I stayed in this hotel in wintertime, when it was snowy and cold outside. The inside of the hotel was warm and cosy. The food was good, and the breakfast buffee was tasty with a good variety of different things to eat. My room was not not particularly large, but the temperature in my room was perfect, and I slept... More

We choose this hotel because of location. And I’m glad we did make a right decision. Transport is no problem as the bus drops you off right in front of the hotel and to continue the journey you can take the bus from same place. The location is fabulous just besides the lake and mountains. The setting of the town... More

This hotel has two parts, one old and one new, the old part is beautiful and traditional Norwegian, the new one is very sterile and typical modern hotel, the staff is very nice and polite but the real highlight is the dining area, rustic highend cabin feel, makes you feel like you are in 1875.

A nice old hotel that have added a new section with modern rooms. Free wi-fi and good breakfast. Don't like the fact that they don't have a fitness room. Parking is also free, parts of it under roof. During nice weather you can have a good walk in the area and get to know this cosy small town. A visit... More

We didn't stay here overnight but we went for dinner here one evening. The service the day we went here was quite bad. It was one trainee and one full employee so everything was slow. We had to wait very long for our drinks and the bread. The food though was absolutely delicious. My girlfriend had the lamb and I... More

We stayed for one day after a ferry sightseeing of the fjord. We had a business apartment on the water, with magnificent view to the fjord. Breakfast was rich and generous and we also had exquisite dinner of stylish Nordic cuisine all based on local produce. The staff is welcoming and professional, I would highly recommend staying in this hotel... More

Stayed one week at this hotel in early August 2014 together with my wife and two teen age kids. We had a three bedroom apartment with balcony facing the beautiful fjord and also the glacier. Two of the rooms had nowhere to hang cloths and one room had no window covering. After talking to the front desk portable clothing racks... More
