very well located hotel as stop during a roundtrip in Norway. The rooms are spacious and well furbished in a cosy style. There is plenty of room. The restaurant serves a wonderful breakfast with lots of (too many) choices. Also the restaurant serves excellent food of outstanding quality. If you want to make a stop whilst touring around in Norway,... More

it is difficult to know how best to review this hotel. Some things were excellent for example we were met off the train, the staff are very helpful and the spa is pretty good (please though put a couple of extra degrees into the water!) but there is so much to change. The food - and with my family I... More

Dr Holms is a resort hotel almost 100 years old, which went through several upgrades over the decades. Despite the effort, we could feel that the rooms were aged and tired. There were some faulty parts here and there. For example, 2 other rooms had problem with the shower head and the drainage respectively. The rooms were somewhat disappointing. But... More

Dr Holms did surprise me with its smooth luxury and friendly staff. The interior is truly fantastic and very well maintained. We enjoyed ourselves in the well decorated room with fantastic beds. Everything is just perfect at this hotel - I was really satisfied. The hotel also houses the "after ski" in the afternoon. At night the party moves to... More

We stayed at Dr. Holms 15 years ago and the rooms have not been renovated since. The brand is luxury but the state of the hotel and the service is NOT! There was no hot water in the showers one afternoon, the sauna in the spa was out of order, the pool area was freezing, not to mention the rooms... More

We have stayed at the Dr Holms for skiing over the last 20 years and once again had a very enjoyable time, the rooms are very comfortable and the hotel has good facilities. The staff as always were very friendly and helpful but seemed stretched on occasions through lack of numbers and the food standards had slipped.

Well, it is impressive, really. Because you can't compare this to any of Geilo's other hotels. It's massive, unique, traditional and just majestic in many ways. But 5 stars, not quite. Because even though it's the best option in Geilo, without a doubt, it's still not a 5'er, mainly because of missing some of the essentials that a 5 star... More

We were arranged to stay here unexpectedly, because there were no hotels available in Flam during the Christmas period. It could be their tradition, the hotel setup is kinda old school, room and furniture look dated as well, however the friendliness of their staffs offset it.

Only stayed there one night on our way to Bergen via the Flam. I would describe her as an elegant old lady that has seen better days and could do with a facelift!
