High class Hotel with great service, excellent food and environment to blow you away! This walley has also a benefit of nice trips nearby…. Just ask the staff for advice…. This is a trip like #needtodoinyourlife
We had a wonderful stay in this classic hotel with great hospitality. Unique location and great views. Superb restaurant. Minor points are the relatively small rooms. And we recommend not to book room 1 (which we had) as this room is located next to the kitchen with lots of noise out of the kitchen in the evening and night.
Amazing Place. A lovely historical hotel with awesome facilities, sorrounded by beautiful nature with different exploration walk options. 5 ⭐ room, service, food & wine selection. Kind, attentive and service minded personnel. The whole concept really transported us to the older times. This was a totally different dimension to any previous experience in Norwegian Hotels . Really recommended 🥰
The hotel itself is a masterpiece late 19th Century Dragon-styie archi techure that lives up to its Five stars in every respect, in rooms, decoratios, furnishing, food. But what makes it special is the service-mindedness and friendliness of its staff. Being a masterpiece of restoration and heritagf preservation there are no lefts. But that does not matter as the receptionist carrier your luggage to your room. My I only complaint is the dining room. It literally requires you to dress for dinner. And I did not pack my dinner jacket.
Arrived Dalen Hotel early in the evening after a long drive that day. Perfect location of the hotel, the garden and surroundings are perfect with the English garden on the back. The staff is friendly and wish you welcome, the hotel is built in 1894 and they try to keep the atmosphere like that. In the evening at 10pm they tell a story about the history of the hotel and how this hotel where a modern hotel back then. The food in the restaurant where perfect, and so the breakfast in the morning. The rooms can be a bit small (standard double room), but you have the option to select a bigger one. We where there together with 3 other couples last weekend. Can be recommended, but bring a credit card with you as the prices are on the higher end..
Being lovers of historic hotels, we had great expectations for Dalen. And they were all exceeded. What a totally wonderful hotel the owners have been able to create. Historically correct, very charming, high quality in every detail and a warm and helpful staff. With the wonderful sauna down by the Bandak lake, we are definetly coming back.
This is a hotel that is run by people who care about the hotel, its history, and the experience that guests have. We stayed for one night and our stay was a delight from start to finish. The hotel is exquisitely restored - a step into the past, though not at the expense of comfort. A proper hotel with the little extras that are missing from most modern hotels. We stayed in a deluxe room with balcony. The room was charming and the bed comfortable. Dinner, made by the michelin star chef was amazing, served by attentive staff. At 10 o'clock the guests gathered in the charming old lounge for to hear the hotels manager tell the story of the hotel. It is an entertaining and eventful history. After a leisurely breakfast and a walk up to Rui (amazing views over the valley!), we rounded off our trip with afternoon teas - lovely sandwiches, cakes and fresh scones. The staff were friendly, helpful and available, throughout our stay. We left the charming Dalen Hotel feeling uplifted and hoping to visit again.…
2 nights at Dale Hotel is memorable. The food is delicious, the staff is fantastic and the scenery is something you will remember for life. Take the opportunity to walk up to the Rui farm and further to Eidsborg. We will definitely be back. Thank you!
We stopped by here on a whim. Great and friendly staff. Cute historic hotel (1894). The main lounge rooms have been kept as they were since 1894. Perfect for sipping a cocktail. Our Room was clean. We splurged and had the 3 course dinner. The food and service was excellent. A little pricy but how often do you get to dine in a historic dinning room. Also enjoyed the champagne breakfast.
The hotel is very authentic, and the athmosphere is unbeilvable. Beautiful rooms!! Norway's Downton Abby?? It is well worth a visit, beautiful nature and many trail If you feel like a swin or sauna, you can go down to Telemarkskanalen a few hundred meters from he hotel. The food is great and the staff friendly!
