We stayed here while on a tour. The location is strategically great for exploring the fjord the hotel sits near. Better yet, the rooms are quite nice with a closet, modern and spacious bathroom and comfortable beds. There is free wifi and it works great. A small desk with lamp, small patio with chairs and a 2 person love seat, round out the little extras. Breakfast spread is huge and varied. There is a pool, hot tub and sauna. I have just a couple pet peeves that prevent a 5 star rating.
The water in the bathroom sink is in a fine spray format, great for washing fruits and veggies but not so much for hands etc. and then there's the shower. My wife managed to turn the thing on but then shouted to me she could not turn it off. So I decided to take my shower and then turn it off for my sometimes mechanically challenged spouse. Short story: it took me 5 minutes of tinkering and adjusting 3 different unlabeled knobs before the water magically turned off. I have no idea how it happened and thanked God we did not have to use the thing again. Seriously, folks, if you have a shower that requires an advanced degree in engineering to operate, you ought to post a set of instructions in the bath. Perhaps Scandinavian clients intuit the operation but we have been all over Europe and never encountered a shower like this one. PS the shower water pressure was fine and there was plenty of hot water. We just couldn't shut it off. Think about the wasted water.
Bottom line this is a great place to stay and we would return. Only thing is we would ask for a copy of the shower instruction manual upon check in. Hotel tip. It appears that the even numbered rooms face the parking lot and the odd numbers have the view. Since this was a tour of course we overlooked the parking lot. If you book on your own ask about the view because the water side of the hotel has fabulous scenery but I'm sure commands a premium rate.
