The spa itself is lovely, there are tons of various steam rooms and treatments available its clean and there is plenty there to keep you relaxed (but not bored!) for hours on end. I would 100% go to the spa again. That being said the hotel itself wasn't great. The biggest problem is the staff lack training and knowledge of the hotel and the information you get even straight forward information like what time is check in conflicts where it really shouldn't! For example Hotels.com (Where we booked our stay) lists check in to be at 3pm whereas on the FarrisBad.no website it is listed at 4pm, when we got there it was actually 4pm so we stored our bags and went out for lunch first. No a big issue but this is just one of many conflicts in information. We also rang to add a pet to our hotel booking and I was told 250kr was the charge however online 200kr is the charge when I got in contact to check which was right they seemed very unsure and I was eventually told 200kr. I was also told we would have access to the spa the next day till 3pm and this is NOT the case unless you pay an additional fee for late check out. The room was OK, there was a party downstairs and you could here everything so I could see this being a problem if you needed to stay in your room and rest. The biggest problem came the day after we had checked out. We had paid for our stay in full prior to our arrival on hotels.com however when I checked out bank account afterwards I saw we had been charged AGAIN in full. I rang them straight away and I made a total of 15 phone calls. Reception rang until it went dead on eight seperate occasions. I tried invoice queries and someone answered there and told me they would send an email to reception and reception would call me right back, two hours later no phone call so I called AGAIN to be told I would be put directly through, it rang until the line went dead. I left it a few hours and called invoice queries yet again to be told I would just have to wait and emails had been sent and they would call back that day. They never did. I also emailed them directly myself and got no reply. My husband took over calling them in the evening and managed to finally get through on reception where they said the money had just been taken as a 'deposit' and would be returned which it now has been but what hotel takes 100% of the cost of your stay prior to your stay and takes 100% of the cost AGAIN as a deposit?! Make sure you bring a credit card if you stay here and don't want it to eat into your spending money!

Sometimes you might just use resources to pamper your partner and yourself with a great Spa experience, nice and tasteful surroundings. This Spa hotel claims to have the largest facilities in Scandinavia. Different saunas, sometimes Aufguss presentations, and other spa facilities, including the possibility of access to the sea by means of a ladder. Lots of young couples and pregnant females having a last Spa event before motherhood. Very professionally run - and you pay for it.

This is a unique spa hotel of individual design. It is.built partially out over a beach and the sea. From the spa it is possible to climb down steps to the sea. This has a sandy bottom but watch out for a couple of rocks at the bottom of the steps. The spa has a wide range of facilities and is a place to spend some time in. There is a minimum age limit ofv16 years so it is not full of noisy children. Some refreshments are available free of charge in the spa. The hotel rooms are of good quality, many overlooking the sea, and we heard no noise from other guest rroms. The restaurant was a bit on the expensive side but the food and service are good. Be sure to check the bill because we found mistakes on ours. The beds are very comfortable giving a good night's sleep, the breakfast is very good. On warm days it is possible to have this on the terrace overlooking the sea. All the staff are very friendly and pleasant. From the hotel one can walk to the modern cinema complex with a tourist information centre and a number of modern restaurants. There is a large clean. Garage beneath the hotel where green lights above the parking spaces indicate vacant ones and red lights show those that are occupied. The garage cost Is not unreasonable. We stayed during the summer holiday period when the hotel offered excellent value for money. Costs may be higher at other times.

Farris bad has the Complete spa experience. You can lie in a grotto and listen to water dripping, you can take different kinds of saunas and massage Baths, jump in an icy water pool to kickstart your blodd circulation, comtemplate life in the tepidarium og enjoy an outside Jacuzzi and bathe in the sea. You can buy all kinds of massages. Nudity is recommended and allowed but not mandatory except for wednesdays from 8 - 11 P.M and the last sunday of the month. At that time you can only enter the spa and bath in the nude! It's the best spa/bath experience I've had in Norway, or abroad so far, and I've visited quite a few now. You can choose to stay at the hotel, or just pay for a day at the spa (approx 300-500 NOK for entering bath, find treatment prices at :farrisbad.no. The hotel is quite good, the rooms are spacious, even the double rooms. We chose a double room with an extra bed, and there is still room to spare. Breakfast is okay, but nothing spectacular. Nice to eat breakfast outdoors at the patio when weather and temperature allows it. Recommend to eat dinner and lunch elsewhere, the food does not impress, lunch/dinner is quite uneventful and average. Check in is 3 P.M, Check out is at noon.
