Clarion hotel is ideally located by the seaside at Smeasundet. From the restaurant at the ground floor (1st floor in Norwegian) you have a beautiful view of the life along the quays. One nice thing about the Clarion hotel is they provide a complimentary evening meal/buffet. The hotel has a fabulous corridor decoration with high-lights from famous visitors from the... More

compared with other clarion group hotels the food was served without feeling and insperation, as guest you felt unwelcome right from the beginning, the garage was full of used old things and was looking more like a junkyard

Located in an old, refurbished building right on the waterfront. The helpful staff were a welcome change compared to many capital city hotels. They went out of their way to make us welcome to both the hotel and to the Haugesund area generally. We were very surprised to find out the tariff included not only breakfast but also dinner and...

Clarion Collection Hotel Amanda might not have the most modern or fancy interior, but the hotel situated at the beautiful Haugesund waterfront wil compensate in hospitality and providing that little extra that even makes a long stay working away from home a great experience.

With NOK at 8 per the dollar Norway is still an expensive country. The inclusion of breakfasts and dinners make this hotel a great value. With four of us traveling we could get together at the lovely outdoor tables near the water and watch the world go by. The staff is very helpful. If you have rented a small car... More

Very good location at the pier. Cramped in the breakfast room, little privacy at the tables. Standard Twin room were small and a little dark. Good snacks were served complimentary. Expensive hotel, presumably due to festival this weekend. Little value for money.

The hotel is not grand and spectacular, but location is great, price is good, and it's the only hotel I have ever experienced to have such an offer throughout the day with making your own waffles, free evening meals, and snacks. All included. Room was nice and clean. But best of all, the friendly attitude. Look no further for your... More

We stayed in the CasaBlanca Suite on the 3rd floor for 2 weeks, Wow what a view. When we arrived, it was late and the front desk (Lise) greeted me by name and said welcome to Haugesund. Her English was perfect. Everyone that we met at the hotel was wonderful. We had reserved parking and 3 times during our stay... More

I travel to Haugesnd very frequently for business and the Amanda hotel is the one to be. After having tried few others i realized there's nothing better around in terms of hospitality, location, quality of the rooms, as well as unparalled service from the staff! Strongly recommended. If there are any opportunities I recommend the superior rooms that faces the... More
