Thank you for a great experience, beautiful place, the staff were really friendly and the food was amazing. If you are passing by or are thinking to spend some days in the region I would highly recommend it. The decoration is nice and the rooms are simple but enough. Our room didn't have a private bathroom but the bathroom was... More

This "hidden 5-star" hotel in Lyngdal, Southern Norway, is packed with antiques, old tools and travel bags being used 100 years ago. All displayed and available for a closer look and to be touched. With the photos from first half of the 1900, the place gives the visitors a feeling of entering into, and becoming a part of a historic... More

17 friends invaded all rooms for a week end in August. Our stay was thoroughly planned in advance together with the hotel management, and all our expectations were satisfied. We all enjoyed a friendly, humorous and personal treatment, as well as delicious food from local ingredients, with a Danish touch. The facilities of the rooms are quite modest, but what... More

This is a small late 1900 century very much original hotel. 10 rooms with only two en suite. The area is not good for much less than recreation , hiking and fishing, but the hotel itself is well worth the detour. The restaurant serves very good food and. You will not get many other places that takes you back in... More

Stepping into the Paulsens Hotell is a little like time-travel. The hotel is beautifully maintained and full of artifacts with an interesting history - the proprietor kindly told us a few stories which were very entertaining. They serve enormous, delicious meals, and the rooms were cozy, clean, and comfortable. 5/5

The hotel is very unusual compared to anything we stayed in Norway. The owners took great care to restore the house to its original state. As we were a group of 8 people we occupied 5 different rooms, and all were different. Even if the house is filled with antiques the beds were very comfortable and the matresses seemed quite... More

An old fashioned wonderful hotel kept in the way it was in the beginning of last century. Interesting place to stay, and the hosts were warm and pleasant. Great "homemade" food. Situated in the centre of Lyngdal and very close to both shopping and areas for retreat such as walking paths close to the river.

one of a kind a true historic hotel. So welcoming. Do not look for luxury comfort. This is about being true to the way it was way back when.. Be sure to get Bent and/ or Jimmy to tell you about the history of the hotel and the supernatural incidents that have taken place in the hotel. Wonderful traditional food.... More

On our trip through Norway, my friends and I stayed at the Paulsens Hotell & Cafe for one night, and exhausted as we were we stayed up until midnight having a great time karaokeing. The owners are great hosts with lots of humour, and we enjoyed our stay very much. The interior is unique and charming, we slept well and... More

This was a great stop along the way. I was there with my fiance, we both loved the old norwegian farmer romantics that was going on there. Antique furniture, home made meals, drinks and sweets that all tasted great. The help even weared old time made costumes that really gave it the authenticity to complete the theme. The thing I...
