    « a Wonderful Place to Stay When You Visit the Pulpit Rock »

    Not only good location, reasonable price, excellent service, gorgeous breakfast but also clean & spacious room. We stayed two nights in August of 2016. And had a great dinner in the hotel. We enjoyed it very much. And hopefully we will come back in the near future. We strongly recommend all of you to stay here while you visit the Pulpit Rock.

    « in town senter by the harbor and close to many restaurants and bars »

    Stavanger's oldest hotel, opened in 1900. History in every wall. Check out Holmen Bar, with the famous collection of whisky's and their excellent cocktails, situated by the reception and the grill in 1rst floor, BigHorn restaurant.

    « Nice location, super breakfast and top service »

    Victorie Hotel is my favorite in Stavanger. And if you get the right room, you will have an excellent view. The Breakfast is superb. The service from the staff in the restaurtant and in the reseption top. A very happy guest left the hotel and will be back as soon as possible.

    « Darkness »

    Dark and old hotell. Our room noisy outside because of kids/army festivies. Cozy feeling on the other hand. But with new ideas and some money this old castle can be something really heavy pieace. Friendly staff, and average food in the restaurang. Not so impressed, sorry!

    « Great Stay in Stavanger »

    First time staying in the centre of Stavanger and this hotel is centrally located, with all the shops, restaurants and bars located fairly close by. Access to Sola airport bus in two close locations. Hotel was very quiet, even though a restaurant and bar are located on ground floor. Nothing heard up here on the fifth floor. Room clean and ample space. Breaksfast was a little cold today but then most food such a bacon etc. not freshly prepared will cool. I am sure if you ask they would prepare hot food if asked. No a biggy for the majority of people but the internet ask was flaky this far up and this far along the corridor. The question is would I stay here again, yes I would.

    « Okay »

    The building is really historic but the rooms and facilities are a bit out dated. Breakfast is good and included. Unfortunately no gym or fitness available. The hotel is situated pretty nice close to the harbor.

    « Hotel by the seaside in Stavanger »

    Stayed there for a seminar of 2 days on one night . Most of the hotel areas and corridors was covered with carpets and I have an allergy, so my stay was not the best. Luckily in my room, no carpet. The hotel looked old and needed upgrading. The room was normal size with a single bed, view half to the street with a bit of sea view to the right. The elevator was small and slow. Breakfast was ok with choice of glutenfree bread, egg and fruit. The bathroom was old fashion and needed and upgrade, no shower floor blanket, so it was a risk of wet floor when coming out of the shower with slippery floor. The soap and shampoo dispensers were empty and replaced by couple of small bottles.This did not give a good impression. The hotel was situated in the middle of city center and easy to walk to shops and restaurant and the seaside is just outside the hotel. About 7 mins to walk to the airport bus terminal.

    « Quite average »

    The breakfast is good. But otherwise this hotel is too expensive for the quality it provides. The room was tatty, not exactly clean and could use an update. At the same time the prices were quite high and certainly too high for me.

    « Nice enough, but central location comes with noise »

    I got an excellent rate (for Norway) at the Victoria, an older hotel that could use with some updates, but overall, my stay was comfortable for a 4-day long-weekend. I had a larger room on the 5th floor with views over the harbor entrance. It was a pleasure to watch the cruise ships sail past my window every evening, but the weekend party noise wafting up from street level until very early in the morning was much less pleasant. (Colleagues staying on the 2nd floor requested to me moved after an initial sleepless night.) The white-tiled bathroom was large with a heated floor. The only problem was that the bathtub's moveable glass wall did not keep the shower from flooding the floor. The room's bed was quite comfortable with an additional sofa, chair and coffee table, side chair and a desk in front of the large window, which was perfect for me, since I needed to get some writing done while there on business. (The free wifi was very reliable.) The big disappointment was the included breakfast buffet, that initially seemed ample, BUT the cooked food was cold--there's nothing worse than cold fried eggs, bacon and potatoes. There were many other choices available--yoghurt, juices, fruit, breads and granola, but after two disappointing mornings, I went elsewhere for breakfast. The hotel is a bit worn in places, but it also has its charm. The desk staff were helpful and friendly. And the hotel is located in close proximity to cafes, restaurants and the old-town shopping district.

    « Great location, nice hotel »

    No complaints here. This hotel has an ideal location and is comfortable. The building's a bit old but that wasn't a problem for us. It was still nice enough. Beds were nice, shower was good. Has free, good wifi. Breakfast was ok. Had a selection of fruit, yogurt with toppings, juices, coffee, salmon, eggs sausages and bacon. Some items were cold. I would stay here again.

    « Old, charming. »

    We escaped fom a dump in Jorpeland (avoid!) and booked a last minute here. Not bad! Right in the centre of town. Great view! When we woke up the next morning we found a cruise-ship towering over us. Had to change with curtains closed... Breakfast reasonable...

    « Nice but worn »

    Welcoming staff took care of my request for a quieter room, no worries! The hotel is a bit worn, but the rooms are clean. Situated on the harbour in Stavanger it has a great location! Collaboration With Big Horn restaurant is a good solution. Here you get a full a-la carte menue for dinner and a nice breakfast buffet.

    « Good location »

    An old style hotel building, nice for a short stay. Good location next to the quayside with the cruise ships towering above it. The breakfast was very good. Would stay again when in Stavanger. Good location for easy access to the ferries.

    « old but nice »

    This is an old building but well kept and clean. Even though there was a little hiccup with our booking it was very quickly fixed and we were given 2 rooms with views of the harbor (which was perfect) - staff was very helpful and informative. Hotel is near to shops and all the restaurants / bars The Ferry terminal is just around the corner (perfect for a trip to Pulpit Rock). The bus/train station is about 10 mins walk. Breakfast buffet was perfect. The only issue we had was not from the hotel, but on one of the mornings we woke up early to sound of the Captain of one of the cruise ships welcoming his guests to Bergen with a good 5 mins of information - it sounded as if he was right in the room with us. So maybe a room with a view of the harbor was not such a good idea !! Would recommend this hotel.

    « Showing its wear, but still charming! »

    A traditional well located hotel that might use a little TLC is still charming with an old world feel. On the water in/near old Stavanger everything is within walking distance. If you are driving, the car park is a couple blocks away and not included with the room. The ferries are just around the corner, so also convenient for getting to The breakfast was fine, as long as don't find yourself in the middle of a swarming tour group.

    « Week end break »

    An old and good hotel. We just wanted an evening in Stavanger and a nice meal and booked in here and a table for two at the restaurant Big Horn inside the hotel. A good choise for a very windy evening. And after a very good meal, a comfortable seat in Holmen bar. This hotel has style and a history way back in time. Parking can be very expensive, but Valberget parking is the best.

    Very nice and clean room with view in Stavanger Harbour.Service was very good,we had a nice welcome by the greek night receptionist, and breakfast was very tastefull. I did not needed a taxi as the hotel is close to everything. I would stay there again.

    « Great location but needs updating »

    An excellent location on the portside. Close to restaurants, coffee shops, bars and the town shops. The Fjord excursions are just five minutes away. The cruise liners arrive directly opposite the hotel, which was quite impressive. The hotel itself needs a full redecoration and a general update. The staff were friendly and attentive. We didn't eat here though, there was a strike of some hotel staff in Norway at the time, and the Big Horn steakhouse and bar were closed.

    « Right in the Middle of it All »

    Perfect centrally located old school hotel! Comfortable, affordable and right in the middle of all the goodness Stavanger has to offer. The rooms were cozy yet more than enough for my wife and I, and the view from our room made up for any space we didn't have inside the room. The hotel staff easily catered to our needs during the 3 day stay at this wonderful hotel, including questions about the city and tips about some of the better local eateries around town. Although the hotel itself doesn't have parking, there is plenty near by. Restaurants, pubs and bars are located right outside around the corner but you wouldn't be able to tell from the quiet rooms. The breakfast was more than enough to satisfy every appetite and overall, I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Stavanger to experience this gem.

    « Great location »

    The location is great. Close to everything, and sea view. Old fashion building with nice details. The room was large enough and with high roof and comfortable bed. The breakfast was OK. The service was also good. Very fast Internet bandwidth. The remote control for the TV didn't work, but I didn't bother tell the reception as I didn't need to watch TV.
