“Typical Norwegian chain-hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2009

Located in Asgardstrand as small "village" by the sea in Norway. Nice location for those who likes to be near the sea, but nothing much to do here. A couple of restaurant is mostly what the place has to offer, but during summer its an ok spot. In winter though I would think that the whole place is dead.

Rooms were mediocre but clean. I never like to be on the ground floor, but nothing else was available. Twin beds never optimal when travelling with your girlfriend, but the size was ok.

We also tried the restaurant and although the food was brilliant, we waited over an hour for only a main course. Several other guests reacted to this as the restaurant wasn't very full, and we were told that the reason was that they only had one chef at work. Not our problem really, but I got a beer on the house and as it was the first day of our vacation, time was the only thing we had enough of :)

All in all this is your typical Norwegian hotel, but for those travelling with children, it's worth to mention that they are part of the Thon Hotels childrens club during summer, which always are popular.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2009

This is a pretty basic hotel in a very small town with nothing else there. The only place to eat at is the hotel restaurant, or to drive to Horten, or Tonsberg. Its very quiet. This hotel is right on the water, situated directly across from the harbor (for personal boats). It is a Thon "conference" hotel and has conference rooms.

The hotel had remodeling construction when I was there at the end of Feb 2009.

The room was simple and clean. 2 twin beds, a small desk, sofa, small TV, and bathroom with tub/shower.

The breakfast was continental with a few Norwegian extras (pickled herring, boiled eggs, etc..), on a day with few hotel visitors. But had scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage also when there was a conference group staying at the hotel.

Internet access is via Telenor, the norwegian communications company and is a pay to connect deal.

Stayed at this hotel one night during a seminar with my workplace.

This is a Thon Conference hotel, and it has a very nice location. My room was in the third floor, with a view towards the sea. The size of the room was ok, and it had a single queen bed. The bathroom looked like it was newly renovated. The hotel also had free Internet. The inly problem with the room was that it was very warm.

This hotel is located right in front of a marina. From my room I hade a wonderful view over the fjord, especially at sunset - just incredible.
The staff was very nice and helpful. The Scandinavian breakfast buffet was good. The rooms spacey and very clean. A hotel I really can recommend.
