This hotel was very big with a nice spa area and a great restaurant. The room had good Scandic standard with a big bed and a nice bathroom. The restaurant was very good with a nice buffet with so much food. The ala carte was just as good and the staff very nice and friendly. I would recommend this hotel

Avoid the ground floor! Hotel: The hotel is situated in the city centre. Close to everything. The hotel is old but it does not feel too... More

I spent a night here and tried all the meals, excpet breakfast. I was unable to try the breakfast because my mobile was out of battery. In order to turn off the lights I had to use the main switch... this also turned off the outlets:) The rooms are in need of modernization, but it was clean and pleasant. I... More

We arrived late evening after 3 hours drive, and was hungry. So we ordered what they called "romservice". HA! They called on the phone and said you can come pick up your food. But two plates with food and beverage is a little to much carrying for one person, so I guessed since I'm at a hotel you get some... More

There is no reasonably priced place to say in Forde, even for Norway. The prices are inflated. Compared to Oslo, there is some weird 25% premium on really crappy hotels. The breakfast buffet was nice and the service was OK (although completely out of the blue at check-out the man said that I should book through their website instead of... More

The dinner (buffet) had a wide variety and it was good. But for this price i expected a little bit more.... More

The hotel looks tired, especially the room I stayed in. About the room : the windows had no way of staying open as it was breezy outside. The décor is old, the furniture outdated and scuffed. For a business trip, it's fine but I wouldn't rush back. The staff are very pleasant and attentive, and the food good.

Nice spacious rooms. Agree a little dated especially the gym but clean and good facilities. Staff friendly and helpful - booked us in for an additional night on arrival which was good! Not a bad location too! Generally, we recommend the hotel!

We chose this hotel as we were travelling with our dog, and there were no problems when checking in. There are a couple of nice walkways around the hotel for an evening walk especially near... More
