We chose this hotel because we were going to Midgardsblot a few miles away. We were really pleased with our stay though. It was in the perfect position for the festival and town, although getting there by public transport is a little tricky. It's not too bad by taxi though (for Norway prices)!

The staff were mostly friendly, although one of the reception team wasn't the most cheerful. The reception area was large and was useful for sitting in and having a couple of drinks. It was also next to the restaurant area, and while we didn't have dinner, the breakfast buffet was quite varied and very tasty. The food stopped being replenished near to the closing time though, so it's worth going down at least half hour before it closes.

The rooms, and hotel generally, are clean and tidy. We didn't bother with getting our room cleared, as we were only there for a few days, but the service was regular and thorough. We had a twin room, but it was easy enough to push the beds together (with no arguments about covers)! The beds were really comfortable too. The bathroom was also great, especially the shower.

The only issue was the temperature - it never seemed to cool down, even when it was raining. In part it was because of the hot air from the fridge, but even having the window open didn't help. There was also a wedding reception on our last night, which didn't bother our room too much but our friends who were over the event room were kept awake.

Overall though, we really liked it!

Stayed in a room on the other side of the street. They were very friendly to arrange one-room-accommodation for our family with three kids. Breakfast included, and were happy with it too. Our electric car (Tesla) did not accept the Shuko charging, but there was another car being charged (Huyndai Ionic).

The staff at this hotel is very service minded and helpful from the reception to the restaurant. Nice rooms(maybe a bit small), but clean and comfortable. It’s close to the harbor and the shopping mall.

We stayed last September as we try & visit family every year.
Staying here was tight in Horten, so close to everything..buses etc:-
When we arrived in Oslo we caught the train then bus arriving just around the corner from the hotel.
We had a beautiful view of the fjord watching the ferry come & go to Moss.
The staff were brilliant, they looked after us by making phone calls when our credit card didn’t work.
Breakfast was nice...
We are going back this Nov 2018

Room tip: We asked for a room with a view........
