Our issues are all first world problems: beds were small and very uncomfortable (we had booked two queens and got two doubles -- though staff graciously let us look at other rooms and switch), staff at the hotel told us cross country trails were open and when we went to the ski rental hut we learned that they weren't open...

Great place for an event. Good food, staff helpful and a beautiful location. Rooms are comfortable and clean but a little dated. Meeting room is huge and easily was set up for our separate training. Good service was very good and was appreciated by our group

We enjoyed staying in Granlibakken very much. The rooms are spacious and clean, our room even had a fireplace which I absolutely loved. The staff is very friendly. Mirian from the front desk was very helpful and she even prepared a nice surprise for us in the room when we came back in the evening. We would definitely stay there... More

We stayed here June 20 - 22, 2014. The not so good; I honestly have to say this was the smallest room we have ever stayed in. (It was even smaller than a cruise ship state room!) The bed was uncomfortably hard. The blinds and curtains were inadequate, unless you like waking up at dawn. After the first evening, my... More

Great location and very helpful staff. The included breakfast buffet is wonderful. Rooms are in condominiums so most have kitchens. Granlibakken is great for conferences up to 300 or more in attendance.

We were married at Granlibakken on September 28th.

Granlibakken staff are wonderful to work with. Accommodations are extremely clean, comfortable and private. A great location for a family gathering or company event. There are many outdoor activities right out the back door!

As an Event Coordinator, working with the GLB staff was a joy and positive experience. The entire hotel staff was accommodating in my requests for our conference. We were accommodated with boxed lunches for late arrivals, prior to the beginning of the conference, as well as one day of our conference so attendees could enjoy the GLB grounds and nature....

The staff, the venue, the rooms, the location, the food, the bar - all were top notch! We had a corporate retreat at this facility and the staff was so welcoming, the dinners and breakfasts were delicious, and there were so many things to do. From swimming, to hiking, biking, tennis, and even a ropes course!
