“Veldig bra, men med klart forbedringspotensial”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Compared to other hotels in this category there are some clear drawbacks:
1. In addition to the room cost there is a fee of NOK 195 pp to use the spa facilities
2. The hotel seems to be aimed at business customers, with breakfast from 7-930 and the earliest checkout we have ever encountered, at 10 am!

Other than that, a lovely, clean and new hotel. They charged our phones at the reception. Nice breakfast. Short walk away from Son with small galleries, shops and cafés.

Room Tip: We had a suite, which was nice. Have stayere before, then we had a bathtub, this time only a shower...

We stayed her saturday/sunday a weekend in december. This is a place very good for a weekend break or other arangment ment for grown ups. We stayd in a suite which remined me more of a minimalistic one bedroom flat. Small bathrom but covered our needs. Must be very nice in the summer cause the suite had a balcony with marina view.The Spa area was very nice and delicate.The restaurant had only 2 entrees, main course and deserts which we really didn't fancy but we had to choose one of the 2. However , the food was very good.

Room Tip: Ask for marina view. Not a place for kids.

Writing this I've a problem with fairness and objectivity.On many counts an outstanding hotel, but my gut feeling was never to return. Mainly because of a cold, sterile atmosphere and decore. Felt somewhat like in an efficient hospital. And a spa without children or facilities for children. Pricy; a small bottle of water NOK 44. Advanced electronic key systmem who just functioned part of the time. But in all fairness : Nice location, good furniture in clean rooms, tasty food and a competent staff.

Room Tip: Chose top corner room facing the sea.

Dear guest
We thank you for your review. We regret that we failed to meet all your expectations in terms of atmosphere and decor in our commond areas. We have also chosen not to focus on activities for children in our spa area, because we want our other guests to find peace and relaxation with us.

We wish you a Happy Advent

Nice location and nice view from room. The restaurant was good and pool/spa area was big with different pools and hottubs. Rooms were ok standard and had good beds. Room wasn't very clean but apart from that a nice place to stay.

First of all, fantastic location, so wish I was able to stay longer. The Hotel is friendly and clean, my lower cost room had an odd lay out but is perfectly designed for a business traveller in mind. The room had a great View, The Spa is first rate, one of the best I have been to in a long while and there is even enough room in the pool for a good mini swim session.
Breakfast is standard but geared towards a more healthy option, which is good.
Overall a great hotel.

This is a first class hotel. The overall concept is to offer peace and tranquility to your stay and they have certainly achieved this in all areas of the hotel. The food is freshly made and of very high quality. The situation of the hotel is right on the Norwegian fjord, just beautiful views from every window. The spa facilities are exceptional, you can swim in the pool of infinity, hot tub outside and enjoy the experience of the Norwegian climate. Have the magic circle experience of unlimited treatments.It is also only 40mins on the train to Oslo, and much nicer to stay in Son than Oslo. I will be back with my family. Thankyou Son spa hotel for an excellent stay.
