“Nice hotel in the heart of Tønsberg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

This is a nice hotel located on the docks of Tønsberg.
The room has a high standard, service is excellent and the restaurant has a good location on the pier.

The only thing that is negative about this hotel is that it has no parking that are reserved for the hotel guest, so you need to find and pay for your parking space. Mine was across the street and cost 105 NOK from 9 o´clock in the evening to 7 o´clock in the morning. That is expensive.

Bisdes the parking, this is a excellent hotel that i really can recommend.

I did not eat in the restaurant, because it was full. I had a ckicken at Papparazzi, wich is also located on the pier. Great by the way :)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

Not a large choice of Hotels, but this is simply the best one for me. The staff are extremely polite and effective, the rooms are very small (did not notice once I was asleep) and you can have a good breakfast. I am told that meals inside are good, but I ate along the boardwalk/riverfront which the hotel sits on.

If I was visiting for more than a few days or not on my own, I would find the room too small, and the twin singles a bit of a pain. But for a two night singleton -it's enough (just).

Norwegian prices, but hey, this is a very nice part of a very nice country. I would have been suprised if the prices didn't make my eyes water.

Room Tip: Something facing the water, and with a real double if you are a couple.

I stayed at Thon Hotel Brygga when visiting "IT-Tinget 2011". The hotel is nicely situated on the pier in Tønsberg. Through the front door, and you are breathing in fresh sea air on the pier.
I stayed in a small single bedroom, and it was exactly what I needed. The room wasn´t large, but it does what it is supposed to.
I would definately use this hotel again!

Room Tip: Ask to have a room at the short end of the building, or else yiou will be staring into the houses ne...

Clean and comfortable. Small single room was very compact, but the bed was very comfortable indeed - great night's sleep. Ate at the restaurant in the hotel and the food was excellent. Breakfast was also plentiful and very good. Staff were friendly. No complaints.

Tonsberg is expensive so this isn't a cheap stay hotel, but the location on the marina is great. Plenty of nearby drink / food options and close to the towns nice shopping area.
Would recommend room 216 (more spacious room) which overlooks the water & gives sunset views. Wonderful swing open windows allow you to sit on comfortable chairs and enjoy the views. Note - pint of beer & glass of wine = £10 each at the hotel or almost any place on the marina. Take the hit on your wallet and enjoy yourself, and consider how cheap drinking will be when you get home !!!!

Room Tip: Room 216, corner room facing west for sunsets.

I stayed at this hotel a couple times in November for business. It is a nice clean hotel sitting on the water front, but still just a short walk away from the train station. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay, but what really stands out is the very service minded staff.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2010

Very nice hotel for shorter holiday stays.
We got a special price and stayd at the suite "Færder" having direct view towards the harbour.
We travelled with children of 3 & 6 years of age and one baby.

Closeby the hotel you finde a lot of restaurants along the harbour, and the harbour is full of life through the weekends and all summer.
But because of the hotels position the nightlife is not noticable from inside the hotel (more noice at night at the Choice hotel)

If you want to stay sentral you either choose this or the Choice hotel on the other end of harbour.
I like better this hotel because it is more "home" and a lot smaller (less crowded). The price is also lower.

The breakfast was OK based on the size of hotel. (Scrabled eggs, hardboiled and soft eggs, sausages, meatballs was present)

Also the people who worked at the hotel was very friendly.

I would chooce the hotel again next time.
