Kronen Gaard Hotell

A place you long to return to.


In 1898, timber merchant Gabriel Block Watne separated 17 acres of land from his parents’ farm in Vatne and built what is today Kronen Gaard Hotell. Back then, the family spent their summers in Vatne, a place that soon became known for good food and vibrant gatherings.
