When the hotel owner will accommodate their own guests, they often send them to The Guest House in summer.
Other suites can be larger and more luxurious but the charm here is difficult to resist.
The suite has living room and small kitchen downstairs with huge glass doors that open on to the garden, with a heated pool from May - September.
There is a small bathroom with shower and heated floor.
Upstairs there is a spacious bedroom with double or twin bed, and doors that open onto a small balcony with a view to the garden and the historic Risør Church.
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.
