    Our room was street side and noisy throughout the night. Difficult when you have to get up at 4 am to catch a flight!

    Room and bathroom were very nice, I enjoyed seeing the whaling artifacts— it was like going to a museum we got to town too late to go to the real museum). Having dinner and breakfast was very nice. Staff was very helpful— arranged a taxi for us to the airport and a to go breakfast.

    nothing comes to mind

    This is a nice themed hotel with a lot of historical artefacts displayed in the common areas and dining areas of the hotel dedicated to the Sandefjords maritime past. The staff are extremely knowledgeable, informative, helpful and courteous. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The breakfast is excellent. The hotel is close to the railway station, shopping district, restaurants and harbour. And is only a short journey by taxi or train to the local airport.

    They sell the room including a buffet dinner. But it was not a buffet, there was a dish with meat and onions and a dish with sweet papatos and two types of salad. In my opinion a buffet gives you a choice between 3-4 type of food. In a previous stay there were 4 types of Italian pasta. That was good, that was a buffet.

    Friendly staff, nice rooms. Interesting ambiance.

    I have mobility problems & could have apreciated some hand rails on the main steps down into the dining place.

    Excellent room with two easy chairs to relax in; very quiet, and comfortable beds. Very attentative staff throughout. Housekeeping noticed that my pillow was too large & without asking there was an extra one put out for me. The food quality was first class with a set evening meal included which was excellent. Breakfast was very varied, with loads of healthy options. An interesting hotel with a lot of whaling memorabilia to look at, could qualify for museum status. A most pleasant stay indeed.

    The whaling themed dining room was gloomy and felt oppressive; we had booked a buffet dinner. We arrived an hour after it had started to find some of the food, including the dessert, gone; our bedroom was above a bar and the noise from the bar went on until well past midnight

    Most of the staff were very pleasant but one member of staff was most unfriendly and made me feel quite unwelcome. This was the one disappointing aspect of my stay.

    In the centre of town and just a couple of minutes on foot from the railway station. Lovely room - comfortable and spacious. The fact that breakfast, an afternoon snack and evening meal are included in the price (check the terms of your booking to be sure this applies to your reservation) means that this hotel represents excellent value for money in a country as expensive as Norway. Furthermore, the food was of a good standard.
