We spent two nights in the Konvoi Suite. The suite is very large, with a kitchen, living room, bathroom, downstairs toilet and two bedrooms. One bedroom has a double bed, the other twin beds. There is also a small rollaway bed downstairs, but we didn't try it. If someone is planning on using this bed, they better not mind a... More

Small nice city with small house knitted nicely together. This hotel has then joined some of this houses together as suites and small apartments. With a small lounge in the middle were we parked our motorcycles, and had our beers and told each other lies and stories of our abilities to drive these machines. We got better and better as...

My husband and I were searching for his family roots. However, we had very little information. That was no deterrent for Christopher. He got on the phone, called some important people and before we knew it, we were meeting the lovely lady that lives on the family farm. We were given the choice of two flats and decided on the...

Tried out Det Lille Hotel with my family. Stayed at the NAL Suite. I truly love the concept of this hotel, having various flats and suits scattered all over the small village of Risør. The NAL Suite was a real treat. It was a walk-in museum full of artifacts from the heydays of the Norwegian-American Line. Spacious and comfortable in... More

We enjoyed a fantastic 3 night stay in the S/Y Ceres Suite. Beautifully decorated with a cool modern / antiques style - I would think its the nicest place to stay in Risor. Brand new throughout the suite felt very luxurious. Perfect location for us in centre of Risør above reception (and breakfast room yet private and quiet). Lovely terrace... More

We just concluded one of the best vacations of our lives as a family, where we spent almost a month in Norway. A big part of our experience was spending time in the beautiful town of Risor, located around 3 hours drive south of Oslo. We stayed there a week to attend the Kammermusikkfest chamber music festival which is held... More

At Det Lille Hotell you get your own appartement, well equipped, and, all of them, very nice. The sutes in Sentrum is all located in the middle of the center of Risør. I could choose to have my breakfast delivered to my door, or have the breakfast in the breakfastroom.

We stayed in one of the town Centre "suites" for a few days. We were travelling as a family of two adults and three kids aged 12,10 &8. Risør is a great base to discover this part of Southern Norway. We found some fantastic local walks using ut.no and the islands were a firm favourite. The accommodation was a great... More

We stayed here Aug1-5 for the wooden boat festival and then a couple days after. The pics on the website give a perfect/accurate glimpse of what you'll get when you arrive! Beautiful, elegant rooms from the '1860s that make you feel like you live there. The breakfast in the main building is perfection, the food is great and the atmosphere... More

....arguably more B&B (with an optional &B) than hotel. But with expectations understood it's a quite unique and enjoyable experience. I don't wish to be unfair/harsh in writing this, but I would prefer here to other normal 'hotels'. Read the other full reviews that say how it works but I would recommend it when you understand it. The rooms are... More

Thanks for the nice review and glad you enjoyed your stay! Breakfast is optional because guests have a full kitchen in the suite and some prefer to make breakfast themselves. We do not offer dinner but good restaurants are a short walk away from the suites, and guests can order some room service, for example a seafood platter delivered to... More
