If the room I got was redecorated I am glad I did not get an old one. I suppose the hotel reflects it's monopoly standing in Levanger. The rooms are clean and the beds are good, that's about it. They are otherwise very basic as is the whole hotel. Breakfast is ok but also basic. It does the trick but... More

The rooms in the hotel differ considerably. Some of them have been refitted/modernized, but you might get a room with a worn down fitted carpet. Try getting a room facing to the same street as the reception and without the fitted carpet. During a hot summer time there is absolutely no means to cool down the room. If the room... More

Thank you for your review! Some of our rooms are to be upgraded in the not-too-distant future. We refer to the rooms facing the reception street as Park rooms as they also face the city park, and these may very well be requested for 1 or 2 people (sharing a double bed). 3rd and 4th floor rooms facing the park...

Average hotel. One hour from Trondheim. At this weekend every hotel in Trondheim and surroundings where totally overbooked. So we had to go here. The room was Ok. Good service. The breakfast was not in top 50. Ok place to stay one night.

Centrally placed in Levanger, as described by others the hotel is not a design hotel but straightforward with friendly staff. Its located in something that looks like a 50ies building, but rooms have been renovated relatively recently, clean and decent bathrooms, free internet. Some rooms are spacious with views to the small park. The hotel restaurant/cafe/pub serves decently priced light... More

For those unacquainted with Levanger, the small town has a limited selection of accommodation. However, Backlund is alright and probably the best in town. Decent breakfast. Wireless internet free of charge. A little noise from the corridor and the street, but not really a problem. Somewhat run worn, but acceptable. If one finds oneself in Levanger, this is probably the... More

Stayed one night at the 3rd floor, room 306. Nice and clean room, but with a view of the backyard. The staff was friendly and helpful. Free internet and a small, but tasty breakfast. If you travel by car you have to pay a parking fee, 12 NOK per hour. The hotel is situated in the town center with many... More

Nothing fancy or pretentious about this place and the view from our room was uninspiring. The room itself was spacious and comfortable, just what we needed at the end of our wildlife trip. Dinner was basic bar food but plentiful and my husband won a free dessert - they leave you mysterious messages with your cutlery (very mysterious if you... More

This is a very central hotel in Levanger, the building is old and dated although the rooms are renovated, clean and of a decent standard. The reception staff were very friendly and helpful. During my stay there was a new lift being installed which meant i had to walk with all my bags to the 4th floor, not something you... More

We booked this hotel with the coop hotel deal, so the rate was very good. Upon arrival we checked into a very very dated room with a musty smell from the carpet. We could not stay in such a dated room with a smell. We asked to change rooms. We were then given a renovated room with laminate floors, no... More

Old hotel in the centre of Levanger. If you have to stay in Levanger this is very OK. The train station is just a short walk from here. For local school student's they seemed to have OK prices - otherwise it's overpriced. Hotel is old and you feel it - rooms needed upgrading. On the other hand there was renovating... More
