Dating back to 1900, this traditional friendly hotel, located right on the harbour front next to the boat quay, provides an excellent base from which to explore this fascinating city and beyond. If you chose to stay at Hotel Victoria then the town centre is just on your doorstep, this is perfect for the many museums, shops, restaurants the small city has to offer. The boat harbour for excursions is just a few steps away, so taking a visit to the infamous Pulpit Rock could not be easier. The history of the hotel is mirrored in the décor with large windows, chandeliers and wooden floors throughout.

The inner harbour location means many of the rooms have beautiful views, most including a comfortable seating area as well. The hotel features a restaurant and bar in the building, the Big Horn Steak House and the popular Holmen Bar. The Holmen Bar is award-winning for its beer and has the largest selection of whiskey in the Stavanger region.

Located in the south-western corner of Norway, Stavanger is a small, intimate city with a fascinating history and pleasant harbour front. The quaint cobbled streets and white wooden houses of the old town date back to the 18th century and house ‘Norwegian Canning Museum’ detailing Stavanger’s former importance in the canning industry. The narrow streets are lined with museums, shops and a good selection of restaurants and bars. Outside of the city, the main attractions for this region are cruises to the picturesque Lysefjord, home to the iconic ‘Pulpit Rock’ as well as the lesser known ‘Flor & Fjaere’ island - a paradise for flower lovers - which is simply out of this world!
