Anticipated to open in January 2020, Scandic Voss will become Scandic’s ninth hotel in the Hordaland region.
The town’s first accommodation to be operated by a large hotel company, the 216-room property will feature meeting facilities for 350 people, a restaurant and bar.
Voss is both a summer and winter destination and, to further improve ski slope accessibility, a new cable car lift will be built next to the hotel.
A one-hour drive from Norway’s second largest city of Bergen, Voss stands out as an area of solid growth, with hotel stays rising by 11 percent in 2017.
Even Frydenberg, CEO, Scandic Hotels Group, noted, “This new hotel solidifies our market leading position in the growing region of Western Norway where we already have eight hotels in Bergen.
“To be able to offer a combined leisure and conference hotel so close to Norway’s second largest market will further strengthen our presence in the area while accentuating our hotel portfolio in the leisure segment.”
