...a lot is left to be desired. A previous reviewer called the hotel 'self satisfied' and I agree. It's very smug but I am not sure that's justified.
I had a room on the second floor and was kept awake most of the night by the noise from the lifts even though my room was not actually next to them. This was a first, (I travel frequently) so I assume poor sound insulation.
The bathrooms have no complimentary toiletries bar soap. Wi-Fi is hit and miss. The 'gym' has one rowing machine, one treadmill, one elliptical trainer, a set of weights and a multigym machine. If there is more than one of you in the space then it's overcrowded. Oh and no mirror so its hard to check technique when doing weights.
Breakfast looks good at first glance. But the cheese and meat selection is poor, gluten free is not signposted, no waffles/pancakes (per other Norwegian hotels I stay in) and they ran out of some varieties of non caffeine teabags.
The bar doesn't have champagne or prosecco (very embarrassing when entertaining a client who requested it!) which seemed really odd.
This is a functional hotel that seems to think it is something more. I wish it had been.
