Nice spa and view. Nice staff. Very poor beds! Water all over bathroomfloor after shower. Dinner tasted not much. Breakfast ok. Good coffee. Bring your own pillow. Remember Gaffatape to keep the two beds together! No nice dobbelbed.

(Read my previous reviews to get the full picture)

What had changed?

the pool area was in better shape
the welcome (and goodbye) was much better (got a smile and a hello!)
service during breakfast and dinner was now much better

This time you could actualle see waiters cleaning tables during breakfast and making it possible to find a free, clean table.

Dinner service with 2 new waiters (from Turkey...?) who were very serviceminded, fast and effective + polite and smiling. The little things that lift your experience.

These were the greatest differences from my previous visits to this hotel. The hotel has a lot going, and when all the bits and pieces come together the right way, you'll have a great stay.

I still think it's a bit pricey, both the stay, the food and the wine and the drinks. And I'm a Norwegian, used to high prices...

And Petter, if you are reading this, the cleaning ladies in this hotel deserves a raise. Always smiling, polite, helpful and does a great job! They always but a smile on my face : )

Very good for relaxing and selebration. Good and helpful staff. Nice to go for walks and running along the seaside. There is a Golf track in walking distance. If you want to go shoping, this is not the place.

The small room was modern and nice, but awkard for a wheelchair. We had asked for "a room for the disabled" and were allocated a room far away from any elevator. We walked and walked and walked. This is not a tiny beach shack!

To start with, the place is a conference hotel in the Choice Nordic chain of hotels and probably used mainly by corporations. I have had a Choice membership card for more than 10 years. We have a Choice UK platinum membership as well. By mistake we gave the receptionist the wrong card on arrival. Where as in the US and UK the receptionist would have studied the card and you would have been given an upgrade, the receptionist seemed uninterested in the membership card. She was more interested in my name. So much for "branding" and the Choice Nordic membership card? Choice Nordic is a different chain with a different owner, and it shows.

Our room #3412 at. SEK 1.500 had no balcony. Probably the upgrade at SEK 700 we were never offered? SEK 2.200 for a room far away from any major city is expensive. Just name it "a SPA Hotel" and your can charge an outrageous amount of money?

In the room at the cub board, a closet that looked like "kitchenware", - there were obvious finger prints, of rather fatty smudges. A chair soiled by soda drink stains had to be cleaned by us. Someone had spilled a sugary drink on the floor and the filth was clearly visible. We were asked on departure whether we were satisfied. When we complained, we were told that we should have complained immidiately. What kind of establishment is this? Aren't the rooms supposed to be cleaned upon arrival? Does not the cleaning crew wash floors any more?

The lighting in the bathroom gave you that subdued light atmosphere you'll find in Nightclubs.

There morning started at 05:30 when some “waking up call”, much like Big Ben woke med up one hour early. Hilarious prank from some previous guest? Does not the cleaning crew "clean" the phone of waking up adjustsments?

The water heater to the shower is placed so far away from this room that it takes several minutes for the warm water to reach your very cold wet feet. Ask for a room not too far from the water heater!

The breakfast was nice, but the one at Clarion in Stavanger is even nicer. "You help yourself" principle rules, - but please pick up the cutlery and the black papernapkin on the way to your seat! This is certainly not a 5 star hotel.

We were there just for one night. Lucky us! Would I stay there again, even at some kind of discount? Certainly not! Even paid by your employer? No, no, no!

Room Tip: Anything but 3412

The reason for the stay was to enjoy the spa, something we did to the fullest. Not to crowded, the steam bath was brilliant, and the outdoor tub was a brilliant place to watch the sun rice. Unfortunately we had a special offer including a buffet, and it was outright bad. The hot fish dish was overcooked and the meat was made for kids, fried chicken and sausages. The side dishes boring, and the cold dishes did not have any taste. The only good food was some fish with horseradish, and dishes of salmon. We managed to ignore the experience and enjoyed our stay. Very friendly staff.

Very clean room that offered a beautiful view with all the needs one could ask for at a hotel. The employees were always on the look-out for guests in need of assistance all the while doing their job.
