“Good food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

After a long skiing trip this is a great place to stay. Although the rooms are a bit small this is more than compensated for by the amazing food and the great service by Karola and André.
The gorgeous sauna is a real treat.

Thank you very much for your nice and honest review. It is important to mention that our rooms are not spacious, it is not possible to make them bigger and we do not want our guests to pay that either. But our focus the next years will be to make them even more cosy, hope you will find your way back to us!

After visiting Norsk Kjoletekniske Mote i Oslo I stayed one week at Hindseter. Several times I passed it on my way to Gjendesheim, this year I decided to try it out! Andre picked me up fom Otta railwaystation and I arrived just in time for the dinner. Unbelievable, first an explanation about the dinner, Carola gave wine advise ect, it looked more as an real hotel than as a Fjellstue!
The first morning again surprised, what a breakfast buffet, hard to start afterwards for my first skitur! Nice area with a lot of possibilties for cross country skiing. Every evening the dinners surprised me, using most local fresh products > Gubrandsdal brun ost ice dessert > very special Karola! Even if there are only a few guests high quality! And than that lovely Kultur-sauna and bubble bath in the basement, fantastic every day after the skiturs.
So I will come back here again may be already this summer. If you ever drive the beautifull road 51( Valdresflya veien) do'n hestitate to stop at Hindseter, you won't regrette it!

Karola & Andre takk igen for sist

I stayed with a friend in february 2013. Nice helpfull owner. Everyday the skiing tracks were tracked. Great skiing tours possible. But snowshoeing " on your own path" was great too. We made are own tracks looking for elks (but didn't encounter one)
The atmosphere is very " originally Norwegian" The rooms are not " the biggest" but there is a very cozy and spacious " livingroom" with a fire place. And if you can't without the internet, there is Wifi too.
When you like to do different activities: The winter package is great.
The food was very good, we had an outside diner in minus 18. Everything was cold and/or frozen within minutes (even the wine) But it was a great experience.

This wonderful mountainhotel takes you back in time in a very pleasant way; the decor of the diningroom and lounge is rustic and appropriate for the setting. The view from most rooms and the terrace is breathtaking and inviting. The rooms are of the kind you would expect in a hotel that merely houses walkers, climbers and naturelovers, simple but adequate enough. I only thought the bathrooms were too outdated. But the biggest surprise was the food, both the breakfastbuffet as the threecourse dinners were the best we had in Norway during our four week stay! Hindseter has a fantastic cook, a warm landlady and a nice young staff. Go there and lavish yourselves! (if you can afford it; Norwegian prices...)

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the valley!

The exterior of the hotel is painted black, which seems strange to Americans but is a popular color for buildings in that part of Norway. The only other colors used on buildings seem to be red and mustard.
There are some hiking trails nearby, which we went on.
The breakfast was good.
