Solstrand Hotel & Bad

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2012

We ended our Norway journey at Solstrand for 3 nights. We knew it was going to be a very nice experience, but what we have discovered here was simply amazing. The mansion is a true beauty, it has been refurbished and modernized during the past decade with full respect of the original construction. The gardens, pools, buildings and rooms are very well maintained.
The large "salons" and bars that cover a huge part of the mansion bring you back in the early 1900's, but in a modern environment. They are stunning. The view on the fjord and the landscape you have from almost anywhere is simply stunning. The pool, sauna, jacuzzi experience is absolutely wonderful. It's a modern, huge and clean area where silence is the main actor.
The personnel is wonderfully helpful and friendly.
We had 3 breakfasts here that were one of the best ever experiences, and I can tell you I've seen lots of hotel breakfasts all over the world.
We also had 2 dinners, we took the daily menu each time, and it was delightful.
In conclusion, this place is a real discovery that I would like to share with many.
Small side note, the bathrooms are (too) small compared to the greatness of the resort.

I was in Solstrand hotel last week for a symposium and I must say I spent a wonderfull week there. I was very happy to discover a large room, well equiped with little balcony, a large working space, a large coach just in front of the double window facing the fjord and a minibar. Moreover, there is a free wifi connexion everywhere in the hotel. There is a very nice garden between the hotel and the seashore with numerous places to sit and enjoy the landscape. Walking in the garden will lead you to the private little marina where the hotel own 3 small row boats for clients who want to have a short ride on the fjord. You will also find in this place a Spa with special treatments and massage (need to make reservation and to pay for the treatments) and a hot swimming pool that goes outside, a jacuzzi, 2 saunas and a wet sauna. I heard that some poeple complained about food in Norway but in Solstrand you can forget about that. The food at the restaurant is absolutely excellent. I am looking forward to come back with my wife for holidays.

Room Tip: Ask for a view on the garden and the fjord

The spa facilities and pool(s) are top class - One of the best I have experienced on my regular travels around the globe. The staff are very friendly and attentive and seem to go out of their way to make you feel welcome. The views are simply breathtaking if the weather is right and are worth every penny you pay to stay here. The rooms are comfortable an the food is excellent but choices a little limited compared to other hotels. There is no other local hotel that can compare to the Solstrand and I almost cancelled my trip this week as I could not originally get in here. This is my fourth stay here in the last 6 months and I will definitely be back!

the views are absolutely breathtaking from Solstrand but considering prices charged, a few things could definitely be improved. Their was no information given at check-in re facilities of the hotel or an explanation of where things were located in this very large hotel.
Also, extra and better quality towels should be provided with a superior range and variety of products in the bathroom plus a more modern hair dryer. Bed linen could also be improved. conferences seem to be popular here- do the rest of us subsidize the group bookings?

It is the second time I have a chance staying at Solstrand in Bergen, last time was 2 years ago.
Location is outstanding: almost every room has a view over the fjord, there is no busy road nearby, and they managed to keep all of the 100 years original building, with some very nice additions. This place has lots of charm, "cachet", and history. The view from the rooms is simply outstanding.
The reception is perfect: extremely well-trained, committed, smiling and efficient collaborators, checking-in is like a pleasant conversation.
Rooms are just great, large, well arranged, very, very cosy, excellent quality of bed and linen. Still, bathrooms will need some overhauls sooner or later, but nothing to complain about really.
The spa is of course outstanding and occupies a whole floor, with water jets, steam, spa, indoor pool, outdoor pool, etc...
The staff at the restaurant is great, and the food delicious, and plentiful.
Of course, there is always room for improvements, but overall, the outstanding location of the place, just next to great outdoor activities, and 15km away from Bergen city center, the friendliness of the staff, and overall great maintenance of the place, togetehr with high-end spa, make the Solstrand a real five stars hotel - Solstand is timeless, quite unique, and among the very finest hotels in Norway.
A must stay in Bergen. It's my second time here and there will be a third one for sure.

Dear Sir,
Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Solstrand, and especially that you found our reception and restaurant staff helpful at all times. Our reception staff is all local and has been with us for many years.

Focus on maintenance and environment is our priority in order to be able to offer an up to date experience with our more than 100 years of existence. All our buildings recently received energy mark B, which is rather exceptional for historical buildings. In Norway only so-called passive houses receive an A. The whole house is heated and cooled by seawater from the fjord. Furthermore disinfectant for the pools is manufactures on site by electrolysis of water and salt, avoiding transport and work with hazardous chemicals. All food waste is composted and is produced into organic fertilizers for the hotel’s 120 acer garden.

We look forward to welcoming you to Solstrand again on your next travel to Europe.

Kind regards,
Pernille Schau-Larsen

nice location for this hotel in the fjord. the style is typically norwegian and the scenery around can be breathtaking. The free Spa area is amazing with the outside swimming warmed pool in which I enjoyed myself, surrounded by snow in January. I hopeto go again in the same winter season just to enjoy this moment again. Top class!
