Preferre to stay in the old building due to atmosphere and phasade. New architecture looks cheap and to simple . Though nice furnitures in suite and beds are comfortable . Misses morning gawn and slippers in suite and no telephone !! Lack of service and food has decreased quality which is very bad. Nice ski in and out but slopes... More

Vestlia hotel was enlarged with a new wing last year with new chic apartments and a large, new swimming pool. The new exit from the ski storage room goes directly to the slopes. This is a perfect ski-in-ski-out arrangement. The mainly non-norwegian staff is great and as friendly and helpful as ever. However, this year we had to stand in... More

The overall stay was not as expected. And it is a shame is takes so little to improve the quality of the Resort. Firstly there was no one in the reception when we arrived, so we had to physically call them on the phone to make them welcome us in the reception. Secondly there was an extra bed in the... More

This is a really impressive hotel. From the moment you book in you whole ambiance is very relaxed. We stayed in the main hotel, and were glad that we did. The room was spacious with a balcony with great views of the mountains and ski runs on the opposite side of the fjord. The bed was comfortable and we had... More

Having recently stayed at the Vestlia Resort I can hand on heart not fault our stay! From the second we arrived at the train station we were greeted with a shuttle to the accommodation and transferred to the resort (a short 5 minute journey) we were greeted at reception by a gentleman named Thor who throughout our stay proved a...

We wanted a relaxing week away with a spa hotel and found the Vestlia resort which just happened to be a few yards from the main ski lift. Perfect. We went for the first week in January 2015. We booked half board as we weren't bothered about exploring the town. We just wanted to be lazy. Ski and be fed... More

We spent New Year once again at Vestlia! We enjoyed it so much last year that we did it again this year. The hotel has almost doubled in size from last year and we were put into one of the new rooms. We had 2 double bedrooms with a lounge/kitchen in the middle. Although it wasn't quite finished we had... More

My family and I travelled with Crystal ski over the Christmas week and I have to say, the Vestlia resort is a wonderful place to spend a family Christmas. As previous reviews have stated, it really is a winter wonderland where snow is pretty much guaranteed. The hotel has recently had a substantial extension with contemporary and stylish rooms, spa,...

We booked this holiday/hotel through Crystal Ski. The hotel is lovely although I found it really dark inside. Not sure if that's the Norwegian style but it could be quite difficult to see what you were eating at times and slightly too dark in the mornings, especially when you needed to wake up. We thought our room was smaller than... More

Lovely hotel in beautiful setting. We were there for Christmas and the hotel really made an effort for the kids. Food was delicious although we had no real choice as to what we had. Our room was literally brand new having been completed the week before. Our only complaints were: 1. We had a fully fitted kitchen but absolutely no... More
