This place was great. It was exactly what I was looking for.
IMPORTANT: There is no shuttle. This place is fairly out of the way (about a 45 minute drive from the Stavanger Airport). You will need to rent a car if you're planning on staying here. Paying for a taxi to/from wherever you'd like to go would be pretty expensive. Also, rental car agencies from the airport close at 9pm, so keep that in mind for when you're booking your flight.
This trip was booked with being in the outdoors in mind. If you're going with the intent of staying in a city DO NOT book here.
The rooms were excellent. Behind the Receptionist/Restaurant building are the rooms. They are cabins that have been split into quadrants. Each quarter of the cabins are there own clean private rooms: bed, TV, table, bathroom, etc.
Aside from that, the restaurant served delicious food. Breakfast was a complimentary buffet, and lunch/dinner were freshly prepared entrees that will not leave you hungry.
The main purpose of the trip was to climb Preikestolen which was about an hour trip away counting the ferry.
I will definitely be staying here again.
I searched Expedia for a hotel in Stavanger and Expedia listed this hotel. however Sandness is not in Stavanger, it is a completly different city! This may not be the fault of the hotel, however is still cost me approx £33 to get from Sandess rail station to this hotel by taxi. I arrived at 19:30hrs after traveling from Oslo and was told the Resturant would close at 20:00, so no time for even a shower to freshen up, i had to dump my bags in my room and go to order food immediately! I booked a Double room with a queen size bed, firsly i was given a single room, then a twin room and after returning to the hotel reception for a third time, and demanding a queen size bed, i was then given my third room, with the requested and booked bed size. This would be a nice hotel for a wedding party, but not what i was looking for, and this may be the fault of Expedia listing, which i intend to take up with them drectly.
The staff prepared an excellent early morning breakfast for our 4AM checkout. Good location across from a city park. Currnetly there is road construction in the surrounding area that made access a bit difficult. Once complete there should be no problems.
Everything is relative, right? I thought this place was a very good value given that it's Norway and everything costs double compared to the States. My room was small compared to stateside rooms, but it was clean, the staff was friendly, and I paid about what I would have paid in the states. Very quiet, nice beach with gravel walking / bicycling path along the water right outside. It's not the Waldorf-Astoria, but that's not what I paid for. I would stay again.
