Unbeknown to us we booked to stay in a hospital. First day having lunch, couldn't figure out exactly what type of hotel it was then the man swinging his colostomy bag around confirmed it!! And put us off our lunch. "Hotel" was in quite a poor location, there are no local bars, restaurants were quite a walk away. Obviously the hospital doesn't have a bar in it and cannot buy beer in Norway after 8pm or 6pm on Saturday. Public transport excellent with Stavanger town centre around 10/15 mins away. Rooms were clean but very minimalist with no drawers, tea/coffee making facilities or hair dryer etc. beds were comfy. Just beware of the the helipad located above the hospital too!!
