We stayed here during a tour of Norway staying in historic hotels. This was one of, if not the best places we stayed in. It's expensive, but worth it.
Angvik Gamle Handelssted was a trading post dating from the 16th century. The hotel itself is built on the site of the former barrel factory - the form and some of the materials echo that building, but the new building is to extremely high standards.
Its setting is idyllic, on the shore of Tingvollfjorden, in a group of buildings which re-create the old trading post - they now accommodate an art gallery, museum, shop and pool/spa. In front of the hotel are pontoons, with boats available to hire, either for fishing, or just for rowing and enjoying the fantastic scenery.
Reception and public rooms are characterful and comfortable. The bedrooms are generous, with a good mix of modern and antique - the beds are large & comfortable, the bedding very good quality. The bathrooms are similarly high quality.
The restaurant serves a set meal each evening - excellent quality and service.
Service generally is efficient and discreet.
