We were on our way from Oslo to Gudvangen for a Fjord Cruise and thus spent a night in Geilo at this hotel. This is a popular ski resort but are quiet in Mid July. Quite an old hotel which is shown from the room, bathroom, lounge, restaurant, etc. I would say, however, that it is a classic rather than... More

A grand older hotel, good sized rooms, although the ensuites are small. Nice views from our upper floor room, opening windows, comfortable bed. A five minute walk to the small shopping area. Courteous helpful staff. We could hear our neigbours in their bed rooms on both sides which was annoying - very thin walls with no sound proofing. Usual buffet... More

It is quite old hotel but still keep good standard. The hotel is kept very clean, whole staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are are nice and comfortable. Unfortunately there are some minuses - no minibar and tea/coffee in the room. The isolation of rooms is poor so if you have a noisy neighborhood you have a bad... More

This is one of those older, ultra comfortable hotels. Lounges to pick and choose, one overlooking the beautiful views of Geilo, a dance floor and piano music after dinner, a beautiful library and a massive dining area. There is a spa available to guests, with a Jacuzzi outside and inside, 2 indoor pools, sauna and spaces to relax outside or... More

We arrived by train, breaking the trip between Oslo and Bergen. Reception was very friendly but when my husband tried to change the room to a double, he was told all the rooms are twins and the beds would be pushed together while we had dinner. Dinner was OK but expensive for a gristley steak. When we arrived back to... More

Stayed here for only one night, but it was problematic. We arrived at the train station with our bags. We had been told that someone would be there to meet us and take us to the hotel, but there was no one there. We waited around until everyone had left, and then didn't know what to do and went to...

Just finished a week snowboarding in Geilo; we were based at the Dr. Holms hotel. It's a little old and could do with a lick of paint but make no mistake it's a first rate hotel. Fantastic setting, beautiful building and the staff are extremely friendly. It's not quite ski-in, ski-out (as it claimed) but the reality is that the... More
