The Orangery at Kronen Gaard Hotel
We look forward to welcoming you to our new orangery at Kronen Gaard Hotel in the summer of 2023.
This splendid greenhouse will serve as both a restaurant and a greenhouse. With views of the lush fields, delightful scents from the garden, and, most importantly, the delicious flavors from locally sourced ingredients and our own produce, this will be an oasis for our guests year-round.
The name “orangery” originates from palace gardens and parks in France in the 18th century. It was built as a more elegant greenhouse for cultivation, storage, and leisure, with higher ceilings and a more classic appearance.
Here, we will be able to accommodate around 100 guests who can enjoy the beautiful sight of green plants and herbs growing under the glass roof, and a stunning starry sky as evening descends.
We have extensive experience as hosts for weddings, Christmas parties, events, courses, and conferences of various sizes. Now, we are excited to create even more magical moments and make the orangery a place you’ll long to return to.
We are happy to tailor your next event in the orangery to your preferences.
Please contact us for more information and inquiries at email@example.com.
More information will be provided soon.
Kronen Gaard Hotell
The yellow Swiss villa, hidden behind the majestic 1907 weeping beech tree, emerges as a brilliant sight as you drive into the courtyard. Here, amidst the beautiful cultural landscape and protective beech trees, lies our historical gem, just a 5-minute journey from Sandnes city center and 15 minutes from Sola Airport and Stavanger city center.
The history of Kronen Gaard
Rich in history, Kronen Gaard’s main house was built in 1898 by a timber dealer named Gabriel Block Watne. Back then, the family used it as a summer residence, and it quickly became a place where family and friends gathered.
Today, Kronen Gaard Hotell offers elegant, traditional accommodation in the beautiful Sandnes countryside. The charm of its past has been preserved, and today the hotel is a member of The Historic Hotels and Restaurants of Norway.
The food is the crown jewel
Kronen Gaard’s food philosophy is that honesty lasts the longest. With real and honest food, we mean that the ingredients are sourced from local suppliers, and we prioritize pure flavors without too much decoration. This way, the food is influenced by the surroundings, contributing to anchoring the hotel with an original and authentic cuisine. We are so proud of our food that we have chosen to build the kitchen in an open layout, so that all our visitors can admire the culinary process and savor the aromas when their own meals are being prepared.
Kronen Gaard is one of The Historic Hotels and Restaurants.
