We stayed here last weekend for our wedding anniversary.
The hotel is in a great location with fantastic views. We were in room 412 which was a fantastic corner room overlooking the Fjord on one side and the spa on the other. The room was well laid out, but a minor point - the air conditioning/heating didn't work and the room could get a little stuffy and hot at night. We fixed this by sleeping with the balcony doors open.
The buffet breakfast was amazing - so much choice and variety of foods to suit all. The dinner is a set menu with a vegetarian option only, but it was incredibly high quality. Be aware that the hotel bar doesn't open on Sunday nights. I'm not sure if this is a Norway wide thing, or just the hotel.
The spa - what a treat. We mostly had the spa area to ourselves and the facilities are amazing. The hydrotherapy pool and the warm outdoor infinity pool were our favourites. The sauna/steam room with icy plunge pool is also great, and there is the option of going out and swimming in the Fjord - which we did. Great experience.
The hotel seemed very quiet except for Saturday night, which suited us. They are doing some renovation work in the entrance lobby, but this didn't affect us.
Great stay - we'd come again and would recommend it.
