Thon is one of Norway's largest hotel chains and takes its social and environmental responsibilities very seriously. All of the hotels in Norway owned exclusively by Thon Hotels are Eco-Lighthouse certified, with a range of sustainable practices – including reduction of waste, efficient energy use and the use of environmentally friendly products.
Electricity is provided from renewable energy sources – switching to a renewable energy option through a certified renewable energy provider will help the chain to reduce its carbon footprint by as much as 75 per cent. Food sustainability is also a key consideration, with local and organic food on offer.

The welcome we received at was one of the best we've ever had – exceptionally friendly reception staff greeted us on arrival and made every effort to get us settled into our room as quickly and efficiently as possible.

There is a range of different room types available, including a wonderful business room with a unique semi-circular balcony – perfect for enjoying that view! This room is extremely spacious and comfortable, with a large sofa (that converts to a comfy sofa bed that's big enough for two kids) a flatscreen TV and modern tiled bathroom.
Facilities include tea and coffee in the room – with a fancy coffee machine, for real, fresh coffee – and free, fast wifi. Fresh flowers in the room were a lovely, welcoming touch.
Breakfast is served in the adjacent Egon Restaurant, where a full range of food is available, including hot dishes such as bacon and eggs – all very fresh and tasty.
