Rooms at Clarion Collection Hotel Grand Bodo

Rooms are decorated in a traditional European style, belying the more modern feel of the lobby and reception areas, with polished parquet wooden floors and lavish bedspreads. Unique touches like flamboyant wallpaper and colourful curtains add a dash of colour to proceedings, and each of the rooms is different. Selected rooms also feature a hot tub.

Food and drink

Room rates include an extensive daily breakfast, with organic options also available, and an evening meal, with a buffet of soup, salad, a warm dish and dessert. Dining options close to the hotel include local favourite Bryggeri Kaia, which serves fantastic fish and a good range of beers, and Lovolds, Bodo’s oldest eatery which continues to offer the same traditional, hearty Norwegian cuisine it always has.


The hotel’s ‘relaxation corner’ provides exactly what it says on the tin, with a choice of a sauna, steam sauna and infrared sauna as well as a seating area with reclining chairs. The hotel also has a gym, with a range of fitness equipment available as well as fitness classes. Maps of jogging and walking trails and advice are available at reception.
