  • Restaurant with nice service and excellent views from the terrace

    by espen e on 2019-08-06 010:37 pm

    The hotel restaurant is located on a hill, and from the terrace you have a nice view of the fjord and boat traffic. A great place to relax with good food and drinks. The menu is relatively traditional and family-friendly. The fish soup is available in two sizes and tasted good, with a lot of fish and shells, albeit with a bit of cream flavor. For the kids' simple hamburgers and mussels, very good french fries, or chips as it was called here, are served.

  • Only good for Mountain goats

    by Caroline P on 2019-07-14 01:17 pm

    I stayed at this hotel as part of a historic tour of Norway and I would say that extremely fit people can enjoy it, but all older people should stay elsewhere and take a day trip to the fortress to learn about its historic role in WWI. The terain demands guest hike up steep slopes to their rooms and then up another steep gradient to the dining hall. Once you get there, we were told to go down 20+ steps to reception and then walk up those steps with our drinks if we wanted anything more than water with our dinner! Then at night a security gard made a great deal of noise and bothered me and several others without ever explaining that he was doing a job. Rather complete lack of management skill in hospitality I would say. Take the ferry over for a day trip. Unless you have the energy of a mountain goat.

  • Wonderful Stay

    by 184annien on 2019-03-15 02:55 am

    We spent one night midweek and we're really impressed with the history, the ambience and the wonderful service. The staff went out of their way to look up us. It's unusual having been an old military barracks but the room was very comfortable, the views outstanding and the food very pleasant. It certainly stood out from your run of the mill hotel. Highly recommended

  • Nice on historic grounds

    We went to Oscarsborg for one night at the hotel on a weekend in August. This is a high quality hotel. But be ware of that many of the rooms are former soldier rooms. Thay are really nice! But the building looks like a barrack on the outside - naturally. Small, but very nice bathroom. Fridge in the room, but no content. Ask for a sea view! Half og the rooms have that. I believe there are rooms that are not in the former barrack as well.. The service was good. We had a problem with our key card though. But the most exciting part of staying here is of course the history of the island, and its most sentral part of Norways Word War II history! Google it and read!

  • A place full of History!

    by PrasSukhi on 2018-04-09 05:08 am

    We had a business conference and we travelled to Oscarsborg on rib boats. That was a great adventure in itself! The place has a lot of historical significance. The big guns placed there sank a Nazi naval ship as it tried to enter the Oslo Fjord.

    The hotel, we were told, were barracks for Naval cadets being trained there. The comfort levels however are far greater than those enjoyed by the cadets. They take you around and brief your on the history and stories.

    The breakfast, lunch and dinner options are good. The staff is professional and friendly. Most important is the view! Absolutely breathtaking!
