Reviewed February 4, 2014

After 30 seconds in the lobby , you already starting to relax. Great Staff that makes you feel special and welcome.
We had a really enjoyable weekend with a great spa and exelent dinner at night.
The room was nice and clean , and the same with the spa. We will love to come back and get another weekend here. :)

Scandinavia's best equipped spa hotel? Or something. It doesn't matter. It was excellent without any comparison. Bring your sweetheart and book "Time for love". And love will flourish!

But don't forget to enjoy the art on the walls. The bar alone is a separate exhibition of some of Morten Krogvolds best pictures.

A fairly new hotel, great seaside location a short walk from the train station and the city centre. Rooms are spacious, clean and very nicely furnished. Still, it's quite expensive. Good breakfast selection and a great restaurant. Very good hotel for small to medium sized conferences, and the meeting and service amenities are excellent. I've visited twice, for work conferences, and have only positive things to say about this hotel and its staff. I'd love to stay here again as a couple and try out the spa together with my wife :)

The best spa experience you can get. The hotel is only five years old. So everything is up to date. The rooms is modern and very clean. The staff is very professional, service minded and kind. The bar and the restaurant is one of the best I have ever tried in Norway. The break first is a cornucopia of good norwegian deli. The spa. Asian spa go home!

The ultimate experience in hotel, spa, relaxation, nice staff. The rooms are excellent. Cheap parking (50kr for 24h). Airconditioned room - you can choose temp yourself. Nice beds.

Unfortunately the price for staying over is horrendous (3500 NOK for two people for one night. 5700 NOK for two people two nights), but it's such an awesome experience you'll soon forget about that...

It probably is not fair to rate Farris Bad with only four dots, but even though my experience was wonderful, it is really expensive and without my gift card that covered almost all of my stay I would have had a bitter taste to use that huge chunk of money on a one night stay with a couple of treatments and dinner. I have heard you can get a much better deal staying from Sunday to Monday, and the experience is the same, so if you can avoid the high weekend rate, you would be much better off. The place is absolutely stunning! Scandinavian design, clean and modern. Art work enough to fill a large gallery. We had complimentary yoga and aqua pilates sessions, the latter was the most fun. Lots of steam rooms, baths, saunas and things to do on your own, you should at least have a couple of hours to explore the place in addition to treatments. The swimming pool was a little bit smaller than I had anticipated, and a little bit crowded at times, but if you are not there to take laps, it is very nice and has a great view. Elsewhere at the premises, stairs down to the sea, outdoor hot tub and massage chairs were welcomed surprises. The restaurant was packed on a Saturday night, the service was very friendly, and the food was good. The bar was relaxed and stylish. All in all a great stay that I enjoyed very much!

Room Tip: I guess a room with a sea view would be very nice here...

Simply ...

There's nothing perfect for sure that's why won't say perfect but


Highly recomended
Cant talk about the price because it paid already by my job !

Spa .... Don't miss it !
Well have nothing more to say but as I mention before nothing is perfect

Not really far from the train station it's walking distance, and lucky we met people who were in the same train and they show us how to go to the hotel ....
