Great Location for a Training Course I taught an IT training course here. We has the class in one of the huts in the gardens of this fine castle, but ate in the main house. There is a seperaate 'hotel' block. The accommodation was good - although we did not have daily room cleaning service. The food was fantastic. The views from the dining room was stunning, over Oresund. Breakfast, especially the scrambled eggs, was excelent. I loved the other meals too! Would love to return.

Beautiful place. Too bad the staff didnt know how to tend the bar (cause the one man who knew was asleep/off duty). Great gardens.

This hotel is worth visiting for its really beautiful surrounding. Hotel itself has very nice park with paths to take a walk. It also has mini golf course, nice outdoor swimming pool. Rooms are standard to spacy. For example, like elsewhere in Scandinavia, you will not find a shower tub in the bathroom, just a tiled floor. However, wonderful view from the park over the small harbour is breathing.

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
