Etween east and west, on the edge of a mountain shelf 1000 meters above sea level, you will find Skarsnuten Hotel. Majestically placed with a spectacular view over Hemsedal and the mountains. The hotel has a modern Scandinavian design, with a pure expression and extensive use of natural materials. With us, good food and drink is an important part of the experience. The restaurant serves food and wine in harmony with friendliness and warmth. The nature surrounding the hotel invites to numerous experiences, summertime and wintertime. The ski center is our closest neighbor and our guests appreciates the fresh air and out door activities, both private visitors and guests belonging to a group or conference. The balance between modern architecture and good old fashion hospitality makes it easy to enjoy life at Skarsnuten..

The hotel is beautiful! It is located in a wonderful area just close to the ski slope. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The breakfast is fantastic. The only negative point is the very expensive restaurant with bad service although the food was very good.

The food it self is avrage and I would say it was better last season (january 2014). The restaurant have a goody bag for... More

Small but welcoming. We had lunch here on our last day. We shared a pizza and a beef pasta dish. Both were delicious, especially the pasta. Service with a smile and the Swedish waiter stopped to talk to us for a while. Very friendly and great with the kids. Toilets beautifully clean. We used the sauna shower facilities before we...

The food at lunchtime was very good. We had the smoked trout salad a few times and it was superb. The setting is nice and laid back with a great view of the valley.

Norways "Alps" are a sad story when it comes to food. Its a mystery that its not possible to have any consistency in quality and service. You are better of bringing your own Mars bar and have it whist sitting in the lift and make your own food after skiing. If you like rubber burgers that takes 1,5 hours from... More
