Exotic, exciting and different. In this book we have personally selected 55 fantastic hotels from all over Norway - each with its own unique character. These days the hotel is half the destination to so many of us; we no longer want to stay in sterile and impersonal hotel rooms where everything is so standardised that we hardly know where we are anymore. A holiday isn't just about comfort and the number of TV channels in our room, it's about experiencing places with charm and soul. A stay in a hotel should be like a break from everyday life, a place where we can enjoy ourselves, relax and recharge. The hotels presented here are all of those things and all have something special to offer, whether it's an exciting history, a creative concept, beautiful views and surroundings, unique design or unusual culinary delights. They tell stories of royal guests, celebrities, pilgrims and ghosts; they speak of passionate enthusiasts who have made their hotel their life's work and restored and recreated original interiors and atmospheres. They open their doors to give their guests a memory for life. The book also contains tips, recommendations and descriptions of more than 500 exciting activities and sights around the hotels - and is a great guide to car holidays in Norway.
