Overpriced. Buffet not great.

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 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 disgusting, cold cuts straight from their vacuum packs, compressed... More

I was there for the winter holiday at this great location. The staff is friendly, although the hotel itself is very 70's and need upgrading as others have pointed out.

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. The food was very good, with a great selection. Basically, they might have gotten an Excellent if not for one problem. As I went to get juice,... More

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.
