Located on highway E39 at the shore of the fjord next to the ferry landing some 15km outside of Alesund, the hotel enjoys a picturesque setting with panoramic views across the water. Though outside of Alesund, it nevertheless provides a comfortable base from which to explore the area, and it is ideally situated for those continuing their travel via the ferry. Ample parking is available in front of the hotel.
Privately owned and operated by proprietor Inga, a renowned artist, one is assured a warm welcome. Inga is a fountain of information on the history of her property and the area at large.
Our deluxe corner room #209 elicited a "VOW" upon entry. It is airy, bright with two walls of glass sliding doors providing access to the wrap around wooden deck. Bedding, walls etc. were all in white, adding to the feeling of airiness, designer touches everywhere. Comfortable, large overstuffed couch chairs, desk, 48"flat screen TV with the usual tree channels, all combined to the feeling to be in a private home rather than a hotel. A padded lounge chair and a wicker chair with side table on the deck added to that and invited one to sit in the late afternoon watching ferries come and go and enjoying the awesome view. A telephone and a hair dryer would be worthwhile enhancements to the room's inventory. Everything in the room and the tiled bathroom was absolutely spotlessly clean. Our bathroom design layout left some to be desired, i.e. awkward toilet placement and a shower without curtain or any form of enclosure, however, the comfortable room and deck made up for these inconveniences.
The building itself, lobby, and restaurant are all finished in light colored pine wood, giving rise to a very pleasing rustic ambiance. The restaurant was closed for dinner during our stay, but Inga drew a map of great detail, making sure we would not get lost finding the Italian restaurant Fellini she recommended in Spjelkavik, a nearby suburb. Breakfast served buffet style in the selection of items offered may have reflected the low pre-season occupancy of the hotel. Fruit would have been a worthwhile addition, nevertheless, the buffet contained all we needed to satisfy us. In summery, we greatly enjoyed our stay in room #209 and would stay at this hotel again at a future visit of Alesund.
