In June-September the capacity can be extended by rooms in an adjacent building, the Annexe.
The Annexe was built around 1880, and was originally used as barracks during the construction of the Bergen Railway. The hotel acquired the building, and it is now used as residence for the staff. The hotel burnt down at the beginning of the war, and after that the Annexe served as a lodge. This lasted up to 1954, when the new hotel was opened. The Annexe has been renovated, and in the summertime it serves as a lodge.
