Travelers' Choice
Dalen Hotel is a fairytale hotel, build in 1894 in grand romantic style with dragonheads, towers and balconys. The paper "Varden" wrote in 1894: "The new elegant furnished Hotel at Dalen, at the top of the Bandak waters, is now ready to recieve guests".After early golden days and later years of decay the hotel was in 1994, after years of restauration finished to welcome its guests again, all restored back to its original beauty. It has the same soul, calmness, peace and atmosphere as the wooden castle that opened for more than 125 years ago.

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!
