“A hidden gem”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

We had a fantastic stay which included lovely pre-summer weather. The kids where sun bathing and also playing by the beach during the evening while the adults enjoyed the dinner with control over the children. The food has a high standard and the location is unique. Great breakfast and cosy villages in the 20-40 minutes drive away, including Kristiansand Dyrepark.

We knew, of course, after having celebrated our wedding at the hotel in 2009, that the family celebration we planned would be a success as well, when we once again booked Fevik Strand Hotel. I´m delighted to say that we were right. We were a party of 15 adults and 2 small children and celebrated with dinner in a separate room for our party only. Our guests were particularly satisfied with the food (our compliments to the Chef)
My husband and I together with our baby boy, stayed in a lovely apartment facing the sea.
Thanks for making this weekend a great one for me and my family.

Room Tip: The apartments in the new part of the hotel, facing the sea, are lovely.

we stayed at this hotel the last week of July. It is an historic property that has had a nice upgrade for the public areas and spaces and has retained a lot of its original charm. The public areas are very nice and we really enjoyed the public beach that the property overlooks. It is used by the local population but to me that only adds to its charm. Wwe did not eat dinner in the restaurant but the breakfast buffet was a cut above the standard breakfast buffet fair in Norway and lunch on the patio was delicious.we also enjoyed the lawn and our room was quite large by Norwegian standards. excellent and helpful staff

Spent one night at this hotel by chance, with my six-year old son. Had never heard of the place before and was really impressed upon arrival.
The location is secluded and beautiful, with a nice beach right outside. We did not swim, but many adults and children look to have a great time in the water!
The service was good, both on arrival and departure.
Our room was nice and spacious with a tiled bathroom. A great view from a good-sized window.

Personally, I would actually prefer a hotel in a "busier" location. Although beautiful, the hotel is a bit secluded and tranquil for my taste. With an active 6-year old, I shiver to think of what to do with him inside on a rainy day.

Room Tip: We stayed in the new wing and the room was very nice and clean.

If you are looking for a relaxing boutique hotel in southern norway, Strand Hotel Fevik is the one for you. Roald Dahl spent summers here, inspired by the view to write many of his greatest works.
I travel all over the world for business and this hotel rates in my top three. Comfortable luxury rooms, great view, amazing food and the staff bent over backwards to make sure my stay was perfect. Strand Hotel Fevik is a 10 on all fronts!

Room Tip: ask for seaside view in the newer section, preferably with terrace. if you are a family, request a r...

This hotel is and old renovated one. The rooms have a kitchen and one bedroom - with tv and sofa in the "living" room. It was new and fresh - and for all CLEAN.

The food was amazing and well put together for a group.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Strand Hotel Fevik is more than a hotel. Since 1937 the place has appeared as an exotic refuge in the Norwegian skerries, inviting to both recreation and adventure. The hotel has a rich history and is one of the few remaining functionalist style buildings in Norway. With the sea and soft sand dunes waiting just outside your door, this is probably the closest you can get to a Mediterranean holiday in Norway. ... more   less
