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

We booked to stay here as part of a weekend kayaking trip round the nearby islands and were just blown away by the style, character and comfort. We stayed in a suite just out of town and cycled in, using the hotel's bicycles for meals and company. The Sjomanns suite is beautifully decorated and has a cosy "Welcome home" feel... More

Thank you for the very kind review, great to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the Henriksen Suite! Also thank you for the feedback about breakfast, we now offer a good breakfast in Seilet beside reception, instead of the self service breakfast provided in the suites, we still provide tea & coffee in the suite.

We stumbled upon Det Lille Hotel in October 2012 by chance and as we had not booked in advance were surprised to find that they had vacancies which met our requirements of being able to provide for myself, my mother and my grandmotherin one easy access self catering apartment. The business owner was exceptionally accomodating as were other staff, we... More

Really nice hotel in a charming old town. The rooms are spread around the place, they are converted houses and apartments, furnished with period pieces from the shipping era of the last two centuries. Incredibly well done, spacious, warm and welcoming, loads of room to entertain. I can honestly say I can't remember a more charming hotel room and I... More

The small hotel in Risør is a very charming and different hotel. Each suite is different, but they all have a marine interior which makes it's very special. They are very well equiped and it's perfect for a longer stay if you wanted to take care of the meals by yourself. Or of course eat out in Risør if you... More
