A warm welcome to Stora Hotellet & restaurant Gotthard’s Krog – take a quick look under each heading in the main menu to get acquainted with us prior to your stay. We are far from the typical hotel restaurant – among other things we hold a proud high ranking on TripAdvisor – and we offer a variety of experiences as a part of your stay with us.
We are open from early in the morning to late in the evening. Gotthards is the port of call for the people of Umea as well guests from all over the world. Enjoy!
Gotthard’s restaurant in Stora Hotellet has a proud bar, dining room and casual dining area in our continental indoor square.
The name Gotthards Krog is a tribute to Stora Hotellet’s first hotel manager and restaurateur, Gotthard Zetterberg, an explorer and sailor who among many other adventures sailed with Adolf Nordenskiölds famous Greenland expedition in 1878.
After settling in his home town Gotthard became the epicentre of the local entertainment business, the natural link between the splendour of the Grand Hotel and the saltiness of the seamans home.
When we opened Gotthards Krog in 2014 we wanted to draw from the soul of the place and its dynamic history. A place coloured by influences from ports across of the world settling into a small but ambitious northern town by a river that leads visitors to it as well as helps adventurers on their way.
Regardless of whether you visit our bar, the continental indoor square or the dining room we want to share memorable experiences that weave together Umea with the rest of the world under one single roof.
We also made a clear decision to make your stay with us as sustainable as possible. In this we've gone above and beyond to take care of the world that influences and informs our choices. The vegetable cuisine which is at the core of our cooking across all our restaurants is supplied largely from our own vegetable farm. All of our bread and pastry is supplied by Kulturbageriet, our artisanal bakery in the same building. We are one of only a few organically certified restaurants in Umea.
