Dette er det værste hotellet vi har opplevd. Her skulle vi få oppleve ett nytt feiring for nytt år av hele familien, fredag til Søndag!. Vi var 10 stykker. Barna er fra 4 til 15 år. Våre forventninger av hotellet skulle være greit, inntil vi kom frem. De skriver på anonsen at de har slalombakke rettutenfor, og ja det har de, men som ikke er i drift pågrunn av det blir for dyrt å produsere snø som de sa. Og dette har vi gledet oss til. Bastu var heller ikke i drift. Vi hadde 4 retters mat som smakte veldig godt på kvelden før nyttår. Vi gikk ned i kjelleren etter maten, her var det dansegulv og musikk. og det var bare oss i familien som var der nede og ingen andre. Det lignet mer på en veldig stor stue med masse sofaer. Siden det var bare vi der nede, spurte vi om å få bytte musikk, siden de spilte bare gammeldags musikk som barna ikke likte. Det gjorde dem ikke. En gammel mann som jobbet der gikk opp frem og tilbake. Ungene kjedet seg. Det var verken ikke noe spill eller lek for ungene. Barna så at det var pingpong der. Når ballen sprettet ved døra, tokk den gamle mannen ballen og ristet på hode. Vi spurte om vi kan låne for å spille. Nei sa han. Da satt ungene igjen på sofaen og kjedet seg. Etter hvert kom sønnen min ned og tokk med en del brus så at vi kunne drikke litt der. Den gamle mannen tokk alle brusene på bordet. Jeg gikk bort til han og spurte hvorfor han gjorde det. Det jeg fikk svar fra han at jeg var rett og slett frekk. Jeg forsto ikke helt hva han mente og spurte han. Han sa at vi er på en hotell og hvorfor skulle vi ta med noe drikke ned. Han sa til meg også om har jeg aldri vært på en hotell før. Da ba jeg han få tilbake brusene og legger det tilbake på rommet. Han sa at jeg var veldig frekk for at vi tokk ned brusene i diskoteket, som vi trudde var en stor stue for gjestene som var der. Vi fikk beskjed at vi kunne kjøpe brus der vis vi ville. Det viste vi ikke, for baren var jo stengt. Da kjøpte vi brus der og ventet til kl 12 så vi får sett rakkttene. Vi la oss etter det. Dagen etter ble det ned til byen og sto på slalom hele dagen, eller til klokke fire. Kom tilbake på hotellet, ikke noe å gjøre en at barna ser på hver sin telefon, eller ser på tv. De hadde verken ikke noe kort eller noe spill som kan lånes, og heller ikke noe som utføre noe aktivitet med barna. Da ble vi enig om å dra hjem istedenfor, med 4 timer kjøring. Vi skulle egentlig være der helt til søndag. Det er veldig synd at det ble slik. Det var det værste kundeservice jeg har opplevd, og dårlig tilbud for familier. Her skal vi aldri mer og anbefaler ikke for familer. This is the worst hotel we have experienced. Here we were to experience a new celebration for the new year of the whole family, Friday to Sunday !. We were 10 pieces. The children are from 4 to 15 years old. Our expectations of the hotel should be fine, until we arrived. They write on the ad that they have a slalom slope right outside, and yes they have, but which is not in operation due to it becoming too expensive to produce snow as they said. And we have been looking forward to this. The sauna was not in operation either. We had 4 course food which tasted very good on the night before New Year. We went down to the basement for food, there was dance floor and music. and it was just us in the family who were down there and no one else. It looked more like a very large living room with lots of sofas. Since it was just us down there, we asked to change music, since they only played old-fashioned music that the kids did not like. They did not. An old man who worked there went up and back. The kids were bored. There was no play or play for the kids. The kids saw that there was ping pong there. When the ball bounced at the door, the old man took the ball and shook his head. We asked if we could borrow to play. No, he said. Then the kids sat on the couch again and got bored. Eventually my son came down and took some soda so we could have a drink there. The old man took all the soda on the table. I walked over to him and asked why he did it. What I got was an answer from him that I was simply rude. I did not quite understand what he meant and asked him. He said we are in a hotel and why should we bring any drinks down. He also told me if I have never been to a hotel before. Then I asked him to get the soda back and put it back in the room. He said I was very rude for us to take down the soft drinks in the disco, which we thought was a large living room for the guests who were there. We were told that we could buy soft drinks wherever we wanted. We did not show that, because the bar was closed. Then we bought soft drinks there and waited until 12 o'clock so we can see the racks. We went to bed after that. The next day it was down to town and slalom all day, or until four o'clock. Came back to the hotel, nothing to do one that the kids are watching their respective phones, or watching tv. They had neither a card nor a game that could be borrowed, nor anything that performed any activity with the children. Then we agreed to go home instead, with 4 hours drive. We were actually supposed to be there until Sunday. It is a great pity that this happened. It was the worst customer service I have experienced, and poor offer for families. We will never go here again and do not recommend for families..

Internet in the lobby only. The room was not the cleanest I have seen but okay. The worst was the loud noise from the toilet. About every 35 seconds there was a five second long sound like pouring a couple liters of water down a drain pipe. This was actually so loud it could be heard from the parking lot albeit with the 2 doors open. This continued the entire night. I told the hotel about this and they acted quite surprised. I said it was quite strange the person that cleans the room did not notify about this. I don’t quite believe that they didn’t know about it. They should have offered me a considerable discount but did not. I will not be staying there again anytime soon.

The place where supposed to be located 20 min from the centre of Geilo in the brochure. It took us 45 minutes on bumpy roads to reach the place. We had a room connected to the hotel and it was terrible. Non-adjustable owen, 26 degrees and the history´s worst and most dirty bathroom. On our second day we had dinner, and I found a giant hair in my soup. This can happen, and when I asked the waitress if she could put a note on it to the management she said yes. When we checked out I asked for a discount because of this, but the manager/owner refused and started a discussion with us in front of the line with other guests. embarrassing and unintelligible.. If you have other choices, don´t go here. Maybe this was bad luck, but we´ll never come back..

Good location. View of Skurdal lake. Clean room with lots of space. We just spent the night after gatherting at an old friends local cottage - the anniversery of the cottage! Good breakfast and friendly staff. Quite exspnsive, but I guess that is a general problem with the Norwegian tourist industry.

We were booked into this place by a relative with a place in the area & they let us stay even though it was strictly speaking out of season. Despite this they preapred big delicious breakfasts every day. Rooms are basic, in summer months they could do with thicker curtains to keep out the sun. Great views of the lake. Heated bathroom floor was nice, as we experienced snow one day. Tea/ coffee/ hot chocolate was available in the lounge, which has comfortable sofas, library of Norweigan (only) books & an electronic piano. You do have to go outside to reach some rooms & this could be cold in winter but wasn't a problem for us. Seems to be family run who were helpful & friendly. Free wifi in the lounge.

When visiting Norway we took a trip to Geilo for 2 nights of skiing and relaxation. After looking at the main resorts in Geilo, we stumbled upon the Lia. It was significantly cheaper ($100 US). However, it is about 15 minutes drive outside the town, and while very scenic is is also quite remote. The common areas were rustic and felt like traditional ski lodges, but the rooms were pretty dated and not exactly the cleanest. The owners were hospitable and willing to transport to/from the train station as well as the ski mountain for a minimal fee ($5 US). Continental breakfast was complimentary and the restaurant offered good dinners for reasonable prices. Another nice surprise was that the Lia offered ski rentals at fairly inexpensive rates. Overall it was a modest accommodation in an expensive area.
