The cabins were advertised as 10-berth but the upstairs is ridiculously cramped and photos don't show how low the ceilings are, at most 5'6" and above the bed there is about 1' head room. Incredibly uncomfortable to move around with repeated head injuries - they are completely unfit for purpose. It's a shame because the downstairs is pleasant with a new kitchen and pleasant living space. Poor storage in the downstairs bedrooms (none at all upstairs - where would all the suitcases go?). Firewood is extra but essential on cold days. No soap in the bathrooms seems a bit mean! Extra charges for the swimming pool and gym - huh? The cabins are on the hotel site so should benefit from hotel facilities. No evening buffets during the 6 days we were there which used to be a highlight especially the amazing Friday seafood buffet which seems to have stopped. The food is very high quality, very well cooked and beautifully presented but tended to arrive cool and was a bit too salty. …
We stayed a night in one of the small Cabins (Torely) annexed to the hotel. Inside it was charming, with a wood stove in the corner. The staff had kindly put a bottle of sparkling wine out for us as we were staying for a special occasion. The inside is a little dated, but perfectly functional. The kitchen was enough for us to cook a meal and make coffee. There's WiFi (no more than 2mb and patchy) and a TV (not a smart one). The main criticism is the bed; two small rickety beds pushed together that cannot be considered comfortable, and pancake-flat pillows. The thin curtains that didn't completely cover the windows also hindered a good night's sleep given we were staying in July and it stays light nearly all night. I imagine that isn't an issue in winter. Our only interactions with the staff were at check in and check out but at both times they were very friendly and helpful. …
Bardøla - the fairytale that disappeared Since 1998 I have visited this wonderful hotel at regular intervals. The food has been fantastic and the staff welcoming and cheerful. Christmas has been magical for young and old. I have met people from USA, who have traveled errands to celebrate the holiday there, because the place has created a unique atmosphere. Now, unfortunately, it's over. The hotel has been rebuilt and the staff group is new. The cafe is now part of the reception and the food is average ok. Gone is the warmth and genuine romantic hotel. After more than 20 years, we now have to find a new place to gather the extended family and business associates.
Top location with a short way to the center with shopping, cafes, train station and an incredible selection of ski slopes and trails. The hotel has a wonderful atmosphere and the hotel staff are friendly and service minded.
Family ski holiday, 2 adults and 2 young adults. 2 rooms for a week. The hotel is very welcoming and full of history. Large lobby and lounges. Interesting art and antiques all around the hotel. The bedrooms (at least the ones we had) were quite small. The beds were fine but felt somewhat soft and small for some of our party. Rooms otherwise comfortable and clean. The food was great. One in our party is vegan, and they went out of their way to accommodate him. Most evenings they serve a huge buffet for dinner but our vegan had lovely food made just for him. Two evenings a week they have a la carte, but again they were flexible if something was not to everyone’s taste. Breakfast was the same grand affair, more food and variety than we knew what to do with. The hotel has a nice pool and sauna, children’s play area and table tennis. In the summer they have outdoor tennis courts. There is a shuttle bus taking people to the ski lifts in the morning and afternoon. It’s not even 5 minutes to the nearest lift. Once on the lift one can get to all other lifts and pistes on that side of the valley. We stayed there pretty much all week as this is the sunny side. There is a shuttle every ten minutes taking people back and forth to the other side for skiing if desired. We skied back to the hotel at the end of the day. A track takes one down to the side of the hotel and near the ski room. It wasn’t entirely clear where to go so we got a bit muddled on the first day but it was easy as anything once we sussed it. Sofie’s cafe, bar and small deli is attached to the hotel and can be accessed either from the lobby or outside. They have great food if one wants something to eat outside the hotel’s mealtimes, and also great coffee. The staff was genuinely super nice all around, but we must mention our friendly Portuguese waiter Gill in the restaurant. Service with a smile and a skip in his step and and funny &friendly banter 😊…
The hotel feels very authentic and not part of a big chain. The facilities for children are great. There’s a play area with soft play, air hockey, table football and table tennis. It’s right by the restaurant so kids can play before or after dinner. The pool is a good size and lovely and warm after a days skiing. We stayed over New Year so they had a good entertainment planned for the kids. All of the staff were very friendly and keen to help. Disliked · The hotel decor is a bit tired.
We went to Bardøla for the 4th time and had yet another great stay. The staff is friendly and the food is good. This time vi celebrated New Years eve and as before it was a great party. Thank you so much.
I really like this hotel. It’s easy to get there with the train. Staff was very friendly and smiled alot. I mean every staff: driver, receptionist, server/bar and cleaners. Food tasted wonderful . Rooms are large and modern. I didn’t want to go home.
We stayed for three days with kids and the staff was outstanding. All service from booking, reception, kitchen, cleaning and service staff exceeded all my expectations! Great food as well, they provided me with very tasty special food. I am so satisfied with the stay and will come back, for sure!
We stayed for a night in room 106 on Sept 12. The resort was quite nice and comfortable. Like most hotels in Scandinavia, this hotel didn't provide any electric kettle and guests must take hot water from the restaurant behind the reception - quite inconvenient when you needed a hot coffee or tea. We were told that we could drink cold water straight from the tap - something we Asians found it hard to accept - anyway the tap water was crystal clear without any chlorine smell. We took the dinner & breakfast buffet at the ground floor restaurant which had quite a good spread of food to suit all kinds of travellers. Although the dining tables & seats were sufficient for 100+ people, the food display area was small and could be crowded during "rush hours".
