This hotel is in a very central location in Sandnes. Close to restaurants. Very cozy hotel in general. Good service. Food is good, but nothing very special. Rooms are not great for working in if you are a business traveler, unless you are one of those hippies who can work sitting in a lotus position in bed. All in all a nice place to stay. Very pleasant staff.

Staff were pleasant and hotel in good location for train station. Room was very dark and not great for working in the hotel, could do with better lighting and a decent chair to sit on when working in the hotel. Food was a little disappointing.

Do not consider staying another place than Gamlaværket in Sandnes! It is a historical hotel, with cool and spacious rooms. Hotel combined with an excellent restaurant and cafè. Manuel and his crew were great, and gave us impressive service all weekend. I celebrated my birthday there, and all of the guests were excited by the place. Gamlaværket is located just 50 meters from Sandnes train stadion, so it is easy to go back and forth to Stavanger as well. For a special stay, choose Gamlaværket.

This hotel is in town, so its convenient to shopping and restaurants. Parking could be an issue, however we were able to park around the corner and it was free from 7 pm - 9 am. Our room was roomy and clean. They could use some luggage racks to put suitcases on. We had to use the desk and a chair. The bathroom had a nicely sized shelf for personal items and a larger than normal shower. Limited space for shower items in the shower. The shower sprayer wasn't secure so it kept sliding down. Breakfast was very good and the breakfast area is quaint and very nice. Staff is very friendly and welcoming!

Arrived late due to train delays, was received in a warm reception teeming with life and happy sounds from all kinds of people out on a pre-Christmas spree. The atmosphere grabbed me instantly, totally changing my mood. Was attracted to a sign on the counter: Upgrade NOK 200. Asked what that would mean, and a very charming and smiling guy just winked and said "I'll fix that!"...and up I went...to find the hotel suite...all to myself! Not since The Luxor in Las Vegas have I been in a room this size, and not since the Seychelles such luxury; separate bubble bath, and toilet w/shower, check my photos! Alas, hunger got me, so down to the restaurant where I had a super meal of panfried cod loin on pea puree with condiments + a huge glass of Chablis (not this amount anywhere here in Oslo) before a traditional Christmas dessert of creamed rice pudding with berry sauce. YUMMY! Then up and into the bubble bath. All staff members were great, smiling, helpful and efficient. This was a total pleasure and I highly recommend a visit to anyone with business near Sandnes.
