We enjoyed a fantastic 3 night stay in the S/Y Ceres Suite. Beautifully decorated with a cool modern / antiques style - I would think its the nicest place to stay in Risor. Brand new throughout the suite felt very luxurious. Perfect location for us in centre of Risør above reception (and breakfast room yet private and quiet). Lovely terrace... More

We just concluded one of the best vacations of our lives as a family, where we spent almost a month in Norway. A big part of our experience was spending time in the beautiful town of Risor, located around 3 hours drive south of Oslo. We stayed there a week to attend the Kammermusikkfest chamber music festival which is held... More

At Det Lille Hotell you get your own appartement, well equipped, and, all of them, very nice. The sutes in Sentrum is all located in the middle of the center of Risør. I could choose to have my breakfast delivered to my door, or have the breakfast in the breakfastroom.

We stayed in one of the town Centre "suites" for a few days. We were travelling as a family of two adults and three kids aged 12,10 &8. Risør is a great base to discover this part of Southern Norway. We found some fantastic local walks using ut.no and the islands were a firm favourite. The accommodation was a great... More

We stayed here Aug1-5 for the wooden boat festival and then a couple days after. The pics on the website give a perfect/accurate glimpse of what you'll get when you arrive! Beautiful, elegant rooms from the '1860s that make you feel like you live there. The breakfast in the main building is perfection, the food is great and the atmosphere... More

....arguably more B&B (with an optional &B) than hotel. But with expectations understood it's a quite unique and enjoyable experience. I don't wish to be unfair/harsh in writing this, but I would prefer here to other normal 'hotels'. Read the other full reviews that say how it works but I would recommend it when you understand it. The rooms are... More

D_Arnesen, Manager at Det Lille Hotel, responded to this review

Thanks for the nice review and glad you enjoyed your stay! Breakfast is optional because guests have a full kitchen in the suite and some prefer to make breakfast themselves. We do not offer dinner but good restaurants are a short walk away from the suites, and guests can order some room service, for example a seafood platter delivered to... More

This was our first time staying over night in Risor, and we decided to stay 2 nights at Det Lille Hotel due to the good reviews on TripAdvisor. It was just wonderful! The hotel has suites on different places around town and we stayed in an old historic building in Buvika, in the Styrmannssuite. The suite is a small home... More

We were encouraged to book this hotel in the south after a successful visit to Tromso last year. We were not disappointed. The hotel comprises a number of suites around Risor with breakfast and administration taking place in the central hotel unit. We were made most welcome from the start and the accommodation is of an excellent standard. We quickly... More

We picked this hotel simply because we wanted to break our drive from Oslo to Stavanger where we were taking a boat to Bergen. Risør was recommended in a guide book as a good place to visit on the south coast and there were only two hotels in town to choose from. We booked for one night and ended up... More
