“Very good for conferences or business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

I stayed there for two days recently and was very happy with the hotel and the facilities.

All the rooms are refurbished, they have modern decor, are spacious and nicely decorated. The bed is very comfortable.

The meeting facilities were also good, big rooms, nice area for breaks and soft ice breaks every day between 2 and 3 o'clock.

The meals were good, except for a mango sorbet that sadly tasted like fish oil!! (I guess there was a mishap in the kitchen,) the breakfast was great and it had it's own omelette station, very nice :)

The only thing that was disappointing was that the pool was closed during our stay because of maintentance. All in all a good choice for business 25 minutes from Oslo.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

We went there for a team-building event.

A lot of activities to choose between, we played som croquet and had a wine and tapas tasting/cooking course at night which was very good!

The conference rooms were badly ventilated, and the barman at night was a bit bored, but apart from thath, very nice rooms, good food, and a very good breakfast.

Would recommend this for corporate outings!

Stayed two nights during a conferance. Arrived by taxi from Asker trainstation - about 10 minutes by cab, around 150 NOK (25 USD). Arrived early in the morning, but the hotel could not provide me with a room at the time of arrival. +: nice pool, staff friendly . -: Horrible rooms. Smelly, and not very clean. Had to change room once because of fungilike smell, but the room I was provided the 2. time wasn't better. It looked like nothing has been done for 20-30 years when it comes to maintenence. Noisy because of a lot of construction activities going on in the hotels. Food: Ok, but nothing special, chairs in the dining area were all abaout to fall apart.
Total: Far away from Oslo and the little town of Asker. Stay away unless you have to stay there.

  • Liked — Not much, ok pool.
  • Disliked — Smelly and old hotel rooms.

This is certainly a long time ago, and I ca assure you and other readers that the source of this bad smell has been located and removed. This was done 2 years ago, and it concerned 4 rooms only. Since then we have added 46 new rooms and no more smell :)
