Following a Scout Jamboree outside of Stavanger, our group toured around Norway, travelling back to Stavanger to fly home the next day. We chose this hotel as it was cost friendly and looked nice. We took a bus from the Train station and got off at our stop after about a 15 minute ride.
The entrance to the hotel is a short walk from the bus stop. We entered the lobby to find a large social area and a shop. There were lots of mothers pushing their new born babies around in transportable cots. At this point we didn't realise that the hotel is connected to a hospital.
We were shown to our rooms and given room keys. I was in a room with two of my friends. The room was a tad small, however it didn't bother me too much as we were only there for one night. The beds were quite roomy and very comfortable. We had a small wardrobe and a desk with a TV on it. The bathroom was quite big, and had a lovely warm shower.
On our last morning in Norway, we went downstairs to breakfast, and I was very impressed. There was a big buffet with a wide variety of food. There was all the British classics; bacon, scrambled egg; sausages, to name just a few. There was lots of cheeses and hams, as well as about 5 different types of cracker. There was a whole table full of fresh bread, and lots of different juices. There was also loads of fresh tropical fruit, and bowls of fresh yoghurt.
I enjoyed my stay here very much, it was warm and welcoming. I would defiantly stay here again if I ever returned to Stavanger.
