The convoy suite is a restored old transformer station (72 m2) from the turn of the last century, in the middle of historic Risør. The suite is quiet, sunny and secluded from the main street.
Nb! A steep stone staircase leads up to the house, so if have difficulty with stairs, or have small children, another of the suites will be better.
The house is on 2 floors: Downstairs there is hallway, WC, living/dining/kitchen and access to a large (25 m2), sunny and high terrace. Well equipped kitchen.
On the second floor there is a bathroom/WC and 2 bedrooms with a total of 4 beds. In the living room there is 1 extra closet bed that is folded out for use.
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.
