NOT a 4 star hotel, lack of facilities and very dated in design and interiour and one of the first things you notice is how worn things are. Beds are narrow. Great breakfast and helpfull reseptionist. Good location but basic. ............

A great hotel with the best service and view. To sit in the room watching the sea make you almost not want to leave it. Breakfast gives you a perfect start before you can go out to a very nice town. If you have the chance, stay there.

We went there to eat in the restaurant, which was a dissapointing experience. The menu is a confusing mix of this and that, however the food was average. I have not stayed at the hotel, however would no go there for the restaurant again. The view over the fjord is however great, but thats it.
