After staying at two old hotels during my trip to Scandinavia, my expectations were quite low for this one. I was pleasantly surprised and truthfully, I would have given Dr. Holms Hotel 3 1/2 stars. My single room (Rm 230) was quite small and did not have much of a view, but the room had high ceilings so it gave... More

Arrived hungry picking up a sandwich from the bistro on my way up to my room. Wanted to use the bathroom first. Floor was soaking wet from the last person who'd showered there. I openened the lid to the toilet and...reversed into the room to call reception. Someone definitely had forgotten to clean the bathroom. No apology, only that I... More

We were booked in here for one night to break our railway journey from Oslo to Bergen. The hotel was built at the beginning of last century and retains many original features. The receptionist was extremely welcoming and very helpful. The room was ageing but perfectly comfortable with an impressive view over the mountains. The hotel swimming pool (indoors and... More

We stayed one night on our way back to Oslo from visiting the fjords. It is an older hotel that is under renovation currently but this didn't interfere with our appreciation of the history or ambiance of the place. Dinner and breakfast buffets were good, although the hot food was barely warm. Rooms were older but although the bathroom was... More

Having follow a group of travellers , this hote wasn't my choice so I have had to take it. First but not least worst experience was a cold shower. Bathroom was quite dirty with some hair stuck on the tiles, soap was running out and the room was cold with the external temperature nine degrees. Later,while my wife tried to... More

Stayed for one night. Helpful staff, plus for early check-in. Classy, traditional hotel with modern facilities. Both dinner and breakfast buffé had wide variations with extra gluten-free and lactose-free alternatives. Make sure to enjoy the jacuzzi outside while you are there, it has a beautiful view over Geilo! The pools inside are also worth a visit. Short walk to the... More

Stopped at this hotel on our tour through Scandanavia. Older hotel, nicely kept up, but does show it's age. Enjoyed the pool and spa, closely located to smaller shopping area in ski resort town. Service was good, food was decent.

Such a pretty location! Yes the hotel is older style but it feels very comfortable and seems to suit the location. Not sure what it might be like in winter as our stay in June was very pleasant as we could even open our window to take in the fresh mountain air. We had a buffet dinner in the restaurant... More

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
