I have now stayed here at two occasions, one of which only for breakfast. The hotel (and breakfast if bought separately) is very reasonably priced for the quality you get. Add a few quid to what you would pay for a big breakfast at McDonald's, and get freshly baked bread, proper eggs & bacon and so on. This place alone...

This hotel occupies a lovely, historic building with lots of character, we had a very friendly welcome and indeed found all the staff during our stay to be helpful. The beds were comfortable and breakfast was great, there's a very cosy atmosphere in the public areas with lots of bare wood and stone, and candles, so quite romantic too.. would...

Our two nights here were excellent. We wanted to visit Stavanger and found this gem of a place in our search. Very centrally located, with excellent rooms and a great Norwegian breakfast. Best of all were the staff, who were really very helpful. Their welcome was topped off this way. We had just checked into our room and were coming...

By coincidence booked this hotel for an exhibition in Stavanger. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very nice breakfast. Hotel is close to the bus- and railway station in the middle of Sandnes. The noise level is more than acceptable. Will definitely book this hotel again.

The building used to be an old brick and pottery factory and has a quaint atmosphere. You can see some of the old factory infrastructure still up in the reception and restaurant area. The room is nice, large, and clean. My husband has found the room to be a bit warm, but there are three nice large windows in our...

We were only staying one night in Sandnes and booked a room for 2 adults and 2 kids (12 and 14). We got a room in the new part of the hotel with a view towards the train station. The old part of the hotel has more charm and a great history. Hotel is centrally located and you have everything...

Stayed here two nights. Only good thing about it was the location in Sandnes. The hotel was otherwise cold....no hearing on?!? the decor in our room was bad...'painted interior' on the walls. Dirty chairs in the hall outside our room. The breakfast was big but the eggs had been laying there for hours it seemed and was all crispy....the cheese...

The Gamlaværket hotel is connected to the Historic org. and as such, it is different from most business hotels. This also entails original rooms with creaky wooden floors, but if you like the old & quaint touch – I can recommend it. I stayed in room 203, which was facing onto the back pedestrian street. I had the impression that...
