Visited with friends. The hotel is city centre and really convenient for the station. The hotel is modern and the check in was fine. However, the rooms are a tad spartan in terms of furnishings and servicing was a touch idiosyncratic. Of our three rooms we managed one kettle. We seemed to either get bath mats for the shower or face towels but not seemingly both at there same time. Making the beds was erratic and brushing or hoovering was noticeable by its absence. Check out was more fun. The town was busy and the hotel was busy so the hotel seemed to want to charge walk in rates rather than that quoted when booked two months before, i.e. double! Thanks to the intervention of our local resident friend the was rectified, but disappointing! So, the moral is stay by all means but with care.

I got a room with a nice view of the lake. Spacious room, wooden floor, comfortable bed. Friendly reception staff. The breakfast room was very crowded. Splendid location, close to the railway station.

We stayed here for one night. Clean, cozy and warm room. Tea and sugar provided which was a big plus since it was a very cold day. Super comfortable beds! Good selection of breakfast. Breakfast is served until 10:30 which is awesome for people like me. It was a bit pricey, but all hotels in Norway are pricey.

Stay only one night in the hotel, the room is quite small but ok. Once we enter the hotel, small lobby with souvenir shop on the right. But unfortunately, cannot get tax refund for the receipt. I managed to get one backpack though. Had early breakfast with a very delicious Pate.. :)
