Stayed here two nights and could happily have stayed much longer. This is the epitome of boutique and is so historic to boot! The various suites are spread about the town, but all within easy walking distance of the main reception area, where breakfast is served. Fantastic service and welcome, and the suites are quirky, very comfortable and well furnished. This place is well worth a visit, one of the nicest hotels I’ve stayed in.

This hotel is unique. It has separate apartments with a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath. It is decorated as you would your own home. There is plenty of space. You feel like you live in the town rather than feeling like you are in a hotel. It makes you want to run away and live in Risor! It is accessible to the whole town and parking is easy. Breakfast is included and the manager is a very friendly person and a native English speaker.You will not find a more perfect place to relax.

Room tip: All the accommodations are quaint and large.I'd like to stay in every one.

Det lille Hotel is without doubt our best hotel experience this year. Brilliant service from A to Z. We received a sweet studio apartment that had everything we needed and more. Definitely the place to stay in Risør. We will be back!

I've stayed here about 6 times and it's always been great. There is no hotel nearby to beat it. Lovely, unique rooms, cosy and well designed. Great service, it doesn't feel like a hotel, much more personal than that. Great service in a beautiful small town, can't recommend it enough. And I would also recommend the local restaurant "Promenaden".

Room tip: They're all pretty good.

What a delightful surprise! Det Lille Hotel has suites/apartments around the small harbor town, easily reachable by car/foot or the hotel's free bikes. We stayed in a refurbished loft filled with sea life antiques (The Matros suit). The bed was mattresses on the floor, but in a nice, good and charming way. Kitchenette, TV, dining table. The house we stayed in had three more suites, different than ours - and nice as well (our friends stayed there - real beds for those worried about that). The house is on the Norwegian heritage list (a former retirement house for seamen).
Before the great breakfast at the reception house in the center of town we enjoyed a four minutes bike ride along the harbor. Great friendly and personal service from the fixed staff. The signature dish is Fishcakes. For breakfast we pressed our own juice, had eggs and bacon made to order and ate both in the cozy lounge and out on the sidewalk. Great location for small group conferences. Another couple we know stayed in a four room modern apartment over the reception. They were so happy with it, but we liked our romantic nest better :-)
We will be back - actually we will make a weekend trip from Oslo back here - just for Det Lille Hotel - not to visit Risør as such.

Hi and thanks for the super review! Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay, and that you took the time to write about it!. Just to confirm the bed in Matros suite is a proper bed but low to the floor because of the sloping roof :-)

Welcome back soon!
