Spent one overnight stay with a friend. It is on an Island that has no traffic, which was good for me. The little ferry took us across and we were met my car to take us up to the hotel. It was very quiet and not many people at this time of the year, that worked for us. We were

Alcohol and spa hotel is a super poor combo. We hardly got any sleep due to paper thin walls. Felt like we took party in the neighbor’s pre dinner party and their late night / early morning fighting about said party. Another party woke us with their 3 am disco. Choo hooo our

We booked our trip very shortly and had to take our dogs with is. When I called they sayed yes they have 1 room where dogs are allowed. They didn’t tell us that you have to go there by a very small ferry and leave the car behind. My dogs have never been on a small boat, they

We are very sorry you feel this way. We can not have dogs in every room, that`s why we only have one room for travellers with dogs. The ferry have been and will allways be there, we are situated on an island. This information is available everywhere, but maybe our reception could have made it more clear when you spoke to them. We are currently redecorating many of the rooms, but we are a private hotell, and have to take things one thing at a time. We are glad to hear you enjoyd the food. And we do hope you come back to visit some other time :) We often have special offers on accommodations- i hope you are in better luck next time, with both the weather and an upgraded room.

Don’t stay here if you are vegetarian or have any dietary requirements. They are unable to provide decent options and make you feel uncomfortable for asking. Rooms are alright. Nothing special. Staff not very helpful.

We are sorry you feel this way, and that your experience was not better. We do have options for vegetarians and dietary requirements - but i am glad you told us, so we can take a look at what we offer, and maybe do something else for people visiting in the time to come. Maybe you have a suggestion to what we can offer? We will definitly take another look at the menu.

The beautiful place HANKØ is on that island. I was transported from land with ferry. The hotel I had booked in to, was not what I expected. They claim 4 stars, that is not true. I was hungry, but the restaurant were closed. I had to go down to the harbour to get a meal and it

Dear janeckehauger, Thank you for your feedback. If you have seen here on Tripadvisor that we have 4 stars it is because travellers have rated us with 4 stars. We have not rated ourselves With this. During July Our main restaurant has been closed but Our a la carte restaurant in the habour is open every day from 1 - 10 pm. Sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with the food there. We hope that you are enjoying your summer and that you might visit us again some time.

Hi Sorry for Our late response. I do not fully understand Your question. We do have transportation on the island, from the Ferry an up to the hotel (about 500 m), but we do not offer transportation from the city and back. We can be helpful With ordering taxi. Hope this answer Your question. Best regards Alexander

You cannot bring a car to Hankö. There are no cars on the island. Park the car, and take the ferry over. The sound you cross is just 200 meters. I can’t remember what the fee for the ferry is, but it won’t break your budget. Probably 50 NOK max
