The bones of this hotel might be 1970s, but its skin is contemporary – a revamp has filled the main lounge with swooshy furniture, designer lamps, trendy fabrics and coffee table books. The rooms can't entirely hide their retro origins (bathrooms are dated), but the cracking Lustrafjord views make up for shortcomings. The fjord-facing terrace and manicured lawn are stunning.
Good food is served here too: burgers, steaks and grilled chicken on the bar menu, and more upmarket, creative dishes in the restaurant downstairs.
