  • Pancake party for breakfast at weekends and during holidays

New ecological kids menu at Scandic Hotels

We have now launched a brand new kids menu* at our hotels based on the kids' opinions of favourite meals.

Besides, we also met the parents expectations; the food is made of fine ecological quality ingredients. Now the children can choose among ecological pancakes, spaghetti with meat sauce of minced meat and a plate of nachos.

Furthermore, the youngest children are offered a two coarse canned infants' food.
*A full kids menu is available on 66 of our best family hotels. Other Scandic Hotels have a limited kids menu, read more here.
