The spa was excellent, but the restaurant was disappointing. The food wasn’t bad, just uninteresting and not worth the price. The waitress was very sweet, but didn’t know what she was serving. We will visit again, but we will eat somewhere else.

Drammen, Norway5 contributions
I always come back to stay at Farris as the location suits us so well. But I think that the hotel needs some improvement through maintenance and especially cleaning the rooms. Here, I think there has generally been poor cleaning in bathrooms, which need a hard wash to remove limescale and build-up of other moisture damage such as mould. Otherwise, I think the spa times are a bit too short and I miss being able to spend longer in the spa. The dinner experience feels rushed and as if we have to get out quickly to clear the table. The food is ok, but has great potential to be better considering how much you pay for the food. But as I said, we will probably come back as it is the only offer in the area. Hope they improve.

A perfect place for a few days of relaxing and self-pampering. The spa area is very big and didn't feel overcrowded even on a day with full occupany (public holiday). The location by the fjord means you can go right into the sea for a cooling swim after your "sauna experience". Great staff!

Staff at the font desk roll their eyes at us for asking questions or answer in a rude maner. Check in is at 4pm and way to late. Our hotel deal had a two meal corse (but not if you want meat, than you have to pay extra). Over 50 % of it was impossible to eat and when we showed them they said: ah thats just how it is, a new one would not be better Also I wish there were swimwear in all sizes (lucky I brought my own). After staying there we were told to pay for parking to. Poor breakfast where there was no syrup for the pancakes, no sauce to go with the hot meals, and almost impossible to get hold of a cup of coffe. We will not recommend Farris to anyone.

Felt like a public swimming area. Way too overcrowded overall. Cleaners of the opposite gender in the shower whilst naked. NOT OK. Some staff looked overworked and unhappy. Not worth the money. Go spend your money elsewhere

Upon arrival we got all the information we needed, and we could choose between getting free swimsuit and swim shorts, or we could use our own. We chose to get the free ones from the hotel. We got a nice room and free robes, slippers and a little spa kit with different products. The stay was overall very good. Nice spa area and a variety of sauna rituals. Our favorite “attraction” was the amazing mineral cave. This was our first experience with sauna ritual- and we had a great time! Would absolutely do this again. The only negative thing to say about this place was the maincourse that was included in our three course meal. The main course was chicken and it wasn’t good at all, I couldn’t finish mine. But the dessert was delicious.

Greetings and many thanks for your generous review of our resort. Glad to see that you experienced the spa and that the mineral cave and sauna rituals in particular made such a nice impression. This coming weekend we are hosting the Norwegian Aufguss championship and offer a program with the best sauna masters in the country. Sweating cleans the body, and shifts between cold and heat is one of the oldest and easiest forms of wellness therapy. I apologize that we failed to impress you with the main course for dinner and I do hope you made our staff aware so that we got the chance to make it right for you. Our goal is to make Farris Bad the place where you love to return and the building itself, the interior and art, the spa and beach location we believe hold 5 star quality. The rest we will put all our efforts into becoming so. Kind regards Linda Schelander Hotel manager

Hi Elisabeth. Thank you for the 5 stars and for appreciating our hotel and service. In addition to being a spa hotel, Farris Bad is also a vibrant and dynamic art gallery. Outside the elevator, in the corridors, in the reception area and out on the beach you will find about 50 large and small pieces of art. Take the time to study them, evaluate them and enjoy them. We call it art breaks. Our goal is to make Farris Bad the place where you love to return and we look forward to hosting you again. Warm regards Linda Hotel Manager

It is not often you are a "tourist" in your own city, but after visiting Farris Bad it will definitely not be the last time! The hotel has a relaxing atmosphere, fantastic food in the restaurant and wonderful spa and sauna experiences. The perfect break in everyday life :-)
