Volvo Photo Locations Part 284
Gammelgården Hotel and Restaurang is located on Hjortronvägen in Sälen in the north of Sweden.
Gammelgården is located high up in the Sälen mountains. Several of our buildings are steeped in history having been built in the 1600s. They strive to offer their guests a relaxing and historically authentic stay.
Their accommodation is of a high standard. All 37 rooms contain an ensuite with shower and toilet. Rooms are located in three separate buildings, Lodgehuset, Dalahuset and Dungerska Villan.
Each building is furnished in the style of its name yet they offer the same warmth, coziness and level of comfort that spreads from the open fire place in the main living room. You open the door to step directly out into the Mountains, where you are surrounded by heather and moorland habitat and walking and skiing trails.
Snuggle in under a fluffy duvet and lay your head down on comfy pillows and just relax. Relax and re energize in our super comfortable rooms with cozy pillows and fluffy duvets. Gammelgården has 37 different sized rooms with shower/WC to choose from. The cozy rooms are distributed within three buildings, “Lodge Style” with wallpaper and fabrics from Ralph Lauren and the other with an emphasis on Dalarna influenced by Carl Larsson and the third Dungerska Villan, “lighter lodge style” some of them with balcony. The new Dungerska Villa building is inspired and named after Bosse Dunger, one of the owners in 1950 who developed Gammelgården with restaurants and accommodation.
