I stayed here for a business trip and was pleased to find a good quality hotel room. The staff was friendly and attentive. The room had a good standard and was as advertised. For Norwegian standards the bathroom was very good.

Stated two days for anniversary. It is a gem of a location, as is the town itself. Terrace bar and restaurant is a great place just to watch the boats on the water. Food very good and better value than Oslo prices. Rooms basic but clean and those on the east side of hotel have the views over the sea.... More

We had a wonderful view over the ocean from our hotel room. The hotel is a walking distance from a cosy irish bar, great restaurant (Kast los), and the hotel staff are friendly and helpful. Our room did now have a refrigerator, and the breakfast was a real disappointment. On the other hand, the great location and friendly staff make... More

Kast Loss restaurant have had a new management during the last year. They have gradually improved the service and some of the interior. They have kept the nice maritime elements from the past. The restaurant serves a limited a ’la carte menu with both local fish and game. The food was well prepared and very tasty. During the last months... More

If you want a really good dinner this is the place to go!! Their danish chef Sören is passionate about what he serves and you can taste that. Super friendly service. If you want something with even more atmosphere you can take their boat out to the Lighthouse island Stangholmen and eat at the restaurant there. This is truly spectacular,... More

We got married on the island of Stangholmen outside Risor the 7th of July and had a real international wedding with guests coming from all over Europe. Most of the wedding guests stayed in Risor hotell, so did my husband and I, and we also did a bbq for over 50 people there on the day after the wedding -... More

When you stop in Risør, its for the town, not for the hotel. As destinations go, Risør can be from great to uttrely drab - it is very much a summer place, with events like the annual wooden boats festival, and various cultural happenings all through the summer months. The location couldn't be better; it's right on the seafront, just... More

Nice hotel in a old building by the sea and in the sent er of Risør. We were lucky and got a room with a really nice sea view. The service is good and the room was clean. The hotel has a really nice back yard with a nice restaurant also with sea view. Nice location and service. Average rooms... More

Me and my family stayed the whole weekend attending a wedding on this same hotel. We visited this hotel for the first time a couple of years ago. The standard at that time was not particularly good, so this time I didn't expect to much. I must say I was quite surprised when we arrived. I learned that the hotel... More
