding the hotel's development, where plenty of new projects will take place. Renovation is gradually taking place with a big respect for the building's character and the identity of the place. 

We are a cashless hotel.
