Hmmmm. A perfectly comfortable hotel in a good location with a great view of the harbour from the room. The showers are vigorous, the staff are helpful. Breakfast is good (Norwegian bread is routinely superb). There's free coffee on tap and this is the only hotel where I have ever come across a brass band practising in one of the conference rooms. It's also one of the few hotels I know that actually puts two easy chairs in a room for two. So why I am marking it average, it's the strange experience with the restaurant. The restaurant menu is displayed in the hotel, outside the restaurant and outside of the restaurant. We went down to the restaurant one evening, first there were no staff, the place was deserted. We eventually asked reception and they went to find somebody. Next there was a performance about a table, despite the fact that the restaurant was empty and only three tables were laid for dinner there seemed to be some doubt whether we could have a table or not. Once we had sorted that we were given the menu which was very limited and not the menu which was displayed. We were then told that the menu which was displayed was not available in the winter. That was the point I decided to go somewhere else to eat. I don't expect that level of service from a hotel in this price range
