This is an old hotel in Sandefjord with long history. The owner has taken good care of the old parts of the hotel, so the style is kept as in old days. Rooms are nice and clean, I heard several customers brag about the nice rooms and the charm. The staff I met is polite and service minded, they have...

the rooms are so nice decorated and the bed was really comfortable. The hotel is just in the center and has its own parking. The breakfast was absolutely great.I just fell in love with the hotel. I would love to come back here 😍😍

A very cozy hotel in the middle of Sandefjord sentrum. With its big cozy and beautiful renovated rooms and a la carte restaurant with white table cloths. And not to forget, the very friendly staff and the Welsh guy who sings all the time and the Mexican guy who recomendet a very god tequila. Can not wait to come back.

Charming old building. Lovely furniture with several cozy places to sit and read. Delicious breakfast buffet, beautifully arranged. Lovely, old-fashioned room decor. Problem: could not sleep due to very warm rooms (summer visit). We were on the second floor, and the windows opened over a common area where people are allowed to smoke. Late at night, two people returned to...

It is an old, but newly renovated hotel. Very calm and relaxing atmosphere. The breakfast was above average hotel standard. The food was excellent, but the selection was a bit more limited than at bigger hotels. When I stayed there, the price was reasonable.

Then Carlos upgrade our room with Junior suite with private balcony at no extra cost plus he gave us free parking. Thanks Carlos! The rest: Excellent breakfast, free wifi, spacious & quiet room,...

It's nice to see a place where the service is top notch without the use of Swedish staff. We called relatively late and got a good price. The receptionist even moved his car so we could park (even on staff parking). We asked for a cheep room, a single room with a bigger bed as we were traveling on budget,...

Stayed for 2 night on business. Had heard different stories about the hotel. But was pleasantly surprised of how modern the room was. But i saw my colleagues rooms that were of the older style. I guess i got lucky. The staircases and hall ways are old and quiet. Only the squeeking from the floors and doors making it a...

The hotel and staff were excellent. This will be my goto hotel with any future visits to Norway. We are a 4-star luxury hotel family and we rank this hotel along those lines. The hotel is very old and excellent to explore. My 8yo had a blast seeing which rooms she could find and explore in. Pictures on the walls...

We got a big room in the annex beside the parking lot, but It was quiet. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious, breakfast items with many choices that were pleasingly displayed. It's a nice area to walk.
