Støtvig Hotell: "Great place just south of Oslo" Top 5 Page for this destination Norway Hotel Tip by Saagar

Støtvig ("Stoetvig") is a shallow bay on the coast due south of Moss, about 45 minutes away from Oslo. If you travel from the south into Norway on the E18 and don't quite make it to Oslo, this is a good place to stay. Likewise, if you are in Oslo but would like to stay at the sea coast, this is a similarily good option. If you are in transit to or from tha south coast, note that there is a ferry connection between Moss and Horten so you can avoid going around to Oslo.
I have visited for multi-day conferences and as restaurant guest while staying nearby. I really liked the old room section, and I had a room with a sea view. It is definitely not a top luxury hotel, but decently appointed and very well kept.

Unique Qualities: Støtvig is an old-fashioned hotel, where rooms and sections have been added through the ages, so it is a mixed-architecture, sort of maze indoors. The room comes in several categories (thus there is a price variation), and the place caters for long-term guests also. Located right on the beach, only fronted by a terrace and garden, the kids can run on the beach. Fishing, swimming, boat options as well.
The place is regionally famous for its food, and the buffet breakfasts, lunch as well as dinners are great. Seasonal, traditional foods available, much in the way of the mountain ski hotels. Their seafood buffets are very well known. They have conference/meeting rooms and provide a good alternative to stale boardrooms in Oslo. One of Norway's best golf courses is next door.
