The Hotel

The hotel is an original cluster of houses, and you will enjoy yourself here

Håholmen Sea Cottages consists of 25 buildings, including the main building, meeting rooms, hotel rooms, a pub, a restaurant, and a museum. The guests roam between the buildings here, just like they did in a living fishermen’s community in the olden days.
It is very inspiring to experience the coastal culture and nature this way. Our lecture and conference guests as well as summer tourists completely agree on this.
The hotel has a total of 100 beds in 49 rooms, as well as first-class meeting and lecture facilities.

People have come together to meet here for several hundred years.

Today, it is a lecture and meeting place that is in high demand among visitors from the whole world. Originally, it was a dynamic community based on trade, fishing, and sea transport. There used to be a gathering place for fishermen, sailors, shopkeepers, and merchants here, in the fishing camp Håholmen on Hustadvika, a heritage worth protecting. Now, it is you and the participants of your meeting who will experience the power that is found here.

The history and location of one of the most exposed stretches of the Norwegian coast makes Håholmen unique. The fishing camp consists of 25 buildings, many of them dating back to the 17 th and 18th century; and to a great extent the camp looks just the way it once did. 



Nobody risks getting a room with a view overlooking a grey back yard here

Most rooms are spacious double rooms with a great view. We also have bigger rooms with more bedrooms and a living room.

The rooms are located in various buildings. All rooms have a bathroom with a shower. No rooms have a TV set. All rooms are covered with the wireless Internet network of the hotel.


Food and drinks

Get excited about the great eating experiences

Håholmen is famous for exquisite food. The cooks use local ingredients and recipes and prepare the food from scratch. The fact that it’s sea food that is served in an old fishing camp is hardly a surprise. The choice of wines is great and matches the menu.

Six distinctive serving halls provide a variety of options to choose from, depending on the number of people, the view, and whether the group wishes privacy.

Ytterbrygga (the Outer Pier), first floor is divided into two halls, with a sliding door in between. The total capacity is 120 people.

Ytterbrygga (the Outer Pier), second floor – The lounge – seats up to 50 dinner guests. The accompanying lounges stimulate good conversations after dinner.

Would you like to have a wedding that will be remembered for a lifetime?

Håholmen is a unique setting for the wedding celebration. The whole stay, starting from the arrival on the Viking ship “Kvitserk” and ending with the breakfast the day after, is going to appear almost unreal. The wedding night is spent in the bride and groom’s house by the sea, and the whole islet is closed off for everyone else than the bride and groom with their guests.
The wedding ceremony itself can also be arranged here, if desired.

We at Håholmen Sea Cottages arrange many weddings during a year. Together with the bride and groom, we plan a spectacular event that makes full use of the special charm and characteristic traits of
