  • The Tjornestuen conference room with room for 50-60 people at Spa & Hotel Holmsbu

At the heart of Holmsbu Hotel & Spa is Villa Holtnes, our traditional villa from the early 1900s. The villa is newly restored but maintains its turn-of-the-century character. The house creates the perfect backdrop for all types of functions.


Thornestuen is the heart of the house and has capacity for 50 people in classroom seating or 60 people in theatre seating. It's also possible to furnish the room so that 50 people can have dinner for, say, a Christmas buffet, summer party, confirmation, christening or any other occasion. The room can also be split into two equal areas for conferences. Thornestuen is of course equipped with all the latest conference technology.


Rebekka is bright and its design has a feminine touch. It can be used as a boardroom for eight people and has wonderful views over the rooftops of our boathouses and the fjord. Rebekka has all the necessary technical equipment.


Kjær is the opposite of Rebekka with its masculine design. Its large window fills the room with light and offers wonderful views of the fjord. The room also has all the necessary technical equipment.


When we restored the villa we took the opportunity to dig out a cellar under the house. Today we use it as a private bar, and it is the perfect place to continue your evening after dinner in Thornestuen. As functions held here are considered private, the bar is fully licensed to serve drinks until 2.30am.

The history of Villa Holtnes

The villa's unusual history deserves a few sentences. Rebekka Holm was the widow of shipowner Hans Jørgen Kjær, who left behind a significant fortune when he died. Rebekka remarried on 31 March 1903, at the age of 40, and her second husband was Theodore Willhelm Thorne, who was 14 years her junior. Together they ran a shrimping business and imported fish from Denmark, which they then sold in Drammen and Oslo. At the same time they started to build Villa Holtnes. But Theodore died in 1907, aged just 30, before the house was complete. There have since been many stories of inexplicable and mysterious events at Villa Holtnes. The recurring question in all the stories is whether Rebekka still lives in the villa. We don't know the answer, but we do our very best to make sure that both Rebekka and our guests enjoy their time spent in our villa.


Here's the capacity for the different meeting facilities at Villa Holtnes.
