My report echoes that of benmogsy so will not reiterate everything. Having flown in from England to Copenhagen and collected a hire car to drive to Stockholm we looked for a quiet stopover not far off E4. Stora Hotellet was in many ways perfect situated in a quiet small town. We enjoyed a double aspect bedroom which was clean but lacked a hairdryer something we only found in the morning. We too were caught out by the restaurant being closed and felt we should have been pre-warned as (on a Monday at least) there did not appear to be other restaurants open if you were not looking for a pizza or burger.
Breakfast buffet was good for the size of the establishment and the welcome excellent.
Sadly the public areas lacked cleaning (stairs and window cills) and the promised coffee and cake in the lounge lacked the cake.

Room tip: Double aspect room on second floor offered good view of village

The town of Markaryd is a lovely, sleepy little town. It is neat and tidy, very quiet and has a very pleasant feel about the place. Stora Hotellet could be very good with just a bit of adjustment (management please take note). The hotel is a little inconsistent with its presentation. The public rooms are well decorated and are kept clean and tidy. The staff are pleasant and the breakfast was excellent.The girls at breakfast continually replenished the buffet so it was always fresh and the choice, though not huge was well presented and was certainly enough. It is conveniently situated for the E4 and very near to the Elk Safari which is an amazing experience.
The negative part........The hotel has no lift so the stairs could be a bit of a climb for older guests, especially if carrying a heavy suitcase. We had a nice airy corner room but the toilet was not clean, the shower curtain had a brown stain around the bottom, there was a used shampoo sachet in the shower and it seemed obvious that the bathroom had not been cleaned. The stairs between the floors were very dusty and had not been cleaned for a few weeks. I was looking forward to using the restaurant but this was now closed for two weeks, this could have been posted on the hotel web site.
I certainly will use the hotel again as I loved the small town and I hope that cleaning pocedures will have changed by then.

Nice and clean room, good breakfast and friendly staff. Good location near E4 highway, about 450km from Stockholm. Still quiet atmosphere. Food in the hotel restaurant was awesome! Good value for money.

I am just back after a short trip to Sweden where I had a night at the Store Hotellet in Markaryd, Sweden. I have stayed here before a long time ago (app 10 years) and everything seems like back then, except you will now have internet and the rooms have all been refurbished with new beds etc.

We selected a business room because we needed the refrigerator and we were not disappointed. The two single beds were quite comfortable although on the soft side - but nothing beats scandinavian bedding and pillows.

The TV was not that big, and there were not that many channels available, but all in all if you just want to relax this is just fine.

The bathroom was, like everyting else, really clean with a nice comfortable shower. Since the room was so warm, we had cold showers to cool off but and did not need the warm water at all.

Breakfast was great and included in package. some people were enjoying their coffee and breakfast outside and the children I saw, were very happy with the pancakes in the buffet.

Suggested improvement: The hotel should consider upgrading the fan during the hot season. We had a tiny ventilator running at full speed all the time, but maybe because the window cannot be fully opened at first floor, it was not sufficient to cool down the room.

Room tip: If it is the warm season, you might want to avoid the sunny side - no rooms comes with aircon.
