It is now clear that the extensive upgrade of our main building has started . We are extremely happy with this investment and that Södergarn is being equipped for the future. The renovation will also provide major sustainability gains.
During the renovation (which is expected to last until the end of 2023), the business will continue to be run, but to a somewhat limited extent, as the main building will not be available. From November 7th, 2022, all functions in the main building such as kitchen, restaurant, bar and reception will be moved to Falkmanska Villan. The conference wing and hotel rooms will be available as usual.
The focus will be on day conferences, but we will also be able to offer full board. For reasons of space, the number of guests will need to be limited and the maximum number of day guests will be 70-80 guests and the number of evening guests 40-50 guests. It is above all our temporary restaurant that limits the number of guests. But with some adaptation regarding the nature of meals, there is also flexibility regarding the number of guests.
Time planning for meals will be a little extra challenging during this period, but we solve it together through good planning and management.
We look forward to this upgrade and will do everything we can to make the experience on Södergarn during this period as good as usual.
