My husband & I exchanged our Marriott property into a Diamond Resorts owned 2 bed, 2 1/2 bath unit at Gala Fjellgrend via Interval International on July 5th. We were a little dubious re the accommodation but we need not have worried.The cabin was exactly as pictured on the Diamond Resorts official web site. So cosy, with everything we needed... More

We were a family of 6, four adults and two children and the four bedroom cabin worked well for us for the four nights we stayed in July. All four bedrooms are on the ground level -- two with two single beds and two with bunk beds. The cabin was about twenty years old as were the furnishings, but it... More

This is a beautiful, away from it all, mountain resort in Norway. About 3 hours from Oslo airport. be sure you rent a car,because you will want to drive and you will go stir crazy. The resort is actually in shoulder season, offers meals only every other day, and none of the activities are open (no biking, no canoes, no... More

We stayed at the cabin mid January for a week. It is difficult to give one rating for the property, as the cabins are wonderful - well equipped kitchen, toasty heated cabins (it was on average -14 degrees the week we were there), heated bathroom floor, hot/cold water on demand (no waiting!), super quiet at night, and within walking distance...

Stayed there for three days over Christmas 2013. Very nice cosy hotel. Rooms are simple but very good. No safe or minibar though. Plus points for having around 5 English movie channels on the TV for free. The morning buffet is good, evening dinner menu seems to be very much only 1 or 2 things one can choose from -... More

We stayed in the warm comfort of Gala cabins, and had a lot of trips in the beautiful surroundings. The area is particularly relevant for national parks (Rondane, Jothunheim) and magnificent landscapes. After so many km by car, we loved the cosy athmosphere of our cottage in the woods.

We didn't know what to expect, as we could not find the hotel by the name we had (Gålå Fjellgrend), and went hoping it wouldn't be a miserable Christmas. The cabins were absolutely lovely, and far more comfortable than we expected! It was decorated very nicely, and was well supplied with all things needed to cook for a family. They... More

The cabine we had has 61 sqere meter. Very spacy and comfortable. It is about 4 kilometer from the hotel reception. The lake is about 600 meters from the place, but you can spot some parts of it from the cabin. There is all you need in the cabin, but no wi-fi. You must have a car to enjoy this... More

We stayed in the cabins belonging to the hotel. over New Year They were really nice. The skiing was great. Truly door to door and the ski school was good with no queues for the lifts even during this high season period. Night tabogganing was fun. However there is absolutely no apres ski whatsoever. Just one cafe which is open... More
