“Excellent hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Blooming hotel on a Saturday. It was really busy in the hotel, but the staff was efficient, quick and super friendly. The lobby of the hotel is very welcoming and the coffee and tea they serve are a real treat!
Our room was spacious, light and clean. The bathroom was beautiful and had an an enormous bathtub. The only minor remark we could think of was that the TV was small compared to the size of the room.
Although it was a bit crowded during Sunday morning breakfast there was everything your heart could desire. My boyfriend especially enjoyed the freshly baked waffles!
We will definitely return to this lovely hotel!

Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

Nice atmosphere in the hotel as well as in the restaurant. Friendly and helpful staff. Very good and extremely comfortable beds. Prices for diner not cheap but very good food. Free WLAN and very good breakfast. Sauna unfortunately far too cold and only one shower but nice indoor pool (both included in the room rate).

This is a great weekend getaway location. The hotel looks very stylish and has a very cozy breakfast/ restaurant area. We had a clean but relatively small room with a nice view on the small pond in the center of the hotel. The buffet breakfast was very good and had a wide variety of choices. The pool is beautiful and has a decent size. The hotel is located in the forest/ dunes at about 20 minutes walking distance from the center of Bergen.

The hotel is very big with a lot of possibilities for meetings etc. I would classify it as a high-end businesshotel. I wouldn't stay there for a romantic trip, although it is very close to the sea and the dunes and the hotel does offer options for couples. When I was there, there were a few business-groups which makes the atmosphere different than when there are just families or couples.
Food is great, service is perfect. The room and bathroom were very nice: comfortable, quite luxurious, clean and spacious enough.
A lot of parking space so that's convenient.

The Blooming Hotel is also used for business meetings. I stayed in the hotel for two days (one night). The location is perfect close to the dunes and the beach in a woody area. It is not very easy to reach if you need public transport. The food was great. The room, we had a more luxurious room, is large. The bathroom is modern but when I took a shower the bathroom floor was wet all over. There is Wifi in the hotel but it is very slow. I could not use Skype because of the low speed.

I would recommend this hotel if you want to be close to the beach and bring your own car. Keep in mind that on weekdays there will be lots of business people on a training or seminar. Weekends will be different. They offer a variety of rooms some of them with jaccuzi.

Room Tip: Go for the more luxurious rooms.

Second time in one month in hotel Blooming. First for work, than took husband and kids via a deal on travelbird.nl. The hotel is great for a family getaway with kids. (also good for a romantic weekend with partner, or work meeting, but that is a different type of review). There is a pool, a playroom with movies, good kids menu, a good enough restaurant to eat out for two nights while kids are in bed, a fun bar with good wine list and cocktails. On top of that great surroundings, immediate access to dunes and forest for walking or running. A couple of km's from the beach and the cute town of Bergen. Recommended! and I will be back. Only negative part is that the doors on the first floor (don;t know about the others) are very thin and with large openings at the bottom which makes you wake up as soon as the first family walks through the hall in the morning or when the last ones go to bed in the evening. Tip for management: a fitness room would be a nice addition, or Saturday morning Yoga class (tip...)

Stayed for one night, very peacefull location near to woods, room was a double for single occupancy... The room had a double bed which just fit in the room, if there would have been two of us it would be a tight fit, the restaurant served fantastic food with a set price menu which was very good value.
The bar staff were friendly and chatty if needed, the breakfast was a buffet style with a great variety of hot and cold foods.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a decent sized double room... It's worth it if staying for more than one n...
