A hotelroom is more than just a room. It is a small haven. A place where you can relax from a hectic life and do what you want to do. In 1994, a 20-year Master Franchise agreement between Choice Hotels and Choice Hotels International was signed.
The agreement gives the company exclusive rights to market the brands Comfort, Quality, Quality Resort, Clarion Collection and Clarion in Scandinavia, as well as access to the chain´s international distribution and reservation systems.
Nordic Hotels & Resorts doesn´t market its hotels under a mutual name. Instead, they are marketed under the hotel´s own unique names. These hotels have often been acquired after the brands been established by building a strong brand themselves. The hotels within Nordic Hotels & Resorts are Yasuragi Hasseludden in Stockholm, Aronsborg in Bålsta, Farris Bad in Larvik, Copperhill Mountain Lodge in Åre, Stenungsbaden Yacht Club in Stenungsund and Selma Spa+ i Sunne.

Piccolo, our Children´s Hotel mascot visits our hotels during the summer. Piccolo has created his own set of rules. The youngest guests have a written right to pinch the director´s bum, the right to straws with every drink at every meal, and of course they are entitled to rooms free of ghosts, goblins and monsters underneath the beds. All this according to the Piccolo Act. Piccolo has also decided that all children should get a welcome-gift when they are staying at a Children´s Hotel. We have grouped our hotels in categories based on what concept the hotels can offer.
Children´s Hotel is divided into 3 Piccolo-categories:
1. Piccolo means the hotel has it´s own check-in for children, welcome gift and children movies in the hotel room
2. Piccolo means the hotel has everything that is offered at the first level + playing room and children´s menu.
3. Piccolo means the hotel has everything that is offered at the first and second level + many exciting activities. Our mascot Piccolo will also come and visit you!
