This hotel is located near the motorway E6, a bit north of Hamar. Perfect when travelling by car. Nice room, soft and comfortable bed, a bit narrow but. Clean room. Great breakfast! Friendly staff. Free WiFi. Sauna. Tasty food in the restaurant. Free parking outside. Short distance to shopping center.

This hotel is OK. The breakfast is good and the swimming pool is OK. But there is no ventilation/AC in this hotel. The only way to get some fresh air into the room is to open the window. Then you hear the highway and can smell the nearby fast food restaurant. So we had some warm and not so pleasant... More

We stayed here 1 night and it was ok. We had a renovated room on the backside of the hotel and you should definitely ask for this. The room was nice, although the 2 beds were a bit small. The swimming pool was nice, just a bit cold. Breakfast was perfect, with everything you need and more! Disadvantage was running... More

That is all except the male manager, who was and surly, sour faced man, with absolutely no manners, personality or customer service no how at all. My wife and 3 daughters and I stopped at this hotel in August which, as we now... More

The hotel rooms were modern and airy but a bit small, actually the beds were narrower than normal. The breakfast buffet was excellent. There was an outdoor swimming pool and also free tea and coffee downstairs if you knew where to go. Unfortunately it was not near the down centre .

The staff was very friendly and welcoming. They helped my family locate key points of interest in the area. They also provided materials to fix an ailing suitcase. Rooms were clean and comfortable, spacious and modern. Breakfast was amazing: a true smorgasbord. Conveniently located off the highway and a welcome respite from the road.
