"Food"

We were stupid enough, again, to have dinner at this hotel. We made our decision based on the fact that they were doing the buffet dinner, instead of the three-course dinners we have decided to avoid like the plague based on earlier experience. Earlier buffets have been OK. This buffet was... read more

The buffet is expensive, and really not worth the money. We had a late booking, and many dishes were already picked over. It's OK, but there are few alternatives without driving to Rjukan.

We decided to reserve breakfast here as it was the most convenient for our morning plans, and the price was reasonable. The dining room is nice, and our server was pleasant and attentive.

We had the buffet lunch at the hotel that was nothing special, but not bad. They charged nok 355,- per person (excluding drinks) ....... The hotel is desperate for a major upgrade.

Very good buffet, great view. A bit too much of a hotel-restaurant.
