Excellent location and Breakfast with a very cooperative staff .The only trouble was the construction on the roads which were a bit noisy and airport buses take a different route instead of stopping right in front of the hotel .

The hotel was magnificent! Staff was very friendly and kind. They had extra towels ready for us upon arrival. The breakfast that was included in our stay was delicious and plentiful. They have a good variety of traditional Norwegian food as well as hot eggs, yogurts etc. The front desk was helpful with answers and food recommendations in town and... More

The hotel is very well or strategically situated, "close" to everything. There are eateries, shops, buses, all within walking distance. And a great view of the landscape when you step out of the hotel and look to your left. My room was clean and spacious, and the bed was comfortable. However, one of the bedside lamps was not working. I... More

This hotel is central and we appreciated the location! They let us store our hired bikes inside (even though it wasn't in a room but it was still good of them). We had a room facing the main street which was nice. Nice breakfast too! I recommend this place and would stay here again.

Had ordered room through COOP. First we got room against backyard with much smell from kitchen when we opened window. We asked for a new room in reception and got a much better room. Standard the same, but with better view and fresh air. Rooms need updating. Friendly and serviceminded staff / reception. Nice breakfast.
