The hotel is situated up the hill overlooking Lillehammer and below the impressive ski-jump. It provides a good base for exploring the town, although the walk back up the hill to the hotel may not be for everyone, but taxis are easy to find in the town centre. With a pleasing façade and lit up with lantern lights at night it sits well in the snowy landscape.
As a large hotel with a significant corporate/large group clientele the room although spacious and clean with a comfortable bed, was definitely not up to the quality of other Radisson hotels. Towels and pillows were definitely rationed, though there was a hospitality tray and kettle in the room, which not all Norwegian hotels provide.
Breakfast was a generous buffet with a large selection of different options including cooked dishes and hot drinks available from drinks machines. Rather than individual seating everyone sat at long communal tables in the large somewhat gloomy dining room, which was rather like eating in a refectory at college again.
Although the room was not quite up to the usual Radisson standard the price was still around £100 per night, but by Norwegian standards that's not bad for a decent hotel in a good location with breakfast included.
