Exceptional 10.0
Was a nice hotel very central. Very close to Liseb
We had a good time
gb2 night family trip
Fair 4.0
Great for couples who love drilling.
This hotel is ideal if you love the sound of drilling and banging in the morning, in fact they'll do it all day if you like and even if you don't. The bath also had a great feature, where when you drain the bath it filled the bathroom with water so you can use it again to clean your feet and any towels or clothes you've left on the floor, which is really eco-friendly, which is a thumbs up from me. Another stand out feature of this hotel is the lavish bed that makes sure you don't waste any time sleeping in on your holiday by giving you back ache while the sheets slowly cook you alive making sure you get up and go out. What really makes this hotel outstanding though is the service, no sooner had I mentioned any of the above to a member of staff they quickly rushed to do nothing, perfect.

Good 6.0
Not a peaceful holiday stay.
The room and the hotel on the whole were fine and nothing more than what we expected but we were extremely disappointed not to receive any prior warning of major renovation works happening to the hotel during our stay. The exceptionally loud and disruptive drilling into the concrete structure of the hotel began at 9am and continued for hours. The fact that "most" people are up and out of the hotel by this time is irrelevant to the "some" people who are not. When you book a hotel room for a holiday, you expect a certain level or peace to enjoy your time as you please and the staff at the Scandic Opalen had no consideration for this. You should inform people of renovation work prior to a visit so that they can make an educated decision on whether to stay.
