The hotel's history
The hotel's history begins in 1905. At that time, Koster Islands was an important place for the herring trading, and the merchants needed a place to stay and do business. But when the hotel was finished, the herring period was over and the owners had to saddle and become part of the growing tourist industry on the Bohus coast. Tourism around Strömstad became increasingly popular and soon parties and other events were arranged on the island.
