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...

Asa family we are big fans of the hotel and the resort, this trip must be about number 15. The hotel has a style of its' own, our rooms were very comfortable and the food was excellent. While we were there this time there was a big conference on which worked to our advantage, the pool, spa and gym facilities... More

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

We stayed at Dr Holms for a week. No pension (exc breakfast), which is important as i'll explain. First: The Hotel. An amazing piece of art, if you like mountain hotels. You'll find everything you like: fire places, a fantastic library, long corridors. I've been told by a tourist there is ghost stories about this Hotel, and it easy to... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Dr Holms. There were a few gripes but generally I had a decent stay. Let’s get the gripes out of the way. I think this is a British condition but when in Norway it is frustrating that outside of large cities there never seems to be tea making facilities in the room. After a... More

Just returned from Geilo from a week skiing. One of the few Brits in resort amongst many Danish! Staff at the hotel helpful, friendly and went out their way to make you feel welcome. Short walk to the ski centre, please I didn't have to use the ski bus round resort. Great holiday - just need to book again for... More

I have been back to Dr Holms, an improvement from last summer. Rooms are mediocre without any defined style. Need for style renovation. On the positive side is a good breakfast, nice reception staff - and a very good three course dinner menu which is very good value at nok 2oo extra in the room price. The best hotel at... More

We visited Dr. Holms for a wedding anniversary. We did not sleep at the hotel, but enjoyed the facilities for a day. Dr. Holms is known for being one of the more classy and better hotels in Geilo, maybe even in Hallingdal, so the expectations towards the evening was very high. We started off in the pool. The pool area... More

Stayed here on a road trip through Norway with our Norwegian friends. Enjoyed the stay and particular the dinner. Food was VERY good and the decor and ambiance were great. Looking through the old photo album in the lobby was VERY neat. Very quiet place and neat feeling.
