We went on a weekend getaway with our 6-year old girl to Trondheim. After weeks of working late, it was time to spoil ourselves a bit. We stayed in a Superior Room, and got a room dedicated to Flettfrid Andresen, a former star "drag queen" from Trondheim. The room was great, the bed was nice, and our daughter got a... More

Clean comfortable room, but the bathroom was... More

We were absolutely astonished by the fantastic breakfast. The variety of dishes presented and the quality of each and everyone that we tried was absolutely outstanding. The room was very quiet and we slept very good.

The hotel facade is very classical and the interior is also nice and comfortable, the room is just fine, but the breakfast is amazing! Many types of salmon and bread, juices from wild berries and many other types of food for all kind of tastes, I have never had a breakfast like that in any other hotel (not only for... More

I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions but never written a review. The Thon group took over the hotel a few years ago and recently bought the entire building. This will lead to upgrading of some of the older rooms. I really like staying here. It can be a bit difficult sometimes to find your room as there... More

It has been many years since I stayed at this hotel, and I wanted to check if the "old glory" still existed, but I must admit that I became very disappionted. Especially with the Palmehaven. The hotel is too crowdy and the service is not top-notch enough to be called a luxury hotel.

Great location. Old historic hotel with medium sized rooms. Old, slow elevator. The rooms have not been refurbished in many years. Probably 15 to 20 years. Ok furnished with good sized flat screen TV and wifi. Tested to 5.75 Mbps. Overly expensive minibar. Beer Nkr 63.- (3 times the price in the store around the corner) The bathroom has old... More

My friend and I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights, and we thought it was marvellous! The included breakfast was just amazing! The Britannia's breakfast was the best we had at any hotel in Norway. The spread was presented beautifully, and the breakfast area had a wonderful setting - felt like you were having breakfast in a garden somewhere.... More

I really enjoyed breakfast and you probably won't find better. The wheat-prducts was a bit stale, but easter in Norway does not bode well for fresh products. I enjoyed a great smoothie, but would've appreciated the personalized omelet... probably the only thing I would recommend for improvement. I visited the spa with two children and it was great and is... More
