“Excellent hotel near Stavanger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

I was lucky enough to spend several nights here with work. Hotel is really charming. Views are lovely. Staff great. Food really excellent. Service is brilliant. Beds very comfortable. I imagine it wasn't cheap but you are extremely well taken care of. Would be delighted to return!

Room Tip: For slightly quieter ask for one away from the patio / outside seated area

We loved the authentic country feel of this family run hotel. We felt at home and were treated as honoured guests in this warm and inviting home. The food was exceptional and the hotel itself very interesting with its artefacts and memorabilia of comfortable country life.

Simply lovely! That is how we describe our favourite hotel in Norway. If you are lucky enough to be staying here you know what I mean. Not only is it cozy, it is so clean you could literally eat off the floors. Speaking of eating, the food is delicious as well.

Second time at the Kronen Gaard. It is very expensive but for the 2nd time they gave me discounted price because I stayed for en entire week. The service at the hotel is fantastic. The hotel staff is trained to give the best service and they all seem happy and enthusiastic. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are adequate size and beds very comfortable and excellent wireless internet connection. I was very happy and satisfied and will definitely stay here again if I can get a discounted price. The regular price is around $300 a nite which is too stiff for me but not unusual in Norway....u need a car to get to and from this hotel. It is about 4 kilometers outside Sandnes. I love the rural area around it and am not a city person anyway and always travel with a car...so keep that in mind

We were very lucky to be upgraded to this hotel when another alternative was overbooked. Our bedroom cost was considerably less than a normal price so the feeling of a great stay was amplified.

Positives about here:
- Location is very much on the way to Preikestolen (the Pulpit rock), and is quiet in a nice grassy area out of the city.
- Rooms are spacious
- architecture and feeling of the place is classic yet integrated nicely with a modern feeling.
- Food is excellent. Dinner and Breakfast
- parking and free wifi are more than satisfactory.
- Staff are friendly and very helpful

Negatives
- You might find this to be too out of the way. A car is absolutely necessary as there is nothing within walking distance.
- The rack rate is rather steep (I gather) but even still the value for money in my opinion is great compared to other options in Norway
- Not all rooms have coffee & tea facilities (surprising by true)

My workplace hosted the annual Christmas party at Kronen Gaard.
We got served with some great food. If I remember correctly we started it of with some welcome drinks. Got some small appetizers. Then we dug into some good steak, and finished it of with some delicious cake. The staff at the restaurant was nice and friendly and very helpful. Kronen Gaard is an old hotel/restaurant. And it feels that way when you are there, but in a very cozy way. The dining rooms were beautiful. You kinda feel like your in an old movie when you are there.
The outside looks very nice, with a huge tree in the front that looks amazing.
All in all a very good experience with the place. I haven't slept there, only visited the restaurant. But by the looks of the whole place, I think your up for a good nights sleep.
It is very close to the main road, but during the night it wasn't really any traffic.

We booked the hotel for a planning workshop.

The hotel had all the business facilities we needed, dinner was very good and the rooms comfortable.

I would be happy to stay here for a vacation and use it as a base for exploring the fiords of Rogaland.

Very good.
