When the owners of Det lille Hotel will accommodate their own guests, they often send them to the Guesthouse.
Other suites may be both bigger and more luxurious, but the charm here is hard to resist – you really feel like a privileged, private guest.
The guesthouse has a kitchen, shower/wc and living room on the ground floor. From the living room you come out through large glass doors to a beautiful, paved patio with seating area and heated swimming pool (from May - September).
The bedroom with balcony is located on the second floor; From here there are lovely views of the garden, rooftops and church steeple.
Closer to a perfect southern small-town idyll you can hardly get!
Buvikveien 26, locally called "the Vatican", is a listed house built in the 1700s as a holiday house to one of Risør's wealthiest businessmen.
The building was painstakingly restored by the hotel and today houses four fine suites with exquisitely charming décor and all modern amenities.
Here you can really dream of living as a Risør native during the age of sail!
Buvika is 900m away from reception, a lovely walk and there are good bikes included. There is private parking at the house.
Guests can have breakfast delivered to the suite.
Built in 1864 after a great fire destroyed much of the town, for many years there was a hotel/guest house on the 2nd and 3rd floors, first run by Søstrene Gislesen, and then Henny Paulsen.
Famed shipowner I.M. Skaugen also had his first shipping office here.
The whole block was completely restored by the hotel and today there is a reception and breakfast room on the 1st floor and two great suites on the floors above.
Tucked away in a charming and quiet courtyard in the heart of Risør's historic centre, there are eight of our suites.
All suites have a maritime theme, with from two to five beds. In addition, the Sagafjord suite has room for 16 around the dining table – perfect for a party or meeting.
Most buildings are from 1864, originally two residential buildings with horse stables and haylofts. Plus the Convoy Suite, which is Risør's first electricity transformer built in 1900.
The restoration work here has been awarded serveral national prizes.
