“Lovely hotel in Sandefjord”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

We stayed at Clarion Collection Hotel Atlantic for two nights and we were very happy with that choice. The hotel is located in a nice area in the center of the city. The hotel has a good atmosphere and the staff were both kind and helpful. Because of a misunderstanding in the room ordering process, our room was upgraded at no extra cost from an ordinary room to a large suite with bathtub and that was of course excellent. :)

Included in the price was breakfast, waffles in the evening and evening meal. In addition there were fruit/coffee/tea available for the guests 24/7.

Stayed at Atlantic for twelve nights with my sister and husband, while visiting family and friends in Sandefjord.They met all our needs, all we had to do is ask, they made us feel welcome. The rooms were nice and clean and the beds were comfortable, the bathrooms are big. We never missed the afternoon waffles and coffee wish was great and the buffet was wonderful. Thank you Atlantic for a wonderful stay in Sandefjord..

The Atlantic is a special place. It is part museum - Sandefjord used to be the center of whaling in the Antarctic and the hotel contains many artifacts and pictures from that era. The location is ideal. You can easily walk to and from the station even with a suitcase.

The higher prices rooms a great, even gorgeous in some cases. Spacious and with very comfortable and well equipped bathrooms. The beds are exceptionally comfortable. Our only wish for something extra would be a retractable mirror for shaving/ make-up.

The breakfast, while not lavish, is pleasant, served as a buffet downstairs where the are a series of little rooms for eating. The free supper, basic but adequate, is much appreciated as are the free waffles in the afternoon. We stay in a range of hotels during the year, but irrespective of price range this is our favourite. Excellent value for money.

I've been to Hotel Atlantic a number of times now and it has always been a pleasant experience. The rooms are well furnished. I love their wonderful beds and the big, modern bathrooms with glass shower stalls. The rooms are not huge, but the bathrooms are large. I appreciate the wardrobe space, the desk and Wifi work well. The TV is hung on the wall and doesn't get in the way.

The breakfast and free evening snack is great and unlike what I've had at other hotels. A good combination of breads, cereals, fruits, meats, dairy products, etc. I always look forward to breakfast at this hotel!

The hotel is centrally located in Sandefjord. It is one of the most, if not the most original hotel I have stayed. The furniture and the enviroment are neat and cozy, but also extremely interesting since the hotel is actually a whaling history museum. Dining and breakfast rooms are also in line with the theme and very pleasant. The evening meal is nothing special, but well presented as a buffet and it certainly server the purpose.
The only minor flaw are the small bathroom towels and the lack of hairdryer in the room.
Like most of the hotels or B&B in Norway, it good value only for Norwegians and their salary.

Here you can stay at a great hotel with a touch of the history from the city and its whaling industry. Lots of stuff on display here. See how it was on board on one of the large ships. Norwegian waffles served every day....
Good location down town Sandefjord. with an Indian restaurant just across the street + and good sushi down on the next block, 1 block down from the train station. 10-15 minutes walk down to the docks.
Nice clean and well maintained rooms. Friendly and helpful staff.
Elevator... Doesn't have a pool or a spa though..
The bar in the basement is not recommended, filled up with local drunks....

Room Tip: Less street noise higher up
