Arrived at the hotel at noon. Friendly staff at reception. Got a key - and so began the hunt for the room. The hotel is made ​​up of several buildings - and for me it was a long walk. Decent room, but no AC, and when I opened the window it was just noise from a fan system in another... More

Hotel with a long history and good reputation for more than 110 years. And now it is not only old and traditional, it is also up to date with a delightful spa-department, free use for paying hotel-guests. Really enjoyable. Really relaxing. And on top a very nice breakfast in the lovely main-restaurant Palmehaven, The Palm Garden.

Old hotel located in several joining buildings. Quite difficult to find again if you venture out for a walk. We were there for a large party, and it was all right, but very conventional. And they insisted that the whole party cleared the venue for 45 minutes while they rearranged the furniture after the meal, which is most annoying. The... More

My reason number one to return to this excellent hotel is the free use of the excellent spa department! It is a great treat to the body! And it is special to have a room in the Artist's Street, with labels of famous Norwegian painters. And as a wine drinker as I am, I also enjoy my daily glasses of... More

It is an impressive hotel, all classy and huge in the down town area. Very good spot, great breakfast (really amazing variety and quantities in an enormous room with fountains and marble columns-impressing really) but in any case you can tell that this hotel is old. Thumbs up for the heavy dark curtains (you will appreciate that if you travel... More

Stayed for a night with in a family room. Broken sofa, wall deco torn apart, dark hair (from others) on the white bathroom tiles, poor cleaning. No air conditioning at all, impossible to sleep with screaming seagulls outside the window all through the night. Seriously a big let-down, and certain parts of the hotel is in desperate need of serious... More

Stayed three nights in a standard room (two actually because I changed to a higher floor) and I loved it. You can always find minor issues but they were just that - minor. Amazing breakfast! I would love to return to the Britannia but not sure about Trondheim (sorry but not an awful lot to do).

My wife and I spent two nights at the hotel and would in fact love to come back. Receptionists welcomed us with a big smile and check-in procedure went smooth and nice. A somewhat confusion about the two elevators was solved quick. The room was clean and had all we needed. Beds also very good. If there is one thing... More

I was very impressed of the service in general. This hotel provided me a unique experience with warm and hospitable staff, good food, relaxing spa, swimming pool and sauna. Matching the historical clean city of Trondheim is nothing but a wonderful experience...I shall return:)
