The Scandic Rock City hotel is located right by the sea front. Nice view from my room. Compact but clean room and nice bed. Welcoming staff and nice breakfast is important to business travellers. Free parking.

When we booked a view room, we were hoping for a fjord view but got a view of a parking lot and a fairly busy roundabout instead. Some noise in the room from traffic going through the roundabout. Room was large and modern and very bright, but could use better curtains for non-scandanavian visitors who aren't used to almost 24... More

Hotel: the rooms were very quiet (we were on the sixth floor facing the street, but all scandics tend to have very soundproof rooms). The beds and pillows were very comfortable (typical Norwegian hotel bedding). Wifi was free and of good quality. Breakfast: excellent ! Yogurt, eggs, breads, some pastries. Nothing to order. Beware: if you want to sneak out... More

Fantastic service. Comfortable beds. Small, but very nice room. Good size bathroom. Our grandchildren were very happy to get their own room (secluded to ours) in stead of extra beds. Perfect! They loved the musical theme decorations. And the breakfast-buffet was a real hit. But the children's menu might have room for improvements. Burgers and sossages are not every child's... More

This hotel is centrally located in the small town of Namsos, where there aren't many hotel alternatives to my knowledge. It is founded on the concept of "Trønderrock", which has become an identifying feature of the area, as several artists who mixes rock with local culture have their roots in Namsos. The hotel is located together with a permanent rock... More

Location right on the water front with huge panoramic windows very friendly and warm welcome. The Rock theme was quite amusing but did not detract from the quality of the hotel. We had booked evening meal and breakfast but on arrival told the restaurant was not open so given a voucher to visit Tinos across the road which was excellent
