Solstrand has a long tradition of hosting wedding receptions with accommodation. Our location by the shore of Bjørnefjorden provides a grand backdrop for your big day.
Solstrand's dining room capacity is related to the number of guest rooms. All celebrations, events and functions, should include overnight stay of a minimum 80% of all guests.
We offer wedding receptions from NOK 1825 per person in 2019.
This includes 1 glass aperitif with light snacks, wedding dinner with wine in private dining room, cakes, and private bar.
In addition to the price for wedding reception comes accommodation with breakfast from NOK 1630 per person in standard double room. Rates are valid in 2019.

Based on years of experience with weddings we have assembled all practical information here. The wedding celebration may consist of, see below:
The wedding ceremony
Wedding cermemony at Solstrand on request. We recommend Lysekloster chapel, Os church or Nore Neset church for the wedding ceremony. The ceremony can also be held at Stallmestergården Moldegård or Galleri Solbakkestova in Os.
When the guests arrive at Solstrand after the ceremony, there is time to socialise. It may be a while since the guests had breakfast, and we recommend serving some appetizers in our beautiful garden or in one of our parlours – depending on the weather. Please contact us for serving suggestions.
We serve aperitifs in the hotel garden or in one of our parlours – depending on the weather.
We recommend placing a gift table in the parlour where cakes, coffee and liquor will be served. The gift table will be ready about 1 hour before the aperitif is served.
If you need a photographer, we recommend Silje Holte. She knows the hotel and its facilities and possibilities well.
We create a proposed table setup suited to the room and the number of guests. Place cards are organised by the bride and groom, and can be placed on the table about one hour before dinner.
Solstrand's flower decorations are simple and classic, and the colours are chosen to suit the room. Flowers are included in the table arrangement. If you have special requests, you may bring your own flowers.
Our banqueting rooms are classic and come in different sizes. We can arrange a large wedding or a more intimate celebration. In keeping with Solstrand's local foundation and international focus, the hotel kitchen offers both Western Norwegian specialties and continental flavours. Our head chef would gladly compose a menu tailored to your wishes. Please contact us for menu suggestions.
We serve coffee and cakes in a separate parlour. For weddings with 50 to 100 guests, we recommend renting a private bar on the 2nd floor, where you can also have your own music and dancing. The party is responsible for the music. If you want to include live music, please note that this venue is suitable for a band with no more than 3 musicians.
Coffee and Drinks
Coffee and liquor is served upon arrival in the coffee parlour/bar.
Coffee and cakes
To order cakes, take a look at our list of recommendations in the above section titled "Special Occasions". Solstrand is not a wedding cake specialist, and we therefore recommend that you contact Lie Nilsen in Bergen. Unfortunately we cannot accept cakes brought by the guests themselves due to limited refrigerator capacity.
Alcohol serving hours for private bar
For celebrations with music and dancing, we recommend renting a separate room and bar for NOK 4.000. We serve beer and liquor until 1 am and music is played until 1.30 am.
The wedding guests sit together for breakfast, which is served Saturdays and Sundays from 7.30–10.30 am.
Checkout time for guests is at 12 am, and at 1 pm for the bride and groom. If the couple want to keep the room longer – between 1 pm and 4 pm on the day of departure – make sure to reserve well in advance. The room will be charged with NOK 500 for late checkout.
The hotel guests have free access to the wellness area towards the fjord, which includes: outdoor and indoor swimming pool, therapy pools with massage jets, steam sauna, Finnish sauna, a sanarium, cold-water pool and fitness room. We also offer body treatments in our spa, including massages, body wraps, baths and treatments for face and feet. We recommend booking any spa treatments well in advance of your arrival at Solstrand. See our Spa menu.
We want your feedback on the details of the wedding celebration at least one month before arrival. The exact schedule and table setup should be with us by 10 days before your arrival. Feel free to contact us to review the plans. Together we will create a successful celebration.
Accommodation are booked through your contact person for the wedding, who is also responsible for bookings. A name list with all relevant details should be sent to us no later than 10 days before arrival.
