The location and the views are fantastic (our room faced the sea and snow-capped mountains in the distance). The level of comfort is 3* with no frills, but it is all functional and clean and the room quite large. A big bonus point for having an extra door inside the room to separate the main part of the room from the entrance and the bathroom, thus being more effective at cutting any noise that may come from the corridor (not that there was any).
The breakfast had good choice of cheeses, bacon, egg, smoked salmon, pancakes. All in the restaurant downstairs, which again had lovely views over the sea/mountains in the distance. The hotel also serves dinner in the same place. There was just one course and one choice, but it was done very well and good value (for Norway prices).
Parking was free.
In this trip to Norway we stayed in several places in 4* hotels, with Eveness being the only 3*. OK, it was a notch down from what we’ve seen elsewhere (also reflected in the price!), but the positioning and the view from the room made up for it!
The staff were very helpful with tips for shops and walks in the vicinity.
