The hotel has an exclusive restaurant and a spectacular wine cellar, with over 5,000 bottles of the most distinguished vintages stored in two wines cellars, originally an underground water well. Wine tastings can be arranged. Light floods in through the large panoramic windows in the in-house restaurant serving excellent seasonal Norwegian cuisine and showing Nordic art on the walls. During the summer months, dine out on the terrace or enjoy a nightcap in the cosy lounge by the fireplace.
