Good hotel situated just at the end of the main shopping street in Lillehammer. Excellent breakfast and a big plus for the evening meal that is included in the price. Rooms are a bit impersonal but otherwise a very good hotel!

+ friendly staff, rooms, cleanliness, breakfast, waffles, diner buffet, location, price. - the hotel is undercconstruction as are the neighbours accross the street, so it's a little noisy in the early morning. But it also means that they're building for the future and for the comfort of their guests. Can't wait to see the result, maybe next year.

Very good service. Perfect location. Free coffee and waffles. The rooms are standard. The staff was allways in a good mood. The hotel is close to restaurants, shops and whatever you might need. Very nice place to relax in.

We needed a place to stay between Trondheim and Fredrikstad, and found Lillehammer to be our best choice. Clarion Hotel Lillehammer is one of the two best hotels in Lillehammer. The hotel is currently under rehabilitation and a new wing is under construction, but that has very little impact on the visits. A rehabilitation is needed as the old part... More

We were disappointed about this hotel! The room not very nice, view onto a building site! Parking on the street in front of the hotel. Staff ok but nothing very welcoming! The evening meal: POOR! I would not recommend this hotel, unless nothing else is available.

This hotel is currently being renovated and that is good. I cannot speak for more than the room we stayed in. It was very dated, no aircon and a bed the size of a single bed. Once the hotel is done up I think it will be great. Breakfast was ok, staff friendly. Central location.

This hotel really takes care of its guests. Their way of serving customers is beyond anything I have ever come across. I was there only for one night with a tour group and all the services did not include to our visit but when I saw the way they think about the guests I would surely stay in this hotel... More

Stayed here for one night in June. The location is great, the hotel looks nice and has a good atmosphere. However, the selection of different bread types etc for breakfast could be better - the breakfast was very basic by Norwegian standards. Also, they have twin beds that does not work when you are a couple - they slide away... More

The hotel contacted us prior to our visit, saying that the kitchen would be under construction, and the included dinner would be just bread and soup. It was nice of them to let us know, and we decided to stay anyway. We didn't mind the kitchen, but scaffolding outside one of our rooms was not pleasant. Rooms were ok, but... More

Hello Thank you very much for your kind feedback. The kitchen is now (since end of May) totally renovated and up and going and again. Thank you very much for your patience during this period. Scaffolding is not very nice, but due to safety, they have to be there during the building. We are all looking forward to the day... More

Have stayed here often. Love the free simple dinner buffet, coffee at all times and waffles in the afternoon. Helpful receptionists. This hotel is expanding which means scaffolds and barracks outside many windows. Which again means no view, closed curtains and uncertain open window at night. Still love the place.
