Stayed 1-one night last weekend and would definately return if going to this area of Norway. Excellent service, perfect setting, a tad to expensive, but still worth the visit. Rooms are cosy, but I would have preferred a bit harder beds. God food and overall absolutely worth it.

Last June we stayed 4 nights in Nordre Ekre. Last year we couldn't fully enjoy our stay so we decided to come back this year and it was the best decision we could have made. Nice room (we had the pink one), nice environment (we did some great hikes!), nice weather (true, that was perhaps also luck) and on top... More

My friend and I stayed in this historic place for two nights. It is everything you expect of a family owned hotel in the green Norwegian hills. Warm rooms, good bathroom facilities ( we had a junior suite) very comfortable bed all furnished with traditional furniture. The 4 course set evening meal was to die for both nights.

Rather than stay in a more traditional hotel or b&b this family run boutique hotel is a must if you are in the area. The old buildings have been sensitively converted to a modern level of comfort without loosing the feel of the original spaces. The common library - a coffee/tea lounge room- is a great way to meet fellow... More

We stayed at this amazing place a couple of times. Nr.1 place to stay if you are visiting beautiful Gudbrandsdalen. The traditional buildings makes the stay spectacular together with the sound of the mighty river. The staff is very kind, helpful and friendly. Excellent breakfast, and gourmet cuisine in the evenings. We will be back, and I recommend this to... More

My party of three occupied three rooms for one night in spacious converted log-cabin farm buildings. The conversions were done to a high standard, and the rooms were comfortable, although my room was short of natural light (just one small window, too high to see through). The lack of windows is a shame as the location is in an attractive... More

We spent two nights here and came away wishing we could have spent a week. We're hikers and this is a perfect base--Besseggen was about a 45 minute drive (no boat yet and still a bit of snow but we made the summit!), or you can just start from the inn. The setting is spectacular, just up from the river... More

We stayed here three nights in August. Owners and staff were fabulous. They were cordial, provided gourmet meals, and even helped us navigate the area and find help in locating the farm where our ancestors grew up before coming to US in late 1880s. They made the trip a memorable one. Thanks to them all. This is a very special... More

We stayed at Nordre Ekra for five nights recently. The room and the location was fantastic, so peaceful and relaxing. The historical aspect also added to the whole wonderful experience. The fact that our dog was also welcomed was a bonus! On the last night we decided to have dinner in the restaurant. I can honestly say that this is... More

I was initially thinking I would review the location and accommodations...that was, until I had dinner. We decided to book our evening meal here given the other reviews on Trip Advisor and the sparsity of choices nearby. Forget choices!! In our 10-day trip across Norway, this meal was hands down the best. We could have been in Paris, New York... More
