Such a wonderful place...

4.6 on September 06, 2014

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 breakfast consisting of buns, bread, butter, ham, cheese, jam, a boiled egg, free-refill coffee and fruit juices waited for me. Joshua and his family were very friendly and obliging, they even offered to take me into town and fetch me so I could go shopping. One day, Joshua even went canoeing with me, which gave me the opportunity to make some really idyllic photos. The countryside surrounding Gamla Skolan is just lovely, I found exactly what I had been looking for. If you like walking in magical forests, breathe fresh, clean air and let your soul take a rest from the hectic everyday life in the city, you're just right at the "Old School". I highly recommend this neat, clean and comfortable B&B and the courteous host family running it! André

Trevligt boende.

Denna mysiga gamla skola var en fin upplevelse med mkt bra bemötande av värdparet, god frukost och mysig miljö i skogen. Vi kommer tillbaka

Great weekend

We visited this B&B over a weekend and we thought it was fantastic. The environment and the old-fashioned style was very cozy. The service was fantastic and very nice. We definitely recommend this B&B. The bath-room was clean and had verry good showers. We just needed a bed and roof for two night during our tripp and we got a great wekend with rural setting, relaxation and beautiful nature outside! Henrik and Marie

Super relaxing stay

We had a very nice and above all relaxing stay at Monica en Joshua's place. Tasty breakfast specially made at the hour we chose. Nice rooms, big sunny bathroom and a very cosy living room that felted as if we were home. After a tiring trip with a canoo we could rest and relax with a nice cup of tea and some Swedisch good movie or serie. While it was raining outside, Joshua put the stove on which made it even better. We enjoyed our stay very very much!

Einsamkeit, blauer Himmel, tiefblaue Seen und grüne Wälder und Wiesen

Drei Tage verbrachten wir bei der Familie von Monika und Joshua und haben uns wunderbar erholt. Die Gastgeber versorgten uns sehr gut mit einem leckeren Frühstück, aber auch mit zahlreichen Ratschlägen. Das Wohnzimmer und das Frühstückszimmer sind sehr gemütlich eingerichtet, die Schlafräume und das große Bad zweckdienlich und sauber. Bei schönem Wetter kann man draußen im Garten sitzen und träumen (oder - wenn man es unbedingt will - Mails checken und skypen). Das gemeinsame Nutzen eines Bades ist in Schweden weit verbreitet, man muss sich vorher überlegen, ob man es will. Uns hat es kein Problem bereitet.

Our first bed&breakfast

5 on April 24, 2013

We were travelling with my family (2 adults and 2 kids) from Stockholm to Atlantic Road in Norway. It was on July 2012. We've decided to try Bed&Breakfast Gamla Skolan because it was near the border from Sweden side. So, we suggested that it will be cheaper then in Norway - and it was. We have successfully shared our way to not get tired much. Very clean showers, comfortable beds and lovely owners - what could be more pleasant when traveling with children. So fast I can recover in a rare hotel. Old school looks fresh. It is felt that Joshua and Monica love this place and genuinely care to all the guests liked the rest. In fact, we had the unique opportunity to communicate simply for deeper understanding of the Swedish mentality. Perhaps, that is why we warmly remember this place. Regards to Joshua, Monica and to their kids from Saint-Petersburg!

totally lovin' it!

The last time we went here, was last July. Ever since I have been planning on writing a review about this lovely place, but somehow I can't seem to find the correct words to describe our thoughts about Gamla Skolan. So instead of writing about how we love staying there, the fact that Monika and Joshua make exellent hosts or that it feels like coming home... Let me describe it like this: If we go somewhere and we don't like it... then they will never see us again! If we go somewhere and we do like it... then the chance is great that we will go back someday We visited Gamla Skolan 3 times in less then a year... Now u do the maths ;-)

Eine alte Schule mitten im Grünen und dazu noch sehr freundliche Gastgeber. Zwei Nächte haben wir in Gamla Skolan verbracht und in schöner Erinnerung behalten. Einfach mal die Seele baumeln lassen und die Natur geniessen.

We stayed for one night on our way to Norway. Its location is delightful surrounded by woodland. If you want a peaceful few days then this is the place. The house has character and the hosts are very friendly.
