It will re-open again on the 1st of April 2019 with 257 new rooms and suites, six restaurants & bars, a beautiful spa & fitness, a ballroom and conference facilities for 300 persons.
“Britannia Hotel has a special place in my heart and I`m very satisfied and proud that we can re-open as a member of The Leading Hotels of the World.

I`ve stayed at several Leading Hotels throughout the years and I`ve always been impressed by the high level of service that I experience at the member hotels”. Owner, Odd Reitan.
“Our goal for Britannia is to become one of the top hotels in Scandinavia and our vision is that the hotel becomes a destination in itself.
