    We had a wonderful time staying at this stylish, yet cozy Scandic. Our family room was modern, clean, with a beautiful bunk bed, which thrilled our seven-year old. Our dog was happy to perch on the lower bunk, as well. The staff are great, relaxed,...More

    Quite good value for the prica, about 1400-1500 nok for four beds one might. Stunning view, sunrise out of the ocean. Breakfast good, fantastic aquarama next door, however this is expensive and not included or rebated for guests.
