Brussels, 1st November 2000.. Today, one of Scandinavia's largest
conference, business and resort hotels joins Radisson SAS Hotels &
Resorts. Ronneby Brunn, a spring resort dating back to 1705 has 265
guest rooms and suites. The hotel has been re-named Radisson SAS Ronneby
Brunn Hotel, allowing the international hotel chain to put Ronneby,
often referred to as the garden of Sweden, on the world map.
Ronneby is situated in the south of Sweden, at about 500 kilometres
driving distance to Stockholm. In this charming town, the Radisson SAS
Ronneby Brunn property is beautifully located in a spring park with
waterfalls, a Japanese garden, old spring halls, and a well from the
beginning of the 18th century where one can still drink well-water.
120 guestrooms have undergone complete renovations, while the lobby,
entrance, reception, and the restaurant, seating 600 people, will also
undergo some works starting in March of next year.
Among the hotel facilities are 33 conference rooms and a congress hall
for up to 600 people. For evening activities, the hotel has a night club
for 700 guests, an out-door roof-covered barbecue terrace for 600
people, a cocktail bar, a banquet hall for up to 300 persons and a
steakhouse. Free access to Internet is offered in the hotel lobby.
The hotel also offers a relax centre with solarium, sauna, massage and
gym. There is a heated Olympic-size outdoor swimming pool with a diving
board and a 10-metre diving-tower, facing a water chute. Golf players
can enjoy a beautiful 18- hole course or practise on a miniature golf.
In addition, the hotel is surrounded by six tennis courts, a football
and a rugby field, a horseback riding centre as well as some jogging
tracks. One can also go salmon fishing in the Ronneby stream.
The management company Ronneby Brunn is owned by Norwegian Norlandia
Hotels A/S, whose Director for Sweden, Ståle Thorsen, says; To convert
hotels to other chains is a common procedure for Norlandia. The
co-operation we now enter with Radisson SAS will be the best possible
for Ronneby Brunn.
Ronneby Brunn's General Manager, Christian Mörkstedt, adds: The
co-operation with Radisson SAS allows us into a large international
sales organisation as well as a reservation system spanning worldwide.
We will be able to market ourselves internationally with considerably
more power, which I find very important considering the rapid
development of international and IT companies in the region.
