“A pearl on the southern coast of Norway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2010

I visited this beautiful spot as part of a Business trip and was struck by the beauty of the place. The hotel is a set of houses located around a little bay. It looks like a tiny settlement. I had a small apartment overlooking the sea (the hotel states that all rooms do). It is also possible to get larger suites and a whole house.
The apartment in itself was nothing special. No bathtub, just a shower. The bedroom was located toward the back of the building and as I had a ground floor apartment, there was no view and just small windows. All in all, just the kind of standard you could expect from an apartment hotel.
But the location... Wow! I had a morning stroll before breakfast and the place is just stunning. Small lighthouses, clear blue water. Fantastic!
May not be ideal with toddlers, as the aparments are located right down by the sea and there is little safeguarding.
We ate lunch, dinner and breakfast at the hotel restaurant. Excellent food! Particularly the sea food. A little reserved service, but not bad.
All in all.. a fantastic spot! I`m returning with my family some day, but it may be wise to avoid the high season. I can easily belive it to be very crowded then.
