Karola and her staff were so pleasant and accommodating. They really made us feel welcome. This hotel is situated in a spectacular location... it's within walking distance of peaceful lakes and waterfalls, and a short drive if you want to do the Besseggen Ridge hike. I could have sat outside and savored the view all day, and indoors, the common... More

Authentic traditional guesthouse. Staff are warm and kind. The beautiful old style dining room and high quality food more than compensate for the relatively small and simple rooms. Ideal base for day trips on XC skis for those that like gentle terrain and sheltered trails. Lovely sitting rooms if you decide to take the day off to sit by the... More

After a long skiing trip this is a great place to stay. Although the rooms are a bit small this is more than compensated for by the amazing food and the great service by Karola and André. The gorgeous sauna is a real treat.

Thank you very much for your nice and honest review. It is important to mention that our rooms are not spacious, it is not possible to make them bigger and we do not want our guests to pay that either. But our focus the next years will be to make them even more cosy, hope you will find your way... More

I stayed with a friend in february 2013. Nice helpfull owner. Everyday the skiing tracks were tracked. Great skiing tours possible. But snowshoeing " on your own path" was great too. We made are own tracks looking for elks (but didn't encounter one) The atmosphere is very " originally Norwegian" The rooms are not " the biggest" but there is... More

This wonderful mountainhotel takes you back in time in a very pleasant way; the decor of the diningroom and lounge is rustic and appropriate for the setting. The view from most rooms and the terrace is breathtaking and inviting. The rooms are of the kind you would expect in a hotel that merely houses walkers, climbers and naturelovers, simple but... More

The exterior of the hotel is painted black, which seems strange to Americans but is a popular color for buildings in that part of Norway. The only other colors used on buildings seem to be red and mustard. There are some hiking trails nearby, which we went on. The breakfast was good.
