Very comfortable beds, newly renovated rooms, very delicate. We had to try six rooms before getting one with a double bed, not twin. The cleaning was overall ok, but the downlights desperately needed cleaning. One of the sinks had a defect, but could still be used. Breakfast was good, but the staff working there clearly knew nothing about hand hygiene

Nice hotel for Norway. Nice staff, good breakfast, good position, beautiful view of the lake from my room, good internet connection. I loved the heating that worked and one could adjust as desired as well as the heated floor in the bathroom and shower.

Nice hotel with nice staff. Clean everywere, good breakfast. Noise from the train early in the morning. The bed was to soft for my wife, but I liked it. Perfect location in the middle og the town, close to a lot of restaurants.

Nice hotel with a great location. Rooms are small but very nice and the bed is fantastic. Nice modern bathrooms but the sink is tiny. Breakfast is not among the best I have seen but good enough. Friendly staff and good service.

Decent beds, OK breakfast that could do without the powdered egg scramble. The bathroom floor is way too hot, and becomes uncomfortable quickly, with no possibility to turn it down. Would return if the rate stays the same.

Stayed three nights in this hotel in conjunction with a national ski competition. The main beds are good. The extra bed provided is possibly the hardest mattress I have ever slept on. Not recommended. Breakfast was good considering the number of persons to be catered for.

We stayed in the Victoria for one night on our way through to Oslo airport. Our room was spotlessly clean although the bathroom was very small. We overlooked the railway station so it was very noisy during the night. Rooms have tea making facilities but no fridges and toiletries are minimal. Bed was very comfortable. We ate dinner and breakfast... More
