The breakfast is very basic and I have to ask for warm milk and the scrambled eggs it's look like something else. Really bad.
The bed is old and with a roll in the middle.
The shower is too small and not comfortable at all.
From the window the view of trash in the back of the building.
Bad experience.

Dear guest.
Thank you for the feedback. This is actually the first time I have heard of someone wanting warm milk. I hope and expect that our staff helped you with that. Different guests like different scrambled eggs. We receive lots of compliments for our breakfast, including the eggs, so I am sorry to hear that you where not satisfied. If you would take your time to contact me at nils@activehotel.no or +47 418 50 418, I would love to hear more about your opinion.
Now we are almost finished with painting the building, so hopefully you will have a cleaner view the next time if you come back. And if you do come back, let me know. I will make sure that you get a room with a new bed. We have switched out many, and we are still working on switching out the rest.
I also want't to remind you that we have a water park that is included in the room price, so we like to think that this makes up for some of the smaller bathrooms.

I hope to hear from you again.

Kind Regards
Nils S Wilhelmsen

My 5 * are because you get what you pay for. As previously review has stated, the rooms and bathrooms are small. None of the rooms have a nice view. My room had everything it needed and was probably newly decorated. A bed with clean white linnen, A TV, free internet with good connection, room to hang my clothes and a clean bathroom. Breakfast cost 60 NOK, and there the same: You get what you pay for. If you want to eat breakfast in town, its double the price!

The best thing for me was the possibility to exercise at the gym just opposite. Very nice and large gym and fitness with all kind of group exercise including crossfit similar exercise. They even have swimming pool and sauna, so if you think the bathroom is too small, why not get in there for a steam and a shower?

The walk into the town center is a nice walk over a bridge and water and takes about 10-20 min depending on your pace. There are restaurants at 10 minutes slow walk on the Nøtterøy side where thera is a shop aswell. No shops on site at the hotel.

Free parking, which in town is between 100 and 300NOK/night!
Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. 24h open.
I booked by room on Active hotels webpage and the price was cheaper than on tripadvisor.
I work from time to time in Tønsberg, and I will come back and stay!

Takk for flott tilbakemelding.
Fint at du setter pris på treningsanlegget og Badeland. Jeg kan informere barnefamilier og at vi har gratis barnepass til gitte tider, i tilfelle de voksne vil ta seg en treningsøkt eller en dupp i boblebadet.

Velkommen igjen!

We have stayed at this hotel almost every year when we have been attending the Slottsfjell festival and we're really happy about the place. First of all, it's not a hotel in you general sense, more like a motel-thing, but it suits our need perfectly. Rates are much lower than the hotels in Tønsberg city centre (although they're starting to get a bit too close, considering the difference in product, so here they should watch out) and parking is also free.

The normal rooms are very small, more like cabins, but they suit us well and now they were even upgraded. The family rooms are closer to what you might regard a normal double room, but still on the small side as well as the bathrooms. As long as you are aware of this though you should be fine.

Breakfast can be bought at a cheap price, but is suitable to it's price level and does the job. Included in the rate you also have access to the pool and water slides in the neighbour building. The walk to town is about 10-15 minutes.

Would come again if we're attending next year as well! :)

This is probably one of the cheapest room in this area with a low price.

Initially, I reserved the room for 7 nights but I check out on the second day instead. The room is way too small for a traveller with two mid size luggages. I can barely go to the toilet from my bed due to my own luggages. I checked in together with one of my business partner, however his room is even worst with full of dusts on the floor. And so, we both decided to check out the second day and move to a better stay instead.

The hotel location is rather far from the TORP Sandefjord Airport. It takes about 30 minutes by taxi. However, it is possible to walk from the hotel to the harbour side with full or restaurants and town area with grocery stores by taking about 20 minutes. (Warns: There is no restaurants or shops around near the hotel, you must go to the town and get something you want.)

Internet speed is fast and stable. It is also free of charge where you can use freely roaming in within the hotel compound.

My room is clean and acceptable. However, there is no fridge, no kettle and no iron in the room due to room space.

Staff can speaks English and is helpful.

Breakfast is full of choices where you can get the typical milk, orange juice, apple juice, breads, meat slices, eggs, omelette, etc. And it is recommended to purchase the breakfast as it is quite affordable in my opinion, also you do not have other restaurant/cafe for breakfast in that area unless you get some breads or snacks from the store in the town area.

The only perk provided by this hotel is the free access to their waterpark and gym centre. However, I do not have the chance to visit the centre but I think it is well worth to mention here.

We had made reservations for a small group, where they managed to lose two of our rooms and weren't really apologetic about it either. The service was the slowest I've ever experienced anywhere, finding out anything in the apparently extremely complex computer system of theirs took 20 minutes. Everyone who actually got a room found them horrible.

Dear guest.

I am very sorry to see that your experience with our hotel is disastrous. Your identity and date of stay is hidden from me in Tripadvisor, so it’s difficult for me to see what went wrong in your case. Please contact me on nils@activehotel.no or on my cellular phone +47 418 50 418, so I can find out the circumstances around your reservation and slow service as you describe it. This is not acceptable by our standards!
Last week fourteen of our hotel rooms got a “make-over”. So the rooms you are referring too, may not exist anymore.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Best regards
Nils S Wilhelmsen
General manager
