Stayed only one night. This is a good hotel. It is very close to several businesses, particularly Statoil. (Walking distance). It is also a very short ride from the airport.the room is nice and comfortable, it had the feel if being newly redone. Restaurant offered a fairly varied menu, and the breakfast was good.

There's not too many alternatives for lodgings at Forus, but it doesn't really matter. Scandic Stavanger Forus is a good hotel. The rooms are quite nice and modern, the staff is friendly, the gym is okay and everything is neat and clean. If you're staying several nights, the restaurant is more than alright, and I've never had a reason to... More

I have stayed here twice now both for business reasons. I can't fault the hotel, it is very clean and the rooms are amazingly comfortable. The bar area is nice and relaxing and show the major football games when its on. The guy serving in the bar is always very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The restaurant serves... More

We called into the hotel (as non-residents) on a Sunday morning for a change to cooking our usual full breakfast and it was such a pleasure. My husband, two children (aged 6 & 8) and I had a fantastic breakfast that was great value for money. The breakfast consisted of an excellent selection of cold cuts (sliced meats, cheeses, plus...

I stayed at this hotel for 13 nights and I was so impressed with the kindness, friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.The rooms were clean and fresh. Breakfast was everything you could wish for and more if you asked. The evening meal was a little limited but with the addition of 2 specials each day it was more than adequate.... More

I had gone for a business trip. It is a standard business hotel but not the most ideal location. It is close to business park but otherwise it is in the middle of nowhere. If you are spending weekend, there is nothing to do. You need to travel 20 minutes to town center to go out to eat as kitchen... More

This hotel is fresh and clean and the rooms are decorated with style. The drawbacks are the lack of a mini bar, bathroom toiletries and when I was there you could not buy bottles of water. All in all the hotel is better than most Stavanger hotels, many of which seem tired and in desperate need of refurbishment.

Stayed for a week on a business trip. The hotel is located in an industrial zone. There are no shopping centres within easy walking distance and the weather was actually quite stormy when I was there. Taxis are very expensive - not the hotel's fault. There is a shopping mall, Kvadrat, a fair distance from the hotel and sadly there... More
