Hotel Skeppsholmen offers a number of uniquely charming and attractive venues for all kinds of feasts, celebrations and social events. Our secluded urban oasis is sure to add romantic value to your great occasion.
Skridskopaviljongen (The Ice Skating Pavilion)
Most unique is Skridskopaviljongen, the Royal Ice-skating Pavilion, on the adjacent small, secluded and idyllic Kastellholmen island waterfront. Built in 1882 on commission by King Oscar II, for the Royal Skating Club and the Royal Yacht Club, this is where the Royal family and their entourage used to fashionably enjoy a cup of hot chocolate or perhaps a glass of warm alcoholic punch after skating on the frozen bays of Stockholm. The premises, culturally protected by law down to the smallest detail, have been lovingly restored and renovated into a top standard event venue, unique among its kind, for all types of parties, cocktail receptions, dinners and celebrations for up to 75 guests.
Sjöofficersmässen (The Naval Officer’s Mess)
The former mess room for the naval officers’ functions is a beautiful, very bright, splendidly decorated room facing south, with a magnificent view, for meetings and events with up to 100 plus guests. The room, rich with splendid historic decorative details, can be divided into two sections for dinner banquets, cocktail receptions and all other kinds of social gatherings.
In addition, Hotel Skeppsholmen offers a number of other medium-sized and smaller rooms, as well as our private dining lounge Departementet adjacent to the restaurant. The lounge is famous for its unique interiors by Claesson Koivisto Rune, featuring a signature seven meter long, specially designed and custom-made oak table.
Our lush turn-of-the-19th-century garden is another great event venue during the warm season when many prefer to enjoy their drinks, cocktails and dinners in the greenery, overlooking the glittering vista of the harbor inlet.
For those of you who like to feature other experiences as part of your celebration, Hotel Skeppsholmen, in collaboration with various partners, offers a wide range of activities, spanning from the soothing and relaxing to the adventurous. As our hotel is located on the waterfront, many of these activities are naturally staged at sea.
