By car

Risør is a short distance from the E18 highway between Oslo and Stavanger, approx. 2.5 hours from Oslo and 1.5 hours to Kristiansand.

We have parking in Storgata 5 (NOK 150 per day), and in Strandgata by Tollboden (NOK 150 per day). We also have a total of 7 charging stations in the city center.

Suites in Buvika have their own free parking, no charging facilities.

By bus

There are good bus connections from the major cities to Risør, both with Nor-Way bus express and Vy.

We recommend the service from Nor-Way express because they have corresponding local buses from the stop on the E18 to Risør town centre.

See to book.

By train

You can take the train from Oslo or Stavanger to Gjerstad which is half an hour away from Risør by car. We are happy to book a taxi if you come by train.

By boat

Risør guest harbour is a short walk from the hotel, and it is also possible for boats to be moored in the inner harbour.

Frequently Asked Questions
When is Check-in/Check-out?
Check-in is from 15:00 at the reception, Storgata 5. It may be possible to check-in at 14:00, just check with the reception before arrival. In summer, especially in July, check-in is usually at 16.00 - that's because it takes quite a long time to wash a suite, and our cleaning staff must have enough time if there are many new arrivals.

Check-out is 11:00 in July, and 12:00 the rest of the year. It is often possible to get a late check-out - again just check with us if it is possible.

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