The hotel is beautifully situated right by the fjord. It is a piece from the cities , and public transportation is not well developed . However , if you have a car you get there easily within a short hour from Drammen or about 1.5 hours from Oslo. It features a private sandy beach , pier and both outdoor and indoor pool . All together very Nice. I visited the hotel in connection with a conference, and was lucky to get one of the suites ( 201). Large, comfortable apartment with fully equipped kitchen, living room , dining room and large balcony with uninterrupted views over the fjord . Spotlessly clean inside, but the balcony needed a washdown.The bed was very comfortable. However , it should have been better curtains. The curtains did not completely cover the windows in the bedroom and was not "heavy" enough. It was therefore quite light in the room during the evening / night. The conference room was absolutely fine. Breakfast was very good . Good selection of assorted toppings , fruit and fresh waffles are always a plus. I was disappointed by the lunch. We had the lunch buffet for two consecutive days and got served the same food on both days . At least the hot dishes should not be the same on consecutive days. The food on the buffet was not that exciting either. The dinner however was very good.

Spent one night at Holmsbu Hotel & Spa for a conference. The view from the restaurant was lovely, but our conference room might as well have been in a basement, as there wasn't one window in the room. My room was very large, with a fully equipped kitchen, dining table, living area and bedroom. The room was a little dated, and especially the beds had seen better days. The biggest negative was the food. The set-up for lunch was hopeless, as the buffet area was way to small for a group our size. I also found the selection to be rather poor, and their bread was awful.

The hotel is in a very beautiful location, I was there for a Conference and overall I enjoyed my stay. The room was large, I had a seperate bedroom. The lunch was ok, I felt the selection could have been better, but it was ok. Not awardwinning. The staff overall was helpful and Nice. For the nagatives: my bathroom door had a hole in it, not all the way through, but like someone had hit it from the inside, and there was water damage on the bottom. Under the tap in the bathroom there was some Brown stuff running Down. I touched, thinking it was rust, but it came off, so the cleaners had just not wiped it, for a loooong time. I got a double bed, but I felt like I was sliding to the middle of the bed (between the two single matresses). I think they have had their share of use... I enjoyed the bathtub, I enjoyed the dinner, the view. Overall I was very happy. But the age is starting to tell.

I was excited about visiting Holmsbu, as I knew the location was by the sea, and the pictures online looked wonderful. This was our first visit here. Well, what can I say? I am absolutely thrilled about writing this review, as I could not have asked for a better relaxing break, away from the hustle and bustle in Oslo, and only 1 hour drive from the capital! We got an incredible deal, as it was the quiet days leading up to Easter, and most Norwegians go up in the mountains for their Easter holiday. I was visiting Holmsbu Hotel & Spa together with my best friend, my teenage daughter and my friend's teenage daughter, we decided to rent a sea-cabin ("sjøbod") right next to the sea. Our expectations were met, as we walked in to our little cottage, we were all stunned by its location! So so charming, with light colours and nautical seaside coastal living interiors, ocean view, and right next to the sea! In fact, you could not get any closer to the water! Stunning views, and we loved relaxing on our little terrace, watching the sun go down. We took advantage of our "Easter-family-package," which included visits to the swimming pool, steam room, the sauna and the outside jacuzzi. The pool area was clean, lots of space, with a very relaxing atmosphere. During the two nights we had, we paid visits to the restaurant on both nights as well as enjoying breakfast in the mornings. The food was delicious both nights, the fish soup was excellent as our starter followed by a beautiful & tender calve culotte (beef.) The second night I had the best halibut I have ever tasted, it was fantastic! The food, the location, our charming sea cabin, all in all this has been a memorable stay and we are definitely coming back! But what made our stay so special was the warm, genuine and friendly hospitality by the staff! The lovely ladies in the reception: Emilie - thank you so much for your hospitality, and for letting us extend our stay, as we loved being there so much! The waiters in the restaurant were all lovely and helpful, a big thanks to Martina, Henriette and Sergio who looked after us and spoilt us both evenings! You excelled - we loved our evenings relaxing in the restaurant, with the best view to the ocean. Please bring our gratitude to the chefs and the kitchen staff! My warmest recommendations to Holmsbu Hotel & Spa, I will definitely return!
