The hotel’s website suggests that this is an impressive, high quality, mix of classical and contemporary styles, aspiring to be a boutique option in Stavanger. Sadly, it didn’t fulfil this promise and, although my stay was pleasant, I felt that I’d received a discount version of the website promise, maybe to reflect the good discount I’d obtained when booking through Expedia.
The hotel’s location is good – right on the edge of the pedestrianized shopping streets full of small shops, galleries and cafes and ten minutes from the cathedral and harbour. Stavanger is a great weekend break location.
The reception and lobby are somewhat small. I was given a small single-bedded room. Judging by the floor plan, it was the smallest room on the floor and lacked the spacious impressions of the website. The narrow single bed was comfortable and there was a desk, minibar and tv (no English language channels apart from the God Channel!). There was a kettle and tea/coffee but, oddly, no sugar. Most annoying, there was just one coat hook plus three plastic hangers on it – no other cupboard, drawer or shelving space for clothes at all Another hook was missing. The bathroom was modern and smart with Bjorn Borg toiletries – but no tissues and no face cloth. Free wifi is available, although is slightly erratic. The door lock/card were a bit temperamental.
Breakfast was of good quality with a fairly wide range – meatballs, fried eggs, cereals, cold meats, bread, fruit, etc. Hot soup was available between 6pm and 8pm on weekdays only, although when I went at 7pm, both soup and coffee had all gone. There is no other evening food offering which, again, isn’t quite clear from the website.
Staff were friendly and helpful.
