Great hot chocolate with rum (aka lomumba) enjoyed on the terrace overlooking the slopes and valley at Hemsedal. Well worth a couple of extra kroner compared to Alpin Lodge

The place is cool, the view fantastic, and the menu rather exciting, with a celebrity chef fronting. However, the service was not up to expectations. Long time before we were given the menus, and the water and drinks took ages to get. The bread came at the same time as the main course. And the food was ok, but nothing... More

Having returned only 5 days ago, we are really missing the Skarsnuten hotel! We had been looking forward to our trip to Norway ever since booking. We were certainly not disappointed! From the moment we arrived, the staff couldn't be faulted. We were always greeted with a smile, they seemed just as happy to be there as we did! The... More

You can reach the restaurant by ski. The restaurant is part of the hotel and has a fantastic view. It's rather full during ski season and I would recommend booking. High standard and very good and fast service. My salmon burgher was just fine but my friends were very happy about the pizzas and my wife regretted not having order... More

Skarsnuten Hotel sits above all the ski lodges in Hemsedal and commands s lovely view. We had a light lunch there on a cloudy day when the skiing wasn't inviting enough. The decor is modern Nordic and sumptuously finished. Lunch was tasty and elegantly served by our very efficient and sweet waitress. Highly recommended.

Ignore last year's reviews, 2015 is where it starts – new chef, new menu, new team, five stars. Skarsnuten Hotell is heaven, and it just got better. This season celebrity chef Geir Skeie arrived with his full restaurant team. The food is out of this world, every meal was phenomenal. The kitchen specialises in fish, and yet the lamb dish... More

The hotel is beautiful! It is located in a wonderful area just close to the ski slope. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The breakfast is fantastic. The only negative point is the very expensive restaurant with bad service although the food was very good.

Description
Etween east and west, on the edge of a mountain shelf 1000 meters above sea level, you will find Skarsnuten Hotel. Majestically placed with a spectacular view over Hemsedal and the mountains.
The hotel has a modern Scandinavian design, with a pure expression and extensive use of natural materials.

With us, good food and drink is an important part of the experience. The restaurant serves food and wine in harmony with friendliness and warmth.

The nature surrounding the hotel invites to numerous experiences, summertime and wintertime. The ski center is our closest neighbor and our guests appreciates the fresh air and out door activities, both private visitors and guests belonging to a group or conference. The balance between modern architecture and good old fashion hospitality makes it easy to enjoy life at Skarsnuten..
