The great thing about living in Risør is that it's a short distance to everything. Most things are within walking distance, but with our electric bikes you can get a little further and explore the fantastic natural areas right outside the door.

Frequently Asked Questions
When is check-in/check-out?
Check-in is from 15.00 at our reception in Tollboden, Strandgata 10. It may be possible to check in at 14.00 if the room is ready, just check with the reception before arrival. In the summer, especially in July, check-in is generally at 16.00 - this is because it takes quite a long time to clean a suite, and our cleaning staff must have enough time if there are many new arrivals.

Check-out is at 11.00 in July, and at 12.00 the rest of the year. It is often possible to get a late check-out - again, just check with us if this is possible.

We arrive very late, is it possible to check in?
It is always possible to check in! We do not have a 24-hour reception but there is always one of us nearby, if you arrive after the reception is closed, just arrange the check-in before arrival or call when you take the E18 towards Risør.

It is not allowed to bring a dog or other animals to the hotel, unless it is a guide dog and then only by appointment. Sorry!
We know that it is not popular among you with four-legged friends, but we have some sensitive antiques, furniture and fabrics in the suites, and have unfortunately experienced too many times that things are destroyed by pets or that it has been troublesome for other guests with barking, etc.
