For the price they were asking I had expected better. It was a nice enough hotel in a tiny town on the south coast (sørlandet) of Norway but it was more pricy than our hotel in towns like Bergen and Stavanger without being better. There were no phone in the room but a cord gave away that there had been one. There were no beer in the minibar but fortunately Kiwi was open and had some local beer which was very nice.
I missed some AC as it was bot, but with all windows open is was
The menu at the website was not the one they were using. Nor was “Ukens meny” (menu of the week) the one they were serving. Furthermore the wine menu had also changed. If you have a website advertising your venue I think it should promote what you actually sell. Also I find it strange that they had “simplified the menu for the summer to make it easier for the cooks”.
Luckily they managed to makes us one lobster soup and one fish soup. The latter was a disappointment as it was rather thin and bland. Fortunately they had beef on the menu but I was rather surprised to find out a 200g beef rib steak (indrefilet) was two slices from a steak rather than one piece. That meant they were only seared around the edges rather than on both sides and that impaired the taste. There were no choice of potatoes – they were cocked, the sauce was thin and tasteless.
