The name "The Consulate" comes from the time that the hotel was home to the Royal Swedish Consulate to Risør, and this suite is truly stately.
It is a historic house built in 1863 as the rectory to Risør Church (built 1647), and afterwards was for many years Risør's telephone exchange. When the exchange was closed in the early 80s, the house was completely restored by the hotel owners.
From the entrance one comes into the cosy cellar, with open fire and seating, and the original wine cellar. Upstairs there is a very comfortable lounge and dining room with space for up to 20 dinner guests. Perfect for a party with friends or family.
From the living room there is a door to a large sunny terrace with a view to the garden which has a heated pool which is at your disposal.
There is a well equipped kitchen with table and chairs, and across the hall is a double bedroom with bookcases and a fireplace in the corner.
Up in the second floor are three further bedrooms; two double and one single.
Many guests choose to also rent "The Guesthouse Suite" on the other side of the garden.
The yellow house in Buvika, locally known as "The Vatican", is a baroque house built in 1750 with many original and rare features both inside and out. A painstaking restoration has created four very charming suites and a lovely garden with a view of the sea. The house is 800m from the town square.
The seven suites in Kragsgate are gathered around a lovely courtyard in the heart of the old town, 150 meters from the harbour and town square. The suites combined have space for 31 guests. Reception and parking are 150 meters away in Storgata.
