special offers

Built in 1898 by Gabriel Block Watne, Kronen Gaard Hotel was originally a quaint seasonal residence out in the country. This lovely destination was transformed into a women’s psychiatric rehabilitation facility some three decades later, which it remained until the early 1980s. Kjell and Sygni Steinsvåg soon acquired the location, renovating it into the luxurious Kronen Gaard Hotel. The hotel is located some five minutes away from the exciting city of Sandnes. Guests can easily venture into this bustling metropolis to experience its many cultural attractions, such as Sverd i fjell, the Science Museum, Dalsnuten, and the Kongeparken.
