I had the absolute pleasure of staying at this hotel in September this year. The Hotel itself is not extrodinary in any way, free WiFi, Dining, a Bar, Rooms may need an update, but they are clean and serviceable, but wanted to say that I was thoroughly impressed with the people.
I arrived very late, and the check in staff was very pleasant. I had a problem with the room, the TV did not work, and the WiFi signal wasn't sufficient to connect. (I was notified that these issues have subsequently addressed.)
Andre was very helpful, and moved me to another room, where he verified both the TV and the WiFi were working well.
He was also very accommodating when, due to jet lag, I couldn't sleep, taking time from his duties at 3am and making me a pot of coffee, and taking time he could have been working to visit with me and keep me company. He is a very great example of hospitality with a smile!
The entire staff were some of the most gracious hotel employees I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Always smiling and helpful, even going so far as to help me read the menu in the dining room. Even though they had a huge group in for a business meeting, they didn't make me feel like a nuisance and although it was just two ladies working, the service was excellent.
Other members of the staff were very pleasant, even helping me to find a quiet place to get dinner in Amot when I wanted to get out one evening, and didn't get frustrated when I couldn't program my GPS with the address, they just smiled anddrew me a map, and followed up later to make sure I found it ok.
My company travels occasionally to Kongsberg for our business, and although the distance between Vikersund and Kongsberg is a draw back, the limited hotel space in Kongsberg means occasionally we will have to stay other places.
When I cant stay in Kongsberg I will gladly come back to visit this fine facility and its amazing staff, and tell others who may be in the same situation the same thing! (by this review!)
The 45 minute drive to Kongsberg is very beautiful, and the traffic isn't bad, the your facility is a great alternative when needed.
The facility is very neat and clean, but what really makes the location is the staff!!
I travel extensively, and have stayed many places, and this facility is among the best, and that is because of the people.
I would like to say I very much enjoyed visiting the Tyri-Fjord Hotel in Vikersund, and would do so again gladly!!
