The room was really special. The wallpaper was peeling in the bathroom but the room was otherwise very nice. The stairs do not squeak, which you might expect for an older building that has been remodeled. The restaurant was just average for the price.

Family oriented facilities with nice and comfortable rooms, parking is easy and free and the have a long restaurant with no really attractive menu. Seems that seafood is the top on here but it’s only available on weekends so I had a burger...

Lovely buildings. Reception area with very comfortable armchairs and a warm feeling. Classical music in the background. Breakfast was plentiful.. The bathrooms were small and the shower not easy. But it is an old building and to have en suite bathroom must been difficult to fit. We did not try the restaurant as we felt a very uninteresting short menu.

Hello Viking! Thank you so much for the review. We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. A few bathrooms are a little bit to small, we know that. That is a thing we always carry with us when we are renovating our hotelrooms. We wish you a warm welcome back //Per-Henrik, Tanums Gestgifveri

It was our second time here and this was very disappointing. They still have amazing food and a very pleasant reception guy, BUT. We called and booked a room on Friday and said we gonna come late. The girl confirmed that somebody is going to be there to give us the key or she will call back and tell us where the key was. When we arrived nobody was there, all the doors locked. Nobody took the phone. After a while we had to ask some guests to let us inside and we kept playing "hide and seek" looking for the key. Finally we saw an envelope with a key inside, but the name want ours. Anyway we took a chance - it was middle of the night, we were tired and with a baby. So looking for an other place to sleep was not an option. Next morning the receptionist said it was good that we found a solution and wished a good day and moved us to the room that actually we booked. Well I know for sure that we are not going back there - it feels very unpleasant to be forgotten in the middle of the night.

Hello Ruta! Thank you for you Review! We are very sorry for the missunderstanding that was held between us. We sure knew that you would be coming late - and we did wait for you until midnight. The hotel was closed for the night but there were still staff waiting for you at the restaurant - serving guests. However, there should be a note at the frontdoor telling you were the restaurant is at and that staff is there to help you. The receptionist later also tought that you wouldn't come since she told you to call us if you were later than 10 PM - and we didnt hear anything. We are very happy that you found a solution. We are very sad for the missunderstanding. We really hope that you will stay with us another time - this time with staff waiting for you with a smile. //Per-Henrik, Tanums Gestgifveri

The Gjestgiveriet had been in continuous operation since 1863. Everywhere there is something to look at or to explore. The property has deep history. There are even two old burial mounds nearby. My room was small but comfortable with nice decoration. I liked the comfortable sitting area near the reception. The breakfast room was cheerful and the food delicious. I would like to stay here again.
