    Oh, the View! For that view in the evening I was ready to pay any money. Really good place. 5-7 min from ferry line.

    A lot of groups... Not the best service it could be better

    We liked the lobby and the location as well as the garden. All this was really beautiful

    the room we stayed in, 504, was not a room you would pay 2250 NOK per night. Furnitures was beyond well used, door to the balcony was very difficult to open, no spare pillows in the room, two in a queen. Bo internet, no information about services in the hotel like restaurants and menues. Also at that price I would expect to be able to read a newspaper in the lobby without paying for it or get a cup of complementary coffee. The wieners for breakfast were Luke warm as were the fried eggs with almost uncooked bacon on top

    The hotel receives too many travel groups during summer time. Some of the rooms are too close to the 'busy' elevator, which are very noizy even in late evenings. There aren't many choices for dinner buffet or breakfast, as there are mainly prepared for travel groups.

    La vista es maravillosa. Buffet lleno de platos de buena calidad, aunque un poco caro

    Det var nydelig vær da vi var der, så vi koste oss ute ved stranden. Maten var god.Betjeningen i retauranten (hovmester samt en mannlig servitør) var flinke og hyggelige.

    Vi syns hotellet var dyrt i forhold til standard. Hotellet er slitent og trenger oppgradering i forhold til andre 4 stjerners hoteller vi har bodd på. Vi syns betjeningen generelt (med unntak av et par utenlandske menn i restauranten) var dårlig. Utrolig liten og kjedelig by, så ikke stort å finne på. Buffeten kunne hatt bedre utvalg, tiltross for godt på smak, det som var der.

    Beliggenhet, rolige omgivelser, fint uteområde og omgivelser. Middag i vinterhagen med storslått utsikt.

    Trimrom med apparater som satt fast samt et alt for lite basseng. Jeg forventet mer der.

    Særdeles hyggelig betjening. Beliggenheten og atmosfæren var i særklasse. Vi kommer nok tilbake.

    Det er dyrt å bo på hotell i Norge, også her. Bwelysningen på rommet kunne ha vært en god del bedre.

    frokost

    Vår brombestilling var ikke registrert i hotellets system. Middagsbuffet var i dyreste laget. Rengjøringsutstyr etc stod lagret i korridor utenfor våre rom

    Utsikten og anlegget rundt. Velholdt ute, rent og pent inne, men noe aldersstegent og gammeldags.

    Fryktelig dårlig mat og dårlig service i restauranten. Det går ikke an å by utenlandske gjester på noe slikt. Jeg hadde middag om kvelden, en buffet. Ord strekker ikke til, men risen hadde kokt så lenge og var så inntørket at den knaste under dennene, alt var en grøt. Brun saus, noen få ting på koldtbordet. Det går ikke an å gjøre dette i 2012. I tillegg var servicen uvennlig og fraværende. Frokosten var spartansk. Jeg spurte en kelner om jeg kunne få en kaffe latte. Han forsvant inn - muligens for å spørre eller for å gjemme seg - men jeg fikk aldri noe svar på om dette var mulig. Så - her er det mye å rydde opp i. I tillegg var sengen på rom 407 vaklevoren...

    Har feriert mange, mange år i nærheten, og vært innom Brakanes ved flere anledninger. Nå fikk vi/jeg lyst til å overnatte her. Alternativet ville vært Espelandsdalen Camping, men vi er blitt for gamle for enkle campinghytter. Kravene til gjestenes påkledning er også nå annerledes og mer liberalt enn da min far ble nektet adgang ca 1960 pga sluskete frakk! Men som relativt framtredende jurist fikk han argumentert oss alle inn til en - etter hva jeg husker - bra lunsj den gangen.

    Hårføneren virket ikke. Min kone ble noe oppbrakt over dette der hun sto med dryppvått hår, og betjeningen greide ikke å skaffe en ny. Hun løste problemet ved å gå inn på et tilstøtende, tomt rom og bruke føneren der. Dataproblemer ved ankomst. Resepsjonisten hadde skrevet ut en liste over bookinger hvor vi stod, men rommet var ikke angitt på den. I stedet for å sitte frustert og vente på at dataproblemet skulle løses, gikk vi til Ulvik hotell, hvor jeg i ungdomstiden har svelget unna mang en øl i påvente av buss over Espelandsdalen (som nå vel bare går via Vallaviktunnelene?).

    Et flott miljø og et topp personale, med glimt i øye, følte oss velkommen,vil helt sikkert komme tilbake.

    Kun en ting, som er en bagatell, litt stive priser i baren!!

    Nice

    Beliggenheten kan neppe bli bedre, nydelig hage. men --

    Det skulle ikke mye til for å heve dette hotellet til et femstjerners. men da må der inn en dagloig leder med en fast hånd. Tjenestene i resepsjonen ga generelt dårlig inntrykk, noen få som ødela for de helt gode. Generende med betjening av utenlandsk opprinnelse som ikke holdt mål, på flere felt. Betjeningen i spisesalen ga preg av manglende ledelse, bl.a. sjusket påkledning. Fastere daglig ledelse av kyndig leder (utdannelse?) må til hilsen kaj
