I participated on a conference, and are partly satisfied with this hotel. Rooms are small, and dark interior makes it appear even smaller. We told staff that the floors were not well enough cleaned when we arrived, something they fixed right away. The bedsheets had a stain, got a new one the next day. Later we complained on the water...

The people at this hotel are very nice. We were there in summer but it is very ski lodge like. Dark and with the possibility of open fires etc. We stayed twice, on the way to and from Bergan and both rooms were very clean. The pool is very nice and we both enjoyed a massage which was also good.... More

Travelling in a family and booked two superior rooms, hoping to give comfortable rooms to family members. These are the worst rooms I have seen in my Norway trip, though the price is almost the highest. I was told all superior rooms are located in the building and since there are construction works outside the new building, superior rooms are... More

Summary: Great hotel, excellent location, outstanding staff, high quality food, stayed twice, will stay again. This was our second stay at the Vestlia Resort in 2 years. A perfect location, a literal stone's throw from the ski rental, school and lifts and walkable into Geilo town centre. We stayed in a standard double with sofa bed for our 12 year... More

We stayed her for a week over February half term last year (February 2013) it was our first ski trip with our children (then 5 and 9). The hotel couldn't have been closer to the slopes which was a bounds when ski school started early!! I would describe the Vestlia's style as cosy, hunting lodge chic! The public areas are... More

Love the location - right next to Geilolia Ski Centre. Love the size, neither impersonally big nor boringly small. Love our room - large with comfy sofa bed in living room and double bedroom. Love the decor - cosy/modern and surreptitiously chic. The food. AMAZING!!!!! The staff - the friendliest I have ever had on any holiday, anywhere. The kids... More

I have read some reviews of this hotel that were so far from the experience I enjoyed that I had to review my last stay. If you want a wonderfully situated hotel with stunning views of one of the most unutterably beautiful places in Scandinavia you should definitely stay here. Some reviews are less than complimentary concerning the staff, who... More

We stayed at Vestlia Resort only one night , in Summer, on the way to the Fiordj . It was okey , the only problem was that our room was downstairs and there was no lift for our luggages.The breakfast and dinner we had at the Hotel, were very good. I was thinking if we went in Winter for ski,... More

...to the lovely Vestlia. We stayed here 7 years ago when the new spa wing had just been opened and things haven't really changed. The staff in the main are hugely charming and happy to help with absolutely anything. The hotel looks good (dark woods, candles everywhere) although there are the odd signs of wear and tear in communal areas.... More
