Gather the management team in unique surroundings

At Straand Hotel, you can gather your board or management team for professional and social gatherings in beautiful surroundings. We can offer unique meeting places adapted to smaller groups and serve food in intimate settings at the hotel or on our vintage boat, MS Fram. Dine like Knut Hamsun in the fireplace room, enjoy the view of Nisser from the Grandmother's room, raise a glass while sailing around the lake in MS Fram, or get a taste of the real Telemark in the wine cellar or Stabburet. We have rooms suitable for all group sizes.
