The hotel is at the seaside and from the room, we can have the full sea view. I was there on a sunny day and the sea and mountains view was terrific. The hotel also has a gym for the visitors which is across the street.

Fell upon this town & hotel after being caught up in traffic on motorway. Lovely hotel right on the water front. Hotel receptionist very friendly and brilliant giving us tips on what to do in the town. Room was adequate and breakfast ok - cooked food was cold but staff looked into the problem as soon as it was reported....

We loved the fact that our hotel was right on the harbor, central to everything. Ask for a room facing the water and watch the boats and ferries travel back and forth from the harbor. We took a short boat trip to Mordo Island, definitely picturesque and a great hiking spot.

Dear Martin, Thank you for visiting and for your kind words, we hope to see you again in the future! We have to point out though, that not all our rooms got oceanview, just below half of our rooms face the park by the entrance side of the hotel.

Nice, clean hotel with great views and comfortable beds. Clean rooms with charming style. The best part of this hotel are the employees. Excellent customer service. Our room was right over the smoking area so we couldn't have the windows open. It was too warm without it so they offered us either a fan or to ask the people to...

We celebrated our wedding-night here. First we got assigned to a not so great room, and because the room had no bathtub, which we had asked for when booking a room, we got switched to a different room. We were upgraded to a lovely suite, with a great view of the sea and a cozy bathtub. Breakfast was great, with...

We stayed 2 nights while finding my family roots in Southern Norway. Arriving after 9 pm we were thrilled to find the restaurant open, and the perfect bowl of fish soup and homemade bread. I'd recommend getting a room with a view of the harbor, especially on the 4th floor where the bedroom is in a loft above a sitting...

Overall a very nice experience. Beautiful view of the archipelago from the spacious room. Excellent breakfast. Only negative factor was that the hotel was a bit understaffed this weekend which led to very slow service from the restaurant.
