If you are flying in you can walk to the hotel which is just 2 KM from the terminal. Stavanger is the oil capital of Norway and you will notice the large helicopters supporting the offshore rigs flying in and out of the airport. The hotel is historic and the atmosphere inside the walls transcends time with a fire offering... More

Stayed here for a conference and thoroughly enjoyed myself. The food and the ambience at Sola Strand hotel is nothing but remarkable. The staff's passion for their jobs, the service minded attitude of the employees, the beautiful location next to the beach - top notch all together! Will definetely return to try the spa on another occasion.

Our daughter is working in Stavanger and had treated us to a weekend at the Sola Strand Hotel which is celebrating 100 years in business this year when we visited her last month. Interestingly the business was set up some time ago as a hotel trainee establishment and the level of service was good. It clearly has history and manages... More

Went with a friend for one night to relax and use the spa. We first got an old room just over the reception and went down to change to a room closer to the spa. The staff was friendly and helpful but the room we got was still in the old part of the hotel and the bathroom was really... More

This hotel is a nice place to stay for a Stavanger-weekend. It's a short drive to the city centre with restaurants and sights. Still the hotel is located in a quiet area surrounded by beach (very rare in Norway). Short drive to other beaches as well. The Sola beach is among the best beaches in Norway. Highly recommend a session... More

As a birthday gift, friends had clubbed together and bought myself and 2 others spa vouchers for Sola Strand, so we thought we would take advantage of the spa and combine it with a night in the hotel. The spa itself is lovely and we all had fantastic treatments. The only disappointment with the spa was after loosing my engagement... More

Sited close to the airport but right on a great beach, this hotel proved an excellent base with top class conferencing facilities for a company event. The quality of the fixtures and fittings, the excellent food, the spa/pool, and the friendly 5 star service all added together to make it a great place to spend a few days. The buffet... More

We stayed at the hotel for a weekend, attending a 50 years wedding aniversary. Fantastic food, and great staff. Hotel location more or less on the beach, gave plenty of nature and fresh air. Spa area with hot tub and different saunas was a real plus.

Booked this hotel as the wedding was held here. Nice airport hotel but nothing else around. It was very close to the beach so nice to go for a walk and very handy for the airport. Staff were pleasant but didn't go out of there way to help with any issues.
