I stayed here one night while exploring family genealogy. Kris and Els went way beyond expectations and were very helpful in obtaining information about the nearby sites I wanted to visit. The location and rooms were great. Everything was very clean. The food was great as well. Highly recommend. I would love to stay here again.

When we saw this B&B we immediately booked and we were not disappointed. The house is finished to a nice standard and has been decorated beautifully. Bathroom and bedrooms are clean and the guests benefit from some lovely garden for picnics. Wifi is free and strong. Thanks to the lovely hosts. Would come again and stay longer.

Looking for a beautiful, remote and quiet place, I was not disappointed when I arrived at the "Old school". Although my train had been delayed and arrived at Kil station at 09:30 pm, my host Joshua was so friendly to pick me up and drive me to his wonderful B&B. A refreshing night of peaceful sleep later a very tasty... More

We intended to stay here for two nights, but finally stayed a night longer because the atmosphere was so nice. Joshua and Monika (and their two daughters) are very warm and helpful. The way they renovated this old school building is very nice, and the rooms are homy decorated. The matresses of the beds are great :) The environment is... More

Friends adviced us to go to Gamla Skolan, so after a tiring trip with a canoo we decided to go to the promised 'relax-heaven'. They didn't lie! Joshua picked us up at the bus stop so we didn't have to walk up to the house. It felt a bit as coming home: a nice, warm and cosy place where we... More

This was our second stay with Joshua and Monika in about 3 years, and since we are travelling from New Zealand and could go to lots of other places in the world and in Sweden, I hope that indicates how much we love this place and this family. Joshua and Monika are easy-going, fun,and genuinely helpful in every way possible.... More

The B&B is situated in the rural countryside where every season has it's own charm. We offer the perfect solution for those who are just passing through the area or for those who wish to spend a nice holiday in Varmland.

There is a nice terrace where you can enjoy a good book or you can even take your laptop with you as we offer free Wifi in all rooms. "Gamla Skolan" means "Old School" The building functioned as a school for kids in the country side up to the 60's. We have 3 double rooms and one vacation house across the courtyard that has room for 6 persons. This house can be rented per week, for more information and prices please click here. The B&B is situated in a rural environment and is therefore perfect for anyone just wants to relax. You can of course also choose to do something active.
