“Basic but functional.”
Reviewed 25 October 2011

Firstly this hotel is currently being renovated (25 Oct 2011). I have stayed here in the past and found it basic but comfortable (but with problem areas),
Not seen what they are doing with the refurb but I hope it is the rooms and bathrooms as they are pretty dated. Avoid any rooms at the front of the hotel if you like a quiet night, there is a main road with a very busy ferry terminal accross the road which is heavily used by freight traffic.
There is no satelite television, luckily soem fo the programmes are just subtitled in Norwegian from English so you can sometimes gfind something to watch. The bar is usually pretty deserted, but that may be more to do with the prices in Nowrway.
The food and restaurant has been good and very poor in the past. My last visist a few months ago the chef had resigned and they were making do but it was pretty awful. In the past is has been good however the portions are very mean and it is very very expensive (compared to UK prices).
Breakfast is the standard help yourself continental offering and usaully ok.
They now have free interent throughout where in the past it was only available in the lobby.

Room Tip: CGet a room at the back for quiet nights

I stayed one night in a single room that reeked from mold or something organic, almost like a camping cabin from the 70's. The reseption, lobby and restaurant is very nice and newly redecorated, but the rooms havn't been redone in the past twenty years, at least.

The staff was very pleasant and the fish dinner was quite good, but the sorry state of the room gives this a poor rating.

Stayed here in Dec 10 while attending a seminar. The hotel is well located being right accross the ferry terminal and the beautiful Fijords. The rooms are relatively small but then again its best western. The restaurant is decent providing a good meal and the serice is excellent. The hotel is right next to the main block where you can find indian and loads of chinese restaurants. me over all stay was plesent. Thiught they dont have room service other than that it is great.

Poor standard of hotel. Only plus point is the free internet.

Appaling quality, service and value in restaurant even by Norweigan levels this place is a complete rip off for food!

Burger bar quality for very expensive costs

The room was small and cold. Had to wait 15 minutes before the hot water came trough the pipes. Nice breakfast and free WIFI helps..

Reviewed 27 October 2007

this hotelwas very poor .it was quite rundown, while it appeared to be undergoing some renovations , the workers materials were left lying around the hallway . I thought the bar was extremely expensive, then i discovered all norwegian pubs, restaurants etc seem to be the same . Just about ok for somewhere to spend the night, but overall we were quite unimpressed
