When You are looking for an elegant lunch and tired of skiing go to Skarsnuten hotel. Easy to reach from the ski-slopes. More expensive than the ordinary lunch-places in the ski-system but well worth it. Sitting in an elegant room with panoramic view is amazing...More

I spent an afternoon at their bar and restaurant and I felt in love with the stunning view from the terrace, the welcoming staff and the very cosy atmosphere! Worth a look!

The Gin bar is the best and worth a visit alone! Great drinks and nice atmosphere. Fantastic view. Mostly fish on the menu. Food is ok, service is a bit slow.

Was staying at the Skarsnuten self catering apartments on a late book deal. We reserved a table for the one special meal we had planned to enjoy during our week ski. And what a meal it was. We walked in about 4pm and reserved a...More

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...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...More

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..
